Solange Knowles Releases EP ‘True’ With A Smooth New Age Retro Sound (See Her Style Evolution To Match)

Evolution is the perfect word to describe singer, songwriter and DJ Solange Knowles and also her new EP, True. We've certainly had it on a heavy rotation already this morning.

Smooth melodies and electric beats fill the album which marks a great contrast from her debut album Solo Star released in 2003.  On True, Solange created a whimsical retro-soul album with the help of such guest talents like British musician Devonte Hynes.

Not only did her musical influences change over the last decade, but so did her personal style as she quickly rose to the ranks as fashion's "It" girl.

While you take a listen to True click through to check out Solange's style evolution.

    I love the way she has been styled over the past few years or so, but I believe that it is highly contrived ( and I am not the only one who feels this way, she is not a fashion icon, she looks great that’s it, she’s found her niche, being under her sister’s shadow she had to break out) I mean if it works for her which is apparent then so be it no hate …cue the Solange fans shooting me down

  • PopDown

    9 out of 10 times she looks busted
