You could say Solange Knowles has had one heck of a year. Sure, her EP, True, earned the singer a lot of credit in the music world, and her eccentric style caught the attention of fashionistas everywhere, but what really made Solange stand out happened in an elevator.

In case you forgot (then again, how could you?), Solange quickly became a household name once a video leaked of her alleged fight with her sister Beyoncé’s husband, Jay Z. While both Solange and Jay made a joint statement addressing the matter, the 28-year-old recently opened up about the incident in the August 2014 issue of Lucky.

“What’s important is that my family and I are all good,” Solange explained. “What we had to say collectively was in the statement that we put out, and we all feel at peace with that.”

Well now that Solange is past the fight-seen-around-the-world, this girl can finally get back to what she loves doing most: dancing it up in NOLA (where she now lives), and being a momma to nearly 10-year-old son, Daniel Julez. And you guys? Solange has never been happier, in fact, the proof is in her recent Instagram post.

“#latergram Boyfriend took this of me the other night when we got home from dancing... I was happy. I am happy here. Thank you nola for giving me so many wonderful, rich, and endless days of joy,” the singer/songwriter/producer/fashionista wrote.


“For giving my son one of the best summer experiences. For the night I danced until 8 am in a place filled with nothing but love. I fall in love with you more and more every day. You are magic. I am grateful. #nola.”

Glad you’re doing you, girl!
