We hope you took heed to that Solange warning from Thursday (February 28), because the spirit-ascending, art-transcending, hip-hop-lending When I Get Home album is finally here, and it’s snatching the souls of music connoisseurs internet-wide.
Solo orbits her ethereally abstract sound and artistic elevation to new heights for her fourth studio undertaking. Nineteen tracks, enriched with interludes and intermissions, cascade through a divergence of moods, tones, auras and timbres, sinking fans into a soulfully sonic parallel universe (and signifying that BlackPlanet relaunch even further). When I Get Home not only anchors her Houston roots, but pinches Solange’s adoration for quintessential hip-hop and R&B while doing so. From the cream of rap’s trap crop with Gucci Mane, to hip-hop oddities like Tyler, the Creator, to R&B’s long-time-no-see voices such as Cassie, to rap rookies like Playboi Carti, all the way over to music’s most phenomenal hit makers like Pharrell, Solo didn’t quite run solo for When I Get Home—and fans are floored.
