Beyoncé

One of the most recognizable characters in modern-day R&B, Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter first rose to fame as the siren-voiced centerpiece of Destiny's Child before embarking on a multi-platinum solo career in 2001. Since her 2003 debut she has collectively sold well over 100 million albums, with Dangerously in Love, B'Day, I Am...Sasha Fierce, 4, and Beyoncé all debuting at number one on the Billboard 200 chart upon their respective releases. Booming record sales, multiple Grammy awards, movie roles, a fashion line, and marriage to rapper/CEO Jay-Z have helped make Beyoncé one of the most powerful and influential women in the entertainment world. ~ Andrew Leahey

    Beyoncé, Kendrick, Kanye, and How the World Seeks to Limit Black Genius

    If one were attempting to define black genius in its modern form, the week of April 16 provides no shortage of starting points. We could begin with Beyoncé Knowles-Carter—the singer, mother, and pop maximalist who understands that music can, and should, be a kind of cinema—and her historically transcendent Coachella performance. Or we could just as easily begin with Kendrick Lamar; the Compton, California artist became the first rapper to be awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Music, for his searing album DAMN.
