NEW YORK (Billboard) - Solange Knowles, Beyonce's younger sister, plans to release her second album in the second quarter of 2008 under a new deal with Geffen Records.
Knowles, 21, is currently in a Los Angeles studio recording "Hadley Street Dreams," the follow-up to 2003's Columbia release "Solo Star," which reached No. 49 on the Billboard 200 and spent four weeks on the tally.
"Her record is totally bananas," Geffen Records chairman Ron Fair told Billboard.com. "It's not what people would expect from her. The music is more eclectic and international. She's in her own lane."
