Solange is making a powerful statement about beauty standards with her new album, ‘A Seat at the Table’, which features powerful lyrics about embracing her natural hair.

The album cover features a close-up portrait of the singer with her curls flowing free and adorned with colorful duckbill clips.

Dancer, singer and huge Solange fan, Ahnari (who has her own Instagram account - pretty impressive for a 5-year-old) recreated the stunning shot.

She posed exactly like Solange, recreating her gorgeous afro hair, captioning the snap: - “When you’re a toddler but feeling Solange new album.”

Ahnari’s post has since gone viral, with hundreds of users sharing the photo - not just because of the spot-on similarity, but because it represents the new social media movement inspired by Solange’s new song: ‘Don’t touch my hair’.

The #DontTouchMyHair hashtag celebrates natural hair in all its glory, inspired by the singer’s lyrics: “Don’t touch my hair when it’s the feelings I wear... Don’t touch my crown.”

”You know this hair is my shit, rode the ride, I gave it time, but this here is mine,” Solange sings.
