Matthew Knowles, the father of Beyoncé and Solange, says he is moving on from the music industry.
“In the next two years, I will have transitioned completely out of the music industry… my plan is to be completely dedicated to mentoring, academia,” he told the outlet. “There’s nothing negative about [the decision]. I’m personally ready to move on. I’ll continue to teach about the music business.”

“I want to talk to Nancy Brown, who is the [CEO] of the American Heart Association. Vice President Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, Wendy Williams, Oprah… I want diversity. I’m always looking to how to diversify my guests,” Knowles said of his podcast.
