Solange recently interviewed with and spoke up and admitted to having a pretty big breakdown while recording her new album. Her son even had to stay with Beyonce and her family for a while because of it! Below are excerpts from her interview with

There was definitely a little bit of a breakdown involved. I literally gave up my sanity for a while to do this record. To the point to where I started doing it in Santa Barbara and I had to relocate to L.A. because I was losing it. We literally were waking up in the morning and just making music all day and all night. We left the house maybe three times! It just started to wear on me in so many different ways. I started having these crazy panic attacks. I can say that I totally sacrificed so much mentally, emotionally and financially to get this record the way I wanted it to be. It’s more than an album to me. It’s a transitional time in my life. This is a dance record, but the lyrics can get pretty dark at times.

So where was her son, Julez when all of this was happening?
It brought me closer to my family, my dude and my son. My mum, sister and brother (in-law) all kept Julez for a week. Everybody cancelled work when I was going through it.

Honestly, if Solange's album doesn't do REALLY well, I fear for her mental stability on how she'll be able to take it.
