Debuted in 1997 with the biggest girlgroup of the 90s and 2000s Destiny's Child, 2 years before Christina, Jennifer Lopez, Britney and the whole teenpopsplosion.

 

 

 

Started a smashing solo career in 2003, a year before Ciara and 2 years before Rihanna. Dangerously in Love spawned 2 #1 hits, arguably the MOST iconic and remembered female debut single of all time; Crazy in Love, Baby Boy and 2 Top 5s; Me Myself and I and Naughty Girl.

She followed this through with her 2nd era B'Day which contained one of the most iconic songs of all time Irreplaceable which stayed atop the US charts for more than 10 weeks. Single Ladies and Run The World are another set of iconic remembered hits from her catalogue throughout the late 00s and the early 10s that proved her as the Female Artist of the 00s.

Continued onward to 2010s with her world shattering impactful self titled 5th album BEYONCÉ, despite no singles being bonafide hits, it changed the music industry's perception of release dates and not conforming to certain days to release. Her visual album as well sparked interest in the whole album rather than pushing out quick little singles. Beyoncé was still the talk of the town in 2012-onwards at a time when women like Lady Gaga, Ariana Grande, Taylor Swift and Katy Perry ruled the charts That soon was followed by the US-centric and politically driven album LEMONADE which spawned a Top 10 single that created commotion and political conversations across the United States; Formation.

Beyoncé debuted at the time of Mariah Carey ruling the charts, and is still the talk of the town at a time of dominance by women like Ariana Grande and Billie Eilish; a woman who was born 5 years after she debuted.

Regardless of Tidal, she’s the fifth most streamed female on Spotify and Apple Music. Literally in a group with Ariana Grande and Billie Eilish...

Then I don't understand how her EIL and The Gift have done so badly? Are they streaming old music?

Music Not The Bling, with albums like 4, ST, Lemonade, and directing the Black Is King film, it is quite clear she strives to have music, videos,  and live performances that stand the test of time and leave as a testament of the legacy she has made for herself.

 

Hop on a few remixes to snatch a hit to keep people talking about her, meanwhile make legendary albums that will be adored by critics and award shows.Truly the best of both worlds we love a Smart AND talented woman! <3

GIFT, Spirit, EIL & Black Parade bombed on streaming. Quite suspicious how she was so good in streaming until Tidal was exposed for scamming. She has been tanking ever since.

Lol.

My fave has 12B streams on Spotify within 3 years and is the Second Biggest Female on Apple Music only after Ariana. Not to mention how she stomps on beyoncee on Youtube. Go & compare your fave with Gaga, not Taylor aka The Music industry

So we're not allowed to post anything after making an account here?  I've been a long time lurker here.

 

OT

Beyonce couldn't transition in to streaming era. GIFT, Black Parade, EIL & Spirit tanking is a major indication of that.
