I promised myself that when I started a new blog, it wouldn't become a Solange and Tracee Ellis Ross shrine, but hey, if there's new to share, and I'm interested in said news, and it's related to either of them, well - I HAVE to share it! I am literally squealing with excitement as I type this because Solange just announced that her new album, A Seat at the Table, will be out this Friday, September 30th, and it will feature some pretty amazing guest stars.
This will be her first full-length LP since 2008, so this is a big deal for a Solange lover like me, ok? She has been teasing us with beautiful visuals and short clips via her social media accounts, so I knew something big was about to take place.
The new album will feature appearances by Tweet, The Dream, Dev Hynes, Sampha, Kelly Rowland, BJ The Chicago Kid, Kelela, and more. This album was years in the making, and I can say with confidence that it will be her best work to date. I'm one of those fans who can appreciate when an artist takes a significant amount of time to release another project, in order to live - to have something to write about.
Now 30 and married, it's been dope to see her evolution as an artist, and I'm looking forward to hearing just how much she's grown through her new music. You can peep the digital booklet for her new album on her website,
