Beyoncé Turns 10

First off: Please do not get cute about the title of this blog post. The very famous singer Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter celebrated her 10th birthday in September 1991, around the same time that she joined the hip-hop rappin’ Girl’s Tyme. She is now 42 years old. She is not turning 10. But the album known as Beyoncé — the fifth solo Beyoncé full-length, the one that changed all notions of how an A-list pop record could work — came out 10 years ago today. It’s been a decade since the sudden midnight announcement that a new Beyoncé album was available for purchase. It feels like it’s been longer.
