Solange Knowles has released the video for Losing You. The single which was released today digitally will be available on vinyl on November 6.

The quirky video shot in Cape Town beginning of September was directed by Melina Matsoukas  when Solange was down for a photoshoot with a competing magazine.

The video features the fashionable members of  Le Sapeurs, a Congo based fashion fueled subculture. Also spotted in the video is DRUM's former fashion editor Asanda Sizani.

This is what Solange had to say about shooting the video:

" When Melina and I decided to film 'Losing You' in South Africa, we really didn't have a real firm concept in place. It was sort of a grab a camera and let's go moment.

I knew I wanted to capture a couple things: the vibe of our friendship and all of the crazy escapades we've gotten ourselves into all over the world, and the abstract and elegant Le Sape Society (Society for the Advancement of People of Elegance) formed in the Congo which was documented by Daniele Tamagni in his Gentleman of Bacongo book.

We called Daniele to guide us, and some of my friends from New York came down to Cape Town and we all had a very damn good time."
