Beyonce Reveals Her Top 10 Songs of 2011
Beyonce has unveiled a list of her 10 favorite songs of 2011 on her website. The list gives plenty of love to female singers and hip-hop artists. Though many critics have Beyonce's 'Countdown' on their year-end lists, Bey went the modest route and did not choose any of her own songs.
Beyonce didn't rank the songs from 1-10, so we don't know which track was her absolute favorite. But we'd suspect that 'N----s in Paris,' by her hubby Jay-Z with Kanye West, would have to rank highly. The same is probably true of 'Motivation,' by her former Destiny's Child bandmate Kelly Rowland.
No legitimate "best of 2011" list could exclude Adele, and Beyonce includes the British singer's ballad 'Someone Like You.' As for surprises, she includes the Justin Bieber and Chris Brown version of 'Look At Me Now,' as well as tracks by acclaimed but lesser-known acts Future and James Blake.
Take a look at the complete list of Beyonce's faves below. Do you agree with her choices of the Top 10 songs of 2011?
