Solange Knowles newest album "When I get Home" is a critical darling. The album has been praised across the board, and has inspired new art in its own right.

One of Solange's fans posted a series of photos Tuesday of a crop top she crocheted, featuring Solange's face from the cover of the album.

Akua Darkwa, a 19-year-old student at the University of Illinois shared her hand crafted clothing.

The top took Darkwa 12 hours over four days to make.

In an interview with Page Six Style, Darkwa described her process,

"The process of crocheting is tedious and a bit stressful at times, but finally getting to the end is so rewarding that I don't think it's something I'm ever gonna stop doing."

She's been crocheting since she was a child, though she didn't start making clothing until high school.

And it would seem people agree that this shirt is fire!






Darkwa's passion did not go unnoticed. In addition to all the people on Twitter asking her to make them one, Solange herself retweeted the tweet.

"It feels amazing knowing Solange saw it!"

Darkwa said.

"And now there's thousands of people in the world who know and love my work. It feels great."





Solange's new album has proven to be a powerhouse. Some reviews have called it the best album of the year so far, with Metacritic's aggregate scoring it 89 out of 100.

The album has been praised for its spacey sound, with synths and electronic sounds reinforcing the cosmic ambience. Knowles has said she was very focused on what she had to "feel" for an album about going home.

It's proven very popular. Combined with Darkwa's skill and hard work at her crochet, how could you not want a Solange top?





Darkwa plans to wait to take orders. She is still in classes and wouldn't have the time to make these for everyone who wants one.

"I do have plans to start selling! I'm planning on doing orders in mid-to-late summer,"

Darkwa confirmed.



I guess the last question is, think she can do other artists?

I have a few wealthy friends and I've seen a thing or two that has made my eyes pop out of my head. Let's just say that the priorities of a wealthy person and a dude who has never broken six figures are entirely different. But that doesn't compare to working for the fabulously rich. A friend of mine was a nanny for a super rich family for several years and described the lavish trips she took with them (and how picky and out of touch they were, too).

People told us their own stories after Redditor NeighborhoodTrolley asked the online community,

"People who cater to the super rich: What things have you seen?"

Oh the matters of the heart are just never going to be easy. Love seems to be a never ending mess. I've dated a lot and can attest that the percentage of bad to good is 70/30. And that may be generous math.

I've heard about people fighting on dates, setting fire to the restaurant, discovering hidden identities and dramas I thought only ever occurred on daytime television.

I use to believe the biggest fear about dating was that the other person may turn out to be a serial killer, but they at least tend to show you a respectable time before they strike.

Oof. Let's see who has been left scarred by the hunt.

Redditor u/givemeyourfreefood wanted everyone to share the stories that almost made them re-think searching for love, by asking:

What's the worst date you ever had?
