Black History Month was a dub, and we don’t have to remind you why. Thankfully at the stroke of midnight, Solange rode in with her cowboy hat and saved the day with her surprise new album When I Get Home, and Twitter is thankful.
Solange already had Twitter buzzing with talks of a new album when she came out of nowhere with a takeover of the Urban One Inc. social media platform BlackPlanet. She confirmed the speculations when she announced that her new LP When I Get Home was indeed coming at midnight.
Twitter users were immediately beside themselves and declared that Black History Month has been extended with the impending arrival of the 19-track opus. Today the compliments are pouring in as fans are saying the follow up to A Seat At The Table an instant classic as they share lyrics accompanied with the perfect gif to accurately describe how the album is making them feel.
The album features a dynamic range of vocal contributions from The-Dream, Devin The Dude, Tyler the Creator, Cassie, Sampha, Gucci Mane and Playboi Carti. So while you are jamming out to Solange’s latest musical gift to the world, get into the reactions to the new project in the gallery below and let us know what is your favorite track off the album in the comment section below.

Heavy "Journey Through The Secret Life of Plants" influence on #WhenIGetHome. Off first listen, I like it a lot more than "A Seat At The Table." Shit is hard.— Phonte (@phontigallo) March 1, 2019
Literally about to leave a club so I can listen to #WhenIGetHome— LookAtDustin (@LookAtDustin) March 1, 2019
Solange so powerful that she extended black history month another day. This day shall henceforth and only be recognized as February 29th. NO DISCUSSION #WhenIGetHome— put a finger down if u hate it here (@blankscreams) March 1, 2019
The poem in Exit Scott (Interlude) is by Pat Parker, and it’s called Sunshine. I just want to thank Solange for putting me on to her. Clearly, I must have been sleeping under a fucking rock my entire life. #WhenIGetHome pic.twitter.com/tBDjaFXGA5— Beyoncé´s Third eye (@Nxl0v) March 1, 2019
If Beyoncé makes twerking, turn up music, then Solange makes music for a night in with edibles, weed, sage & incense. They’re truly like Yin & Yang. Sun & moon. I have no choice but to stan both😩❤️.#WhenIGetHome pic.twitter.com/Arqo4bSKl0— Will👁🅰️Ⓜ️ (@atb__william) March 1, 2019
Spoiler Alert: Solange is not for everybody! So this era we getting rid of all the fake fans who loved her when she made a pro black album. #WhenIGetHome is for the real fans who been riding and understand her artistry/growth and stick with her no matter what she does sonically. pic.twitter.com/bO0SkiNXT7— ✍🏾🗣 (@writtenbytruth) March 1, 2019
Solange hitting us with samples from “On Status” by Dr. Vivian Ayers Allen, the mother of Debbie Allen and Phylicia Rashad, in S McGregor. I see you Solange; we here. #WhenIGetHome pic.twitter.com/oLNQ979krB— Beyoncé´s Third eye (@Nxl0v) March 1, 2019
