Solange Knowles is moving to New Orleans.

The 'Losing You' singer is quitting her Carroll Gardens apartment in New York to relocate to the Louisiana city - nicknamed the 'Big Easy' - with her eight-year-old son Daniel Julez Smith

Solange is hoping to get a property with more space for her son - her child with ex-husband Daniel Smith - and enough room for her to build a home recording studio.

A source told the New York Post newspaper: ''[She] loves the simplicity, warmth and, most importantly, the space she can get in the 'Big Easy'.

''[Her] studio sessions at home [in Brooklyn] would result in the police being called for noise.''

Solange, 27, played a 'Big Apple' farewell gig at a laundry shop not far from her home on Monday night (29.07.13).

The source explained: ''She made a final appearance in her home borough for fans and residents before making the move.''

Solange will also be waving goodbye to her sister Beyonce, 31, who lives in New York City with her husband Jay Z and their 18-month-old daughter Blue Ivy.

Last week, Solange cancelled all her European tour dates saying she needed to spend more time with her family and work on her upcoming album.
