Solange sat down for an interview with Interview Magazine, and instead of having a journalist who likely only knows her through what they’ve read interview her, she was interview by none other than her own sister, Beyoncé.
As the two women sat down to talk, as we assume they usually do, Beyoncé started out by 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.
Solange spoke about getting into music as a kid:
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 spoke about her new album, Seat at the Table:
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.
To which the Queen said:
Well, it brought tears to my eyes to hear both of our parents speak openly about some of their experiences…
And finally, the most important question of all was asked when Bey said:
And, honestly, growing up, how did I do as a big sister?
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.
If I ever had a sister, I would want her to be Beyoncé … DUH.
