Solange’s A Seat at the Table was inspired by a British-Ghanaian artist
Solange Knowles’ post on her Saint Records page on Instagram on Friday was used to thank British-Ghanaian painter, poet and writer, Lynette Yiadom-Boakye.
In the post, Solange said, “Thank you #Lynetteyiadom for being a great source of inspiration and courage during my writing process… This one is for you… Check out lyrics and a photo from the #aseatatthetable album on www.solangemusic.com.”
Lynette Yiadom-Boakye became the first black woman to be shortlisted for the Tate Museum’s Turner Prize in 2013.
This wasn’t the only time that Solange credited Lynette in the past week. She also sent a list of people who were the inspiration for ‘A Seat at the Table.’ Alongside Lauryn Hill’s MTV Unplugged No. 2.0, D’Angelo’s Africa and many others was Lynette Yiadom Boakye.
According to Solange, she has been working on the album for four years
