And just like that… a new Solange album is here in its fully glory.
After dropping mystery teasers throughout the week, the R&B songstress has indeed dropped her long-awaited follow-up to A Seat at the Table, her fourth studio album titled When I Get Home.
Inspired by her Houston roots, the 19-track set includes contributions from Gucci Mane, Playboi Carti, Devin the Dude, The-Dream, Tyler, the Creator, Cassie, Earl Sweatshirt, and Metro Boomin, plus samples from H-town legends Phylicia Rashad, Debbie Allen, and Scarface.
When I Get Home, which was written, performed, and executive produced by Solange, is described as “an exploration of origin,” the press release reads. “It asks the question how much of ourselves do we bring with us versus leave behind in our evolution. The artist returned to Third Ward Houston to answer this.”
I’ve yet to give it a full proper listen, but it already sounds like a promising listen from the little I’ve heard. If you were a fan of A Seat at the Table, then you’ll find yourself falling back in love with Solange all over again. The alt-R&B Queen we deserve.
