Daniel Julez J. Smith Jr. is a son of Solange Knowles and her first spouse Daniel Smith. He got his name in honor of his dad.
Solange was only 18 when the boy drew his first breath. She calls Daniel her greatest unplanned blessing and claims that he is her inspiration behind everything. And we have some proofs of her words. Thus, her song 6 O’Clock Blues was dedicated to Daniel. Moreover, his birth pushed her forward to advertising Baby Jamz, a hip-hop styled toy collection.
Daniel first attracted public attention by being still in his mother’s womb as Solange appeared Destiny’s Child’s music video Soldier being pregnant. And when he was two, he was a guest at The Tyra Banks Show.
Daniel already tries his hand at rapping and has all the chances to build a successful music career. Moreover, he can speak French.
A curious fact: Daniel has two paternal half siblings: Saniya and Legend.
