Beyonce, 34, has been a member of R&B royalty for nearly twenty years -- ever since Destiny’s Child released its self-titled debut album in 1998.

She has become more of of an experimentalist in recent years. But even before she edged nearer to R&B’s sonic frontier, she was eager to take risks and place her explosive, physical, sexual vocal delivery in unfamiliar environments.

This week in #TBT, we revisit Beyonce’s early singles: three from 2006’s B’day, three from 2003’s Dangerously in Love, and four of Destiny’s Child’s biggest hits. Check out the Spotify playlist below and click through the galleries to watch the videos (we advise the latter).
