Solange recently posted a new song on her blog (Hadley Street Journal) called “Fuck The Industry (Signed Sincerely)”. Here’s what she had to say about why she wrote the song:
When I heard Kanye’s “Everything I Am” I instantly fell in love. I felt my story somewhere in his. I felt his frustration yet acceptance of who he was. So I decided to put my own little twist on it:)
She also disclaims on her blog that this song isn’t directed towards anyone specifically. And that she just basically felt like expressing herself and also felt that this song “could relate to everybody”. My favorite line is, “I’m not apologetic, if you don’t like it it’s probably because you don’t get it.” Woo, go Soloooo, I’ve been rockin with you since “Sky Away” and can’t wait for the album!
