Singer Solange Knowles, Beyoncé’s little sister, has parted ways with her label Interscope Geffen A&M.

The 23-year-old singer, known for sharing a lot of information about her private life on Twitter broke the news on the social networking site on Friday October 30th, expressing her choice to pursue her career as an independent artist. Although the end of a partnership with a label can often be perceived as a failure from the artist’s perspective, Solange chose to emphasize on the positive aspects of her collaboration with Interscope Records and the “wonderful journey and experiences” she enjoyed.

However, the overall low sales of her albums may have played a part in her decision to leave Interscope. Rumor has it she might even have actually been dropped from the label, a fact denied by Solange’s father and well-known manager Matthew Knowles…

Let’s bet that thanks to a sister and a father with so many industry connections, Solange’s transition to the indie movement will operate smoothly. After all, she seems nothing but excited by this opportunity to enjoy a new freedom and “create music and art with no boundaries, fears or expectations.” So far, no announcement has been made concerning her next project.

Solange started her career in the shadow of her older sister, breaking into the music scene at 16. She released two studios albums: “Solo Star” in 2003 and “Sol-Angel and the Hadley St. Dreams” in 2008, which peaked at #9 on the Billboard 200.
