Solange's 'When I Get Home' Album Pays Homage To Houston & She's Snatching Souls + Beyonce Shows Sisterly Love

Solange's new album When I Get Home just dropped and it's SO Houston. More about the album, plus how big sis Beyonce showed her love inside...

Solange is here. And she's snatching souls.

At the midnight hour, Solo released her fourth studio album, When I Get Home, the follow-up to 2016's A Seat At The Table, which was released two+ years ago. Her track "Cranes In The Sky" earned the singer her first Grammy Award.

When I Get Home is an album album.

The LP features 19 tracks (including interludes) of melodic vibes that pay homage to her hometown of Houston. She's giving fans an experience across her hometown, dubbed an "exploration of origin."

 

Solange was the mastermind behind the new porject as it was written, performed and executive produced by her. She also teamed up with down south legends like Scarface, Gucci Mane, Devin the Dude, S McGregor, as well as samples from Debbie Allen and Phylicia Rashad. It also includes contributions from Pharrell Williams, Metro Boomin, The Dream, Tyler The Creator, Playboi Carti, Cassie, Earl Sweatshirt, Panda Bear, Blood Orange’s Dev Hynes, Sampha, Raphael Saadiq, and more.

Before releasing her surprise project to the masses, she teased the project by launching her new BlackPlanet page. Cryptic phrases were plastered all over her page like: “An exploration of origin" and “I made the pilgrimage back to the pagoda of Third Ward Houston to answer this.” It also featured tons of new photos of Solo, her dancers dressed in cowboy boots and hats, and a woman working her magic on a stripper pole.

 

 

Before the release, she also posted a clip of a visual and in the caption, she posted Houston rapper Mike Jones' "phone number" where fans could call it up and hear snippets from the album. We know y'all remember, "281-330-8004." Ha!
