    National Hug A Bear Day!

    News of the Day:

    + This weekend, Solange brought A Seat at the Table to viewers worldwide for a special performance on Saturday Night Live. Solo opened with “Cranes In The Sky,” and then Sampha joined her on stage for “Don’t Touch My Hair.” As expected, she looked and sounded amazing and completely blew us away—we couldn’t even tell that she was nervous, which she tweeted about afterward. Solange’s mother and sister also came to support her big debut, as captured here.

    + The family affair continues! Tina Lawson paid tribute to her incredible daughters, Solange and Beyoncé, by replicating some of the most iconic images from their hit records A Seat at the Table and Lemonade. Mother of the year, indeed.

    + Boiler Room x Ray Ban’s Weekender Festival was shut down by police after arresting one attendant. The two-day event was held at Split Rock Resort in Lake Harmony, Pennsylvania.
