Solange’s When I Get Home is one of the most brilliant and exciting avant-garde R&B albums to come out of the 2010s. Solange takes sounds from genres ranging from jazz to trap as well as features from top artists of today like Steve Lacy and Playboi Carti to compose a project that sounds like none other. She carefully constructs a feeling of luxury and space that remains grounded and unpretentious, cementing herself as one of the greatest and most versatile contemporary composers.

You can’t help but indulge in the fun of this poppy, break-beat-infused sound.
