Knowles went to Instagram yesterday (October 9) to both celebrate Solange’s A Seat at the Table‘s sales dominance and react to seeing her daughter make history with sibling Beyoncé.
How about those Knowles girls ❤️I'm sorry if it seems like I'm bragging, but I just couldn't be more proud right now to see this family history being made, and I also know how hard they work and how much sacrifice they made to do this so they deserve all the Kudos! I am proud to say that they follow two awesome sibling duos ! Micheal and Janet Jackson and Master P and Silk The Shocker. ❤️
Solange made personal history by landing her first-ever number one release.
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 in the week, Tina 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.

When you walked thru Sharpstown mall with Angie and everybody was laughing because you had on those platform shoes and Japanese prints stockings and mixed prints braids down past your butt😀you didn't care!
