Super Bowl XLVII: Beyonce Mix

Illustration by Julia Rothman

After throwing our own D*S version of a Super Bowl party last week, we decided to celebrate the big game in one more way that felt right to us: with a Beyoncé mix! Amy and I are big Beyoncé fans, and Max is an even bigger Beyoncé appreciator, so we thought it would be fun to round up our favorite Beyoncé tracks to get ready for this weekend’s big halftime show. Lip-Sync Gate or not, she’s one heck of a performer, and her music never fails to get us through a tough work day — or make us stop for an impromptu dance party. We’ve chosen our favorites in the mix below but please feel free to list or link to your favorite Beyoncé tracks in the comment section below. As much as I’m excited for the over-the-top commercials, I’ll really be looking forward to what this talented lady is singing (and wearing). xo, grace
