On Sunday, Solange Knowles stepped out for a laid-back lunch with her husband Alan Ferguson. Then she let loose via Instagram Stories: It’s one big party, as she dumped a series of clips that show her singing and dancing to different songs in various settings. The singer also shared the compilation of IG stories on her Twitter, writing “No mo’ digital hoarding taking up space, I luh y’all.”
It’s become, as stans say on Twitter, a mood.

Some clips show Solange flipping her hair and showing off different outfits in the mirror. People were quick to notice and tweet their approval for footage showing her singing along to Ariana Grande’s hit, “Sweetener,” while dancing in a car with an open sunroof; as well as a clip of her dancing on a boat to her sister Beyoncé’s song “Kitty Kat.” As @LaJethroJenkins announced, “This is not a drill. Solange is being a blessing on her IG stories. … You are welcome.”
