Solange Knowles is following in the skilled footsteps of her father.
For, after spending the last few years gracing many a playlist with a consistent yet ever progressive sound, she has announced the birth of her very own record label- years after reports indicated she was next in line to inherit the ‘Music World’ throne.

Summer is hot and so is Solange! The stunning singer covers the June/July 2013 issue of Complex magazine.
Now mononymous, the soulful singer’s clout no longer hinges on the power in her last name. Her brand carries with it an effortless cool that she says is nothing to do with being “indie”. In fact she tells the magazine in her feature interview “the idea of convention versus non-convention or mainstream versus indie or any of those quote-unquote ‘conflicts’ has never crossed my mind.”
She does, however, wax honest about other conflicts elsewhere. Most notable is her description of what caused her to go independent in the first place.

Stars from many a field showed up and showed out tonight at the Costume Institute Gala 2013 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
The event, which is colloquially known as the ‘Met Gala’, saw a host of Hollywood talent descend into New York City in their finest fabrics for this year’s showcase – which this year boasted a “Punk” theme.
King B, Beyonce, led the pack — dazzling in a Givenchy gown that turned many a head. No signs of jet lag were present on the stage blazer who jetted in from London on a day off from her sold-out Mrs Carter Show World Tour.
Meanwhile, Madonna had folk talking too. Although we’re not sure it was for the same reasons.

Check out Solange and British stars Mutya Keisha Siobhan posing it up at the Los Angeles launch of Topshop recently.
Seemingly from different worlds, the eclectic talents now have a common denominator in producer/songwriter Dev Hynes (pictured).
A Brit himself, Hynes helmed much of Solange’s critically acclaimed EP ‘True’ and is presently clocking up studio time with the ladies (who many will remember as the original Sugababes).
We’re almost wetting ourselves at the prospect of MKS serving up something along the lines of ‘Losing You’ or ‘Some Things Never Seem To F**king Work’ when their album arrives in stores later this year.
In other “Origibabes” news, Keisha and co have also clocked in studio time with the legendary Diane Warren during their current American trip.
