Solange Knowles

Price indication: On request

Solange Piaget Knowles (born June 24, 1986), who performs under the mononym Solange, is an
American singer-songwriter, actress, model, dancer, businesswoman, and DJ. Knowles was born and
raised in Houston, Texas along with her older sister singer Beyoncé. Showing an interest in music
recording at an early age, she eventually broke into the music scene at 16. She has released two
studio albums: Solo Star in 2003 and her most successful album to date, Sol-Angel and the Hadley St.
Dreams in 2008, which peaked at number nine in the US Billboard 200 chart. Knowles is currently
recording her third studio album for an early 2013 release. A new video and single for “Losing You”
were released on October 2, 2012. Knowles worked with Dev Hynes and Pharrell Williams on this
album. Solange is releasing her first extended play entitled True which debuts on November 27, 2012
under Terrible Records. This marks for preparation of her third studio album.
Knowles’ work has earned her several achievements, including working with Destiny’s Child, BET
Awards and Soul Train Music Award nominations and three consecutive singles notched at the
number one spot on the US Billboard Hot Dance Club Play. In October 2012, Solange, among other
celebrities such as Idris Elba, Nick Cannon, and Pauly D were nominated for Celebrity DJ Of The Year
Award from The Golden Spin Awards. The winner has not yet been announced. Knowles appeared on
the big screen in Johnson Family Vacation. She provided a song for the soundtrack, though it was not
used in the film. She also appeared in the straight-to-video Bring It On: All or Nothing, which co-starred
Hayden Panettiere, of the TV series Heroes. In January 2012, Knowles signed a modeling contract
with Next Model Management. She has been honored by the American Society of Culture Critics for
her contributions to music and fashion. Knowles has been compared to her sister by the media, but
she dismisses the notion, saying they are artistically different.
Knowles was born in Houston, Texas, to Mathew Knowles and Tina Knowles. Solange is the second
child of Mathew and Tina, and the younger sister of Beyoncé. Her father is African American and her
mother is Creole (of African and Native American, descent). Her maternal grandparents are Lumis
Beyincé and Agnéz Deréon, (a seamstress). She is also a descendant of Acadian leader Joseph
Broussard. As a child, Knowles studied dance and theater. At the age of five, she made her singing
debut at an amusement park. She began writing songs at the age of nine. At 13, she decided to
pursue recording, but her parents initially advised her to wait. At the age of 15 Knowles replaced a
departed dancer and performed with her sister’s group Destiny’s Child on tour. During the group’s
opening stint for American pop singer Christina Aguilera’s tour, Knowles temporarily replaced
Destiny’s Child member Kelly Rowland after Kelly broke her toes backstage during a costume change.
When Knowles was 16, her father, who was then also her manager, signed her to his recording
company, Music World Entertainment.
Managed by her father Mathew, Knowles’ first foray into the music business was in 2001 as the lead
singer, backed with Destiny’s Child, on the title theme song for the animated television series The
Proud Family. She also was a featured performer on “Hey Goldmember” for the soundtrack to the
2002 film Austin Powers in Goldmember, as well as a backup singer on the track “Little Drummer Boy”
on her sister’s group’s 2001 holiday album 8 Days of Christmas. In 2002, she was featured on Lil
Romeo’s second studio album Game Time, singing portions of Luther Vandross-penned “So Amazing”
on the single “True Love”, and on Rowland’s debut solo album Simply Deep, for which she also wrote
the title track and “Alone”. In 2001 she also appeared as Lil’ Bow Wow’s date in the music video for his
single “Puppy Love”. She also made an appearance on the Master of Disguise soundtrack and made
cameos in Play’s video for M.A.S.T.E.R. (Part II) featuring Lil’ Fizz. In 2002, she lent her voice for the
character Chanel, the cousin of the protagonist Penny Proud, in the episode “Behind Family Lines” to
the animated television series The Proud Family. In June 2003, Mathew Knowles excitedly announced
that he was considering adding Solange to Destiny’s Child when the group reunited in 2004, thus
turning them into a quartet for the first time since short-lived member Farrah Franklin left in 2000.
Mathew Knowles said he was testing the reactions, and, judging by what he had heard, “it seems like
a good idea”.Later in August, however, Beyoncé said it was only a rumor and Destiny’s Child would remain a trio. Rowland added, “She’s a Solo Star,” name-dropping Knowles’ debut album. At the age
of 14, Solange Knowles started working on her debut album Solo Star, which involved American
producers such as Jermaine Dupri, The Neptunes, Linda Perry and Timbaland among others. The
album is primarily uptempo R&B, although Knowles said there are pop, rock, reggae and hip hop
influences. Knowles co-wrote and co-produced some of the 15 tracks in the album, including its lead
single, “Feelin’ You (Part II)”. The song failed to enter the Billboard Hot 100, but reached number three
on both the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles Sales and Hot Dance Singles Sales chart. Solo Star was
released on January 21, 2003 in the United States, where it debuted at number 49 on the Billboard
200 and reached number 23 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. Solo Star had a mixed critical
reception: William Ruhlmann of Allmusic called it a “state-of-the-art contemporary R&B album”, but
deemed Knowles “lost somewhere in the mix”.As of mid-2008, the album had sold 112,000 copies
domestically according to Nielsen Soundscan.
In 2004, she guest starred in the episode “The Catch” to the sitcom One on One. Knowles appeared
as a nubile teenager in the 2004 comedy film Johnson Family Vacation, starring alongside American
actors Cedric the Entertainer, Vanessa Williams and Bow Wow. She provided a song for its
soundtrack—”Freedom”, a collaboration with the Houston-based funk-jazz band Drop Trio. Although
the reviews were generally negative, Knowles earned praise from Variety magazine: “Solange
Knowles is nearly as dazzling as big sister Beyoncé and does little more than smile winningly in her
first bigscreen outing.” In 2006, she starred as a cheerleading captain in the film Bring It On: All or
Nothing, the third installment of the Bring it On series, alongside American actress and singer Hayden
Panettiere. What little critical reaction the low-budget, direct-to-DVD movie got was negative, and
Knowles was described as an “affordable young starlet”. Knowles uses her full name for her acting,

rather than just the first name she uses when singing; for Bring It On: All or Nothing, she was billed as
Solange Knowles-Smith, reflecting her married state at the time. After the release of her debut album,
Knowles started acting in films followed by a career break. When she was married, her family moved
to Idaho, and, while staying there, resumed writing songs including the singles “Get Me Bodied” and
“Upgrade U” off her sister’s second solo album, B’Day. Knowles earned the R&B and Hip-Hop Song
accolade for “Get Me Bodied” at the 2008 ASCAP Awards. She had also written songs for Destiny’s
Child, and members Rowland and Michelle Williams. In 2004, while pregnant with son Daniel, she
made a cameo appearance in Destiny’s Child’s music video for “Soldier”.
After the divorce, Knowles returned to Houston to begin working on her second album. Knowles
renewed her management, signing a record deal with Geffen and a publishing deal with EMI. Knowles
finished working on her second studio album in 2008 and titled the project Sol-Angel and the Hadley
St. Dreams. It includes production by Cee-Lo Green, Soulshock & Karlin and Mark Ronson as well as
an appearance by Bilal. A collection of 1960s- and 1970s-influenced songs, it is seen as a departure
from her pop-oriented debut, with what Billboard magazine called “more of a modern twist on hip-hop
and R&B flecked with tinges of blues and jazz”. The album was released on August 26, 2008 in the
United States. By December 2008, the album had sold over 114,000 copies according to Nielsen
Soundscan. The album was positively received by critics, some of whom considered it far better than
her debut. The album’s lead single, “I Decided”, was released in April 2008, and reached the top of the
Billboard Hot Dance Club Play; Rolling Stone magazine labelled it her breakthrough single. In support
of the album, Knowles began the Solange Presents Sol-Angel and the Hadley St. Dreams Tour in
Britain in November 2008. Knowles announced, via her blog, that she will be
releasing a series of mixtapes, to coincide with the album. The first mixtape, “I Can’t Get Clearance…”,
includes the leaked track “Fuck the Industry (Signed Sincerely)”. On this record, Knowles expresses
her views on the current state of the music industry. The lyrics to the song name check some major
artists such as Mary J. Blige, Ashanti, Keyshia Cole, and Beyoncé, although she made a point of
stating that it does not have “a negative light to any of [them]“. The mixtape was never released, but
Solange released “Fuck the Industry (Signed Sincerely)” as a single in 2010.In an interview with MTV in 2009, Knowles revealed that she was determining the type of sound for the
follow-up to Sol-Angel and the Hadley St. Dreams. Knowles also parted ways with the InterscopeGeffen-A&M record label group. She will now release her third studio album independently. Early in
2010, Knowles traveled to Australia to work with Australian rock band, Midnight Juggernauts on her
third studio album Knowles plans to release the album in summer as revealed on her official Twitter
account in 2009 She also revealed on her Twitter account that she rented a house in Santa Barbara,
California to get into a certain state of mind while writing and making music. On 7 May 2010, Knowles
made a guest appearance on the popular children show, Yo Gabba Gabba! for a “Mothers Day
Special” where she performed an original song called, “Momma Loves Baby”. In an interview with Vibe
on 7 July 2010, Knowles said she suffered “a little bit of a breakdown” while recording her new album:
“I literally gave up my sanity for a while to do this record. [...] We literally were waking up in the
morning and just making music all day and all night. [...] It just started to wear on me in so many
different ways. I started having these crazy panic attacks.” Knowles explained how she made
sacrifices “mentally, emotionally and financially”, and continued, “It’s more than an album to me. It’s a
transitional time in my life.” Regarding the musical direction of the album, she said the inspiration
came from New Wave music and stated, “This is a dance record, but the lyrics can get pretty dark at
times.” The singer has also worked on songs with Chromeo and long-time collaborator Pharrell.
In September 2012, Solange released a teaser video for, “Losing You”, the upcoming single from her
third album. This release marks Solange’s first release as a signee of the independent label Terrible
Records. The video was shot in Cape Town, South Africa around early September 2012. Knowles
revealed in an interview that her mother Tina Knowles had paid for Solange and her friends to fly out
and record the video, as her birthday gift. On October 24, 2012, Knowles held a listening party in New
York City for her EP True, set to be released for digital download on iTunes November 27, 2012. The
CD and vinyl has been made available January 8, 2013. Following the EP’s release, Solange
appeared on the cover of The FADER magazine’s 84th issue.
