Beyoncé is a consummate professional, one of the top artists of the noughties. While other female singers became enveloped by scandals and drama, she remained above the fray. Sassy, sultry and sexy, she lights up the stage with her powerful presence and voice. I’m surprised it took me this long to discover Love on Top, a joyous throwback to the retro-soul era. I challenge you to listen to this infectious song and not have your body sway to the music. WIth each key change the song builds and swells, absolutely glorious.
For Aussie readers, check out this standout performance by Diana Rouvas, a contestant on The Voice. Props to Keith Urban for the savvy choice of song.
