I didn’t even know Beyonce had a sister until I stumbled upon Solange Knowles’ remix of Dirty Projectors’ ridiculously hot single “Stillness Is The Move” off last summers’ Bitte Orca.  She took a perfect song, and re-perfected it with the head-nodding beat from Dr. Dre‘s “Xxplosive” and a sexy ass voice.  Over the weekend, the Dirty Projectors invited the singer on stage for their performance at a NYC Fashion Week party, where they put on a dope performance of “Stillness.”  See a video of the performance, downloads of the two versions of the song, and more on Solange after the jump.

It turns out this is no fluke.  Solange gets down hard to indie.  And she clearly has some strong influence over her famous siblings Beyonce and Jay-Z whom she dragged along to last summer’s Grizzly Bear show on the Williamsburg Waterfront in Brooklyn last August.  It’s only a matter of time before we see more hip-hop/indie collaborations popping up.  See the YouTubes below for evidence:
