Just a day after the release of her fourth studio album, When I Get Home, Solange Knowles releases an “interdisciplinary performance art film” to accompany the project.

Directed and edited by Solange with co-contributors Alan Ferguson (her husband), Terence Nance, Jacolby Satterwhite, and Ray Tintori; Autumn Knight and Robert Pruitt, the 33-minute film is a tribute to Solange’s hometown of Third Ward Houston.

Starting the visual with “Things I Imagined,” Solange is seen dancing in a shimmery dress – swaying before us before switching to her cowgirl outfit for “Down With The Clique.”

“I couldn’t be more proud,” Knowles stated in an Instagram announcement of the film’s release.

The film features home footage of Knowles being her true self, dancing the night away.

The Rise of R&B Music in Africa miixtapechiick Afrobeats, Amapiano, Gengetone


The world’s music industry has always been inspired by Africa, the continent of rich cultural heritage. In the African music scene, R&B is experiencing a significant comeback, despite the historical dominance of Afrobeats, Amapiano, Gengetone, and other genres. This is an exciting development for the continent.

Africa’s R&B scene is proof of African musicians’ uniqueness, versatility, and creativity. R&B has always been associated with romantic themes and soulful songs, but African musicians are giving the genre a distinctive new direction by incorporating elements of their own cultures and musical tastes.

Africa has a never-ending love for good R&B; South Africa, Nigeria, Kenya, Ghana, Zambia, and Uganda have the highest R&B listenership on Spotify. Collaborations between international superstars and African musicians in the R&B genre are becoming more frequent than they were a decade ago, mostly due to this tremendous rise.

From the mesmerizing strains of “Big FU” by David Guetta, featuring Nigeria’s finest Ayra Starr, to the captivating melodies of “Sensational” by Chris Brown, Davido, and Lojay, and Travis Scott jumping on Tyla‘s “Water,” one of Africa’s breakout songs of 2023. Africa’s stars are shining bright on the world stage.

And now, African singers are also connecting with one another to release global hits all on their own.

Soulful vocals combined with modern production techniques, Afrobeat loops, and traditional African rhythms are being skillfully blended by musicians all throughout the globe. This blend produces a sound that not only resonates with listeners but also bridges the gap between the past and the present.

In Africa, R&B is growing in popularity more than ever. We see that the power of music transcends all borders, whether by location or generation, as this global journey spreads like wildfire.
