"Y'all got it all the way wrong. Ive been writing and producing my own voice since 02, nigga … I find it very disappointing when I am presented as the 'face' of my music, or a 'vocal muse' when I write or co-write every fucking song … Sexism in the industry ain't nothing new," Solange wrote on Twitter, seemingly in response to how she thought Pitchfork depicted producer and writer Dev Hynes' role in her True EP, which included this statement: "Hynes has met an ideal female vocal muse in Solange."
