Solange’s New Album Is Finally Here.

After bringing BlackPlanet back, Solange broke the internet at midnight with her long-awaited new album. Titled When I Get Home, the album—which was reportedly recorded in multiple places including New Orleans and Jamaica—is an “exploration of origin” and an ode to her Houston roots.

“There is a lot of jazz at the core,” Solange said of the album to T Magazine last year. “But with electronic and hip-hop drum and bass because I want it to bang and make your trunk rattle.”

The followup to the groundbreaking A Seat at the Table, When I Get Home features contributions from Earl Sweatshirt, Tyler the Creator, Gucci Mane, Playboi Carti, Dev Hynes, Pharrell, Sampha, and more.

You can stream the new album on Spotify and Apple Music.

Jay losing his father at four years old when his father left him. Dame losing his mom at 14 years old and having to put himself through private school. So, there were a lot of hardships and things we went through that actually gave us strength.”
