Beyoncé and I go way back. The Writing’s on the Wall Destiny’s Child album was one of my first Big Girl CDs in the early aughts, and I have been listening to and following Beyoncé in some capacity ever since.

I remember how, for a while, it was implied that her image and music were products of a larger pop machine that was devoid of any of her input. I also remember believing some of this back in the day — and, honestly, it may have been a little true. To establish and maintain a career as far-reaching and awe-inspiring as hers often takes the efforts of many different people. In recent years, though, it’s become clear how her music is hers and is just as unique, personal, and creative as anyone else’s (if not more so, but I don’t want to be too much of a stan, so I digress).

Though we’ve just been graced with her latest era, which some have dubbed the Yeehaw/Beyhaw era, it feels like her strongest and most magnificent yet. I do not exaggerate when I say that the album Cowboy Carter is the best one she’s ever released and one of the most creative albums I’ve heard from a star of her caliber in a while.

It takes listeners through her life and looks at the various experiences that come from being a Black woman musician from the American South. She hops from genre to genre — country, ’60s/’70s pop and rock, opera, and more — as she explores discrimination, love, motherhood, and Black Americans’ various contributions to music and culture. It honestly is amazing, and I recommend you give it a listen, even if you aren’t a Bey fan normally.

Now, if you are like me, and already are a fan of Bey’s and a reader, then these bookish Beyoncé items below will give you absolute life.
