Solange is now a Grammy-winning artist. 

Beyoncé is no longer the only Grammy Award-winning Knowles out there.

Solange Knowles won the Grammy for Best R&B Performance for her song "Cranes in the Sky" at the 59th annual Grammy Awards on Sunday.

The song that earned Solange a statue was the single off of her 2016 album "A Seat at the Table," which reached No. 1 on the Billboard 200 last October, making it her first No. 1 album.

Solange beat out Rihanna, Musiq Soulchild, Ro James and BJ The Chicago Kid for the award. It was the first Grammy award and nomination of her career.

Solange still has a ways to go before she catches her sister, Beyoncé, who earned nine nominations and is in the running for Album, Record and Song of the Year. But that doesn't matter much right now. Let's just appreciate that Solange is making her own name.
