Chile, Solange just told the masses to find her on BlackPlanet and dropped new visuals. Now, there's speculation of a new album. Get into her Western stripper pole steez inside...

Solange is coming. And we're not ready.

Listen, she has Twitter in a frenzy after this tweet:

 

 

BlackPlanet?!?! Sis, BlackPlanet from back in the day? Yup! Solange has made a BlackPlant page (or resurrected her old one).

This isn't for the youngings, obviously. In case you don't know, BlackPlanet was like Facebook/Match.com for the black community before they even existed. It hit the tech scene before Facebook and Myspace, in 1999.

With this Blackplanet takeover announcement, it's clear she's up to something.

There's speculation that Solo is readying her next album, the follow-up to Grammy award winning album, A Seat At The Table. The BlackPlanet takeover news has left fans speculating the move is part of a new album rollout. On her page, she released some fresh visuals, GIFs, and cryptic text like:

"I made the pilgrimage back to the pagoda of third ward houston to answer this."

“How much of ourselves do we leave at home and how much do we carry with us forever?”

"For the bad weaves and two ways.

"I swallowed the light...."

"Threw my earnings like offerings and prayed it went to something that made her feel good."

 

Sounds like a tribute to her hometown of Houston, TX.

The imagery posted def gives off Western-like vibes. She's featured wearing cowboy boots and cowboy hats. The sepia filter is heavy on the photos for that throwback feel. There's also a pictures of black cowboys and girls.

Solo's page also lists upcoming tour dates and a place for her fans to subscribe to her newsletter. IN 2016, she announced her next album was already done, so maybe this is it.

Below are the concert dates (which are all overseas): 

 

May 30th, 2019 Heartland Festival - Kværndrup,. Denmark

May 31st, 2019 Orange Warsaw Festival - Warsaw,. Poland

June 1st, 2019 Primavera Sound Barcelona - Barcelona,. Spain

June 6th, 2019 Primavera Sound Porto - Porto,. Portugal

June 9th, 2019 Parklife Festival - Manchester,. United Kingdom

June 14th, 2019 Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival Manchester,TN. United States

July 12th, 2019 Lovebox Festival - London,. United Kingdom

Oh, and then there's this picture that has everyone in a tizzy:

It's a shot of a woman on a stripper pole, but the Internet is torn on who it actually is. Some folks believe it's her, while others are saying it's not her.

 

 

The shape of the woman in the picture does appear to be a bit different than Solo's, so it could be the woman listed above.

We're still not exactly sure what this all is, but here for it.

On the magazine front...

 

 

The 32-year-old visionary covers i-D's third and final cover of The Homegrown Issue. Her cover story will drop soon.
