List of Info

Beyonce is one of the most loved and appreciated singers of all time. She is passionate about everything she does. She inspires the mass audience to do whatever they want and her songs are something that will make you sway all along. So today in appreciation of this amazing personality here’s the list of the top 10 songs by Beyonce. Grab those earphones and let the music sink in.

Dangerously in Love

Dangerously in Love

On one level, Dangerously in Love – previously recorded by Destiny’s Child – is a decent, standard-issue R&B ballad, nothing like as distinctive as Beyoncé’s greatest songs. But it’s all about the vocal performance on her solo version, it switches from intimacy and vulnerability to full-throttle power always maintaining a hint of rawness.

Drunk in Love

Drunk in Love  

Drunk in Love feels symbolic of a distinct loosening up of Beyoncé’s expertly choreographed image. A song about the messy cocktail of alcohol and sex, its lyrics are filled with gleeful double entendres – “park it in my lot”, “ride it on my surfboard” – while its music is equal parts woozy and euphoric.

Déjà Vu

Déjà Vu 

A Jay-Z guest slot, blasting brass and a distinct old-school funk feel, but Déjà Vu is more than just Crazy in Love 2.0. There’s an argument that, while less hooky, it’s a melodically stronger song than its more famous sibling, and the intro, where Beyoncé gradually introduces each instrument over an urgent bassline, is spectacularly exciting.

All Night

All Night  

A low-key delight amid Lemonade’s attention-grabbing hell-hath-no-fury, All Night is, in its own way, as striking as anything on the album. A beautifully written song about the seldom-explored topic of long-term monogamy, its musical setting nods towards 60s southern soul, lent extra power by the emotional commitment in her voice.

Daddy Lessons

Daddy Lessons  

Always smart in her choice of collaborators, Beyoncé’s pairing here with Nashville refuseniks the Chicks is particularly inspired. She appends their country sound with old-fashioned New Orleans jazz-infused R&B, a stunning act of artistic dot-joining and evidence of a genuinely original, eclectic musical mind.

Partition

Partition 

A song in two superb parts. The first is redolent of co-producer Timbaland’s visionary golden-era work – the beats created by banging on a bucket and decorated with smears of atonal synth; the second is sultry, minimal electro featuring Beyoncé in almost Prince-Esque dirty-minded mode: “He Monica Lewinskyed all over my gown”.

Get Me Bodied

Get Me Bodied  

The best thing on Beyoncé’s unfortunately named second album, B-Day. Get Me Bodied has a tough Swizz Beatz-produced backing comprised of nothing but drums and chanting voices and a Beyoncé vocal to match, its rawness sounding closer to prime-time Tina Turner than 00s diva. The six-minute extended mix is the version of choice.

Sorry

Sorry  

The line about Becky with the good hair broke the internet, but Sorry is full of killer lyrics, an expression of cold rage at a partner’s infidelity. More than a canny manipulation of prurient interest in her private life, Sorry is a fantastic song, its sparse echoing electronics as icy as the singer’s mood.

Crazy in Love

Crazy in Love 

If you’re going to embark on a solo career, this is the way to announce it: by releasing one of the most impermeable pop singles of the 21st century, a song in which everything is so inarguably great – vocal, rap, Chi-Lites sample – that it almost immediately goes beyond hit status and just becomes a fact of life.

Formation

Formation  

Beyoncé’s solo catalog is rich and diverse, and she has kept her standard set to high. Even without recourse to the oeuvre of Destiny’s Child, you could easily replace half the tracks in this list with others without denting the quality of what’s there. It makes picking the No 1 a thankless task, but Formation does everything you might conceivably want a Beyoncé song to do in three and a half minutes.
