Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter (born September 4, 1981) is an American singer, songwriter, record producer and actress. Born and raised in Houston, Texas, she performed in various singing and dancing competitions as a child, and rose to fame in the late 1990s as lead singer of R&B girl-group Destiny’s Child. Managed by her father, Mathew Knowles, the group became one of the world’s best-selling girl groups of all time. Their hiatus saw the release of Beyoncé’s debut album, Dangerously in Love (2003), which established her as a solo artist worldwide, earned five Grammy Awards and featured the Billboard Hot 100 number-one singles “Crazy in Love” and “Baby Boy“.
On Friday, February 6, 2016, Beyoncé released a new single exclusively on the music streaming platform Tidal called “Formation“. The song was made available to download for free. She performed the new single live for the first time during the Super Bowl 50 halftime show. Immediately following the announcement, Beyoncé announced The Formation World Tour, which highlighted stops in both North America, and Europe. While few details are known about Beyoncé’s upcoming sixth studio album, there is speculation of a release in 2016, with one member of Beyoncé’s team confirming he had heard it. Unconfirmed collaborators include Boots, Future, Bone Thugs-n-Harmony and Sia.
