Solange & Beyoncé Become The Second Pair Of Siblings With Number One Albums

Solange scored her first number one album with A Seat At The Table, which is the third studio project from the younger Knowles sister. With 72k units sold, it just edged out Bon Iver’s 22 A Million, which debuts this week at number two with 71k. With Beyoncé’s Lemonade topping the charts earlier this year, the sisters join a small group of siblings to both net number one albums, and an even smaller group to do so in the same year. The last pair to do so were Michael and Janet Jackson in 2001 (with Invincible and All For You, respectively.) Other sibling pairs to both net number ones (though not in the same year) were only Master P and Silkk the Shocker, while Ashlee and Jessica Simpson, Toni and Tamar Braxton and Janet and Michael’s brother, Jermaine, all netted top 10s. Congrats, Solo! Check out the rest of the top 10 below.
