VIDEO PREMIERE: Solange Knowles – “Losing You” Shot In Cape Town, South Africa!

Filed under : Africa, Fashion, Pop Culture

South Africa is fast becoming the destination of choice for celebs.

Yesterday, Solange released her ultra-stylish visual for her brand new song,  “Losing You”. The video, shot and directed  by Alan Del Rio Ortiz and Melina Matsoukas, was filmed around South Africa, notably in Cape Town. It is a colorful visual montage of Solange and her friends hanging out and having fun in sunny Cape Town.

Solange said:

“When Melina and I decided to film ‘Losing You’ in South Africa, we really didn’t have a real firm concept in place. It was sort of a grab a camera and let’s go moment. I knew I wanted to capture a couple things: the vibe of our friendship and all of the crazy escapades we’ve gotten ourselves into all over the world.”

Also, Solange and co. rocked clothing from Kenzo, J. Crew, Sun and the delectable  DVF. Solange had this to say about the  colorful, vintage fashionista vibe on the optics for her track:
“We used Mickalene’s work as the initial foundation, and built upon our looks based off of her wonderful use of colors, prints and textures. So everything that we’re wearing is a reflection of that.”
“Losing You” is the A-side of Solange’s new single, out digitally October 1st, and on Vinyl, November 6th, via Terrible Records.
