Beyonce is a Mezzo-Soprano singer with a huge range and a lot of different vocal style abilities. While she mainly sings R&B and pop, Beyonce has been known to sing in styles that include opera, country, gospel, and more.
A typical mezzo-soprano can sing from G3 to A5, but Beyonce reaches further on the lower and higher ends. She's been recorded singing in the studio from B2 to E6 with live performances that may stretch even further.
Beyonce's voice spans a little less than 4 octaves, which is extremely impressive for any singer. Her high whistle tones are on par with greats, including Mariah Carey and Ariana Grande.
Beyonce has a surprisingly low and full voice for a soprano. She often showcases her lowest notes on verses and harmony notes sung in the background for her songs.
One of her lowest notes, B2, can be found in the "Feeling Myself" track at the timestamp highlighted in the video below.
Beyonce can belt with the best of them and reach some crazy high notes with her whistle tone.
For belted high notes, she's sung as high as an E in a full chest voice (belting voice), with an example being the key changes toward the end and not including the head voice/whistle tone notes.
Beyonce's whistle ton can be heard going as high as E6 as heard on one of her throwback tracks with Destiny's Child's song "Happy Face" which can be heard in the clip and the timestamp highlighted below.
Again, some of her live performances may have gone beyond this note.
Beyonce's range hasn't changed much, and she can still hit some great lower and higher notes like she could over a decade ago.
Her overall tone has become fuller over the years, which is common for female singers who started early. When singing with Destiny's Child in her teen years, Beyonce had more of a light and airy tone.
As her career progressed, she added more edge, thickness, and depth to her tone and has been known to sing aggressively. Despite her fuller voice, Beyonce is still quite capable of whispering and soft tones in her singing and light and airy high notes.
