Solange Drops New Album 'When I Get Home'
The secret’s out. Solange caps off Black History Month with the long-awaited follow-up to A Seat at the Table.
After dropping cryptic teasers throughout the week, the R&B songstress delivers her fourth album When I Get Home. Inspired by her Houston roots, the 19 tracks include 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.

The project, described as more “warm, fluid, and sensual” than 2016’s A Seat at the Table, was recorded at various locations including New Orleans, Jamaica, and California’s Topanga Canyon. “The album is an exploration of origin,” reads a press release. “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.”
To celebrate the release, Solange has also announced that a special event will take place across Houston’s Third Ward on March 3. More details can be found on her website.
