It’s Beyonce‘s 33rd Bey Day, everyone! Otherwise known as the perfect excuse not to go to work, or school (according to this particular genius), or any other personal obligations you planned on committing to today! So what better way to displace all the attention surrounding her maybe-fakelationship/marriage/association with Jay-Z or Blue Ivy‘s hair than by dancing and singing to all her unforgettable and timeless anthems in hopes that one day you’ll wake up like Beyonce, or at least a quarter of a Beyonce? Absolutely nothing!
So don’t worry about putting together that Bey Day playlist by yourself because I’ve got you covered right here with 21 songs by Queen Bey that you can surfboard to:
1. Dance For You
I know the choreography by heart, kid you not.
2. Smash Into You
Even though I find myself teetering between hers and Jon McLaughlin‘s original as for which I favor more, Beyonce wins simply for choosing it for I Am… Sasha Fierce in the first place.
3. Dangerously In Love
Still love, love, LOVEEE this song even to this day. It’s a classic!
4. Ring The Alarm
Hands down, one of the coolest vids and songs by the queen.
5. Pretty Hurts
Another clever pick from Beyonce, taking on this emotional ballad by the amazing Sia Furler which was initially penned for Katy Perry.
Between “Yonce” and “Flawless,” it’s pretty difficult for me to decide which is the best Beyonce song of all time.
This song brings me back to high school when that douche cheated on me in high school. Eff you, Marco DelRossi!
8. I Miss You
Thanks to Frank Ocean‘s talented pen game and her delicate vocals on this track, this song certainly deserved a spot on this list without question.
9. Drunk In Love (feat. Jay-Z)
Am I the only one waitlisted for Beyonce’s Surfboarding 101 course?
10. Ego (feat. Kanye West)
Because everyone totally remembers this one, and loved the remixed version even more!
11. Crazy In Love (feat. Jay-Z)
This playlist wouldn’t be complete without one of her most addictive songs ever.
12. Suga Mama
Simply couldn’t resist, and why should I?
13. Me, Myself And I
It’s totally okay being a single, independent and powerful woman because Beyonce says so.
14. Bow Down/I Been On
I’m literally on my knees…
Still not over the fact that this song didn’t get the radio play I wanted it to. What the eff!
16. No Angel
There’s no way you can listen to this song with clothes on, it’s that seductive!
My boss better hope I never wake up flawless tomorrow. Not kidding here.
18. Party (feat. J.Cole)
It’s ridiculous how many plays this one’s racked up on my iTunes.
19. Mine (feat. Drake)
I’ve already warned Nicki Minaj about touching my future husband, but Beyonce gets a pass because she’s Beyonce and I’m not, and I simply couldn’t handle another sting by the BeyHive
20. Zodiac (feat. Missy Elliot)
I’m going all the way back because it’s totally necessary and this song is unbelievably beautiful.
21. Flaws And All
Love the fact Beyonce can admit she’s not the epitome of perfection in this song, even though about a billion people around the world would disagree.
