Perhaps Solange Knowles should attack Jay Z every month.

As the entire Internet knows by now, Solange violently confronted her brother-in-law in the elevator of New York’s Standard Hotel on May 5.

Punches were thrown. A purse was whipped. Kicks were… kicked.

Oh, and record sales subsequently exploded!

Solange Record Sales: HUGE!

According to Nielsen SoundScan data for the week ending on May 18, Solange’s digital sales went from 600 downloads to 2,000 downloads in the course of seven days.

That’s an increase of 233 percent!


About a week after video of Solange’s attack went viral, she, Beyonce and Jay Z released a statement.

In part, it read: "We love each other and above all we are family. We’ve put this behind us and hope everyone else will do the same."

The sisters have also posted a number of new Instagram photos, depicting themselves smiling in one another’s company.

As for why Solange went on the offensive in the first place… we have no idea. But we do have some theories.
