Solange is a member of one of the most influential and successful families in the music industry. Not to mention rich! Beyonce and Jay Z have created an empire over the years, but Solange’s career is nothing to sniff at. Check out all the ways Bey’s little sis has created a major net worth over the years.
You may know that Solange makes music, too. But you probably don’t realize how good she is at it! Her first album, Solo Star, came out when she was only 16, and sold over 100,000 copies. Her follow-up, Sol-Angel and the Hadley St. Dreams, had a groovy Motown sound and sold another 138,000 copies. Not as big as Beyonce numbers, but combined her sales are better than flashes in the pan like Carly Rae Jepsen, for example. She frequently hits the festival circuit, like her performance at Coachella with Bey as her back-up dancer. She is currently putting the finishing touches on an album on her own label, Saint Records, distributed through Sony.
Even if you don’t recognize her solo songs, she is also a talented songwriter, nailing a publishing deal with EMI in her early twenties. She wrote Beyonce’s hits “Get Me Bodied” and “Upgrade U.” Hey, writing hits is what made Kandi Burruss major $$$ too! She also produced albums of hip-hop nursery rhymes, inspired by her son, called Baby Jamz.
Solange also has an acting career. She appeared in Bring It On: All or Nothing against Hayden Panettiere, as well as Johnson Family Vacation. She also lent her voice to the cartoon The Proud Family.
She’s a Knowles, so of course Solange has got little projects on the side to nurse her empire. In 2011, she appeared in a cosmetics campaign for Rimmel London. Their other spokesperson? Kate Moss, NBD. Solange was once an ambassador for Armani Jeans as well. Not to mention her involvement with her mother’s House of Dereon fashion line (for which she models and consults). With her recent magazine cover for Lucky, it’s only a matter of time before she pulls in another endorsement deal!
With her album sales, publishing deals, acting roles, and fashion and beauty campaigns, Solange’s net worth is around $3-5 million. And the sky is the limit! Can’t wait to see how her new album does.
