The past few months, the singer has been teasing images from the videos on her Instagram page, and the videos certainly show that Knowles knows her visuals.
In “Cranes in the Sky,” we see Solange against several backdrops (at the foot of spiraling stairs, in the mountains, atop a house overlooking a valley, to name a few), impeccably dressed in shades of pale pink, purple, white, and beige. Our favorite moment has to be when the singer slathers herself in gold body paint with gold shimmer in her hair — because who doesn’t love to see a golden goddess come to life?
This banana-leaf ensemble is straight from the Garden of Eden — if it was an atelier, of course.
… and, of course, Solange’s signature triangle hair.
But possibly the most eye-catching of these looks is this gorgeous African-inspired sculptural hairstyle, which appears to be achieved by the threading technique and literally looks like a crown.
Check out both of Solange’s new videos below.
