SOLANGE CO-PENS MICHELLE WILLIAMS #1 HIT SONG 'WE BREAK THE DAWN'

SANTA MONICA, Calif., July 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Not only is the talented
Solange Knowles making hit songs for herself (her single "I Decided," produced
by Pharrell Williams, has been #1 on Billboard's "Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles
Sales" and "Hot Dance Singles Sales" charts for 2 weeks!), as a songwriter she
continues to knock out the hits for others. "We Break The Dawn," the hot new
song she co-wrote for label mate Michelle Williams lands at the #1 spot on
Billboard's "Hot Dance Airplay" chart.
    Solange also recently won an "R&B and Hip-Hop Song" ASCAP award for the
hit single "Get Me Bodied," that she co-wrote for Beyonce's B-Day.
    But the sassy singer's talents don't stop at singing and songwriting.  On
July 15, 2008, she put on the hat of video director when she made her
directorial debut with "Sandcastle Disco" (written by Cee-Lo and produced by
Soulshock & Karlin), the second (2nd) single off of her sophomore release,
SoL-AngeL & The Hadley St. Dreams due on August 26th.
    Solange, forever having a creative mind, wrote the treatment for
"Sandcastle Disco," just as she did for her first (1st) single, "I Decided."
The video is a journey into a cutting edge, inventive, fantasy land of
abstract visuals that come together to make a video that is a rollercoaster
ride for the viewer that only gets better just when he/she thinks its over.
    It's a living pop up book... each page folding over and zooming into the
next. The colors are vivid, I used many references from the movie Across The
Universe that are links in the treatment and also the HP commercials we've
seen running with Jay-Z and Serena Williams, states Solange.
    The forthcoming release of SoL-AngeL & The Hadley St. Dreams boast an
incredible array of producers and guest appearances including Motown's own
Lamont Dozier who teams up with the talented Mark Ronson on the captivating
"6 O'clock Blues," The Freemasons remix of "I Decided," and chart-topping
Lil' Wayne shares the spotlight on "ShampagneChronicKnightCap."  Other talent
on SoL-AngeL & The Hadley St. Dreams includes Boards of Canada, Jack Splash,
Bama Boyz, Shea Taylor, Marsha Ambrosius of Floetry and more.
