Yesterday, Solange Knowles celebrated the one year anniversary of her fourth studio album When I Get Home, by announcing a merch line in its honor.
The 33-year old singer unveiled the line on her BlackPlanet website. It features a limited-edition DVD release of the album, vinyl tote bags with exclusive prints and a satin six-foot-by-four-foot flag with lyrics, diagrams and circular objects on it. Prices range from $45 to $195.00.
In other Solange news, she was honored with the first-ever Lena Horne Prize for Artists Creating Social Impact at Town Hall in New York City on Friday. According to Billboard, during her acceptance speech, she revealed that When I Get Home was recorded during a critical point where she was dealing with the “fear of the unknown.”
“This album marked a colossal pivot moment in my life that I’m still in the thick of the lessons today,” she said. “Suddenly there came a great, great fear. Fear of the unknown, fear of trust, fear of love, fear of silence, fear of having to confront things and pain that I have buried too deep, deep inside.”
“It was easy for me to show up and be the unstoppable woman for everyone else, but terrifying for me to be that woman for myself,” she continued.
Featuring “Things I Imagined” and “Dreams,” When I Get Home was the follow-up to Solange’s number-one 2016 release A Seat At The Table. Black solidarity and unity are common themes on the album, and it also serves as an an ode to her Houston hometown’s chopped and screwed hip-hop scene, with production from Metro Boomin, Pharrell and more.
