We gave it a C+

Nepotism cuts two ways. Solange Knowles may greatly benefit from being the little sister to the most bootylicious figure in current R&B (Beyoncé of Destiny’s Child), but she also suffers from the steep comparison. Solange’s debut, Solo Star, fulfills a cynic’s worst suspicion: It’s a hollow stencil of DC’s last work. Is that destiny or just a lack of imagination?
