Cheque Up On It: Turns Out The Best Thing For Solange's Career Was A Bust Up With Jay Z

Although Solange Knowles may have left a little bit of her dignity in that lift during the Met Gala debacle with brother-in-law Jay Z, it turns out all was not lost for the singer as her record sales soar. 

In the aftermath of what will undoubtedly be one of the biggest celebrity stories of the year folk flocked to find out just as much about Beyoncé's younger sister as they could, and where better to start than with Solange's music.

According to Nielsen SoundScan data for the week ending May 18th, the 'Sandcastle Disco' singer's digital sales were at 2,000 downloads, up from 600 the previous week.

Record sales have increased by a phenomenal 233 per cent despite the recent controversy.

In happier times: Solange, Beyoncé and Jay Z.

Solange, who released her EP 'True' back in 2012, has remained away from media spotlight since celebrity gossip website, TMZ obtained footage showing the Mum-of-one lashing out at Beyoncé's husband Jay Z in an elevator at The Standard Hotel, New York.

So it is true what they say, there really is no such thing as bad publicity.
