Beyonce is currently in the news due to her album “Lion King: The Gift” which featured various African acts including Wizkid, Burna Boy, Tiwa Savage, Yemi Alade, Tekno, and Shatta Wale.
She can now be considered an icon in the music industry. But her rise to success did not start today.
Over the years, Beyonce has been known for her incredible ability to catch everyone by surprise. When she has been out of the spotlight for a while and no one is expecting anything, she either comes in with a sensational album, a startling revelation or a stirring performance.
Here are 6 times Beyonce broke the Internet in grand style
The Super Bowl
Asides from Michael Jackson, no other artist has brought their A game at the Super Bowl like Beyonce did. While Coldplay was headlining the 2016 Super Bowl, Beyonce stole the show with her team of impressive dancers and a startling performance of “Formation”. At that moment, she was the centre of attention.
After giving a thrilling performance of “Love on Top” at the 2011 MTV VMA, Beyonce dropped her mike, unbuttoned her jacket, and rubbed her belly revealing a baby bump. That announcement garnered thousands of tweets per second on Twitter and even made it to the Guinness World Records. This moment is still meme-worthy till this day. She later went on to make headlines when she gave birth to Blue Ivy.
Without any prior notice or promotion whatsover, Beyonce dropped her sixth solo album, Lemonade, at midnight and had the world wondering who Becky with the good hair was.
After breaking Twitter records with her first pregnancy she went on to shake Instagram by announcing she was expecting twins and sharing this magnificent pregnancy photoshoot. A day later, the photoshoot had become the most liked video on Instagram of all time. Although, that record has since been broken by Kylie Jenner’s daughter Stormi.
In 2018, Beyonce headlined the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. Her iconic performance at the show had many singing her praises and is one that has been described as “historic”.
Earlier this year, she released a concert film titled “Homecoming”. The film, which premiered on Netflix, is based on her career and her 2018 Coachella performance. Within the first week of its release, Homecoming had over 757,000 interactions across social media.
