If you’re anything like me, you know hearing about Beyoncé and Solange in unison or any sort of “togetherness” is sorta like seeing a unicorn during a full moon.
It kinda never happens.
Luckily for us (and many disconnected sisters out there), Bey got a chance to sit down and interview her baby sister, Solange in the new issue of Interview Magazine and the results were heart-warming and emotional AF.
Even before the interview got deep, Queen Bey hit it out the park by saying how proud she is of Solange and her independent accomplishments saying:
“Well, it is a bit strange, because we’re sisters and we talk all the time, to be interviewing you. But I’m so happy to interview you because, clearly, I’m your biggest fan and I’m super proud of you.”
While the whole world is fighting to be Queen of the fandom of her Beyhive, she’s her sister’s number one fan. (What an honor!)
Solange also detailed her childhood and her various mediums of artistry:
“I remember having so much perspective about my voice, and how to use my voice, at such a young age — whether it was through dance, poetry, or coming up with different projects. I guess I always felt a yearning to communicate — I had a lot of things to say. And I appreciated y’all’s patience in the house during all of these different phases. They were not ever very introverted, quiet phases.”
“No, not at all. [both laugh] I remember thinking, ‘My little sister is going to be something super special,’ because you always seemed to know what you wanted. And I’m just curious, where did that come from?”
Solange also spoke about her most recent critically acclaimed record, A Seat At The Table, in which she revealed her insecurities about her family, her children and her personal life:
“For this record specifically, it really started with wanting to unravel some truths and some untruths. There were things that had been weighing heavy on me for quite some time. And I went into this hole, trying to work through some of these things so that I could be a better me and be a better mom to Julez and be a better wife and a better friend and a better sister… And having mom and dad speak on the album, it felt right that, as a family, this closed the chapter of our stories.”
“Well, it brought tears to my eyes to hear both of our parents speak openly about some of their experiences…”
Everyone’s favorite part of the interview? When Bey asked the most vulnerable question you can ask a sibling, “And, honestly, growing up, how did I do as a big sister?”
This tugged at my heart strings.
Solange replied,” You did a kickass job. You were the most patient, loving, wonderful sister ever. In the 30 years that we’ve been together, I think we’ve only really, like, butted heads… we can count on one hand.”
*Sighs* Now only if Beyoncé were my big sister and Jay Z was my brother in law. (Except, I wouldn’t hit you in an elevator Hov.)
A true family of stars, inspiring and motivating each other to be the legends that they are today.
