If she hasn't done it with her previous work then she is doing it now. Solange is a completely separate artist from her sister. 

The Guardian's Michael Cragg writes:

With only one song released since True – 2013’s knowingly titled Cash In, the last track from the Saint Heron compilation album she curated to “highlight and align a new movement of contemporary, genre-defying R&B visionaries” – Knowles is also not an artist to be rushed. A Seat at the Table is only her third album since her debut Solo Star (2003), but it’s an album that showcases a very different, much more socially aware and outward-looking artist. From her recent essay detailing the alleged racially-motivated abuse she and her family received at a Kraftwerk concert, to her support of the Black Lives Matter movement, A Seat at the Table – the title itself a nod to giving voice to the voiceless and creating a level platform for change – is imbued with a sense of trying to make sense of the world. Or, as she says in the press release, it’s “a project on identity, empowerment, independence, grief and healing”.

Solange is her own person and own music artist... completely separate from her sister, Queen Bey.

It's totally fine to be fans of both or to be even be critics of both without comparing the two.

#MusicComparisonsFair

But there are Solange fans who believe she is a better artist than her sister, and some of the comparisons are actually stating that criticism.

#MusicComparisonsFair

Fans have been saying "Solange is better than Beyonce" for years!

#MusicComparisonsFair

Some say that Beyonce is an amazing performer, but Solange is better at her artistry.

#MusicComparisonsFair

There are also those fans who can't say that Solange is better than Bey because it's Queen Bey. No one is greater than the queen!
