Solange Knowles is riding a pretty groovy wave right now after the release of her long awaited new album, A Seat At The Table, which dropped this past Friday.
And although her and older sister Beyonce Knowles have completely different styles when it comes to their musical sounds, the “Cranes In The Sky” singer welcomes the comparisons between her and her sister’s latest album Lemonade.
“It shouldn’t be surprising that two people who grew up in the same household with the same parents who are very, very aware—just like everyone else is—of all of the inequalities and the pain and suffering of our people right now, would create art that reflects that,” the 30-year-old singer said in a new interview with The Fader.
She added, “I’m really proud of my sister and I’m really proud of her record and her work and I’ve always been. As far as I’m concerned, she’s always been an activist from the beginning of her career and she’s always been very, very black. My sister has always been a voice for black people and black empowerment. And I give so much of that credit to my parents.”
