It is always a big deal with a new album by Beyonce drops, and a new album certainly did just that in August 2022. The talented singer released Renaissance over the summer, and fans clamored to get a glimpse of everything from the art design to the tracklist to the time, and they could not wait to hear the music. The new album by Beyonce was a success, as it typically is for her. This new album by Beyonce marks her seventh as a solo artist, and we don’t even know how many as an artist. Remember, she was around long before she was a solo artist singing with the group Destiny’s Child. She has always been a star, and the new album by Beyonce proves this. However, it’s something else that has Beyonce in the spotlight in the fall of 2022, and it’s all about her sister.
Sisters Supporting One Another
Beyonce and Solange Knowles are sisters, and they support one another. When the new album by Beyonce dropped, Solange was quick to love it. When Solange got a new gig working on some new music, her own sister was also quick to support it. Solange, it seems, is working on musical composition for the New York City Ballet, and that is nothing short of a huge deal. Solange is the writer of a new score that debuted on October 1 at the New York City Ballet. The work is for the New York City Ballet’s Fall Fashion Gala, which is being held at Lincoln Center. It’s for Play Time, which is a show that is being performed by the dancers in the ballet, which is such an accomplishment.
Writing a piece of music for the New York City Ballet is one thing, but writing a piece that is then performed by the ballet dancers for the world is an accomplishment. To make this even more exciting for Solange, the piece is performed by the City Ballet Orchestra, one of the most talented musical groups in the world. It’s something worthwhile and completely beautiful, and this singer and songwriter are celebrating. Her sister is also celebrating alongside.
Beyonce is a Proud Sister
A new album by Beyonce dropped, and she has reason to celebrate, but she has more to say about the pride she feels in her sister than she did about her own album. “My beloved sister, there are no words to express the pride and admiration I have for you. You are a visionary and one of one. Congratulations on being the first African American woman to compose for the New York City Ballet. The piece you composed is phenomenal. I love you deep,” said Beyonce about her sister’s huge milestone. She made history with her piece on several levels, and Beyonce’s pride shows.
The Excitement is in The Air
In addition to a new album by Beyonce dropping and Solange being the first African American woman to ever compose a piece for the New York City Ballet, a lot has been going on in the world of these ladies. It seems that this work was one the ballet knew that they wanted, and they knew just who to ask. The woman behind the idea wanted Solange to work on this piece because she was looking for music that would not just entertain the crowd and give ballet dancers something to dance to. She was looking for a work of art that would keep the audience on its toes.
“There’s a lot of nuance to it. It’s exciting, for sure. That’s what I wanted; I wanted something that would kind of keep the audience on their toes,” said Gianna Reisen, who also choreographed the ballet that is being performed right now and again in May. Her goal, in the long run, is to bring in people that haven’t been to the ballet before. It’s her thought that too many people think ballet is one thing and just one thing when it is so much more than that. It’s not just the classics and the dances you’ve seen done a million times. It is a lot more than that, and it is something so much bigger than what it appears.
Congratulations to Solange for her outstanding work. Critics have nothing but amazing things to say about it. Additionally, congratulations on the new album by Beyonce. These two sisters are keeping the world excited and on their toes for sure in 2022. We have a feeling they’ll keep up that trend in 2022.
