When I Get Home
Updated: May 22, 2019
Solange's follow-up to 2016's "A Seat At The Table," sees the songstress experimenting with structure and format, producing a free-form feel to the project. Where A Seat At The Table (ASATT) provides angelic melodies with concepts and lyrics that smoothly sink into you, "When I Get Home" throws all of that out the window, in favor of an experience where you just have to be along for the ride. There's still the same soulful "airiness" to the Sol Angel's voice, but this is freestyle, this is jazz. For newer Solange fans this may not be their cup of tea, especially if ASATT was your first sitting. But after your second or third cup, you'll find yourself singing and bouncing along. My favs from this project are "Almeda" featuring a surprise verse from Playboi Carti (all of my diamonds they lumps), "Stay Flo", and "Binz," which has a slight Caribbean influence to it. Other contributors include The Dream, Sampha, and Gucci Mane on "My Skin My Logo". When I Get Home isn't the commercially or cultural impacting album that ASATT was, but it's still a cool project to vibe out to on a lazy afternoon. Give it a listen below, it's a mood.
