Fans are here for whatever Solange is ready to deliver.

The beloved singer-songwriter sent her social media into delirium after sharing Instagram and Twitter posts announcing the launch of her new page on BlackPlanet. The A Seat At the Table lyricist is suspected to be using the platform for the rollout for her upcoming musical project.

The performance artist told her 3.7 million Instagram fans about her postings on the iconic social media platform and Black online community that was originally created in 1999. The page will include links, features images, GIFs, a looping futuristic video and cryptic texts like: “When your body is all you have you best take care,” and “How much of ourselves do we leave at home and how much do we carry with us forever?”

The singer also told her 4 million Twitter followers that they can “find me on black planet!! (sic)”

A slew of Solange fans immediately let her know that they are here for it.

The Houston-born Solange Piaget Knowles, 32, took a reprieve from social media back in October 2018. Her return has all the pomp and circumstance of a parade, as it was announced on Monday, Feb. 25, that she will grace the spring 2019 cover of i-D magazine. The announcement of her takeover of BlackPlanet on Tuesday culminated her week of crowning glory.

On her BlackPlanet page, Solange also released new images of herself outfitted in cowboy boots, along with a woman showing off her gravity-defying skills on a stripper pole. There’s also a link to her live tour dates, which begin in May. However, they are all in Europe.

Solange fans are losing it in anticipation over her upcoming projects.
