Let’s rewind back to August, 2008, when R&B/singer-songwriter Solange released her innovation second album, ‘Sol-Angel & the Hadley St. Dreams’, featuring two Billboard’s Top Ten singles, ‘Sandcastle Disco’ and ‘T.O.N.Y.. The album received commercial success, and fans and critics praised it for its eccentricity and fearlessness.

Knowles made something of a creative breakthrough with her second album… it was much more unique than its predecessor, steeped in mid- to late-’60s soul.
One of the year’s more entertaining and easily enjoyable R&B releases. ‘Sol-Angel and the Hadley St. Dreams’ is fun, silly, slightly eccentric and, most importantly, fearless. Throughout, there is a kind of frolicsome adventurousness that is singular and undeniable, even when Solange lets loose with the sourness and addresses her false public image.
More of a modern twist on hip-hop and R&B flecked with tinges of blues and jazz.
Solange’s third studio album ‘A Seat at the Table’ was her first number-one album in the United States. This made her and Beyoncé the first sisters to have both had US number-one albums in a calendar year.
