About Beyoncé

Beyoncé has sold more than 75 million records and is one of the most notable artists in the world, having earned a total of 16 Grammy Awards - 13 as a solo artist and three as a member of Destiny's Child. Beyoncé's fame blossomed in the '90s as lead singer of the group, which became one of the best-selling music ensembles of all time. Later Beyoncé released her debut solo album Dangerously in Love, which produced the No. 1 hits: "Crazy in Love" and "Baby Boy," making it one of the most successful albums of 2003. Beyoncé's sophomore album, B'DAY and subsequent third studio release, I AM...SASHA FIERCE, produced the household hits "Irreplaceable," "Beautiful Liar" and "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)." Both earned her a top spot on the Billboard 200 chart. In 2008, I AM... SASHA FIERCE earned six Grammy Awards - the most Grammys ever won by a female artist in one night. Beyoncé was honored this May at the 2011 Billboard Music Awards with the Millennium Award. Her latest album, 4, was recently certified Platinum by the RIAA and described by music critics as her most accomplished work yet, genre busting, bold and vibrant. 4 was a platform for the star to stretch her musical tastes and showcase her pitch-perfect voice. "What matters to Beyoncé is actually the music," states NPR. And The New York Times calls her "relentlessly perfect."
