Solange made the most of her inaugural performance on Saturday Night Live, where she soulfully belted two spirited renditions of standout tracks from her third studio album, A Seat at the Table.

The 30-year-old kicked off her stint at Studio 8H with a performance of “Cranes in the Sky,” during which she sported a glistening dress as she softly crooned the cut’s lyrics. She followed up “Cranes” with a gorgeous version of “Don’t Touch My Hair,” rocking a fierce, natural look as she grooved through the R&B tune.

A Seat at the Table — released eight years after the singer dropped her sophomore LP, Sol-Angel and the Hadley St. Dreams, in 2008 — debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in October, becoming her first studio collection to do so.

SNL airs Saturdays at 11:30 p.m. ET on NBC. Watch Solange sing “Cranes in the Sky” above, and check out her soaring performance of “Don’t Touch My Hair” below.
