Solange’s “When I Get Home” an ode to black Texans


Singer-songwriter Solange Knowles released her fourth studio album, “When I Get Home,” and accompanying 33-minute video, “A Texas Film,” on March 1. From black cowboys to afrofuturistic visions of her hometown of Houston, Solange constructs her album in praise of black Southern life. She uses sounds from today’s mainstream music that are easy to sing and dance along to, while her style and lyricism create something completely new.

With the drop of her new album “A Seat at the Table,” her carefree artsy aesthetic (just look at her 2014 wedding photos) and the infamous elevator situation with Jay-Z, Solange has been on the rise for a while now. While she often is overshadowed by her larger-than-life sister Beyoncé, it’s clear that Solange has crafted a style and a sound that is all her own.
