17. "Looks Good With Trouble," Solange
Hot line: Stuck on a tall ass bus, like 14 bunks and I can’t even sleep/And I hate getting drunk so I don’t got a cup, but I’ve got James Mason on repeat"
Kendrick’s feature here is like Tom Sawyer’s makeshift craft floating along Solange’s lazy river of a song—a vehicle filled with doubt and wonder and dreams. He searches for the words to communicate his feelings, but in the process illustrates the struggle that we all have with turning our insides out for someone.
