Did Solange’s career benefit from that elevator fight?

Solange Knowles will probably be more known lately for fighting with her brother-in-law Jay-Z, rather than her own music.

But it’s not all bad for Solange, as it’s been revealed that her recent record sales have soared as a result of the controversy.

Apparently her record sales have increased over 233% and according to Nielson SoundScan the same week in which that CCTV footage was released, digital sales for her single Sandcastle Disco were up 600 from the previous week.

Well, we’re not really surprised given all the publicity she’s got recently but we doubt Solange sees this as a good thing.
