Band Or Solo Artist?: Both
Band Name(s): Destiny's Child
Genre: Pop, R&B, Hip-Hop
Greatest Hit: "Crazy in Love" (2003)
Beyoncé Knowles has it all. Starting out with Destiny's Child, the trio killed the charts with hits including "Bills, Bills, Bills" and "Independent," among others. Eventually, Knowles ventured out on her own, with no shade from the other two stars, Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland. Your memory of her hit singles "Crazy In Love" and "Single Ladies" (and the parodies it spawned) is proof enough of her impact as a solo artist.
Beyond that, Mrs. Jay-Z is physically stunning; her dance moves, her attitude—basically everything about her—makes her beautiful, and she's never steered away from her timeless, classy image. Who can seriously compete with her?
