In honour of the birthday of the one and only Queen Bey, here are seven Beyonce music videos that rocked the past decade.
1. ‘Crazy In Love’ ft. JAY Z
Let’s begin from the beginning, shall we? Beyoncé launched her solo career with a bang when she dropped this as a lead single from her debut album, ‘Dangerously In Love’.
Everything about this video was iconic: the style, the set, the hair, that Jay Z feature and who can forget, all that bootylicious twerking.
Also known as the ‘To The Left’ song, ‘Irreplaceable’ is one of Beyoncé ‘s most popular female empowerment anthems. The video notably featured Queen B’s all female band and enough sass to inspire four generation of women.
3. ‘Sweet Dreams’
The great thing about Beyoncé is that with each visual offering she reinvents herself and pushes boundaries we did not even know existed. The singer proved once again that she was the complete package: musician, dancer and fashion icon. That gold Thierry Mugler body suit that she wore at the end is still one of the fiercest fashion moments in recent pop history.
4. ‘Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)’
Speaking of fierce, Sasha Fierce slayed the entire internet with this clip. Long before viral videos became an every day thing, Beyoncé had celebrities, teachers, government officials, everyone really twisiting their hands in the air. The minimalist video, which was choreography heavy, will remain Beyoncé at her most iconic.
5. ‘Love On Top’
One of the reasons why we love Beyoncé is because she loves paying tributes to those who inspire her. Her New Edition tribute was carried out with so much grace and expertise. Only Beyoncé could pull of such a stunt.
6. ‘Drunk In Love’ ft. JAY Z
Queen Bey has proved time and again that she does not need special effects and elaborate sets to make a killer video. Between those great pipes and diva attitude, any Beyoncé video is bound to be amazing.
The simplicity of the black and white ‘Drunk In Love’ music video, in a time when people were going big or going home, spoke to the level of sophistication and artistry that Beyoncé harnesses.
If there is one thing that Beyoncé music videos are consistently known for, it is making a political statement.
Between the usual flawless Beyoncé choreography and the brilliantly executed direction of the music video, there was no way anyone would watch this video without believing that they too can truly slay.
