CURRENT: Cassie – “Indo”

Solange has in recent years branched out from underneath her big sister’s legendary status and carved out a niche for herself in indie’s blossoming R&B scene. Her True EP last year was the clearest signal yet of Solange’s musical talents, and she’s exceeded that with this new track from Cassie off Solange’s Saint Records compilation album, Saint Heron. Solange wrote and produced “Indo,” with Cassie delivering another strong vocal performance following her 2013 mixtape RockaByeBaby, one of the year’s best. It’s a little surprising that Cassie, who’s flirted with Top 40 success for years now, sounds more at home here than she ever has on a major label release. And Solange, whose talents behind the boards had before now gone unnoticed, proves to be one of the most versatile performers making music today.

Saint Heron is out now.
