18 Times Beyoncé Described Our Lives in Songs

Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter is a woman who has been making us fall crazy in love with her starting from her time in Destiny’s Child to her multi-faceted solo career that has established her as one of the greatest artists of all time. We know Beyoncé not only as a mother, wife, singer, actress and philanthropist, but as the friend who told us ladies it’s okay to be single, as a feminist that deemed us all ***flawless and as a human being who said she is just like us. So, here is a literal countdown of all of the times Queen Bey wrote and sang about common events in all our lives and looked fabulous doing so.

1. "Crazy in Love (feat. JAY Z)"

The first track off her first solo album, Beyoncé knew that we had all been there before.

2. "Naughty Girl"


3. "Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It)"

This independence anthem for women gave us both the “Single Ladies” dance and the message that your self-worth does not rely on your relationship status.

4. "Me, Myself and I"

For all the ladies, Beyoncé straight-up told us to kick our cheating, using and lying SO to the curb and become the only person to depend on.

5. "Irreplaceable"

This message was crystal clear that the one who doesn’t treat you right can be replaced and sent packing to the left as fast as you would swipe left on Tinder.

6. "Dangerously in Love 2"

This song was for all of us that ever Facebook-stalked our crush, lived on his every word and planned out our wedding to him.

7. "Daddy"

Beyoncé spoke for all of the collegiettes who are daddy’s girls and proud of it.

8. "Listen"

This beautifully-written song eclipses everything that some collegiettes feel whether it’s from overbearing parents or a boyfriend.

9. "Why Don’t You Love Me?"

The simplest question we have all asked to our crushes… or pretended to ask to them in the mirror…

10. "Flaws and All"

We all have flaws and imperfections that at the end of the day, make us who we are.

11. "Pretty Hurts"

This song further proves that women don’t need surgery to look good, but society needs to change for us to feel good.

12. "I Was Here"

We all want to make a positive impact on the world and be recognized for it.

13. "Love on Top"

How could we not identify with this song? Besides, she performed it so we could meet Blue Ivy!

14. "Run the World (Girls)"

It’s all in the title.

15. "***Flawless (feat. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie)" & "***Flawless Remix (feat. Nicki Minaj)"

Both versions help motivate us through that presentation or exam or paper or…

16. "Ego Remix (feat. Kanye West)"

This song might have a somewhat double entendre, but that doesn't take away the fact that we should all have a bit of ego.

17. "Best Thing I Never Had"

The song for when you realized that the one you thought was THE one was actually the WORST one.

18. "Grown Woman"

Collegiettes = grown women who can do whatever they want (with a little help from Mom & Dad).
