Newly dropped (04/19/13) single (CALL ON ME) from Kelis my Leo sister definitely cranking up the drums given much Harlem Bodegas in thee summer with this one! It’s been on repeat since I heard it last week! Love it, and can’t wait for thee full album and can you believe it’s been 2 -3 years since her last album?
Needless to say, I am super excited and happy that she’s back her melodic raspy voice was highly missed by moi. xxo
BEYONCÉ KNOWLES confirms partnership with H&M for summer!
The singer stars in the Swedish retailer’s new campaign, modeling pieces inspired by her individual style. The singer also gave “personal input on the pieces seen in the campaign”, confirmed a representative for the brand.
The print and billboard images - which see her reclining on beach sun lounger and posing in swimwear by the sea - were shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin in the Bahamas earlier this year. The adverts will introduce the star: “Beyoncé as Mrs Carter in H&M” - tying in with the name of her upcoming world tour.
“I’ve always liked H&M’s focus on fun affordable fashion. I really loved the concept we collaborated on to explore the different emotions of women represented by the four elements - fire, water, earth and wind,” said Knowles. “It was a beautiful shoot on a tropical island. It felt more like making a video than a commercial.”
The summer campaign features swimwear and beachwear pieces - including a bikini from the H&M for Water collection, which raises money for Water Aid. The print adverts will launch alongside an accompanying television commercial - featuring a new Beyoncé song, standing On The Sun.
“H&M’s summer campaign starring Beyoncé is an epic fantasy, with glamour, drama and also a sense of paradise,” said Donald Schneider, H&M’s creative director. “It was amazing to watch her on the shoot make it all look effortless - a quality that makes her such an icon for women around the world. The campaign is the essence of Beyoncé, and also the essence of H&M this summer.”
This comes at the perfect time, Spring has just began and as we wait patiently for thee next musical installment from King Beyoncé, this is enticing enough for her fans to know that this year is truly hers. Not to mention, I used to really LOVE H&M clothing I haven’t been to that store in ages as I am more of an online and department store shopper these days (Neiman Marcus/Saks 5th) etc. but there is always a place in my heart for H&M since I once worked there! LOL Best summer/winter before moving to L.A! Haha
Anyway check out her sneak peek editorial ad! She looks great, and as usual a real motivation for me on my continuous journey towards my ultimate fitness!
Beyoncé is playing no games this time around. King Bey just dropped one of her songs from her yet to be released, yet highly anticipated album. The song “Bow Down/ I Been On” shows a new side of Beyoncé, a side we haven’t seen since her days of Destiny’s Child. She got real “Texas Trill” with the new track where she drops lines like “I know when you were little girls you dreamt of being in my world Don’t forget it, don’t forget it. Bow down bitches.”
The sassy Beyoncé continues on singing: “I took some time to live my life but don’t think I am just his little wife. Don’t get it twisted this is my shit, bow down bitches.”
Well damn, Beyoncé came to snatch wigs with her crown on! The new song is not only a reminder that Beyoncé is still reining king, but it is also paying some serious homage to her hometown of the H-Town. This is also the first listen to the song that plays in the background of her promo video for the Mrs. Carter World Tour.
So of course this BeyHivianLOL is LOVING this new sneak track! It’s coming in HARD just what I wanted, and the fact that she’s rapping in that chopped and screwed voice at the end is bananas! I’m glad she came out this way because there are A LOT of NON-Beyoncé lovers who feel like she should fall back and be just wifey and mother irregardless of the fact that none of them are selling records PERIOD!
I am a huge fan of music and singers who can sing who constantly reinvent themselves (Whitney/Mariah/Areatha/Janet whose not the best singer but is an all around great entertainer) and Bey is one of them, like it or not be prepared because the B*tch is BACK! So “Bow Down”! LOL
