On November 12, Solange will breath new life into the R&B genre with her Saint Heron compilation album. The first release off her indie label Saint Records brings together a group of artists handpicked by Solange including Cassie, Jhene Aiko, Sampha and Petite Noir.
“With Saint Heron I really wanted to celebrate and continue to cultivate the community for genre-defying R&B artists. I’ve personally connected with all of these extremely talented artists, and really excited for us to come together through the compilation as a new movement for music,” she says of her new project.
Before the project arrives in stores, check out the first single below and flip the page for more of the lesser known artists.
