Beyoncé Interviews Solange

Solange sister whose critically acclaimed "A Seat at the Table" album was a fan favorite in 2016 is Interview Magazine’s latest cover star, and the interview was done by none other than her sister, Beyoncé.

"I'm so happy to interview you because, clearly, I'm your biggest fan and I'm super proud of you," Beyoncé said.

 “Growing up in a household with a master class such as yourself definitely didn’t hurt,” she said. “And, as far back as I can remember, our mother always taught us to be in control of our voice and our bodies and our work, and she showed us that through her example.”

“But I do have—and I’m unafraid to say it—a very distinctive, clear vision of how I want to present myself and my body and my voice and my perspective. And who better to really tell that story than yourself?” she said. “Which is a huge part of why I wanted you to interview me for this piece. Because the album really feels like storytelling for us all and our family and our lineage. And having mom and dad speak on the album, it felt right that, as a family, this closed the chapter of our stories.”

"I remember having so much perspective about my voice, and how to use my voice, at such a young age—whether it was through dance, poetry, or coming up with different projects," Solange said. "I guess I always felt a yearning to communicate—I had a lot of things to say. And I appreciated y'all's patience in the house during all of these different phases."
