Solange took the stage on Saturday night for SNL and gave an ethereal performance of “Cranes In The Sky” and “Don’t Touch My Hair” (accompanied by Sampha) from her hit album A Seat At The Table.
It was a night of firsts for the singer: the first time performing a track from her album live on television and her first appearance on the weekly comedy sketch show.
Fans tuning into the performance were left speechless with one tweeting, “Solange is being her best black self tonight. On #SNL. Love it. #solangeonsnl.”
Solange is legit on #SNL telling America to not touch our hair. She's doing the Lord's work.— Sylvia Obell (@SylviaObell) November 6, 2016
Happiness is when you walk in from a perfect evening out and see Solange and Sampha dancing and singing on #SNL.— Sona S Kaur Rai (@sona_here) November 6, 2016
Fans immediately fell in love with “Cranes In The Sky” after it’s release viewing it almost 6 million times on YouTube and “Don’t Touch My Hair” is just as loved with over 7 million views. A Seat At The Table is Solange’s first number one album on the Billboard 200.
