Obviously, this is one influencer you have heard of. After all, she’s only been near the top of the music business since the late ‘90s. Besides her successful musical career, there are so many things that can be learned from this singer and actress. Let’s take a look at some of the lessons we can learn from her career and the way she’s taken charge.
And in case you didn’t know, you’ll get all the details about where to follow her on social media to get all the latest updates. Let’s start at the beginning…
Beyonce AccomplishmentsSo, we all know the story by now. Beyonce has been performing since she a little girl growing up in Texas, and eventually ended up being a part of the show Star Search. There, she performed alongside what would eventually become one of the biggest girl groups ever: Destiny’s Child.
Despite a lot of controversy about its ever-changing line-up and reasons behind that, the eventual trio would become even more successful and pave the way for Beyonce to not only further her musical career, but to expand into many areas. The now 36-year-old singer has definitely kept busy, so let’s see what we can learn from all of these endeavors.
Why is Beyonce FamousBeyonce is a good example of “no risk, no reward.” It was risky to go solo when she was the lead singer of a hugely popular trio, but it ended up paying off big time for the singer: According to Wiki, all of her solo albums have debuted at the top of the Billboard 200 chart. She’s also credited with being the first female artist to chart twelve songs at once on the Hot 100 chart by the site.
The discussions of her work, particularly Beyonce and Lemonade, show this even more. The site notes how these albums take risks lyrically by delving into darker and more personal subject matter. This is the kind of thing that resonates with audiences, because it’s real and authentic to the artist.
Another way that she took some risks in her music career is by foregoing the typical album release plan and surprise-releasing her work to the streaming service Tidal. Yes, she has an advantage in that she’s a known name, but it was still a risk to release material with absolutely no promo or lead single, as pretty much all the name acts were doing. This has also started a bit of a trend, with Eminem recently dropping an album with no warning as well.
Beyonce MoviesIt’s no secret by now that you’re rarely going to achieve huge success by just sticking to one thing, and Beyonce’s a good example of that. She’s ventured into acting as well as fashion. Check her website to see her activewear line, which is one of her more recent offerings. She also has had several big tours, guested on others’ recordings, and has done philanthropic work.
But the biggest move of her career, and something we can all learn from, was taking complete control and forming her company, Parkwood Entertainment. She can now have complete control over her music, her television content, and create parts for herself as an actress — no waiting for someone to cast her in a movie or hoping that someone created a great character to try out for. She’s starred in a couple of movies already as part of the company: Cadillac Records and Obessed. She even has created an album with her husband, Jay-Z, through the company and his RocNation.
