Today, Aug. 4, is Beyonce’s birthday.

Beyonce Knowles, full name Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter, turns 37 years old today and has packed in one of the most impressive careers in the modern entertainment industry.

Beyoncé is known for her roles in blockbuster movies, including “Dream Girls,” and “Austin Powers In Goldmember,” but she got her start — and acquired mammoth success — in the music industry.

Knowles, a Houston, Texas native, started out a member of the girl group Destiny’s Child. Beyonce was just nine years old, but the group quickly rose to popularity and raked in three Grammy awards and 14 nominations. When Beyonce left to become a breakout single artist, she catapulted into fame with her breakout single “Crazy in Love,” featuring Jay Z.

From there, she released hit after hit, including “Halo,” “Drunk In Love,” “Love On Top,” “Run The World,” and dozens more. To date, she’s won 22 Grammy awards and remains the most nominated female artist in history.

With over 113 million followers, she’s pretty popular on Instagram, too. Check out some of her most iconic posts below.
