Early life

It is not by chance that Beyonce has become the queen of the music industry – Queen Bee, as she is also called. Born on September 4, 1981, in Texas, Beyonce has been singing since childhood when her father took her to various talent contests. Because she was a natural talent, she deepened her knowledge of music at school. And her sister, Solange, is also a singer.

From the age of eight, she formed her own girl band, Girl’s Tyme, which also included her childhood friend, Kelly Rowland. Mathew Knowles, Beyonce’s father, became the band’s manager, quitting his old job. The family’s income suffered a lot, and in the end, the singer’s parents separated.

Career beginning

Success came only after the band changed its name to Destiny’s Child, reduced to four members, and signed its first record deal.

Thus, together with Kelly Rowland and two other classmates, Beyonce founded one of the most popular R&B bands of the 90s. Hit after hit followed: “Bootylicious”, “Say My Name”, “Jumping Jumping”, and “Bills, Bills, Bills” were just some of them. During this period, Beyonce also started other solo projects and debuted in her acting career. Destiny’s Child underwent some member changes, but the success remained the same with hits like “Survivor”, “Soldier” or “Independent Woman”.

Success

Beyonce felt she could do more, and in 2003 she began her solo career with the album “Dangerously in Love”, an instant hit. It sold millions of copies and won five Grammy Awards. This is the period in which the rumors about her relationship with Jay-Z began: the two recorded the song “Crazy in Love” for the album, but they had also worked together on a song from Jay-Z’s album “The Blueprint 2: The Gift & The Curse” from 2002 – “Bonnie & Clyde”.

In 2010, Beyonce stopped working with her father after she was heavily criticized following a private New Year’s Eve concert for Lebanese leader Muammar al-Qaddafi. Later, Beyonce donated the money she won to the victims of the earthquake in Haiti and fired her father, who had arranged the show.
