Beyoncé Knowles-Carter is known as being just about everyone's favourite woman – not least because of her talent within the music industry, as well as being a keen philanthropist, she is also widely known for using her platform to champion change.

She rose to fame in the early Nineties as the lead singer in one of the most memorable girl bands of all time – Destiny’s Child. Their self-named debut album, released in 1998, altered what it meant to be a female artist in modern R&B.

Today, her career is full of record-breaking feats – notably, she's the first artist to have her first six albums debut at number one, and the most-nominated woman in Grammy history – and she's often lauded as one of the greatest performers of our generation.

Beyoncé's latest visual album, Black is King, serves as a companion to her audio album The Lion King: The Gift, the soundtrack to the 2019 re-make of The Lion King. It's a breathtaking ode to black people and embodies images of black regality in a remarkable, affirming way. It truly is Beyoncé at her best.

Her raw talent and diligent work ethic, as well as her body positivity and dedication to politics, feminism, girls' education, and the empowerment of black lives, mean that Beyoncé truly is in a league of her own.

We've lost count of the number of gifts Beyoncé has given us over the years, so with the 4 September marking her birthday, we've rounded up our favourite Bey-inspired buys any fan will love. We are "Crazy in Love" with them.

You can trust our independent round-ups. We may earn commission from some of the retailers, but we never allow this to influence selections. This revenue helps us to fund journalism across The Independent.

Urban Outfitters Beyonce: Lemonade 2XLP LP: £25, Urban Outfitters

While streaming music digitally is undeniably useful, there's nothing quite like owning a record from your favourite artist. We love the idea of having Beyoncé's entire collection on vinyl. Spread over two discs, we'll be playing this loud in honour of Bey's bday. If you need a record player, we'd suggest the Digitnow Bluetooth record player (Amazon, £129.99).

To show your true appreciation and membership to the Beyhive, this is the T-shirt you need. Made from 100 per cent cotton, it's kind on the skin. But, it does run small, so size up. Wear on Beyoncé's birthday and beyond.
