A lot of controversy has been surrounding Beyoncé’s Lemonade and the current status of her relationship with hubby Jay Z. That may not be such a bad thing seeing as though Beyoncé has become the first artist to be No. 1 on the Billboard charts with her first six albums. You see, her latest visual album isn't the first time Beyoncé has found success in appealing to the universality of love and heartbreak. As a matter of fact, she's sort of given us the anthems that have helped us grieve breakups for years now. Turn up your speakers and allow throwback Beyoncé to help you mend your broken heart.
1. Me, Myself and I
The empowering song is one of Beyoncé’s deepest as a solo singer. This track was released over a decade ago, even though it still resonates with listeners today. Me, myself and I talks about falling in love with a man that took advantage of that love. In the end you realize you can only truly depend on yourself.
2. Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)
Even if you didn't purchase I Am… Sasha Fierce back in 2008―another one of Beyoncé's solo album after the Destiny’s Child split―there's no way you didn't hear Single Ladies. It was everywhere. The choreography went viral and could not be avoided. It became the go-to track to celebrate singledom, especially when someone you cared about didn't lock in the relationship and later regrets it. There's nothing wrong with being single, Beyoncé says so.
3. If I Were A Boy
This is the track where Beyoncé switches up the roles. A guy might not like how it feels to be on the receiving end of his actions. If I Were a Boy also comes from I Am… Sasha Fierce, and is perhaps one of the most relatable tracks on the album.
In 2006, Beyoncé released yet another solo album titled B’Day. That's when fans became obsessed with Irreplaceable, a song written by Ne-Yo, that soon became a “No. 1 Billboard hit.” The track is a reminder to women that no one person is irreplaceable.
5. Girl - Destiny’s Child
During 2004, Destiny’s Child released the very relatable song Girl. In it a group of friends talk to one of their girls about wanting her to stop suffering from the relationship she's in. It's tough to toe the line of wanting to be a good friend but also minding your own business.
