Solange started her music career in 2002 after collaborating with Lil Romeo for his album ‘Game Time’ and then with Kelly Rowland for her album ‘Simply Deep.’ The collaborations with them served her well as she got further acquainted with songwriting and music production. She immediately started working on her very own debut music album.
Solange released her first debut single titled ‘Feelin’ You,’ which resonated well with the hip hop audiences. It became an electrifying start for a young musician like her, and the song eventually went big in the club DJ scene as well.
For the next few years, Solange started her career in acting and played some major and minor roles in films like ‘Johnson Family Vacation’ and ‘Bring it On All or Nothing.’ She also had a guest role in ‘One on One.’
In 2007, Solange began working on her second studio album, under the label ‘Geffen Records.’ In mid-2008, the album’ Sol-Angel and the Hadley St. Dreams’ came out. However, she wasn’t pleased with the way the industry worked and didn’t even care to hide her doubts as one of the singles from the album was titled ‘Fuck the Industry.’
Solange made a brave move by breaking her ties with the music labels and decided to go independent, which was considered a suicidal step by the industry experts. Her crazy transition was visible in the single ‘Losing You’ from her EP’ True.’
Apart from her music and acting endeavors, Solange has modeled for Armani and Michael Kors. She and her sister, Beyonce, have also modeled for their family line of clothing, House of Dereon, named after their deceased grandmother.
