Not only is this a win for Solange, but her no. 1 also adds her and Beyoncé into an elite group of solo siblings to have no. 1 albums in the same year.
Previously, Michael Jackson and Janet Jackson managed the feat, as did Master P and his brother Silkk the Shocker.
Beyonce has logged six previous No. 1s, most recently with 2016’s Lemonade. Michael Jackson tallied six No. 1s (from Thriller in 1983 to the This Is It soundtrack in 2009). Janet Jackson has seven No. 1s (from 1986’s Control through 2015’s Unbreakable).
Master P topped the list in 1997 with Ghetto D, and followed it up in 1998 with MP Da Last Don. Silkk the Shocker led the list once, in 1999, with Made Man.
Notably, Solange and Beyonce both earned No. 1s in the same calendar year, just as Michael and Janet did in 2001 (with Invincible and All For You, respectively).
Congrats to Solange…and Beyoncé.
Dem Knowles Girls better werk!
