So even though this happened a couple weeks ago, I still can’t believe what Miss Beyonce did! She dropped an album out of freakin nowhere, and not only that included a video for each song, like who does that!? She’s pretty much amazing. Went #1 in 66 countries in less than 24 hours, and kept this album super secret and not a single song was leaked ever, that’s pretty much unheard of until now. I am a huge Beyonce fan, my little self had every destiny’s child album and I even still have the dolls (which my mom never allowed me to take out of box) and will forever be on #queenbey . I will admit though I am a bigger fan of her than her music, like obviously I love her hit singles but I have never sat down and just listened to one of her albums all the way through. When Beyonce released her self titled visual album I was amazed and intrigued and before buying it immediately like everyone else I wanted to see what people were saying about it. Obviously this album got a lot of mixed reviews, some said it was too sexual for her as a mother, some said it didn’t really sound like her music, and every drag queen and gay man obviously loved loved loved it. For Christmas I got an itunes gift cards and decided to go head and buy it. I listened to all the songs, and watched all the videos in one sitting. At first I wasn’t super impressed, none of the songs really sounded like Beyonce hits. But then I watched the videos, and then the songs really made sense and her vision really came together. The songs on their own are alright but the songs and videos together really tell a visually beautiful story, and its amazing that she was able to tell her team her creative vision and they were able to create so wonderfully. My favorite songs on the album by themselves are ‘Partition’, and ‘drunk in love’. I don’t have to watch the videos to boogies to those songs. But my favorites song with the videos are ‘ super power’ (which her hair and makeup are super fierce in), and ‘mine’. My favorite song on the entire album is ‘flawless’ , mainly because the message is so girls rule, it’s very much a more grown up intellectual bad ass version or girls run the world. As for Beyonce’s performance on the whole album it’s self, I do have to agree it’s way more sexual than anything else of heard from her, but I really like. She’s a wife and mom and is full of nasty thoughts hah, like go her! And I definitely like her message of girls should be equal, this album is very feminist and I love that too. Overall I definitely recommend purchasing, if you haven’t already its one of those albums worth having even if your not a huge Beyonce fan. It great to listen to when your just relaxing or getting ready to go out with your girls.
