R&B singer Solange is back on her music grind. After days of teasing, the veteran crooner has come through in a big way with her surprise When I Get Home album.
Last night, Solange announced the unexpected audio project would drop at midnight.

Leading up to the project’s release, Solange has kept her social media presence on full display and active with a website takeover.
The release was preceded by a takeover of the early-aughts social networking site BlackPlanet.com, where the 32-year-old artist shared photographs and snippets of video depicting contrasting facets of Southern black life, presented in her signature, simultaneously avant-garde and down-home demeanor; chromed-out cowboy boots paired with bustiers, cornrowed black beauties, vintage Cadillacs, perfectly laid and purposely wack wigs, strippers busting splits on the pole, cowboys waiting on the rails of the bullpen.
