This Video of Solange and Moses Sumney Singing a Duet Over a Nina Simone Classic Will Brighten Your Day

Solange and Moses Sumney share a duet over Nina Simone's "Where Can I Go Without You," in this Instagram clip.

Over the weekend,  Solange, fresh off a performance at Coachella, and Ghanaian musician, Moses Sumney, shared an impromptu duet over Nina Simone's "Where Can I go Without You," and—as I'm sure you've guessed—it's magical.


In a minute-long Instagram video, the two go back and fourth about whether or not Sumney smokes weed. Sumney sings "I've never smoked weed before"—in what will likely be the most ethereal way you'll ever hear those words said out loud—while, Solange, who's donning an ornate wooden headpiece, claims otherwise. “tfw the homie been saying he don't light up, but u find a lil clip on his bedside table @moses?,” read the video's caption.

Sumeny's weed-smoking status is still uncertain. We're just happy it was enough to inspire this beautiful moment between to of our favorites.

Watch the clip below.

Interview: Wavy The Creator Is Ready to See You Now

The multidisciplinary Nigerian-American artist on tapping into all her creative outlets, creating interesting things, releasing a new single and life during quarantine.

A trip canceled, plans interrupted, projects stalled. It is six months now since Wavy the Creator has had to make a stop at an undisclosed location to go into quarantine and get away from the eye of the pandemic.

The professional recording artist, photographer, writer, fashion artist, designer, and evolving creative has been spending all of this time in a house occupied by other creatives. This situation is ideal. At least for an artist like Wavy who is always in a rapid motion of creating and bringing interesting things to life. The energy around the house is robust enough to tap from and infuse into any of her numerous creative outlets. Sometimes, they also inspire trips into new creative territories. Most recently, for Wavy, are self-taught lessons on a bass guitar.

Wavy's days in this house are not without a pattern, of course. But some of the rituals and personal rules she drew up for herself, like many of us did for internal direction, at the beginning of the pandemic have been rewritten, adjusted, and sometimes ditched altogether. Some days start early and end late. Some find her at her sewing machine fixing up thrift clothes to fit her taste, a skill she picked up to earn extra cash while in college, others find her hard at work in the studio, writing or recording music.
