i have to say i was a bit late to the game with SOLANGE.
and im not gonna lie, her obvious association with her famous sister probably influenced my overlooking her career in general. but recently i came across her excellent recent two albums WHEN I GET HOME (COLUMBIA, 2019) and A SEAT AT THE TABLE (COLUMBIA, 2016) which have me convinced that she is this generation's FUNK / NEO-SOUL by way of HIP HOP interpretation of the likes of ERYKAH BADU, NINA SIMONE, JILL SCOTT and MARY J BLIGE.
her music feels fresh, adventurous and progressive while maintaining a sense of rootedness in the best threads of traditional R&B. im definitely on the lookout now for what she does moving forward.
