Second studio album by American singer Beyoncé. It was released to coincide with her twenty-fifth birthday in September 2006 via Columbia Records, Music World Entertainment, and Sony Urban Music. The album was originally planned as a follow-up to Beyoncé's 2003 solo debut Dangerously in Love to be released in 2004; however, it was delayed to accommodate the recording of Destiny's Child's final album Destiny Fulfilled (2004) and the singer's starring role in the 2006 film Dreamgirls. While on vacation after filming, Beyoncé began contacting various producers and rented Sony Music Studios, completing B'Day in two weeks.
In addition to the album sitting on top of the Billboard 200 chart, her single "Irreplaceable" climbed up to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100. Other songs to chart include "Beautiful Liar," "Get Me Bodied," "Deja Vu," "Ring the Alarm," "Upgrade U," "Kitty Kat" and "Green Light." That is 7 out of 11 songs. Bey went on to win the 2006 Grammy for Best Contemporary R&B Album.
