Overview -

Who runs the world? The Beyhive knows. From the Destiny's Child 2001 hit single Survivor to her 2019 jam 7/11, Beyonc Knowles-Carter has confronted dominant issues around the world. Because her image is linked with debates on race, sexuality, and female empowerment, she has become a central figure in pop music and pop culture.

Contributors look at Beyonc 's entire body of work to examine her status as a canonical figure in modern music and do not shy away from questioning scandals or weighing her social contributions against the evolution of feminism, critical race theory, authenticity, and more. Full of examples from throughout Beyonc 's career, this volume presents listening as a political undertaking that generates meaning and creates community. Beyonc At Work, On Screen, and Online contends that because of her willingness to address societal issues within her career, Beyonc has become an important touchstone for an entire generation--all in a day's work for Queen Bey.
