Beyoncé




Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter (born 4 September 1981) is an American singer, songwriter, record producer and actress. Born and raised in Houston, Texas, she performed in various singing and dancing competitions as a child and rose to fame in the late 1990s as lead singer of R&B girl-group Destiny’s Child. She released her first solo album, Dangerously in Love (2003), during the hiatus of Destiny’s Child.

It debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200 and produced the singles “Crazy in Love”, “Baby Boy”, “Me, Myself and I”, “Naughty Girl” and “The Closer I Get to You”. With “Crazy in Love” and Dangerously in Love, Beyoncé became the first female artist  and the fifth artist ever to top both the singles and albums charts simultaneously in the United States and the United Kingdom. In 2003, “Crazy in Love” and “Baby Boy” peaked at number one on the US Billboard Hot 100 for eight and nine weeks, respectively. Dangerously in Love has sold over 11 million copies worldwide.

Following the disbandment of Destiny’s Child in June 2005, she released her second solo album, B’Day (2006), which contained hits “Déjà Vu”, “Irreplaceable”, and “Beautiful Liar”. Beyoncé also ventured into acting, with a Golden Globe-nominated performance in Dreamgirls (2006) and starring roles in The Pink Panther (2006) and Obsessed (2009). Her marriage to rapper Jay Z and portrayal of Etta James in Cadillac Records (2008) influenced her third album, I Am… Sasha Fierce (2008), which saw the birth of her alter-ego Sasha Fierce and earned a record-setting six Grammy Awards in 2010, including Song of the Year for “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)”.

Beyoncé took a hiatus from music in 2010 and took over management of her career; her fourth album 4 (2011) was subsequently mellower in tone, exploring 1970s funk, 1980s pop, and 1990s soul. Beyoncé critically acclaimed fifth album, Beyoncé (2013), was distinguished from previous releases by its experimental production and exploration of darker themes. Her sixth album, Lemonade (2016), was released in conjunction with a short film of the same name. The album became her most critically acclaimed work to date.
