Beyonce Knowles' kid sister Solange is living her life in reverse following the release of her debut solo album a year ago (JAN03) - because she's planning to spend the rest of 2004 in college.

The 17-year-old has decided to head back to school, despite already tasting pop success with the release of SOLO STAR.

She has also acted in new movie THE JOHNSON FAMILY VACATION and got married earlier this year (04).

Solange explains, "I've always been surrounded by the industry but I just wanted to try and take time and see what it's like to have a normal life."
