Solange Knowles has released a teaser of the video for her new single Losing You, shot during a recent trip to Cape Town. The locations, she said, were "inspired by the colour in the architecture and townships” in the city.
Her bright, print-heavy wardrobe, including Kenzo, Opening Ceremony, DVF, J Crew and Suno, adds to the visual spice of the promo in which she gets her snog on with a handsome fellow and hangs out with sapeurs.
Following 2008’s Sol-Angel And The Hadley St Dreams album, Solange’s recent collaboration with Blood Orange’s Devonté Hynes on Losing You introduces 1980s-style synths laid over percussive African beats.
