Solange has always been so private — only giving us glimpse of her life through her thought-provoking artistry. But now the singer is opening up more than she ever has before, revealing that during a time where she was creating that soul-enhancing art she wondered if she’d even survive.
It’s been two years since Solo released her album, When I Get Home. The highly acclaimed project was a hit with critics and fans alike, but the process of making the 19-track album changed Solange’s life forever.
While celebrating the two year anniversary of the project, the 34-year-old songstress revealed that it was during the making of the album she “was quite literally fighting for my life…in and out of hospitals with depleting health and broken spirits.” Solange went on to share that she asked “God to send me a sign I would not only survive, but that if he let me make it out alive, I would step into the light whatever that meant.” That light ended up being, When I Get Home…
It was late in 2017 that Solange revealed she was diagnosed with Autonomic Disorder, but now she’s sharing that she’s on a journey of “life long healing.”
Solange has continued to celebrate life and When I Get Home with a film version of the album and fan letters featured on Black Planet.
Sis is living, thriving, and doing much more than just surviving. We stan!
