Yes, y’all the soul singer herself has graced the Teen Vogue music issue. And for good reason to in this issue, she unveils an empowering letter to her teenage self. It will move you and inspire you to be your absolute self as you take on this journey called life. It will also prepare you for things you didn’t know about yourself and some things you might have already known about yourself. Below is an excerpt from the letter:
there will be pain, there will be doubt there will be beauty, there will be the unknown. there will be so many moments of joy and delight that the whole universe will feel painted in hues of amber and wonder. there will be times you are so sad you can’t lift your head. and there will be times you are so happy that the sensation of life knocks you down. but most importantly, there will be you. a whole, whole lot of it. and you will feel good about who she is and who she is still becoming.
–Solange Knowles, Teen Vogue Vol. II The Music Issue
