Solange was first introduced to the public as Beyonce's sister, but she's certainly made a name for herself these days.

If her performance on Jimmy Kimmel didn't convince you, we don't know what will. This 26-year-old singer, actress, dancer and model is every bit as talented as her sister, and every bit as beautiful, too.

Her 2008 album 'Sol-Angel and the Hadley St. Dreams' peaked at #9 on the Billboard 200 charts, and her third album has a 2013 release date, though the first single 'Losing You,' has already become a radio hit (you can check out the video below).

We can imagine that it's tough to break into the music world and maintain your own identity when your sister is so successful, but Solange has done a pretty great job of maintaining her own identity, and we're glad she's around, that's for sure.
