     If you're tired of the bootylicious babble that Destiny's Child has inspired, you may want to try the new solo effort from multi-platinum recording artist Beyonce Knowles. "Dangerously in Love" blends influences from hip-hop to rock and jazz. It's also divided between seductive tempos ("Be With You"), lush ballads ("Dangerously in Love," "Signs" and "Say Yes") and fiery club bangers ("How I Like It," and "Baby Boy").

Knowles, who co-wrote and co-produced much of the album, is also accompanied by many artists including Missy Elliot, Sean Paul, Luther Vandross, Big Boi (OutKast), and boyfriend Jay-Z. With this album, Knowles also has released a deeply passionate, sexually aggressive and more mature vibe.

The first single, "Crazy in Love," features Jay-Z. Co-produced with Rich Harrison, it was the song of the summer. This is no schoolgirl's fantasy of blossoming love - "Dangerously in Love" is clearly Knowles' way of staking her claim in the world and in the process redefines the expectations of who she is.

Beyonce Knowles is surely a triple threat, who's added songwriter and producer to her resumé. I can't wait to see what else this entertainer has up her sleeve!

Beyonce is a great singer and I may not have met her...... yet,  but she seems pretty awesome. I think that there should be more people out there like her that inspire people the way she inspired me. I love you Beyonce! <3

It's not about success; it's about significance.

No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.

I'm not familiar with Beyonce's music, like, at all (though I've always intended to check into it), but she is one gorgeous woman. :)
