Beyoncé's most iconic anthem: 'Crazy in Love' or 'Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)'?
While Bey had released solo material before 2003, "Crazy in Love" is where it all started. It's her first solo #1 pop hit on the Billboard Hot 100. The song blew up in the summer of 2003, and so did Bey as a solo artist with her "uh oh" dance. The song is regarded as the definitive summer smash of 2003, and one of the biggest songs of the 2000s. The smash also won Best R&B Song and Best Rap/Sung Collaboration at the Grammys in 2004.
