However, after rating her entire discography and seeing how far she has come since 2003, Naughty Girl, to put it simply, feels like a simply cute moment. It was the first song Beyoncé recorded for her debut and was possibly going to be the lead single until they eventually went with Crazy In Love. Naughty Girl’s Love To Love You Baby sample by the legendary Donna Summer is used extremely effectively here, giving it that instant familiarity and timeless edge. She would sample Summer again later on in her career with SUMMER RENAISSANCE. With added Middle Eastern flair in the production, a sultry bassline and some risqué vocal delivery throughout, the song delivers as a sexy slice of pop. We know Beyoncé would go on to truly explore her sensuality on later albums, but the beginnings were all here. Naughty Girl was another hit for Beyoncé, going on to peak in multiple Top 10’s around the world, which is not bad for a fourth single. Additionally, it currently has just over 120 million streams on Spotify and has garnered around 2 million sales since its release. The video became a staple on music channels in 2004 and like with many videos of that era, has a certain simplicity about it that makes me nostalgic for the early 00s. It’s a fun concept with some good choreography and having Beyoncé sitting in a large champagne glass... it just works. Also, famous 00s artist Usher makes a guest appearance here as Beyoncé’s dance partner. The video went on to win Best Female Video at the 2014 VMAs, moving her tally at the time up to 3 VMAs for the one album. Naughty Girl has been performed countless times on countless tours, it even got its own interlude and performance on The Mrs Carter World Tour, which was around 10 years after its release. Her most recent performance of it was on The Formation World Tour where she perfectly transitions from Bootylicious to Naughty Girl to Party. Watch below!
