Solange Knowles kicked off the first day of Women’s History Month with a 19 track album that boasts powerful vocals and surprise features! See the best reactions from listeners.
Solange Knowles, 32, dropped her fourth full-length album, When I Get Home, on the cusp between Black History Month and Women’s History Month (March 1). Fans think the timing couldn’t have been more perfect. “Solange literally saved Black History Month on the very LAST day and brought in Women’s History Month….🗣AT THE SAME DAMN TIME!🔥,” one fan tweeted, while another listener wrote, “@solangeknowles really showed up and showed out for the ending of black history month and the beginning of women’s history month huh.” A third fan echoed those thoughts, tweeting, “Solange dropping this album at the end of Black History Month and at the start of Women’s History Month. An intersectional visionary.” The new record, Solange’s first in over two years, packs 19 tracks with features from Gucci Mane, Tyler the Creator, Playboi Carti, Earl Sweatshirt, Devin The Dude, Cassie and more — listen to the album below!
Solange’s vocals are so dreamy, her lyrics so hard-hitting, listeners keep retweeting transcendence memes! “This Solange album might be one of the few times I get to the deepest parts of my psyche. Her voice is like a pillow of continuous reassurance & the production is like the supporting bed frame 😭,” one fan wrote, while others also filled Twitter’s timeline with similarly poetic critiques. And we know Solange appreciates the love, which she 100 percent deserves! “Y’all! I’m filled w so much joy right now!!! Wow! I can’t thank y’all enough for this moment and for all the feelings i feel in my body! I’m bringing home w me everywhere I go yalll and I ain’t running from shit no more. Your love lifts me up so high. Thank you,” the singer tweeted on Feb. 28, hours before releasing her new record.
Clearly, Solange didn’t break a sweat over dropping her new music on the same day the Jonas Brothers band made its comeback. All 19 songs of Solange’s demanded everyone’s attention, and even Beyoncé shined a spotlight on her little sister’s new music. Bey shared two clips teasing a future music video from the album to her Instagram feed!
