Sexy superstar Beyonce Knowles is convinced her success in music is simply down to sheer toil - claiming she's the "hardest worker" in pop.

The CRAZY IN LOVE singer is not shy when admitting it took unrivalled determination to succeed with girl group Destiny's Child and subsequently as a chart-topping solo artist.

The 21-year-old says, "Adults, kids, whatever. I haven't seen anyone work as hard as me.

"I've worked harder than anybody I've ever seen in the past four years. But it is a blessing. Oh yeah, it has all been a blessing.

"I've been through the drama and now I'm getting the blessing. Hallelujah."
