Solange Knowles Launches Own Record Label, Releases New Track with Kendrick Lamar

(Getty Images)Solange Knowles is determined to go her own way. The much-lauded singer, whose single "Losing You" made everyone's "best of" lists in 2012, has just announced plans to launch her own record label.

"Big news day for me! Wasn't ready to announce, but since false info is spreading I will gladly do so:) Supppppperr EXCITED!" Solange tweeted Tuesday. "Super stoked to announce I've started my own label,SAINT RECORDS,where I'll be releasing my music & other projects distributed through SONY! It is through SAINT RECORDS that I will be releasing my full length album, and also future music projects that I'm excited about sharing!"

But don't let the SONY distribution label get you worried about Solange's indie status: "Through Saint Records I will have 100% creative/artistic control & continue to passionately pursue my footing in this new musical movement," Solange added.

Now get a taste for what Solange has planned with her newest track, "Looks Good With Trouble," which features guest verses from Kendrick Lamar.
