Solange Inks Deal With EMI

Published: Monday 27th Aug 2007 by Sam
After establishing herself as a successful song-writer, Solange Knowles has signed a worldwide co-publishing deal with EMI Records. Having already co-penned hits for her sister Beyonce (‘Get Me Bodied’, ‘Upgrade U’ etc), the deal will see Solange earn a nice percentage of rights to any song she (co)writes. She will also receive more writing opportunties for other artists. The youngest of the Knowles clan is currently in the studio recording her sophomore album ‘Solange & The Hadley Street Dreams’. {Source}
Though Solange has mainly written in-house for Music World artists i.e. Beyonce, Kelly Rowland etc, this is definitely a good look for her. Hate on them all you want, but you can’t deny the Knowles’ work ethic – everyone’s doing their thing. I know Matthew ain’t standing for no freeloading LeToya Jackson’s in his family lol.

Your thoughts?

    This is a great move for her. Her and Keri Hilson are my fave songwriters. I also love their songs and cant wait for Solange’s new album!

    I agree! Solange is very underrated. I saw her perform at the Essence Festival and she was very good live. Good luck to her.

    Not a fan but at least she can take advantage of her family connections. I mean come on have you seen her in that Bring It On Direct to DVD movie?
