The BeyHive is all abuzz today because their favorite star turns 34! In just three decades on Earth, Beyoncé has worked her way straight to the top, becoming one of the biggest–and most loved–celebs in the world.

Beyoncé’s fierce dance moves, girl-powered anthems, syrupy sweet smile, and elusive relationship with the media has elevated this Houston girl to the top of her industry. And while Bey continues to churn out hits that dominate radios around the world, we still love Beyoncé’s older work too.

So in honor of #BeyDay, here are 7 of Yoncé’s throwback songs that still go supremely HARD.

#1 Crazy In Love

Of course this makes our list, it was Bey’s first solo single and EVERYBODY (and their mama) was doing that dance.

#2 Diva

Every woman needs a badass theme song. Bey has many, but this one still remains one of our favs.

#3 Baby Boy

Whenever this comes on you can’t help but wine up your hips! Yeah, yeah yeah, yeeeaaaaaah!

#4 Naughty Girl

LISTEN! This song right here? Put this on and dance yourself silly (while also feeling good about yourself!)

#5 Freakum Dress

The drums, the ode to Go-Go music, the hype beat…all things that make this song perfect for getting ready for a night out with your girls.

#6 Upgrade You

We love slightly hood Beyoncé, don’t you?

#7 Get Me Bodied

I mean…First Lady Michelle Obama loves it, why wouldn’t we?

  • ronnieTX

    I’m not even going to lie….I love her.

  • Beyonce’s song called Radio is a great tune including the tune I Care.

    Irreplaceable, I was here, dance for you and I actually prefer The 50 shades of Grey version of crazy in love. These are just a few favorite tunes from Beyoncé.

    • Also,

      Happy Birthday to Beyonce.

      I have to APOLOGIZE in advance for whatever this is on my part.

      I like/dislike Beyonce’s “Irreplaceable”, but I was unclear about my ambivalence until now. The tone of the song is: WE are in a monogamous, committed relationship and since you are behaving otherwise, then Exit Stage Left–Get to steppin’ out of my life quickly and quietly with no muss, no fuss–LUV It!

      The song lyrics are Art Imitating Life; so, therein lies what I also dislike about “Irreplaceable”. Both Women and Men who claim to be “gifting” in their relationships are merely “LENDING” as long as both parties are on good terms. ‘Cause if he/she is “gifting” cars, jewelry, clothes, then when the soon to be “ex” leaves shouldn’t she/he be allowed to take those “gifts” with her/him. That’s why I’m Pro “#Team-Buy-YOUR-Own-STUFF” (LOL) so that if it comes to leaving you don’t have to leave “naked”/homeless ‘cauze he/she “bought”/paid for/own/control it ALL.

      Also, if the problem is him (his behavior) then after getting RID of Him, she should NEVER EVER have another HIM let alone, “another him in a minute”.
