Solange tweeted about her adoration for rapper Gucci Mane and his wife, Keyshia Ka'oir. The singer said that Gucci Mane's music "been apart of some of the best most freeing moments of my life." She also said that when she was really sick and lost hope, the rapper's autobiography kept her going.

A Twitter user mentioned the slight dip in Solange's voice on her song "Things I Imagined," and Solange explained that repetition has assisted her with reinforcing her truth. Hence the repetition on the song. Solange shared that by the 11th time she sang, "I saw things I imagined," she actually felt it.
repetition has helped me a lot w reinforcing my truth maybe the first 5 times i sang it i didn't fully believe myself maybe by the 8th time i actually really did see maybe the 11th i actually felt it then by the 14th - "taking on the light" https://t.co/QpqHPbtuPj

Solange alluded that she's really about that life. She alluded that when she sings, "you can get it" in "Way to the Show," she means bullets. Hence the gun clicks and shots in the production of the track.

Yo I'm convinced Metro's "hol up" is holy ! i had to sample it all over the albummmm ! threw them hoes in Almeda too! https://t.co/ALPfUk5a6b
Out of all of the tracks on When I Get Home, Solange is most proud of her production on "Almeda."
i am most proud of my production on Almeda !
The singer shared that when she first started recording When I Get Home, her body took a lot from her. She also said that she had to learn to accept a lot of things about herself.
my body took a lot from me when i started this record real scary times, ill tell y'all one day i had to learn to accept a lot of things about myself & this short time we got here i had some real ugly parts i need (& still need) to work thru but thru this albummmmm....
i tried to do the work that would simply bring me the most joy that would make me confront the things i am most afraid of to reinforce those things until i really believed them to realize time & space are big mysterious and I can only align on my own still got further to gooo https://t.co/QVjH28pgSD
