Solange puts on the director’s hat for the newly issued video for “Lovers in the Parking Lot,” the second visual release from last year’s EP True.
The cinematic clip was filmed in her hometown of Houston and features the 27-year-old singer donning several florescent outfits while dancing in an empty local mall. Fellow Houston native Bun B makes a brief cameo in the clip and actually gets in on the choreography with Solange.
After the clip surfaced online, the singer tweeted, “Thank u guys for the video luv:) Means the most……! So appreciative, and so stoked for it to finally come out!!!!” She later added, “When I wrote the song, I saw the video…..& knew it had to have 2 things: 1. Mannie Fresh (I sampled his drums) 2. Lots of hair flipping.”
The funky clip will help tide fans over until Solange completes her first album for her own label, Saint Records, due later this year. The set will be her first project since 2008’s Sol-Angel and the Hadley St. Dreams.
