It’s hard to tell if Solange Knowles is more famous for being the younger sister of Beyoncé or for attacking Jay-Z in an elevator. Either way, she seems an odd choice to close out a festival dedicated to eschewing the mainstream. That’s not to say, however, that the 30-year-old singer/model/actress/dancer is lacking in talent. With several stints in Destiny’s Child and co-writing credits for Beyonce, Kelly Rowland, and Michelle Williams, Solange released her first studio album in 2002 when she was just 14. Fast-forward to 2016 and Solange has dropped her third studio album and first number one record in the United States, A Seat at the Table. Aside from her Grammy-winning music career, Solange enjoys painting and also has been recognized for her fashion featuring her glamorous style and bright fun colors. And while she has behaved herself in elevators lately, you never know when this bombastic personality might erupt.
