Solange will be adding ‘ballet composer’ to her resume. Knowles is composing her first ballet score, premiering this September at the New York City Ballet’s annual Fashion Gala.

Knowles becomes the first Black woman to compose a piece for the NYC Ballet. The production includes choreography by Gianna Riesen. Solange took to Instagram to share the incredible news:

The Houston native has built a successful career in music, often creating songs that reflect the experiences of Black women. Her 2016 album, “A Seat at the Table,” garnered mainstream success, with four songs landing on Billboard’s Hot R&B Songs chart. She won a Grammy the same year for best R&B performance for her single “Cranes in the Sky.”
