The temperature is rising and Solange is to blame! The R&B songbird graces Complex Magazine’s June/July 2013 issue and she reminds women how to show off their bodies tastefully.
In the cover story, the “Losing You” singer talks about discovering her fashion style, the challenges she faces as an indie artist and the importance of living your life through no one’s eyes — but yours.
