HIT ALBUM: SOLANGE KNOWLES - A SEAT AT THE TABLE
TOP OF THE POPS
According to an article that recently appeared in Forbes, Solange Knowles, sister of Beyoncé, has scaled to the top of Billboard 200 for the first time with her latest album, A Seat At The Table. According to the magazine, the record hit “an unexpectedly-high 72,000 equivalent album units” of which 46,000 are actual sales and the rest streams. Unexpectedly released right after it was announced, A Seat At The Table is Solange’s third album featuring 21 tracks and follows the soul-style Sol-Angel And The Hadley St. Dreams, Solo Star and EPTrue.
Vogue U.S also dedicated space to the artist’s success album which features an interlude from her mother, Tina Knowles, called “Tina Taught Me” alongside several high-profile collaborators, including Lil Wayne, Kelela, Q-Tip, Dev Hynes, and Kelly Rowland. Vogue also cites Knowles’ Instagram posts which read, “I am overwhelmed with gratitude and excitement to share this body of work I have written, with you.” She also thanked portrait artist Lynette Yiadom-Boakye for being “a great source of inspiration and courage during my writing process. This one is for you.”
