* ClusterFBomb: She began to move in this direction with ''Beyoncé'' and fully hit it on ''Lemonade''. Beyoncé says "fuck", "shit", "bitch", "[[NWordPrivileges nigga]]", "ass", "ho", "thot", "dick" and "balls", many times throughout the album, especially "fuck".

to:

* ClusterFBomb: She In earlier songs, those on B'Day and 4, she used "nigga(s)" in censored versions of "Irreplaceable" and "Run The World (Girls)". Later, she began to move in this direction with ''Beyoncé'' and fully hit it on ''Lemonade''. Beyoncé says "fuck", "shit", "bitch", "[[NWordPrivileges nigga]]", "ass", "ho", "thot", "dick" and "balls", many times throughout the album, especially "fuck".



* GenreShift: The song ''Diva'' was more hip-hop/rap orientated than her usual pop/R and B style. A further shift occurred with the albums "4" where she played around with classic R&B-esque songs and poppier, louder sounds. Even more so on her self-titled album "Beyoncé" with almost all of the songs. With Lemonade, Beyonce shifts through certain genres such as Southern Rap, Trap, and even Country Blues.

** During her perfomance at the 2016 Super Bowl, she visibly almost falls over but leaps right back and continues the choreography. No one even notices until it was brought up days later.
* LadyLand: She somewhat invoked this during her Super Bowl performance, with her dancers and backup band, (known as Suga Mamas, after a song on her album "B'Day") being solely female. She said she got the idea to do it during rehearsals... then had to delicately break it to the male members of her band.

Fans on Twitter who noticed the half-count of a mistake used this example to meme and further prove her greatness.

* LargeHam: Her choreography and on-stage persona are ''extremely'' flamboyant. With the songs "Diva" and "***Flawless", her self-confidence shines through.
* MelismaticVocals: This and her vibrato's make it easier to note her on the radio, as she's one of the only pop stars who can still do it consistently today, even after almost 20 years in the business.

* PrettyInMink: Has worn loads of furs on stage and in her vids, and even her promise to stop to please PETA was short-lived. "[[Music/KanyeWest Tell PETA my mink is dragging on the floor!]]".
* ProductPlacement: The version of "Get Me Bodied" on the Deluxe Edition of ''[=B-Day=]'' includes the line, "Shake your derriere in your [=Dereon=]," which is her mother's clothing line. In the lyrics of "Upgrade U": "Audermars Piget watch (Swiss watch company)... Cartier top clips..."
* {{Retraux}}: "Schoolin' Life" of the deluxe "4" album has a very 80's dance pop vibe. The song "Blow" from her eponymous album has an 80's vibe as well.

"Why Don't You Love Me" from the deluxe version of "I AM... Sasha Fierce". "Sandcastles" from "Lemonade" is reminiscent of Donny Hathaway's version of "A Song For You".



* UnlimitedWardrobe: Her video for "Party" has her wearing many different outfits. This applies to her concerts as well.

In 2013, she released a SelfTitledAlbum with a new SouthernRap sound and a video accompanying ''every'' song with zero promotion whatsoever, a nearly unprecedented move that caused the media and internet alike to collectively piss itself. Two years later on April 23, 2016, she dropped her sixth album ''Lemonade'', another rap album --- but this time, she promoted its release with a short film that premiered on Creator/{{HBO}}, giving only a week's notice ahead.

** Her segment for ''Hold Up'' from her visual special for Lemonade. It's a sunny day, people are smiling, kids are playing and Beyonce, dressed in a beautiful yellow couture gown, is skipping down the street and [[LyricalDissonance singing about feelings of denial regarding her cheating lover.]] Soon, she's smashing things with a bat and driving a monster truck down said street whilst things blow up in the background.

** Her Visual special to go with the release of Lemonade was more or less a celebration of black women, even going as far as to use snippets from a Malcolm X speech that talked about how the most disrespected person in America is the black woman, with cameos from Serena Williams, the mothers of Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown, Amandla Stenberg, Zendaya Coleman, Quvenzhane Wallis, and even her own daughter Blue Ivy.

**In the one hour visual special that came with Lemonade's release, Beyonce is seen singing ''Hold Up'' whilst smiling and skipping through the streets in a beautiful yellow gown until she takes a bat and proceeds to bust up everything in sight--cars, shop windows, fire hydrants, even the cameraman! [[TranquilFury All with a smile on her face.]] And that's only before she gets into the monster truck...uh-oh.

**''Sorry'' marked the beginning of her "Apathy" chapter in the Lemonade special and the song lyrics show Beyonce just really didn't give a damn, going as far as to tell her cheating lover to "suck on [her] balls" because "[she's] had enough".
