Solange Knowles released her latest album ‘A Seat at the Table’, at the end of September. The American singer, songwriter, model, and actress celebrates her natural hair. The lyrics hold a strong statement for black women and the cover features a portrait with natural strands adorned with colorful duckbill clips.

Solange’s album cover art encouraged Ahnari. The cute 5-year-old girl who is a dancer, singer, and huge Solange fan posed just like Solange did.

Pictures of the the adorable girl wearing an afro, duckbill clips, lipstick were shared on Instagram: “When you’re a toddler but feeling Solange’s new album.”

Just moments after the photo stormed the internet it had a huge following.

Ahnari’s photo became viral not because the little girl looks exactly like Solange’s album cover, but because it became a symbol of a larger movement.

One of the most meaningful songs on the album “A Seat at the Table” is “Don’t Touch My Hair.” It’s actually an ode to black women. Solange is singing:

“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.”
