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
Pharrell Williams produces the ‘Love Songs’ bonus cut
Last summer, Beyoncé’s father and former manager Mathew Knowles stoked up Destiny’s Child reunion rumors when he told Huffington Post that a pair of retrospective compilations were on the horizon, which would feature “new material.” The first of those sets arrived in October — Playlist: The Very Best of Destiny’s Child — sans any big surprises, but the second has just been announced, and it features the first freshly recorded song from the R&B ladies in eight years. Love Songs, due January 29, promises “mainly … romantic gems recorded between 1997 and 2004,” but also includes a track called “Nuclear” produced by Pharrell Williams and featuring the final DC lineup: Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland, and Michelle Williams.
In other Bey news, the soon-to-be Super Bowl XLVII halftime heroine appears in a new GQ profile that unfortunately includes very few revelations. She does, however, speak of her time with the girl group that put her on the path to world domination. ”You know, when I was writing the Destiny’s Child songs, it was a big thing to be that young and taking control,” she explains. “And the label at the time didn’t know that we were going to be that successful, so they gave us all control. And I got used to it. It is my goal in life to be that example. And I think it will, hopefully, trickle down, and more artists will see that. Because it only makes sense. It’s only fair.” Her HBO documentary, Beyoncé, airs next month.
There are soooo many critics in this world. I actually dig it, its different from the normal DC we are used to, but everyone changes. Listen, if we don’t experiment creatively, we will never grow into our full potential. I also believe that we are currently in a growing stage when it comes to RnB. I think of the music genre as a older teenager who is trying to figure our who they are, what to look like and who to be. They are just about to leave the awkward stage and blossom into a beautiful swan of the 21st century.
There is a sub-subculture developing within RnB and I call it Alternative Soul or Alternative RnB. Its not the usual top 40 its different, experimental and eclectic. With your Miguels, Solanges, Frank Oceans and the up and coming indy artist I know all can be in this sub-category and culture of music. I like it, I’ve been on it for a minute now. I am an alternative music head anyway so if and when I hear it in a more soulful way I can really get into it. I am not understanding what people were expecting…Solider 2?
Moreover, anytime you have Pharrell Williams produce your music, it is going to be on some intergalactic smooth vintage & airy soul sounds that cannot be considered ordinary. Like I said I did it, listen to it for yourself and gather your own opinion. I may be more bias because I am an artist, singer and fan of DC but just check it out!
If you haven’t picked up or downloaded @Solange new EP TRUE out now, then your LAME! I’m Loving every track!! It’s on a groovy 80s eclectic vibe. Written & Produced by Solange and Dev Hynes for Terrible Records…xox.
