A week after announcing her pregnancy on the black carpet and on stage at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards, Beyonce celebrates her 30th birthday.

So far, she has managed to accomplish what others never get to do in a lifetime.

Since her debut Destiny’s Child 14 years ago, the Single Ladies singer is ready to enjoy her first pregnancy with hubby rapper Jay-Z.

After four popular solo albums and a successful stint in films, Beyonce has become one of the most powerful musicians in the world.

Beyonce’s latest album 4 was released this year in June. The songs on the record are mostly a R&B and pop tracks, with an influence of the late 1970s and early 1980s R&B and soul music.
