BeyoncГ© Giselle Knowles-Carter born September 4, 1981 is an American singer, songwriter, producer, and actress. The Recording Industry Association of America recognized BeyoncГ© as the Top Certified Artist in America, during the 2000s decade. Born and raised in Houston, Texas, BeyoncГ© performed in various singing and dancing competitions as a child. It's generally agreed that for a long time, there has been a double standard in Western societies, which allows men to be more openly and freely social and sexual than women. What's more, it becomes apparent later in the song that she isn't singing about being just any boy—she's actually addressing a particular boy who has broken her heart. In the context of the song, this line suggests that boys can do whatever they want and go wherever they want, and face no consequences for it.
