As she gears up for her highly-anticipated new album, Solange is taking over BlackPlanet.
The R&B songstress has set up a page on the African-American social networking service, revealing a series of new photos. The Western-themed images show Solange wearing cowboy boots, while others find her naked covered in body makeup. There are also shots of cowboys and horses, as well as a group of women in white cowboy hats and another swinging from a stripper pole.
Solange has been working on the follow-up to 2016’s critically-acclaimed A Seat at the Table. During an interview with The New York Times’ T Magazine last fall, the Grammy-winning singer opened up about the jazz-inspired project, which she recorded at various locations including New Orleans, Jamaica, and California’s Topanga Canyon.
“There is a lot of jazz at the core,” she told the magazine. “But with electronic and hip-hop drum and bass because I want it to bang and make your trunk rattle.”
While a release date is unknown, expect new music soon. Solange has been booked for several festivals this year including Coachella, Bonnaroo, Lovebox, Parklife, and more.
She also graces the latest cover of i-D Magazine. Dressed in a black turtleneck and wide-brimmed hat, she covers one eye with a black glove under the tagline “Becoming Solange.”
