On Saturday night, Solange performed for the first time on Saturday Night Live as the musical guest. The singer/songwriter performed two singles - Don't Touch My Hair and Cranes in the Sky - off of her third album, A Seat at the Table. She was ethereal, graceful and in the tumultuous U.S. of America, gives zero fucks. She sported head-to-toe white looks that coordinated with her backup singers and band members. Rebellion was stated by the silver Proenza Schouler boots.
The shining star, akin to Barb from Stranger Things, was Sampha.
Yes, the musical guest of the night was Solange, but we must not forget the presence of Sampha. Sampha sang, wrote (the hook) and co-produced Don't Touch My Hair. While Solange glowed in her Selena-esque outfit, Sampha looked regal in his.
Sampha Sisay, who goes by the stage name, Sampha, is a singer/songwriter and producer from South London, United Kingdom. He recently played at The Drake Underground in Toronto to a sold-out standing crowd.
Sampha danced his way in at the beginning of the hook only to stealthily hide behind the backup singers during the verses. And repeat. Sampha graced us in a textured off-white shirt, pants and sneakers. I want his look when I vote. I want his look when I go to Seychelles. I want his look right now while I am having coffee.
