Solange also says that success means making her son a top priority. "First, being a loving and committed mother. I have failed in all things if I have not achieved that."
Despite having to balance motherhood and her blossoming career, which includes being a spokesperson for beauty brand Carol's Daughter and working on a new album, Solange is also devoting time to the new love of her life.
