Beyoncé is "proud" of her sister Solange Knowles' new album.

The 30-year-old singer songwriter - who is the younger sister to the 'Lemonade' hitmaker - unveiled her album 'Seat At The Table' on Friday (30.09.16), and the 35-year-old powerhouse has taken to social media to praise her sibling for her "beautiful work of art".

Alongside a clip of Solange's new album - which is her third studio album eight years after her last full length release 'Sol-Angel and the Hadley St. Dreams' - on her Instagram account, Beyoncé wrote: "Congrats to my sister on creating this beautiful work of art. I could not be more proud of you @saintrecords. A Seat At The Table is available today! (sic)."

And Solange has also taken to social media to announce she felt "overwhelmed" with emotion and "excitement" to release her latest music and share her music with her fans.

Alongside a picture of her on her album cover, with her hair filled with clips, she wrote: "My Album, A Seat At The Table, will be released digitally this Friday September 30th.

"Visit www.solangemusic.com to experience the #ASeatAtTheTable digital book now.

I am overwhelmed with gratitude and excitement to share this body of work I have written, with you.

And the star - who married husband Alan Ferguson in 2014 - has recently revealed she also feels a huge sense of relief to have finished her compilation, although she found the initial process "really scary".

Speaking previously, she said: "I am extremely excited; I'm also just relieved in a sense. It's been such a healing process and that's what really started the whole experience, was feeling the need for healing, self-reflection, self-discovery, and empowerment. When I first embarked on the journey it was really scary, and now I feel so empowered and renewed.

"I hope there are songs on this record that anyone having self-doubt could hear, and feel empowered to fight through it."
