Solange Knowles Was The Star Of The 2017 Webby Awards
Listen, I know you don't need me, the internet or your own mother to tell you the Knowles family is everything, but I will reiterate it for you.
Last night, New York City celebrated the winners of the 2017 Webby Awards, and Solange graced the stage bringing her crazy cool vibes, amazing voice and killer fashion sense with her.
The Webby Awards are designed to celebrate and acknowledge the best, most fascinating, interesting, thought-provoking, effective and flat-out entertaining things the internet has to offer us.
Joel McHale hosted the winners ceremony and handed out the actual statues, which were designed like springs. Of course, Queen B's little sis took home the Webby Award for Artist of The Year.
The ceremony took special care to feature her site, Saint Heron, which features 11 independent artists who came together to create a collaborate album. Saint Heron's site explains,
The intent of the album, and the label at large, is to feature, highlight and align a new movement of contemporary, genre-defying R&B visionaries, which will serve as a segue into the diverse evolution of these independent artists as they share their voices and words as only they can – through pure, unadulterated music.
Perhaps the most defining detail about the night is that each winner was limited to only five words for their acceptance speech, making for profound and goofy commentary.
BUT NOT SOLANGE, YOU GUYS. Solange will up the anti, ALWAYS.
After walking on stage, Solange SANG her five words, or should we say five lyrics from the song "I Got 5 On It," originally by artist Luniz.
It was, like, awesome.
Out of curiosity, how many times do you think Bey says, "Slay, Solange, slay!"?
Not as many as I would if I were her sister and also holder to the keys of the universe, like Beyoncé.
Catch the original song below, and congratulations, Solange!
