Makin’ Everybody Wanna Bob They Heads: Solange Covers Nicole Wray’s “Make It Hot” During London Concert

January 18, 2013  |  

What is Solo going to do next!?

If you didn’t know by now, Solange Knowles is a lover of ’90s music to the fullest. And when she’s not defending Brandy’s artistic awesome-ness against blogs on Twitter, she’s covering Nicole Wray. “Make It Hot” was everybody’s jam back in ’98, back when Missy used to do that slip and slide move across the floor, and Nicole was one of the many colorful folk that Elliot and Timbaland were producing bangers for. And clearly it’s still pretty popular, because during a recent show at XOYO in London, Solange decided to show some love to the track by covering it. Bringing out her friend Oliver Sims from the band The xx to help her perform the cut, their very colorful voices helped remind a crowd full of people why “Make It Hot” should be a staple in any iTunes list for a person who grew up in the ’90s. Check out their performance below, which really starts around the 50-second mark.

So did she make it hot? Either way, I know Wray is somewhere smiling at all this attention she’s getting once again. I think I’m going to play the original right now. And I’ve decided to post it if for you if you wanted to clown for a bit. Enjoy!

    I love Solo and her EP True goes IN

    Solange is the last person out of old DC members, Kelly, Michelle etc etc that anyone ever would have thought could make it from up under Beyonce shadow. She may be a little h o t t e r than Beyonce right now ( you have to admit Bey is kind of played & stale). Solange seemed more determined, and it seem like she took her career into her own hands. With that being said it’s aggravates me that Kelly hasn’t caught and refuse to transition into something else. Kisses down below, ice….come on Kelly take notes ! Solange had a master plan, alternatives, she re invented her style music and everything. Kelly is trying to make the same old formula work expecting different results !

      Girl You are so Right. Kelly is in her 30’s and she does not get it. She refuses to reinvinte her self just like ICE she saw one how motivation did and tried sticking to the same formula. You know maybe she is ok with mediocore.

        The industry won’t allow Kelly to be great.. It’s what sells and pays her bills. Unfortunately not even Kelly’s fans will allow her to move beyond mediocre

  • Her cover of Dirty Projectors’ “Stillness Is The Move” still gives me chills!! Those runs she was hitting at the end >>>>> Wooo chile!!! Love me some Solo!!!

  • She Speaks

    I’m sorry (but not really). I like her better than her sister. She seems more down to earth, natural, and in music for the art of it. Period.

  • vintagebrat

  • JaneDoe
