Beyonce Wants To Work With Of Montreal

    How much credit should we be giving Solange Knowles as an integral part of her sister Beyonce’s boundary pushing career? Apparently, more than we have so far.


    In a recent interview with The Guardian, which dubbed the pop star “artist of the decade,” she lets slip toward the end an interesting dream collaboration:

    There’s so many people I’d like to work with still, but I’d like to maybe go outside of the box. My sister [Solange] has put me on to bands like [indie group] Of Montreal and some other different types of artists. I would love to do something like that on my next album.

    So let’s do a little math. Beyonce and husband Jay-Z show up at Grizzly Bear concert in Brooklyn, proclaim themselves fans, people go crazy. Sister Solange covers “Stillness is the Move,” a song by Dirty Projectors — a band who freely admits being influenced by Beyonce — that is picked up by every blog covering music in record time. Throw a little Of Montreal into the mix, and it all adds up to something pretty huge. Let the speculation begin! [You Ain’t No Picasso]
