Beyonce's Official Top 40 biggest songs in the UK revealed

It's time to get her singles in Formation.

Even in Destiny's Child, it was clear Beyonce was destined for solo global stardom. 

Since she first broke away from the group in 2002 with Work It Out, Queen Bey has landed 35 Top 40 singles on the Official UK Singles Chart, including five Number 1s. 

Across her 62 songs to land inside the UK Top 100, she's notched up 21.6 million chart sales, including a whopping 1.7 billion streams. But which tracks finish at the top of the pile? See Beyonce's Official Top 40 biggest songs in the UK at the bottom of the page, but first, some highlights...

03 Bonnie & Clyde 
Official Chart peak: 2
Chart sales: 267,000

The first of many collaborations with her husband Jay-Z, 03 Bonnie and Clyde was released as the lead single from Jay's seventh album The Blueprint 2: The Gift & The Curse. The track peaked at Number 2, earning Jay his third UK Top 10 and secured them as pop's hottest couple. 

Partition 
Official Chart peak: 74
Chart sales: 420,000

Despite missing the Top 40, this track from Beyonce's 2013 self-titled album remains a fan favourite. Co-written by the star with a host of famous names including Justin Timberlake and Timbaland, Bey channels her inner Prince on this sultry number that includes the now iconic line: "Driver roll up the partition, please..."

Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)
Official Chart peak: 7
Chart sales: 1.1 million

Proving the I Am... Sasha Fierce years really were as huge as you remember, the album's second release Single Ladies takes fourth place and is one of three songs in her all-time UK Top 5. A track that still has everyone thinking they're the sassiest thing in the room after a couple of cocktails, this party playlist staple has achieved 1.1 million chart sales since it first hit the Official Chart at Number 7 in 2009.

Halo

Since its release in 2008 it has become one of Beyonce's signature hits, often closing out her spectacular shows, sending everyone home on a feel-good note. The Ryan Tedder-produced song was caught in controversy at the time for its similarities to another made by Ryan, Kelly Clarkson's Already Gone (Kelly has since made light of it by mashing the songs together in some performances), but that hasn't stopped Halo racking up huge numbers.

The song topped out at Number 4 on the Official Singles Chart in 2009, and its enduring popularity has seen it notch up 1.5 million chart sales. It's her best-selling and most streamed track to date, with 125 million plays.
