Jam of the Week: “Losing You”, by Solange

This week I want to share “Losing You,” by Solange. If you’re not familiar with Solange, I’m so very, very sorry. She’s Beyoncé’s little sister, so you can probably expect she’s pretty talented. You’d be right!

The song is catchy, but the lyrics have a somewhat somber feeling. It’s a song about facing loss. If the uptempo nature of the song and all the dancing in the video are anything to go by, it’s also about facing that loss with courage, and refusing to let it break you.

Can we talk about this video? It’s amazing, there’s just so much energy in it, and it looks like Solange just absolutely loved filming it. As far as inspiration goes, I don’t really know what to tell you. I don’t own this album yet, so I only get to hear the song if I’ve got the video playing, and then it’s pretty hard to get anything done, because I’m watching the video. I can say this though: this song usually puts me in a good mood. It doesn’t get me pumped up, but it does give me a sort of contented feeling, something that makes me feel like I can face down deadlines or edit difficult term papers or whatever other task awaits me.
