During the hiatus of Destiny’s Child, Knowles released her debut solo album, Dangerously in Love, in 2003, which spawned two number-one singles on the Billboard Hot 100—”Crazy in Love” and “Baby Boy”—and became one of the most successful albums of that year, earning her a then record-tying five Grammy Awards. Following the disbandment of Destiny’s Child in 2005, Knowles released her second solo album, B’Day, in 2006, which spawned the top five singles “Déjà Vu”, “Irreplaceable” and “Beautiful Liar”. Her third solo album I Am… Sasha Fierce (2008), spawned the hit singles “If I Were a Boy”, “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)”, “Halo” and “Sweet Dreams”. The album helped Knowles earn six Grammys in 2010, breaking the record for most Grammy Awards won by a female artist in one night. Knowles’ fourth solo album, 4 (2011), became her fourth consecutive number one album on the Billboard 200 as a solo artist. This made her the third artist in the chart’s history to have her first four studio albums debut atop the chart.

Apart from her work in music, Knowles has also ventured into acting and designing clothes and various perfumes. Her performance in Dreamgirls(2006) earned her two Golden Globe nominations. Knowles introduced her family’s fashion line House of Deréon in 2005, and has endorsed such brands as L’Oréal, Pepsi, Tommy Hilfiger, Nintendo and Vizio. In April 2008, Knowles married American rapper Jay-Z. She gave birth to their first child a girl named Blue Ivy Carter, in January 7, 2012.
