Unless you’ve been under a rock, you know the Knowles family has had an incredible year in music. With Beyonce’s Lemonade and Solange‘s A Seat at the Table, the debate of who wins the title of album of the year is a toss up.
Nardwuar, the Human Serviette is a journalist famous for his interviews with all your favorite artists, but you’ve probably never heard of him. Anyway, he’s pretty much the best interviewer in the music journalism game and has been in the scene forever.
The 46-year-old radio DJ has watched the Knowles family their entire careers and had the lucky strike of interviewing them back in 2002 when they were just on the come-up, which he recently shared.
Both interviews take place backstage in Tacoma, Washington. Solange, who was 16 at the time discusses her opinion of Eminem’s rise through 8 Mile and her background in dance.
Nardwuar even got a chance meet with everyones favorite nostalgic girl group Destiny’s Child, where Kelly Rowland is mostly seen in the clip as they rush onstage to perform.
It’s truly amazing to see how the the two sisters long before their status as world-conquering female icons.
