Contributed by Anaya Ray

Singer and actress, Solange, is hitting the music scene again with a new album set to release by the end of this year.

After her praise worthy 2016 album, A Seat At The Table, the singer is back with a bigger and better album for all her fans. This album will touch upon more than just R&B, but everything from jazz to even electronic.

In an interview with the New York Times Style, Solange describes the new aspects of the not yet titled album compared to her 2016 album.

“There is a lot of jazz at the core,” Solange said of the songs.

“But with electronic and hip-hop drum and bass because I want it to bang and make your trunk rattle.”
