The Business of Solange Knowles
Solange released her debut solo album aptly titled Solo Star in 2003 at the tender age of 14. Several years later, after a stint away from the limelight and with a much more mature sound, Bey’s little sis released her sophomore LP Sol-Angel and the Hadley St.Dreams in 2008. Holding on to the Motown aesthetic, the album offers soulful coming-of-age tales of a young woman/lover in a retro vibe. Aside from her own songs, she been a songwriter for sassy hits like Beyoncé’s “Upgrade U,” “Get Me Bodied” and “Why Don’t You Love.”
Nowadays, she’s recording her forthcoming studio album, which includes recently released track “Losing You,” while frequently manning the 1’s and 2’s for some of the hottest parties all over the world.
