Solange is gracing the March cover of @Billboard and inside the issue, she opens up about how her relationship with her dad #MathewKnowles is being revitalized.
She says that while recording #ASeatAtTheTable, she interviewed Mathew and Tina Lawson which led her to a deeper understanding of them.
I knew I wanted to interview my parents when the album was done because I knew that if I interviewed them earlier in the process, it would shape and mold the way I personally related to my experience in New Iberia,” Solo tells Billboard. “Obviously, my parents are divorced, and getting the two of them in a room together was a powerful moment in time.”
“They really led the conversation,” she continued. “I felt that because of my yearning to know, they were honest with me. I understood my father so much more. To sort out my adolescent and young adult years, there was still so much I needed to know because our relationship was not always very good. It’s still very much a work in progress. But I think I have a much clearer idea of the trauma that he experienced and how it felt like it was then generationally passed on to me.”
As for Miss Tina, Solange said that she understood how she felt. “Heard it my whole life!” she said.
