Beyonce's Sis To Release Second Disc

Solange Knowles has signed with Geffen and is ready to go it alone

Solange Knowles, younger sister to good girl pop-star Beyonce, has finally inked a deal with Geffen Records home to Mary J. Blige, Fergie, and Nelly Furtado to name a few.

She has spent the last few years co-writing and making guest appearances on records but now she has changed labels and plans to release her second solo album next year.

According to Billboard Magazine, Solange has been working in a studio in L.A., but don't expect the result to sound anything like Beyonce.

Geffen Records chairman Ron Fair said. "It's not what people would expect from her. The music is more eclectic and international. She's in her own lane. It's a touch of retro with beautiful R&B songs and she's only 22,"

The album titled Just What I Want, is the follow-up to 2003's Solo Star, and is set for release mid 2008.
