But with electronic and hip-hop drum and ass because I want it to bang and make your trunk rattle.” Solange has not released any new music for two years now, she claims she is in no hurry. She wants her music to tell a story and says it will be conveyed flawlessly.

I don’t know any artist that doesn’t feel that before they hit the send button.” Her 2016 album, A Seat At The Table, created a lot of conversation about black womanhood. this influenced Solange desire to change how black women see themselves.
This all goes back to the black women Solange grew up with. During her interview, she says, “I grew up in a house with four black women. My mother [Tina Knowles Lawson], my sister [Beyoncé], Kelly Rowland and Angie Beyince [Her cousin]. That’s where I felt safest. It’s what feels like home. It’s what feels inspiring.”
