“Who’s gonna have your back?” Solange coos on “Lost On The Way Home”, her new single with Chromeo.
Frankly, I have Solange’s back. Not because of some unexplained drama that went down in an elevator, but because Solange has talent – her own sound, style and vision. For that, she’s an artist I’ve admired and followed for some time now – since 2008 to be exact, after she released the effervescent “Sandcastle Disco”. That’s when I knew she had what it took to be known to the public as Solange as opposed to “Beyonce’s sister”.
But back to the track.
Chromeo’s undulating synths and Solange’s breathy vocals pair perfectly together on the disco-infused single. They clearly have good chemistry in the studio as this isn’t their first collaboration. Solange lent vocals to Chromeo’s “When The Night Falls” from their 2010 release, Business Casual.
“Lost On The Way Home” doesn’t need family drama to gain notice, it stands on its own. Hopefully in a short time, Bey and Sol can resolve this issue and do the same. As Solange sings on this latest ditty, “It’s going to take time, take your time”.
