Solange covers the Summer 2013 issue of Brooklyn Magazine where she talks about her life, family and career. Some excerpts below:

On her decision to move to New York for her son’s sake: “We were living in LA and I was writing and recording this album literally between the hours of 9am and 3pm every day because that was the time that Julez was in school. We were completely isolated, we didn’t have any family or long-term friends there, and we didn’t have that support system built in there that we have in New York. We really wanted Julez to have the experience that we had growing up — being able to drop in on his aunt’s house and being able to hang out with Grandma and see our friends and have that experience of actually having a soccer game and having family show up.”

Managing being a single, working mother: “Is definitely a balancing act, and it is not at all easy. I do the best I can, which involves a lot of saying no to things, actually, and a lot of really organized scheduling and a lot of help, to be honest. That was one of our major incentives to moving here.
