Solange Knowles' song Losing You should be a MASSIVE hit

So why isn't it?

This is the cutest fucking song I have heard in ages. and the video is cute too.

Because of the stupid sample of the woman screaming in EVERY measure of the song. That's why. It's annoying, and ruins the song.

Solange's melange is heard as derivative crap and the fact that her puss has been split wider than the Holland Tunnel in the greaseball music biz pass-around hasn't helped. And Bouncey realllllly wants her to fail.

It's totally the dying cat noises and beeps in the music. ANNOYING.

I wouldn't have noticed the "scream" if OP hadn't mentioned it. I'm more bothered by her apparent glorification of life in the slums of Johannesburg. The song's not terrible, but not on par with Beyonce's best.

I didn't mention the scream I think the sample is perfect.

OP, you are LATE!!!!! I posted this vid on DL days ago.

I love the vibe of this video. She's totally giving me Janet circa 1997's "Got 'til it's Gone" with the African motifs, '70s fashions and crazy hair.

really OP? I just caught her on Fallon and came here to post about how gawd-awful I thought she was.....boring song performed boringly.

The song is great. Catchy, airy, light, and miles apart from the Euro dance music that has taken up the top 40. Solange dares to be different, which is highly commendable.

Oh, and screechy looped sample be damned. That opening segment of the song is hot.

I like the song. The video is odd because it needs some closeups.

Here's the Losing You teaser, shot in Brooklyn. Solange said she got the idea of the passing the papers by kissing thing from "Clueless".

Maybe there aren't any closeups because Solange is afraid it will show her wrinkles.

Still mad that this incredibly smooth-like-silk pop confection flopped while Solange's older sister Beyonce drops massive turds all over the rest over the universe, including the presidential inaugural ball and the Super Bowl.

Solange's entire EP is hot. Better than anything out there at the moment. She's an artist who refuses to be put into a box.

Saw her at Pitchfork Festival - she's very cute, much better live than I was expecting, and I have to appreciate that Beyonce's hipster kid sister appears to attract the hipster kid brother versions of the queens in the front row at any given Bey concert.

Is OP, like, a 9-year-old girl?

I ask because, you know, she, like, mistakes "cute" for a word of praise.
