CELEBRITY Retrospective

Beyoncé is likely the most well-known singer around the world, and she's one of the few stars who has achieved this legacy through an almost unbelievably clean, uphill trajectory. It seems with each project or performance she outdoes herself, and at this point she really is her only competition at the top. Even in 2021 she broke the record for the most Grammys won by any female artist, as well as any singer ever, with a whopping 28 awards to her name. And she's not even close to being done.

She decided to lend her talents to the film industry after a screening of the inspiring new Will Smith movie, 'King Richard.' Smith stars as Richard Williams, the father of star tennis players Venus and Serena Williams. It tells the story of their unusual start in the world of tennis. Beyoncé reportedly offered to provide a song for the soundtrack after watching the movie, and has now released her new single 'Be Alive.' The empowering anthem is the perfect match for a movie the documents the strength of two young girls finding success in a world that was slow to accept them. “The marriage of a movie and a song is a kind of magic that’s unmatched in entertainment,” Smith said in an interview. “I was so happy when Beyoncé called.”

To celebrate this milestone year when Queen Bey turns 40, why not read some interesting facts about Beyoncé's story so far? From her style inspiration to her favorite film, once you're done here you may as well be a part of the Beyhive (if you aren't already).
