Solange sang “Cranes In The Sky” on this week’s “SNL.” The song is the first single she released from her new album A Seat At The Table. See the video below of Solange’s performance of “Cranes In The Sky” on “Saturday Night Live.”

This marks the first time Solange has been the musical guest on “SNL.” Her sister Beyonce has had the honor twice before. Beyonce’s first stint as the musical guest was in 2003, and then she returned in 2008.

The music video for “Cranes In The Sky” features Solange in various indoor and outdoor locations, wearing a variety of eye-catching dresses in different colors. At times, she’s seen singing the song alone, and in other shots she’s joined by a group of women, whose outfits are color-coordinated with Solange’s clothes. The video was directed by Solange and her husband Alan Ferguson. Since being uploaded on October 2, the video has been viewed more than 5.6 million times on YouTube.

Not long after its release, “Cranes In The Sky” landed on the Billboard charts. It reached number 74 on the Hot 100 chart and number 28 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.
