Solange sees whopping record sales boost following notorious 'lift-gate' drama with Jay Z

Singer Solange Knowles has seen a whopping boost in her record sales since her notorious elevator fight with her brother-in-law Jay Z went viral online.

Earlier this month, footage captured the 27-year-old seemingly lashing out at her rapper brother-in-law, Beyonce’s husband, as they left The Standard Hotel following New York’s Met Gala ball.

The trio have since spoken out about the CCTV footage, claiming they have ‘worked through’ their issues.

But it looks like the old saying ‘no publicity is bad publicity’ still rings true as Solange has seen her record sales increase by a massive 233 per cent.

The R&B singer’s digital sales were at 2,000 downloads for the week ending in May 18, up from 600 the previous week, Nielsen SoundScan reports.

Solange’s last release was her 2012 Ep ‘True’.
