Solange isn't the kind of artist to do things the easy way, and her performance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon Thursday night (December 15) hardly looked easy.
While singing a medley of "Rise" and "Weary," two songs off her new album A Seat at the Table, Solange was tied to her two backup singers. Their red jumpsuits were connected by wide ribbons of fabric, meaning that every step they took in their poised, elegant choreography had to be carefully calibrated so as not to literally trip up their dance partners.
Solange and her crew were pros, and they pulled off the look without a hitch. This wasn't your typical late-night performance, and hopefully it offered a glimpse of what we might be in for if Solange tours her new album.
