Beyoncé Giselle Knowles

After Williams and Rowland released their solo efforts, Knowles released her début solo album Dangerously in Love in June 2003. The album debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart, with first-week sales of 317,000 copies sold. It was certified four times platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). Dangerously in Love has sold over 4.6 million copies in the United States, and 11 million copies worldwide. It remains as Knowles' best-selling album to date. The album's lead single "Crazy in Love", featuring Jay-Z, spent eight consecutive weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot 100. The album's second single "Baby Boy", featuring dancehall singer Sean Paul, spent nine consecutive weeks at number one. The album's third single "Me, Myself and I", peaked at number four on the Billboard Hot 100, while "Naughty Girl", the fourth single, peaked at number three, and became Knowles' fourth consecutive top-five release from Dangerously in Love, and her fifth top-five hit as a solo artist. The album led Knowles to win a then record-tying five awards at the 46th Grammy Awards for Best Contemporary R&B Album, Best Female R&B Vocal Performance for "Dangerously in Love 2", Best R&B Song, Best Rap/Sung Collaboration and Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals. In November 2003, Knowles embarked on her Dangerously in Love Tour in Europe.
In March 2004, Knowles joined Alicia Keys, Missy Elliott and Tamia for the Verizon Ladies First Tour in North America. Knowles had originally planned to release a follow-up to Dangerously in Love in March 2004, which would feature some of the left-over recordings from the album. However, Knowles decided to put the album on hold in order to concentrate on the next Destiny's Child album. After a three-year journey that involved concentration on individual solo projects, Knowles rejoined Rowland and Williams to release their fourth and final album Destiny Fulfilled in November 2004. The album peaked at number two on the Billboard 200 chart. It was certified three times platinum by the RIAA. Destiny Fulfilled has sold over 3.1 million copies in the United States. The album spawned the hit singles "Lose My Breath", "Soldier" and "Cater 2 U". In April 2005, Destiny's Child embarked on their Destiny Fulfilled ... And Lovin' It tour, which ended in September of that year. During the last stop of their European leg of the tour in Barcelona, Spain, Rowland announced that Destiny's Child would disband following the North American leg of the tour.
A compilation album titled Number 1's, featuring the group's number-one hits and most well-known songs, was released in October 2005. The album debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 and was certified platinum by the RIAA. Knowles' single "Check on It", featuring rapper Slim Thug, was released from the album in December 2005. The song spent five consecutive weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot 100, and became Knowles' third Hot 100 number-one as a solo artist and Slim Thug's first Hot 100 single. In March 2006, Destiny's Child reunited to accept a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
