5 Underrated Beyoncé Songs

In recent days, the Grammy nominations for the 59th Annual Grammy Awards (2017) were released to the public. Along with nominees such as Adele and Kanye West, Beyoncé is the top-dog holder for this year's Grammy nominations. Bey’s nine nominations, yes NINE, include Album of the Year, Best Music Film, and Best Rock Performance. You read that right. Beyoncé, who is seen by many as the queen of pop music, is nominated for her rock-inspired song "Don't Hurt Yourself" featuring Jack White. With 20 Grammy wins and an all-together 62 Grammy nominations, Beyoncé is the most Grammy-nominated female in history. Now that is impressive.

Even with all those Grammy nominations, many of Beyoncé’s best songs (maybe I’m being biased) have fallen through the fingertips of the general Top 40 pop music listeners. Everyone has heard “Crazy In Love” with her husband Jay-Z, and the wedding-popular tune “Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It”. But, these five following songs are, to me, some of Beyoncé’s most underrated songs:

5. Mine (feat. Drake) - "Beyoncé"

"Stop making a big deal out of the little things,
'Cause I got big deals and I got little things
I got everything I'm asking for but you...
Stop making a big deal out of the little things,
Let's get carried away..."

4. Poison - "I Am ... Sasha Fierce (Deluxe Version)"

"You're just like poison
And I just don't get it
How could something so deadly feel so right?"

3. Grown Woman - "Beyoncé

"I'm a grown woman
I can do whatever I want"

2. Schoolin' Life - "4"

"Mom and dad, tried hide the world
Said the world is just too big for a little girl
Eyes wide open, came to see

I had my first heels by the age of 13"

1. Smash Into You - "I Am ... Sasha Fierce (Deluxe Version)"

"Head down
As I watch my feet take turns hitting the ground
Eyes shut
I find myself in love racing the Earth
And I'm soaked in your love
And love was right in my path, in my grasp
And me and you belong"

Honorable Mentions:

Ring the Alarm - "B'day"

All Night - "Lemonade"

Ring Off - "Beyonce (Platinum Edition)"

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
