EDITORS’ NOTES

Having found huge success as part of Destiny's Child, Beyoncé Knowles was astonishingly the last of the group to release a solo album. The waiting paid off with Dangerously in Love earning her critical acclaim and massive album sales. Opener "Crazy in Love" sets the tone, its infectious rhythm and inventive production remains a benchmark of intelligent pop production. Appearances by partner Jay Z, Missy Elliott and Sean Paul are some of the highlights—but it's Beyoncé’s move into songwriting and production that make this vital debut.
