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)"

Is Meaningful Casual Sex A Paradox?

Why noncommittal sex is more complicated than we'd like to think.


I lost my virginity to a graduate student from Los Angeles. We’d met at a rundown cafe whose Yelp page complained of an alleged rat infestation. His name was Ken and he was 25. What drew me to him was the peculiar way his mouth was perpetually fixed into a sideways, half-moon shape that was like a smirk but without any trace of smugness. But the two most striking parts of Ken by far were the dinner plate roundness of his face and his small, expressionless teddy bear eyes. Of the things that mattered to him, there was his best friend, a college dropout who sold computer parts in Toronto, and sex.

The Blessing of Lacking Sex Appeal

To all the fellow non "it" girls out there


Lacking sex appeal is not a desirable thing. It makes you fee not ugly, but wrong. Not having charisma is not a life goal. It doesn't make you fee friendless, but isolated. Not being the "it" girl happens, and tonight (and every nigh prior to this)

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

It is truly the worst place to be

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

Look. If you are anything like me, complaining about being single is such a hard thing to because you are genuinely happy for your friends, but as they continue to be happy in their relationships, the ever crushing weight of being the single friends can become overwhelming. For context, my primary friend group consists of four people. We are all roommates and it is a great time here. All three of my roommates have boyfriends/girlfriends, which makes our friend group of four quickly jump to seven, and it is wonderful! I love my roommates so much and I love their S.O's, but no matter how much I love them I always get extremely jealous and sad. The sad thing is that the only part that ever truly ends up bugging me is that since I am single, they are my go-to top priorities and it has been really hard to watch myself slip from the top of their go-to's to not being their go to when they feel the weight of the world. What makes it harder is that expressing that I feel alone and unwanted makes me sound jealous and like I don't want my friends to hangout with their people. I get it. I do. But there are just days I want to be someone's first pick and I'm not.
