A torch burns in the opening shot as Coi carries this fire throughout the clip. Back in beast mode, she raps intensely before delivering a knockout hook as flames rise at some moments and snow falls in others. Signaling her duality, it showcases her contagious energy as her personality practically jumps off the screen.

Once again, she burns the boundaries between pop and hip-hop with incendiary spirit. It also follows up the steamy music video for “Slide” featuring Gunna. Within a few weeks, it has already posted up 2.8 million views on YouTube. HYPEBAE included it among “Best New Music Of September” and dubbed it “sultry.”

Be on the lookout for more new music soon! For now, “Rick Owens” never looked so fiery…

SOLANGE × PETER LINDBERGH

ANOTHER MAGAZINE RELEASES BONUS PHOTOS FROM SOLANGE’S AVANT-GARDE SHOOT WITH PETER LINDBERGH

 
ANOTHER MAGAZINE AUTUMN/WINTER PRINT COVER FEATURING SOLANGE ON STANDS THIS WEEK
 

Today, AnOther Magazine’s Autumn/Winter cover story with songwriter, recording artist, and visual art luminary Solange is available on stands, with additional photos from the provocative shoot appearing online now.

 
The high fashion, art and culture magazine this month features Solange in an avant-garde pictorial by Peter Lindbergh and interview by Lynette Nylander. The full story and exclusive online photos can be viewed here: http://www.anothermag.com/fashion-beauty/10141/the-full-story-solange-knowles-for-another-magazine-a-w17

“Magazine making is all about creating surprises and world firsts. Solange wearing Rick Owens on the beach lensed by Peter Lindbergh is fashion and cultural history. I am honored that Solange chose to work with AnOther Magazine for our Autumn/Winter cover. She represents a new feminine beauty that is confident, defiant and fearless. A perfect fashion cover for our time.” – Jefferson Hack, Group Editorial Director of Dazed Media

Solange Knowles is a woman whose ability to connect with people and her own heritage is unprecedented. She is among the strongest creative voices of her generation: fiercely independent and uncompromising. We are very proud to have her on the cover of this issue, photographed by the Peter Lindbergh, styled by Robbie Spencer, and wearing clothes designed by equally independent and uncompromising fashion designers.” – Susannah Frankel, Editor-in-chief of AnOther Magazine

The print edition of the story is on stands Wednesday in London and everywhere else Thursday, September 14th.

 

Find quotes from Lynette Nylander’s AnOther Magazine article about Solange below:

“If ever proof were needed that Knowles is a symbol of her times it is here. Because whether through her digital platform, her live shows or her intimate albums, she offers many a sense of belonging they have never felt before, a feeling that they are not alone.”


“With cultural conflicts and intergenerational racism prevalent in American headlines, she chose to embrace the pain expressed in the media.” 


“She set up shop on an old sugar plantation and used the experience to spiritually connect with her ancestry, which is rooted in the Southern state, embarking on what she called “a pursuit of truth and beauty”. The results are generational anthems that cut through in a similar way to Billie Holliday’s Strange Fruit and Nina Simone’s Young, Gifted and Black.”  


“I sense that she has become a conduit for a previously unspoken message: the tiredness that black people feel every day about the lack of progress there has been since the stories told by their parents’ parents, and in these admissions she’s appealing to a black audience without alienating a white one.”


“She has compounded a personal narrative and has taken it public, creating a dialogue with [people of color] all over the world – those who not only just get it, they live it. Knowles empowers them through any indignity suffered, imbuing them with the confidence to be unapologetically black.”
