Solange Knowles to Direct Sza’s “The Weekend!”

That #BlackGirlMagic stays poppin’, especially when two amazing artists come together on a project.

Solange Knowles and Sza are set to make some magic with the latter’s hit single The Weekend from her album, Ctrl. Sza revealed in an interview with USA Today that Solange will be directing the music video and we just know it is going to lit!

“I love her,” said SZA. “I think the universe is just bringing us closer to each other. That’s my homegirl.”

If another artist going to be in charge of the visuals for your song, it may as well be Solange. She already showed an affinity for it with a performance piece at The Guggenheim, titled “An Ode To,” and she’s debuting a new performance art piece in Texas later this fall. Allegedly, the video for “The Weekend” takes place at 10 different locations, so the duo sounds like they’re sparing no expense putting this thing together. Even if you throw out the video, the two singers have been spending a decent amount of time around each other later. Both are performing at the Afropunk Festival in Brooklyn on Saturday, and if they’re as tight as SZA makes it seem like they are, they’ll be using plenty of their backstage time to cook up some ideas together. Maybe a collaboration is in the works, because it’s fairly well known they share a mutual admiration for each other’s work.

Solange is a musical genius, and now that we think about it some of the songs from Ctrl remind us of a few of the songs from Solange’s album Sol-Angel and The Hadley St. Dreams. Are you guys as psyched about all of this as we are? Let us know what you think in the comments’ section below!

Hey Mikey!

WHO AM I?

That’s probably what you’re thinking? It’s simple I’m this generation’s “Dear Abby!” I was raised in the Fourth Ward of Atlanta, educated in the School of Hard Knocks, and rescued by the concrete and steel of New York City. Life at best will always be bittersweet. The sooner you accept that, the better off you’ll be. I’d prefer to be on your sweeter side. Everyone needs a listening ear, extra shoulder, and open arms when life gets rough. I’m your new best friend, whe it all goes south remember I’m a mouse click or tweet away. Hang in there kids, you’re gonna love kickin’ it with me!!!

-MIKEY
