Ya'll can never sleep on Solange cause sis will keep you on your TOES!!
Almost three years since she released her last project (A Seat at the Table - 2016), Ms. Knowles is coming back with a vengeance. She dropped hints of the release of a new project when she announced her take over of Black Planet (an African-American social network where members can connect for job opportunities and match making). THEN earlier today Solange reveals the release of this project! 19 songs and amazing visuals that she has clearly put her all into. MINDS BLOWN YA'LL WE ARE REALLY LOSING IT HERE!!
Now here we are at 12 AM, bumpin' our speakers just loud enough so the neighbors don't call the cops. Can you think of any other way to start the weekend?
The track list includes:
1. Things I Imagined 10. Time (Is)
2. S McGregor (Interlude) 11. My Skin My Logo
3. Down With the Clique 13. Jerrod
4. Way to the Show 14. Binz
5. Can I Hold the Mic 15. Beltway
6. Stay Flo 16. Exit Scott (Interlude)
7. Dreams 17. Sound of Rain
8. Nothing Without Intention (Interlude) 18. Not Screwed!
9. Almeda 19. I'm a Witness
Now listen ok, we all know Solange is not playing with this project. She has been an advocate for black beauty and rights her entire career and through this album, she lets it all shine through. What we love most about her style is how she merges modern day R&B with old school vibes. This is very prominent in When I Get Home. 'I'm a Witness' is a HUGE example of pure vocals and old school R&B sounds. It's a work of art.
So what are some of the cool facts we learned about 'When I Get Home'?? It's based off of her childhood home Houston, Texas!! If you notice, titles to some of her songs are named after streets that she spent her childhood in. During her take over of Black Planet, she makes the statement, "An exploration of origin... I made the pilgrimage back to the pagoda of Third Ward Houston to answer this". Solange you made Houston, Texas proud!! She also has some impressive collaborations, featuring Tyler The Creator, Gucci Mane and many more!
So Solange girl, now that you've released this incredible work of art, does that mean we can be expecting a tour coming up soon? We'll be seeing you there ma!
