Nokia Music and Verizon launched the Late Night at Arlyn Studios Concert Series last night at Raptor House in Austin, TX with an intimate performance by Solange who brought the room to their feet turning the legendary studio into a dance floor.
The forty-five minute set included her latest single, "Losing You" from her critically acclaimed EP:True, with collaborator Dev Hynes. True is reflective of her journey as an artist, bringing listeners a fresh new sound, "with a breezy fusion of singer-centric R&B, 1980's pop, and lanky mid-tempo hip-house beasts," as described by Spin Magazine. Along with her success as a DJ, Solange previously released two albums, Solo Star (2003) and Sol-Angel and the Hadley St. Dreams (2008), which entered the top ten of Billboard's 200 Chart.
Solange's performance was streamed live by Verizon on Sunday night. You can watch the streaming video of Solange's performance using the Verizon 4G LTE network at www.verizoninsider.com/nokiamusicverizon.
