Believe it or not, for us twenty-something-year olds, Beyoncé has been in our life for more than half of it. When Destiny’s Child dropped their first album in 1998, I was 10. I remember sitting in orchestra class, the day after The Writings on The Wall came out, and having a debate with a group of girls on why Beyoncé was the only one that ever sang lead. “Uh… cuz her mama is the designer and her daddy is their manager, why do you think she only sings lead?” I said. (Yes, I’ve been this snarky for a looooong time, believe it or not).
