Singer Beyonce Knowles has opened about her life and the way 2020 has “absolutely changed” her.

“It would be difficult to experience life in a pandemic and the current social unrest and not be changed. I have learnt that my voice is clearer when I am still,” she said in an interview with British Vogue.

“I truly cherish this time with my family, and my new goal is to slow down and shed stressful things from my life. I came into the music industry at 15 years old and grew up with the world watching, and I have put out projects non-stop,” the 39-year-old superstar added.

She recalled her “back-to-back” projects over the last four years, starting with her 2016 album ‘Lemonade’ and ending with her 2020 visual album ‘Black Is King’.

“I released ‘Lemonade’ during the Formation World Tour, gave birth to twins, performed at Coachella, directed ‘Homecoming’, went on another world tour with Jay, then ‘Black Is King’, all back-to-back. It’s been heavy and hectic,” she said.

“I’ve spent a lot of time focusing on building my legacy and representing my culture the best way I know how. Now, I’ve decided to give myself permission to focus on my joy,” she added.
