Meanwhile, the 18-year-old Beyonce was already catapulting to fame with Destiny’s Child — and making her parents proud. “My parents constantly tried to talk me out of being an artist,” Solange told Harper’s Bazaar in a March interview.

The younger of the two talented Knowles siblings tried desperately to follow in her big sister’s footsteps, starting her singing career at age 5 and beginning to write songs at age 9 — but after never attaining Beyonce’s fame (and, more important, fortune), Solange has finally come to terms with who she is: a single mom living part time in Brooklyn and fitting right in. Last summer, for instance, Solange and pals rolled up on bicycles to a Vitaminwater concert at a Boerum Hill Laundromat, where Solange sang atop a washing machine. “Beyonce was never going to happen, so Solange was great," says one person who was there, remembering how accessible Solange was to fans and press after the show.

Unfortunately, the 2003 pop and R&B album didn’t get much play, only peaking at number 49 on the Billboard 200 chart.

“I still stand behind the stuff I did early on, but I was on a record label and I didn’t have a lot of creative control," she told Harper's Bazaar.

She became a back-up dancer for Destiny’s Child by the time she was 13, and occasionally filled in for the lead singers on stage, such as when Kelly Rowland broke her toe while the group was on tour with Christina Aguilera.
