Beyonce has been on the prowl since she first hit the scene in 2005 and she's been on the road to success ever since. She is one of the best selling female artists of all time, with over 200 million albums sold worldwide. And she's not just a singer; she's also a philanthropist. Her charitable foundation, Beyonce Foundation, was founded to give back to the community.
The Beyonce self-titled album, released in 2013, contains 16 tracks. On the surface, it appears to be a more or less streamlined version of her previous work. There are several standouts, though. This list includes the Beynons, a sassy single ladies, and a hefty dose of funk. Of course, she isn't shy about putting her own spin on any song. Some songs, like the Beynons, take a distinctly New Orleans approach, and feature New Orleans Bounce icon Big Freedia. With the notable exception of her first solo studio album, Queen, which is a decidedly tame affair, Beyonce has a penchant for straddling the line between pop and R&B, which is not a bad thing.
In her spare time, she also takes part in the occasional charity event or two, and she's also a jack of all trades: writer, actress, singer, songwriter, dancer, and more. She has a lot on her plate, but her dedication to her craft is undeniable. From her early days of edgy club-hop to her latest hits, Beyonce has never shied away from a challenge, and her latest single, "Renaissance", is a good example of that.
