It's hard enough to follow in the footsteps of a famous sibling. It's even harder when that sibling is Beyonce Knowles, who makes headlines these days without saying or singing a single word. Still, Solange Knowles has more than come into her own as a singer, songwriter and model.
Solange grew up in a time where she watched both of her parents quit their careers to support Beyonce's musical endeavors. So when Solange also expressed interest in music at an early age, she had a bit of a back door into temporary stints with Destiny's Child, before signing with her father's Music World Entertainment. She released her first album, "Solo Star," by age 16 to moderate commercial success (landing in the Top 50 of the Billboard 200).
It took another five years for Solange to make what the label considered a creative breakthrough. It came with the release of her second album, "Sol-Angel and the Hadley St. Dreams," which deviated from a pop-oriented sound to a Motown Sound from the 1960s and 70s. It peaked at No. 9 on the Billboard 200, and was followed up with the EP "True" in 2012.
Solange has said she intends to release her third studio album in 2014, on her own label Saint Records. When she's not singing, Solanage's ventures include an endorsement deal with Rimmel London and a line of hip-hop-oriented merchandise for young children.
