About Beyoncé

All hail the Queen. Already one of the biggest names on the planet, Beyonce’s reign reached new heights in 2019 thanks to projects like her Netflix-partnered concert documentary Homecoming and her labor-of-love Lion King revamp, for which she produced and curated a coordinating album, self-described as a "love letter to Africa." With 138M+ Instagram followers and 15M+ more in Twitter, it’s easy to see why her popularity led her to replace The Queen of England in Madame Tussauds' wax museum. Why? Because she’s music royalty and continues to outdo herself in ways that make heads turn all across the globe.
