R&B singer Solange has plenty to brag about. The crooner’s new A Seat at the Table album has crushed its competition atop the sales chart.
According to reports, Solange’s new LP has earned her a first-ever number one debut.
A Seat at the Table launches with 72,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending Oct. 6, according to Nielsen Music — a stronger-than-expected start. Of that sum, 46,000 were in traditional album sales. Bon Iver’s 22, A Million, bows at No. 2 with 71,000 units (58,000 in traditional album sales). (Billboard)
Earlier this week, Tina Knowles boasted about her daughter’s chart-dominating release.

I'm sooooooooooooookoooooooooooo poud of you Solo! I am so happy to see that the world can finally see what I've seen since you were three years old.

Since its recent release, Solange’s album has blown critics away.
