Her mom, Tina Knowles, took to Instagram to praise A Seat at the Table, and her message to Solange was super-sweet.

"I'm sorry Solange I'm a let you finish," she wrote, copying Kanye West's infamous words from when he interrupted Taylor Swift at the MTV VMAs, "but I have to say that I have to finish and Beyonce and myself and Kelly and Angie have often had conversations about you saying 'we will cherish the day that the world knows how talented and creative and amazing an artist you are'! I do believe that the day has arrived thank you Almighty God!!! You are-awesome and thank you to all the fans who supported this record you are awesome also !!"

Solange worked for nearly a decade on the album, which is already being compared to her older sister Beyoncé's smash hit Lemonade.

"It shouldn’t be surprising that two people who grew up in the same household with the same parents who are very, very aware — just like everyone else is — of all of the inequalities and the pain and suffering of our people right now, would create art that reflects that," Solange told Fader in an interview about being compared to Beyoncé.

She continued, "I’m really proud of my sister and I’m really proud of her record and her work and I’ve always been. As far as I’m concerned, she’s always been an activist from the beginning of her career and she’s always been very, very black. My sister has always been a voice for black people and black empowerment. And I give so much of that credit to my parents."
