These are black-owned things. Black faith still can’t be washed away, not even in that Florida Water
I know I say Black History is forever and all, but I never could’ve guessed that this particular Black History Month would end like this.
Not like this at all…
It was announced on February 28th that Solange Knowles would be releasing a new album, When I Get Home, at midnight the next day. Upon hearing the news, I was absolutely floored. A Seat at the Table is one of my favorite albums of the decade, so I knew Solange would further push the envelope with this follow up.
After a few listens, this is most definitely a worthy successor to her 2016 breakout album.
I can’t provide as much of an in depth analysis of When I Get Home as I want to just yet. I may not even do so on the blog (please feel free to ask me about it though). It was simply necessary to celebrate the spontaneity of the release, to revel in Solange’s command of artistry. From the guest features to the production, this album is an early frontrunner for 2019 Album of the Year.
A Spotify link is provided below. At 19 Tracks and 39 minutes, listening to When I Get Home would a beautiful way to spend a lunch break or a commute home.
