Solange is opening up about her physical health and spiritual "reckoning".

"I was quite literally fighting for my life...in and out of hospitals," she said, "with depleting health and broken spirits asking God to send me a sign I would not only survive, but that if he let me make it out alive, I would step into the light whatever that meant."

She wrote earlier this week, celebrating her 2019 When I Get Home album: "2 year anniversary of the project that literally changed my life."

The singer said: "He begin speaking to me. Half the time I didn't know where it was coming from. I only knew I had to open the door and honor it. I didn't see naann a thing I imagined. I didn't know who I was speaking to on 'I am a witness'. When I listen back, I hear a woman who had only an inkling of what the journey entailed, but didn't have a clue of why or what the journey would look like. [sic]"

She added: "One day, I'll tell y'all about the days I've had since I opened this door. The things I've uncovered. The life long healing I've begin. The great divine joy and love I've experienced. The stories of my past I've survived that I had stored all up in my body.... till it said.... no more. The re-learning. The reckoning. This album led me to all of it. [sic]"
