About Solange

Much more than just Beyonce’s younger sister, Solange Knowles is a fashion it-girl, a critically-acclaimed singer, and a queen of Instagram. As someone who steers clear of the typical Hollywood life—calling New Orleans home—Solange is a breath of fresh air in everything she creates. Her mix of cultures, sounds, and textiles make for a gorgeous Instagram feed, delighting over 2 million followers. Occasionally, she’ll even grace us on a red carpet, as Solange has come into her own now with the hit record A Seat at the Table, which she prodigiously wrote, arranged, and co-produced herself, detailing the rich (and rough-hewn) fabric of black life in America today.

Solange's best work on social
