It’s time to dust off your old BlackPlanet account, because Solange Knowles is about to make the website cool again.
Knowles made a profile on the website we all frequented back when jersey dresses were still a thing. She then announced the new profile on Twitter:
find me on black planet !! ???????? https://t.co/HUFJxjhtuY

Her page sports a black background with silent videos of Solange, phrases and other expertly curated artsy imagery. The move is part of the promotion strategy for her new album, reports Time Magazine.
On the site, the “Losing You” singer can be seen pole dancing and donning cowgirl themed looks, a clear homage to Houston, Texas, her hometown.
“I made the pilgrimage back to the pagoda of third ward houston to answer this,” reads one of the site's quotes.

Solange also posted dates for her upcoming concert.
As Blavity previously reported, Solo promised her fans she would release a follow-up to A Seat At The Table in Fall 2018, but that didn’t happen.
It looks like the artist is finally ready to share new songs, and the world waits with bated breath.
Her social media shenanigans sent Twitter into a tizzy:
So #Solange purchased Black Planet? #BlackTwitter really helped push this platform to what it is today. I wonder if it's possible for us to breath life into Black Planet and help catapult it? Let me go see if I remember my goofy login name lol

Solange using Black Planet to market her new material/projects is exactly the type of content and marketing and branding and dope shit that I aspire to do!
Cause it's real AF.
