With “Dangerously In Love” the world was introduced to a new kind of pop star, a woman who was ready to take the world by storm while creating music that everyone could enjoy, not just teenagers. Beyonce explained that the thing that made her so popular was her consistent songwriting. She told Rolling Stone:
This is not something anybody planned for me. I had the help of my family, I don’t do it all by myself, but I write my songs, I write my treatments, I help with my clothes. Anybody who, every time they’re seen they’re right — it’s not other people. You can’t be that consistent without the artist being involved.
