WVAU’s #4 Song of 2016: "Cranes in the Sky" by Solange Knowles


Calkie Fisseha

I constantly make the mistake of agreeing to write about things I am too emotionally invested in. “Cranes in the Sky‰” is one of them. As I sit here writing about what this song means to me and this hell of a year we‰’ve all had, I decided to delete everything I‰’ve already said. I don‰’t need to prove this song‰’s worth. Who can turn pain and turmoil into a catchy song with beautiful visuals? SOLANGE KNOWLES. THAT‰’S WHO. All I can say is listen to this song with your eyes closed and you‰’ll see why it‰’s one of the best of 2016.
