This song has been circulating on the web for the past few weeks now, but even if you have heard it before, it is certainly worth a second listen. After Solange Knowles (along with her older sister Beyonce and Jay-Z) was spotted at a Grizzly Bear show in Brooklyn, singing along to practically every song, she immediately gained respect amongst the indie crowd. Since then, Knowles has collaborated with of Montreal for their upcoming album (Knowles was also brought onstage at the group’s show in New York City to perform a cover of the Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back”) and recently recorded a soulful remix of the Dirty Projector’s “Stillness is the Move”.

Backed by Dr. Dre’s “Xxplosive” beat off of his hip-hop masterpiece 2001, Solange shows that Beyonce isn’t the only one in her family with a powerful voice.

This week on The Sarah Silverman Program, two of the most subversive, non sequitur, absurdest comedians in entertainment joined forces to make some of the weirdest scenes ever recorded. Andy Samberg guest stars as Troy Bulletin-Board, Sarah’s imaginary childhood friend who comes back into her life after being “murdered” by her father when she was a child (if you watch the show, you wouldn’t bat an eye at that statement).

Andy and Sarah frolic through an epic fantasy land that includes hot air balloons, rainbows, hamburger hoses, and of course, the Loch Ness monster.
