Solange On A Seat At The Table: It Made Me ‘A Better Human’

Her first No. 1 record is so much more than a hit — it’s a transformation

Now that A Seat at the Table has entranced listeners, stunned critics, and earned Solange her first chart-topping record, she's taking a minute to reflect on the album's first week — and sharing her success with her fans, in all senses of the word.

After Billboard confirmed that A Seat at the Table went to No. 1 on the Billboard 200, she expressed her joy — and appreciation — on Twitter.

She then went on to thank her collaborators on the effort, and to speak to how the album impacted her growth not only as an artist, but as a person: A Seat has proven to be a necessary listen, but it was a necessary effort from Solange with a profound emotional and spiritual footprint, too.

Honestly? We should be thanking you, Solange, 'cause this is album is so much more than an AOTY contender.
