Two PLUM’s Up for Solange!
Talk about a beautiful surprise! After issuing a quick teaser to fans last week, Solange unveils her third debut album; a creative masterpiece she began working four years ago.
First Beyonce reiterate that we get in formation, ‘turn our trials into triumphs’ and make ‘Lemonade’ . Now, Solange asks that we take a ‘Seat At The Table’ as she takes us on her journey of self exploration and black pride. The album is executive produced by Solange and musician extraordinare Raphael Sadique [who is also the voice on the cover song behind Marvel’s Luke Cage show] .
This album is by far her best project to date. You can feel the growth in Solange as an artist, woman, mother, and wife. Solange offers up more falsettos and ‘tweet’ inspired vocals that flows effortlessly on tracks ‘Cranes In The Sky’, ‘Mad’ ‘Where Do We Go’, ‘F.U.B.U’ , and ‘Junie’. The album is refreshingly soothing from start to finish, and a must listen .
Means a lot to me. It wasnt always easy. Often wanted to give up & hand the pen elsewhere, but knew I had to use my voice to tell this story https://t.co/4gAlLwrNbR

In another interlude, Master P reveals the story behind his successful record label ‘No Limit’ ; earning him one of a spot on the Forbes Richest men list. Lil Wayne, Tweet, Kelela, Kelly Rowland, Nicholas Cage also make vocal appearances on the album.
