In a lengthy and reflective post, singer-songwriter Solange Knowles has announced that she and her husband, Alan Ferguson, have decided to separate. The “Cranes in the Sky” singer took to her Instagram to reveal the news, describing her former spouse as “a phenomenal man.”


  1. “11 years ago I met a phenomenal man who changed every existence of my life,” she wrote. “Early this year we separated and parted ways, (and tho it ain’t nan no body business). I find it necessary to protect the sacredness of my personal truth and to live in it fully.”

  2. The Saint Records founder delves into her two-year rediscovery of herself that she calls a “transition” and “evolution,” later explaining, “It is unfair to not have power of your own story as you shape and mold and rewrite it yourself. A n*gga ain’t perfect, but I’m leaning into the fear of the unknown and all the glory and power I know exist within god and the universes grace.”

    The Grammy-award-winning artist ended her post saying, “no matter how big or small, be kind to you and filled with incredible love and light!”

    Solange is continuing screenings of her When I Get Home visual album for the rest of the year, into January 2020
