Rise by Solange Knowles


A Seat at the Table has finally arrived, Sollange’s third full length album. The album was released early on Friday morning and may just be the most personal album she has ever made.

The 21 track album describes issues she has struggled with in her life like identity, empowerment, grief, healing and independence. Some other topics include race and identity in politics and even her relationships and family.

Saint Heron sat down with Sollange and spoke about the album in depth. She noted “We grew up in a household with two parents who constantly celebrated Blackness and created forums and spaces to empower Black communities.”

She also spoke about the encouragement and support she had from her father to make music and sing about important issues. She closed the interview on how she wanted to honour her parents for all the effort they put into her music and helping her through the bad times.
