Solange Knowles brings her eclecticism and free spirited ways to the feel-good video for “Losing You,” her new single. The singer headed to Cape Town, South Africa to shoot the clip, which was directed by Melina Matsoukas and documents the members of the colorful Le Sape Society.

“Tell me the truth, boy, am I losing you for good/ We used to kiss all night but now there’s just no use,” she coos in the video while grooving around Cape Town.

The songstress penned the track alongside songwriter and producer Dev Hynes, also known as Blood Orange. He created the ’80s pop vibe of the record.

“When Melina and I decided to film ‘Losing You’ in South Africa, we really didn’t have a real firm concept in place,” the Sol-Angel and the Hadley St. Dreams creator told Pitchfork. “It was sort of a grab a camera and let’s go moment.

“I knew I wanted to capture a couple things: the vibe of our friendship and all of the crazy escapades we’ve gotten ourselves into all over the world, and the abstract and elegant Le Sape Society (Society for the Advancement of People of Elegance) formed in the Congo which was documented by Daniele Tamagni in his Gentleman of Bacongo book. We called Daniele to guide us, and some of my friends from New York came down to Cape Town and we all had a very damn good time.”

“Losing You” is available for download via iTunes.
