Edges were snatched when Solange took to social media to announce her third solo album A Seat At The Table, and since she’s long had the support of the people, it’s no surprise Solo’s latest LP has landed at the number one spot on the Billboard 200.
According to Billboard A Seat At The Table moved 76,000 units the week ending Oct. 6, beating out Bon Iver’s 22 A Million. Of Solange’s total units, 46,000 were traditional album sales making the project her first number one. In 2008, the “Don’t Touch My Hair” singer broke the top 10 with her sophomore effort Sol Angel and The Hadley St. Dreams.
Solange’s soulful LP tackles issues of racism, self-worth, self-care, the politics of hair and everything in between. With empowering and colorful commentary from both her parents as well as Master P, A Seat At The Table has proven to be a breath of fresh air for the music industry.
Congrats to Solange!
