We were all dressed up in our neon orange power suits, PBRs in hand (naturally), and about to bounce over to the most hipster pool party this side of Garden State—AKA the one featured in Solange's new video for the trippy, hypnotic "Losing You"—when we realized something:

It's better to be Solange than Beyoncé. You get all the perks of being Queen B (Solange got to be in the "Get Me Bodied (Extended Mix)" video, after all! Holy friggin' jealousy!!!) and none of the pressure. So if you put out a super dope record, such as this one, you're going above and beyond.

It's equivalent to being Prince Harry, getting the keys to the castle (literally) while mainting the right to go to Las Vegas and get ass-naked without causing a monarchy meltdown. Or being Jay and Bey's future second born instead of suffering the burden of Blue Ivy-dom.

Solange doesn't have to be omni-bootylicious or perform insane choreography in even more insane heels (in reality, she just bops along to the beat, how relatable is that?!). She gets to focus her energy on being awesome and wearing awesome floral cardigans and having awesome times with her awesome friends.

Hey, it's good to be B. But maybe better to be Solange.
