Solange Knowles' new album When I Get Home dropped like a sack of wet sand last night. Beyonce's little sister surprised her fans by teasing her new album on Black Planet this week.
Solange's tweet, "Find me on Black Planet," left many of her older fans struggling to remember our logins.
Solange promised to deliver her new album at midnight. It was worth losing sleep to listen to 19 new tracks from the musician who gave us the masterful A Seat At the Table, which landed at #1 on the Billboard chart and earned Solo her first Grammy in 2016.
Unfortunately, WIGH failed to impress Solo's fans who were expecting a lot more than music as artful noise.
The set features rappers Playboi Carti, Earl Sweatshirt, Tyler the Creator, Gucci Mane, and more - but not much of a contribution from the singer herself.
"I'm on song 10 and she has yet to sing," wrote one disappointed fan. "...like I get she is into a "contextualized high-art" form of singing but give me lyrical content that isn’t a repetitive melody and singing that’s flows with emotion and less tracks that are overpowered by monotone adult swim vibes."
