It’s always nice to see strong and beautiful women uplifting and supporting each other like singers and good friends Solange Knowles and Janelle Monáe. When the two were spotted having a grand old time behind a DJ booth at a celebration for Ferrari’s Chairman Luca di Monetezemolo, something clicked. Janelle was in her signature black and white, Solange looked fun and flirty in her dress, and they seemed to be enjoying each other. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could see a lot more of them together?

Considering that each of the ladies are talented artists in an industry full of gimmicks, we would love to see them team up on an album, a la Jay-Z and Kanye West’s Watch The Throne — Watch The ‘Fro, perhaps– wouldn’t that be worth seeing? Who wouldn’t want to see that pairing in the studio together? If we can’t have an album together, we’ll take each lady releasing an album and going on tour.

Or how about as a design team working on a clothing line? It would obviously need to include elements of both women’s style: classic silhouettes in black or white for Janelle and funky Bohemian trends for Solange. Better yet, funky silhouettes in black and white would be true to both women.

To be honest, these women could team up for just about anything and it will do well because this is a duo worth watching. Seriously, anything, I wouldn’t mind seeing a beauty blog written by the two of them: brows to die for, skin, lips, and lashes always on point: spill the deets. Who else enjoys seeing Solange and Janelle’s friendship? This gorgeous duo is definitely one worth watching.

    Yes, an album with the two of them teaming up would be SOOOO awesome! Love to see talented and unique black female performers sticking together. They are both so beautiful (especially Ms. Monae).

      LMAO! I laugh, but I’d pay too. (Don’t tell anybody)

  • OSHH

    Nah, I’d just take the next suite from Janelle though, ready for the next chapter!!!!!!
    Solange is not on par with Janelle musically IMO. I would like to see Janelle do something with 3 Stacks or someone like Santogold.

      I agree with Santigold- that seems more fitting. With Solange, I got the feeling she was trying too hard on “Sol-Angel And The Hadley St. Dreams” whereas Janelle’s “The ArchAndroid” came off seamless and effortless.

    • Whatever

      Janelle Monae and Santogold would be a great mash up. Interesting combination. I like Solange and thought her last album had a few great songs on there but I don’t put her in the “artist” box. As hard as she tries to be “different” and “down” it still comes off as forced. I’ll wait to see what her next album is like.

      I agree. I love Santigold!

    I like both of them. I love Solange’s dress! With a little more coverage in the middle for me though…

    I like both too, but I think both need to pursue (cement) another solo project before any collaborative projects emerge. But I like also what you suggest in them collabing in other fields. Both have unique fashion styles, are natural hair wearers, etc. They could do other ‘art’ and not just ‘music’.
