(Radio.com) Solange Knowles released her new 21-track album A Seat At The Table last week, and in a recent interview with Fader, she addresses the similarities between her record and her sister Beyonce's last release, Lemonade.

Solange says A Seat at the Table is "a project on identity, empowerment, independence, grief and healing," and if that sounds familiar it's because she and Beyonce were raised in the same house and have shared many of the same experiences.

"We have the same mother and the same father. We grew up in the same household, and so we had and heard the same conversations . . . these very politically-charged, socially-charged conversations," she explains. "It shouldn't be surprising that two people who grew up in the same household with the same parents who are very, very aware -- just like everyone else is -- of all of the inequalities and the pain and suffering of our people right now, would create art that reflects that."

Solange stressed that there are no sour grapes between her and Beyonce and that she is "really proud" of her sister and Lemonade. "As far as I'm concerned, she's always been an activist from the beginning of her career and she's always been very, very black," she adds. "My sister has always been a voice for black people and black empowerment. And I give so much of that credit to my parents." Read more here.
