Solange can’t sing, according to some critiques who watched her SNL performance. The 30-year-old performed “Don’t Touch My Hair” and “Cranes In The Sky” on the Saturday, November 5, 2016 episode of Saturday Night Live. Scroll down to see Twitter’s reaction plus a video of the performance.
The Houston native recently released her first number 1 album, A Seat at the Table. Solange’s hard work is paying off yet some fans didn’t enjoy her SNL performance. It has to be difficult having an older sister as successful as Beyonce. Solange and Beyonce are both talented singers yet fans insist on comparing them.

Some fans were very hard on Solange, claiming that she can’t sing nor dance:
OMG Solange Knowles can’t sing or dance on #SNL tonight

#SNL what were you thinking? Solange is the bad dancing, whispering, can’t sing Beyoncé. #alwayslivinginBeyoncesshadow

We can’t wait to see Solange on the next Mean Tweets segment. It’s difficult for her to develop an identity of her own because people can’t stop comparing her to Queen Bey.
Others argued that she was being judged unfairly:
If we’re gonna play this “Solange can’t sing” card let’s draw it for 80% of these other singers as well but y’all just wanna be haters

Okay Solange started off shaky but I think she got it after the chorus, it’s a tough song to sing

Solange delivered a stunning performance on #SNL. Wish they had allowed her to sing the full album.
