Yesterday (Sept.27th), Solange announced that her new album A Seat At The Table will drop digitally this Friday. The album is a 20-track project that she has been working on since 2013. Written in its entirety by her, the album also features Kelly Rowland, Lil Wayne, The Dream, Sampha and Q-Tip.
According to the press release, the album is “a project on identity, empowerment, independence, grief and healing.” Given how outspoken Solange has been on the racial inequality in our country and how unapologetically black she is, we are almost certain her music will speak to that.
She hinted at the project last week on her Instagram page where she posted a picture with a caption that read, “86 of you will receive a seat at the table in the mail…..first come….first served….” That post lead fans to her website in which the first 86 people to enter their information received a book of poetry and photography.
