If you needed proof that there's something bigger than us all, Solange is it.

Solange is the definition of a class act. Thought, style and innovation go into everything she does, and it's all always perfectly, effortlessly executed. If she wasn't a figure of such magnificence, it'd be kind of easy to resent her for being so damn great, but that's not really an option when she's releasing incredible, year-defining albums and giving me horrendous coat envy at every opportunity.

So instead, I'll settle for wondering at her brilliance from afar. The latest reason to do so came last night, during her performance on Jimmy Fallon's The Tonight Show, where she delivered a medley of "Rise" and "Weary" from her album A Seat at the Table. Resurrecting one of the "Cranes in the Sky" music video's many iconic looks, the four minute long performance included Solange's signature simple but deliberate choreography, as well as a faultless vocal and a set that will make you want to repaint your entire room bright red.

Let me just give you a warning. Watching this will give you the same feeling as you might get from gazing at the stars on a clear night: you will feel as though you are in the presence of something bigger than yourself, and you will feel great about it.
