Speaking to T about her new music, Solange said there is "a lot of jazz at the core" of the songs "But with electronic and hip-hop drum and bass because I want it to bang and make your trunk rattle.” A traditional release seems unlikely with the album “likely arrive into the world fully formed at some mysterious and unexpected moment.” Solange added that the record "will be warm, fluid, and more sensual" than A Seat At The Table.

Earlier this year Solange collaborated with IKEA and joined sister Beyoncé on stage at Coachella.
