“Know where you was when that digital popped/I stopped the world,” said Queen Beyonce on her new collabo with Nicki Minaj and let’s face it, she’s correct.

We all remember the time BB dropped her fifth studio album in the dead of a Friday night and sold millions of copies before the weekend was over.

Though Beyoncé has been out for a year already, the world-renowned entertainer has not slowed down a bit. In honor of one of the boldest moves in the history of music, it’s only right that we commemorate all of the Queen’s accomplishments in the past year.

1. The Mrs. Carter World Tour 

Though she was already in the middle of her world tour when the album dropped, the 137 performances earned Blue Ivy‘s mama a whopping $229.7 million, making the tour one of the highest grossing of the year.

2. Time Magazine’s Most Influential Person

Once Bey stopped the internet, there was no stopping her reign. She topped TIME magazine’s list of 100 most influential people.

3. Charitable Bey

It’s no secret the singer also doubles a philanthropist. At the 2nd annual Chime for Change event, Beyoncé donated $500,000 to the charity.

4. On The Run Tour

A couple that slays together, stays together. The Queen of Pop went On the Run with her hubby Jay Z for the first time and even made it a family affair with Blue Blue coming along for the ride.

5. Recipient of the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award

For her incredible album and overall work through the years, Bey received the 2014 Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at the VMAs, where she also delivered a wig-snatching performance of her entire album.

6. Most Grammy-Nominated Woman in History

Nominations for the 57th Annual Grammy Awards were recently announced and Beyoncé became the most nominated woman in the history of the ceremony. With a staggering 47 nominations during the course of her career, she was previously tied with country goddess Dolly Parton, who has 46 nominations.

7. Beyoncé: The Platinum Edition

Close to the one-year anniversary of Beyoncé, the singer released a platinum version of her album, which featured two new songs. Given that the original album was a surprise, it was only right that she drop a surprise video for “7/11” as well.

8. A Class All Unto Herself

Beyoncé was such a hit that Harvard Business school decided to do a case study on how she was able to pull off the surprise release.

9. Meeting the Duke & Duchess of Cambridge

When you are music royalty like Beyoncé, you get to do fancy things such as meeting the future King and Queen of England. The songstress, along with her hubby, recently greeted Prince William and Kate Middleton during a Nets game at Barclays Center.

10. Renewal of Vows

Bey’s personal life seems to be going just as smoothly as her professional life. After months of pesky divorce rumors, the singer and her longtime love renewed their wedding vows–in a super secret ceremony (duh).
