Beyoncé | Biography and music
Time has passed for that little girl who, at the age of 8, put together her first band. Over 40 years old, abortions, infidelities and controversies, her musical career has been that of the biggest female Pop and R&B star, both solo and in the all-female group Destiny’s Child. Don’t miss her complete story.
Chapter 1 | First years, first experiences
- Her father, Mathew Knowles, was a sales manager for Xerox and her mother, Tina Knowles changed her job as a banker for the world of image, as a stylist at her own beauty salon called ‘Headliners‘ 💇♀️
- Tina has always been Beyoncé’s head stylist, as well as quite a star on social media nowadays.
- Solange is the name of Beyoncé’s sister, who is also immersed in the entertainment industry and even composed some songs in the early days of Destiny’s Child. They have always been very close, since they were running around like crazy in the park in front of their house, until today.
- Unfortunately, not everything was happy during Beyoncé’s childhood. Her father abandoned her and her mother when she was only two months old and returned when he saw that he could take advantage of his eldest daughter’s talent.
- She did it with Kelly Rowland, LaTavia Roberson and three other girls, named ‘Girl’s Tyme‘.
- A year earlier, at the age of 7, she entered a school talent contest, where she won the victory and a standing ovation from the audience thanks to her interpretation of the song ‘Imagine‘ by John Lenon 🏆
Kelly Rowland lived with Beyoncé’s family because she and her mother had moved to her neighborhood to escape her abusive father. Kelly’s mother, who had little means, gave legal custody to Beyoncé’s parents, so they lived together.
Beyoncé has always said that there was a lot of love in her home ❤️
- Because of her shyness, her parents also enrolled her in dance classes at St. Mary’s Elementary School in Fredericksburg and her name was in the press as a candidate to win the local performing arts award. She went on to study years later at Houston High School for the Performing and Visual Arts.
Even though she already knew she was more than good at music, it was at that school that she discovered she really had talent, so she began training in the subject at Alief Elsik High School and joined the choir at St. John’s United Methodist Church ⛪
Beyoncé Girl’s Tyme
Why is she called ‘Beyoncé’?
Beyoncé’s name originated from her mother’s maiden name. Tina Knowles-Lawson was registered as Célestine Beyoncé and as the strong-willed woman she is, she made sure her surname was passed on in one form or another through her daughter. The funny thing? That Tina’s siblings are surnamed ‘Beyincé‘, hers was ‘Beyoncé‘ because of a clerical error on their birth certificates 😲
Chapter 2 | The ambition of a father who raised Destiny’s Child
- The group was originally formed by LeToya Luckett, Kelly Rowland, LaTavia Roberson and Beyoncé herself.
- As for the group’s name, they were going to be called The Cliché or The Dolls, but thanks to the intervention of Tina Knowles, Beyoncé’s mother, the group found in Destiny’s Child its biblical name 📖
- This change of job provoked the most absolute ambition, since Beyoncé’s family had cut their income in half, and Mathew Knowles wanted to make the most of the opportunity he had in front of him.
- In 1995, the quartet signed their first record deal with Elektra Records, although they were fired without ever releasing any work, causing family tensions, which led to the separation of Beyoncé’s parents for a while 🖊
Destiny’s Child Killing Time
Destiny’s Child Say My Name
- With this song begins their path to stardom. In 1998 the young girls debut on the music scene with their first eponymous studio album, ‘Destiny’s Child‘, introduced by ‘No, No, No’.
- During that time, everything seems to be going smoothly for the girls, but problems arrive when, after the release of ‘The Writing’s on the Wall‘, LaTavia Roberson and LeToya Luckett demand that Mathew Knowles ceases to be the group’s agent 😲
- Far from solving the existing problems, Beyoncé’s father gets both singers to leave the band and replaces them with Michelle Williams and Farrah Franklin, camouflaging the internal problems of the group with hits like ‘Say My Name‘.
Between copyright lawsuits, distribution of profits, awards and the relevance achieved by the group, Farrah Franklin leaves the band not being able to bear the pressure, so the group ends up becoming a trio led by Beyoncé and Kelly Rowland.
It was also a very hard time for Beyoncé, she suffered a depression of almost 2 years. There were days when she would lock herself in her room and I wouldn’t even eat 🍗
- The trio’s success continued in in 2001 with the smash hit ‘Survivor‘, composed by Beyoncé herself. The album, titled as the single, did stratospheric numbers 🔝
- As a second single, Destiny’s Child released ‘Bootylicious’, a track with a made-up word that to this day has its own definition in the Oxford dictionary.
Sexually attractive especially with a voluptuous backside
Destiny’s Child Survivor
- At that time the successful rapper Jay-Z invited her to sing with him in his song, ’03 Bonnie & Clyde. She had met him about 5 years earlier, around 1997 and they were already friends, later they would become much more 👩❤️💋👨
In 2003 she would finally release Beyoncé’s first solo album, ‘Dangerously in Love‘.

Perfumes for fragrance allergy
Beyoncé is allergic to the composition of most perfumes on the market. That is why throughout her career she has launched fragrances such as ‘True Star‘ or ‘True Star Gold‘. Reportedly, their formulations are entirely designed to be used by the singer 🤧
- Despite the success, the girls felt it was the end of their road as a group and decided to say a final goodbye to the band. But don’t worry, they are still very close friends.

- That year, Beyoncé continued to release songs in Spanish, this time collaborating with Alejandro Fernández on ‘Amor Gitano’.
