9 Beyonce Songs For Every Parenting Situation


It's no secret that Beyoncé is the queen of, well, just about everything. So it should come as no surprise that over the years, she's provided a soundtrack to your life. From heartbreak, to independence anthems, to dance party tunes that keep you dancing 'til dawn, it seems there's nothing Beyoncé doesn't have a song for. Including parenting. Yes, Beyoncé's songs can help you through raising your children. There are Beyoncé songs for every parenting situation, if you listen close enough.

If I've learned anything about Beyoncé over the past week, it's that the woman can do literally anything. From topping the charts to dropping Lemonade-flavored intrigue on the world, she seems able to take any curve ball that comes her way and come out on top, all while raising a child and keeping her marriage afloat. There's a reason she's referred to as Queen Bey. Not just because you love her, but because she's a mother too. And nobody knows quite how to take lemons and turn them into lemonade like a mother, now do they? The next time you're in need of a little bit of musical parenting inspiration, look no further. Queen Bey's got you covered.
