Solange Performs A Captivating Medley Of "Rise" And "Weary" On 'Jimmy Fallon'
Solange brought her one-of-a-kind artiste to the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon Thursday night (Dec. 15), where she performed two cuts off her chart-topping album, A Seat at the Table.
For her performance selection, the Houstonian belted out the album's opener "Rise," and "Weary." In a previous interview with Stereogum, Solange shared her thought process when she embarked on this musical journey.
"Overall, I set out to make an album about self-discovery and empowerment and independence," she said. "The idea of having to fully understand where you’re from — when I say that, I mean it in a variety of ways, not just your history but some of the family heirlooms and traumas that might have been passed down to you, your overall existence — I set out to create a body of work that reflected that. I had a strong yearning for that. And obviously, a huge part of that is my identity as a black woman."
