The video of Solange attacking her brother-in-law Jay Z in an elevator, which was watched by viewers around the world, no doubt put her on the map. Before, she was often thought of as just “Beyonce’s sister,” or not known at all (especially to mainstream media), but her name can now (unfortunately) stand alone, all due to her angry rampage the world witnessed from the elevator surveillance video. But is it really a bad thing?
According to Nielsen Soundscan data reported on HipHopDX, digital sales of Solange’s music spiked after the leaked video; the following week, 2,000 tracks were sold up from 600 from the prior week.
