Solange Knowles - Solo Star
Written by Nicholas Jennings    PDF Print E-mail

Solange Knowles - Solo Star Sixteen-year-old Solange Knowles hopes to follow in the footsteps of her big sister, Beyoncé, who fronts female r&b hitmakers Destiny’s Child and recently starred as Foxxy Cleopatra in the Austin Powers movie Goldmember. Solange was even groomed for success, serving as a dancer for her sister’s group and then introducing them on last year’s TRL Tour. Now, she’s stepping out on her own. Apart from a duet with B2K on “Dance with You,” her album of uptempo, hip-hop tinged r&b is a strictly solo affair.
