Behind the Video: Solange – ‘Losing You’

Solange invites her friends over for a house party in the vibrant teaser for her new single “Losing You.” The fashionista rocks Suno, Kenzo, DVF, and J. Crew in the clip, which was inspired by the 1995 movie Clueless.

“We’re playing a typical party game called ‘Suck and Blow.’ It was based on something Solange had seen in Clueless,” said director Alan Del Rio Ortiz. “She just really liked the idea of having her friends together in a room. We tried to find an interesting way to connect everyone and bring them together to show that this is her new style, her new look, her new sound. It’s kind of a reintroduction to her work.”

The film is one of her favorites. “If you haven’t seen Clueless, it will change your life. It’s such an iconic moment in time, especially for my generation,” said the 26-year-old singer.

Solange’s last album SoL-AngeL and The Hadley St. Dreams was released in 2008. “It’s been about three or fours years since I’ve put out music, so I just want to set up the project with a great visual,” she told MTV Style.

Penned by Solange and Dev Hynes and produced by Blood Orange, “Losing You” will be released digitally on October 2 via Terrible Records. Go behind the scenes below and watch the teaser here.
