One of the most recognizable figures in contemporary music, Beyoncé rose to fame in the 1990s as the central member of Destiny's Child, and the following decade embarked on a multi-platinum, record-breaking solo career with Dangerously in Love (2003), her first in an unbroken string of number one albums. Chart-topping singles such as "Crazy in Love" (2003), "Irreplaceable" (2006), and "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)" (2008), combined with sold-out world tours and Grammy awards, all heightened her profile in the 2000s. Once she released her self-titled fifth solo album in 2013, it became evident Beyoncé wasn't merely an entertainer but a progressive artist as well. The notion was affirmed with Lemonade (2016) and Everything Is Love (2018), the latter of which was a collaboration with husband Jay-Z.
