She first gained world recognition when she showed up as the lead singer of an R&B girl group called ‘Destiny’s Child’ back in the 1990s. With the split of Destiny’s Child in the late 90s/early 2000s, Beyonce pursued a solo career, which earned her a current recognition as one of the best female singers in the globe.

The singers hard work appears to be paying off well as her net worth as of 2020 is estimated to be around 500 million dollars.

Beyonce’s Early Life

Beyonce Giselle Knowles Carter has been an American since birth as she was born to the Knowles family in Houston, Texas, on the 4th of September 1981.

The singer who is married to a famous rapper and business mogul Jay-Z is the daughter to Mathew and Celestine Knowles. The Knowles family appears to have an intense love for the performing arts as Beyonce’s younger sister Solange Knowles is also a singer and was a backup dancer for Destiny’s Child in the 90s.

Beyonce also has an appealing educational background as she attended the High School for the Performing and Visual Arts and later went to Alief Elsik High School, where she joined the choir at St. John’s United Methodist Church.

The singer seems to have done a great job building an acting and a musical career side by side since she put herself out there. Beyonce’s career officially began in 1996 when she became a part of the group Destiny’s Child.

Beyonce’s Career

Beyonce’s early career is believed to have started in 1996 when the group Destiny’s Child was created. Though we do not know much about how the group was formed, we do recall that they released their debut album in 1997, and it was a hit.

The debut album had the famous track ‘No, No, No,’ which became their first massive hit all over the globe. The trio’s second album was released two years later in 1999, and it sold more than 8 million copies worldwide.

Destiny’s Child released a third album, which turned out to be an even more significant success. The third album not only debuted at number one on the Billboard 200, but it also won several Grammy Award nominations.

Later in 2003, she released her first solo album ‘Dangerously in Love,’ and it was a success as her’s has always been an easily recognized and captivating voice.

Beyonce took a three years break to work on her second solo album titled ‘B’Day,’ which was released in 2006. The ‘B’Day’ album was well-reviewed upon its release, mainly because the music style of the album was collected from a broad range of music styles like hip-hop, R&B, and funk that was the rave during the 1970s-80s.

The singer featured in broad combinations of slow, mid-tempo, pop, and R&B ballads and a good number of upbeat electropop in her Third album titled ‘I Am… Sasha Fierce’ which was released in 2008.

The album seemed to be a rebirth for queen B as it went viral and sold more than eight million copies worldwide.

In 2011 she cooked up her 4th album called ‘4’, and she served both as the executive co-writer and producer of the album. Beyonce attempted to bring back R&B to contemporary music, and she succeeded.

Her 4th album was very well received just like the ones before it and appreciated by music critics. In addition to building her music career during these times, she also made appearances in several movies, including the famous ‘A Hip Hopera’ in 2001, ‘The Pink Panther’ in 2006, ‘Obsessed’ in 2009 and ‘Epic’ in 2013.
