Today marks the 31st birthday of a true icon. That’s right, 31 years ago today in Houston, Texas, the powerful force we’ve come to know and love as Beyoncé Knowles was born to her parents Matthew and Tina. It wasn’t long before she was in the spotlight as the star of legendary girl group Destiny’s Child. As many of the members came and went, Bey stayed on top.
From her solo career through her marriage to Jay-Z to the Blue Ivy phenomenon and beyond — we’ve been fans through it all.
In honor of this fabulous occasion, we’ve compiled a gallery of her ten best music videos above. Click through and relive your favorite of Queen Bey’s moments. Which one is your favorite?
Beyonce's "Diva" video showed that Lady Gaga wasn't the only pop star who could turn out a killer video.
Who doesn't remember the Manolo Blahnik Timbs Lady B wore in the "'03 Bonnie & Clyde" video with her beau Jay-Z?
Perhaps one of Bey's most underrated gems, the "If I Were A Boy" video is an intelligent social commentary.
The "Crazy in Love" video proclaimed her love for Hova.
The "Bug A Boo" video is classic, especially all the outdated references (AOL, MCI, etc.).
The world was indeed ready for Beyonce, Michelle and Kelly's "jellies" in the "Bootylicious" video.
Destiny's Child asked a question we've all had to ask: can you pay my bills, can you pay my automo' bills, if you did than maybe we could chill. The "Bills, Bills, Bills" video told it like it is.
In the "Why Don't You Love Me?" video, Bey plays a jilted housewife at her most glam.
The "Single Ladies" video was good enough for Kanye West to interrupt Taylor Swift's acceptance speech at the VMAs back in 2009.
Who hasn't fist-pumped or worked out to Destiny's Child's anthem "Survivor"?
