Celebrity mom Tina Knowles has plenty to brag about these days after witnessing her daughter Solange land a first-ever album debut atop the sales charts.

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.

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.
