The reality-show guilty pleasure continues to reach new heights in viewership, and every season Scott-Young surprises us with twists and turns in the music industry that keep us watching. But what if she could shock the world and land someone on Beyoncé's level to star in the next season of Love & Hip Hop? What if!?

In a satirical world, Beyoncé would be the perfect cast member on Love & Hip Hop, and here are a few reasons why.
