Picking herself up after the disbandment of the group, she released her first solo album- Dangerously in love in 2003. This won five grammy awards the next year and was just a fragment of what was to come.

Since then, she has gone on to hold 23 Grammy awards. She is also is the first woman to win 6 Grammy awards in one night. Again in 2018, she became the first black woman to headline the Coachella music festival.

These albums have won her nine Grammy awards so far and the recognition of the richest female musician with a smashing $600 million to her name.
