Solange Dances Around An Empty Houston Mall In "Lovers In The Parking Lot"

by Abby Schreiber

In her new video, "Lovers In The Parking Lot," Solange heads back to her native Houston and dances and prances her way through vacant hallways, a basement cafeteria, a pawn shop and a local mall where Bun B used to work. The singer's as shimmery as her pop-R&B song, dressed in shiny pink hot pants, printed Jeremy Scott-type leggings and metallic lamé blouses, appearing like a sparkly orb in otherwise muted surroundings. Produced in partnership with The Creators Project (a partnership between Intel and VICE), the highly-stylized clip is ultimately simple (no complicated, cinematic plot lines here) but mesmerizing nonetheless. And -- not that this hasn't been said before -- for all of Beyoncé's greatness, it's pretty hard to play it cooler than the younger Knowles.

"Lovers In The Parking Lot" appears on Solange's True EP, out now.
