This Week in History

What were you doing this time four years ago? We were kicking it with Beyonce and Robin Thicke when The Beyonce Experience tour stopped at Philips Arena on July 20, 2007. This tour was in support of Beyonce's second solo album, B'Day. She opened the sold out show with "Crazy in Love" and performed favorites such as "Naughty Girl," "Dangerously in Love," and "Irreplaceable."

Beyonce released her first solo album in 2003 and earned five Grammy Awards. Since her debut, she has continued producing record-breaking albums and has established herself as one of the most influential celebrities in the world.
