I liked some of the songs but not enough to subscribe to tidal. Anyway, at least we can put those surrogate rumors to rest.
Take that Rihanna. They purposely fucked over your release and flawlessly released Beyoncés with theatrics and she remains superior. Bloop
While I agree Beyonce is a unique and superior total package, come on. Rihanna dominates Beyonce in every category. Rihanna just broke a chart record held by the Beatles. She's beating the Beatles. Beyonce really can't touch her.
Want do I want?To beat a Beatles record? OR get accolades from a company my husband owns?Bloop!Rihanna gets the job done without TidalBloop!BEYONCE needs Tidal, HBO, lip sync music, a blow fan, Jay Z, and 24/7 press release.Rihanna needs nothingBLOOPITY BLOOP!
@11:15 Agreed. They messed over Rhianna and she still broke records.
I want to hear The album but let's not try to act like Beyonce is in the same lane as Rihanna. They tried to sabotage Rihanna so many times at Def Jam / Tidal..they even dropped Beyoncé's single a week after Rihanna's album. Now what kind of label puts out their top artists a week apart. Even with that Rihanna still came out on top. Rihanna's numbers and success make Beyonce look like child's play. I agree with the above commenter that Beyonce needed tons of publicity, HBO, and dozen tumors put out by her camp..and she's still trying to convince the public that was she was pregnant. She must have for Steven Spielberg himself to pull off that Fvck Sh!t... I was like no not again. Your stomach folded bih=not pregnant. Girl BYE!
10:43Rihanna is still the Digital Queen, and if you don't believe me then ask Billboard, and sound scan Those Charting Companies will be your best friends if you let them.
@11:15 now let's see how many #1s this album gets her.
Rihanna is not worried about the things Beyonce people has been buying and paying for to try to keep her on top.
Can Beyonce beat Adele are Taylor though.
11:30 So true.
@11:32 pm if it were that easy Beyawnce would have bought a #1 by now. She hasn't had a #1 single in 8 years!! Try again.
11:15 Tell the truth , and shame the devil.
11:41 I know that is right because Beyawance hasbought every dam thing else she can buy, and pay for.
That Lemonade is more like piss. The video on HBO was bullshit. Seriously.
Umm....rihanna didn't go platinum without help from Samsung. Truth. Rihanna has the lowest selling number one CD in the history of the charts per forbes magazine. Beyonce, Adele, Taylor swift need no help. Lemonade
@11:56 pm I can always smell a Rihanna hater. You guys say things like- she's a #1 artist..but it's just because she's pretty. Or she had a #1 album, BUT it was the lowest in blah blah. The reality is this girl is not even 30 yet and only 2 other artists in history have more #1s than her.!! Can you imagine accomplishing that before 27??! That's phenomenal she's been on the cover a vogue a million times, she has her own fashion line, own shoe, and millions of fans. You can't take a dam thing from her. These are her accomplishments. She hasn't had to fake pregnancies, lie about her age, or put out divorce rumors to stay relevant. What have you accomplished?? Being a Beyonce flunkie
And 11:56 pm they didn't count the Samsung purchases into her #1. #fact
And we're supposed to believe her husband's company when they say her album release crashed their servers? REALLY??
That Lemonade is more like piss. The video on HBO was bullshit. Seriously.11:55 PM--------------Bwahahaha!! That bad, eh?
Please Rihanna is very good in her own lane. Make no mistake though, when it comes to the entire picture; she will NEVER, EVER be on Beyonce's level or above it. Making history on billboard charts but canceling tour dates because of ticket sells? Hmmm That's like a person making employee of the month every month for a year for their hard, admirable work vs someone getting raises for their hard, admirable work!! Yawn and next!
For those who did not watch, please explain why the surrogate rumors can be now laid to rest.
@3:19 I didn't watch but I saw a clip of her with a pregnant belly but if she were really pregnant why no nude belly photo shoots. Why the need not to show nude video of a belly? They can create dragons and Star Wars and all kinds of special effects so it's no reason they couldn't create a belly. The camera went down her body slow and I'm not sure if it's actually a total shot with her head and belly but she knows people are onto the surrogate truth. She needs to just admit it by now. She looks foolish.
Who ever did the visuals, deserves the accolades. Amazing...
FUCK RIHOENA, this post is about BEYONCE!!!!
I'm sorry. I'm a Bey fan and if she's putting out an album with those songs on it, I'll pass. Those songs were lukewarm warm at best.although the video with her Jay n blue was cute that's the only good thing I have to say.she was in N.O. I was expecting some Deja Vu or something. That's what she needs to go back to bc this new Bey isn't cutting it.
@ 4 :31 She wants to be an actress and win an Oscar. I watched some of the video to join in the discussion, and I can say that it made no sense to me other than her playing dress up.. and acting wounded. Being overly dramatic to win another accolade.MAKE THIS TRY HARD GO THE HELL AWAY.
Garbage. Here's the songs.http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/beyonce-releases-new-album-lemonade-on-tidal-20160423
From the Dlisted comments section: "This is not bloody art, this is self indulgent BS, by a mentally sub par, singing and gyrating idiot, and her paid team of yes-slaves."
Totally agree 7:16. HBO is yet another format for Beyonce to worship HERSELF. And the Cluless Beybots and mindless drones to join in her self worship.Every single VIRGO is a malignant narcissist. Make no mistake about it.They try so hard to down play Rihanna, the real star and success story. You know why? Because people are AFRAID to admit that Rihanna is actually better than Beyonce and the real SUPERSTAR. Just like it took 50 years for people to finally admit PRINCE was better than MJ.
Love RIRI; they can't keep her down and Lord please tell these fools Beyonce ain't never gonna out sell Adele, please. Also Tidal lies; if Kanye crazy butt didn't crash that wack site then she sure didn't. They stay lieing. RIRI they didn't lie for you and you still came out on top; I don't even know what formation sounds like that song was forgotten when the superbowl went off.
@7:16 am d-E to Tha muthafvckin D!!! I fell asleep watching it. I wish she would bring Matthew back. I loved mindless glam doll gyrating Beyonce. She will never be capable of producing art with depth. More fake pregnant bellies. More speculation about her marriage. Real life video. She's trying to fuse the real Beyonce with the stage Beyonce, and still I feel like I know even less of the artist I knew before.

Like someone else said, whoever did the visuals is AMAZING. Kudos to them. As far as the music? BORING with a capital B. It's the same shit from the last album with the same exact content. I work hard/I'm a boss/Fuck the haters/I Luh my mama and daddy/I luh Jay even though he still couldn't care less etc etc etc
The reason the music is so melancholy is because Bey has accepted defeat. She's getting older, she's beginning to accept Jay (and his other kids) for who he is. I want the old Bey back but that aint gon happen.
@9:58 am the problem is that Matthew Knowles MADE the Beyonce we came to love. He created her image like Japetto carved Pinochio and gave him life. Now she thinks she can recreate that magic on her own. How is she going to mastermind a brand when didn't even finish high school? Matthew told her how to dress , sit, and speak. This post Matthew Beyonce doesn't even do interviews. There is a disconnect that exists between her and the public. And the music no longer tells a story. She's grasping for straws.
The visual artistry is EVERYTHING! She has the white people crying white tears of course.
So they want us to believe that every new thing she does becomes so wildly popular that it "crashes" servers. The same servers that are configured to withstand millions of simultaneous connections? Her PR people once again need new to come up with new ideas.10:16 is right. Mathew please come get your daughter to save her career and dignity.
@Girl BYEYou are right about the disconnect. In fact, that can apply to many artists these days. They can connect with their fanbase but not necessarily with the GP. Bey can fix that but I don't see her going in that direction. She's comfortable with her mediocre music, messy husband and fake pedestal.
The "Lemonade" album is available on TIDAL. It's mediocre if you're wondering.
I'm glad she finally told the psycho Beyhive members, "God is God and I am not"!!
7:16 AM They don't do to many articles on her but when they do the commenters go hard. And posts about the Kardashians, chile the horror!
I LOVE this gorgeous white woman's fabulous (yet mediocre and sub-par) new album!!! I would expect nothing more from #BOyonce!!!
"Lemonshade" would have been a better title for these basement reject "songs"! I'm beginning to think she's finally writing her own material.
The Real Fedup said...I hate to say this but finally some in depth crap from her beyond shaking her ass and pussy poppin. Beyonce told the world that Jayz cheated on her ass and called him out. That woman made folks pay to see to hear her tea out of her mouth via music. I predict the album won't sell as much because it not typical Beyonce album. It is in depth depression ish close enough to want to slit your wrist type of music. She GOOP her Beyhive lol. She didn't deliver no music dance or twirling anthems they thirst for. The lemonade way dry and bitter. I don't know what kind of tour she do with this type of album. It will be boring to some of her fan base. They are not wanting mature in depth Beyonce. They want pussy pop weave wagging sing about childish anthem Beyonce.
Hey @The Real FedupI really miss your blog. Are you guys back up and running?
Amazing how Beyonce only gives insight into her private life when it's time for the fools, I mean fans to open their wallets, and they fall for it every time.
@1:02 it wasn't my blog it was Miss Andi K. It's just a forumNow. Just google destiny rehab and forum link comes up and you sign up.
@ Chrissy Snow okay? That is my favorite blogger right there.
Mine too @yeahboiI visit the forum every now and then but the blog kept me in stitches with their recaps.
@2:47 pm yes. The fools..I mean fans eat it up every time. I think they have certain bloggers retype these lies knowing damn well it's not true. S.Rose types these lies every time she puts an album out and by this time (4th or 5th) I'm like you can't really be falling for this chit.
Round of applause for Beyoncé. She gave a great visual album. As big of a name she is to have so many beautiful black women of every tone, the mother's of slaine black youth, african accents all on display. *applause* Not to mention the Malcolm X speech about the struggles of black women.She's finally showing who she is and not what people want her to be. I can't wait to purchase her new album.
^ Save your money, the album is trash.
It Should be called more like HEY Kool-Aid
@5:30- I agree and if I bought albums I would buy this one for the visuals and because she's still unapologetic!!
@7:46 PM. I agreed with everything you said up until you said Prince was better than MJ. Prince was great in his own rights, very talented and played several instruments. However, it's the impact one will make. Michael affected the entire world. It wasn't no glitz and glam because Prince was glitz and glam as well. Michael was beyond talented and he raised the bar. He broke barriers. He and Prince were the same age. If Prince was on the level of MJ, he would have been able to break racial barriers and other records before Michael ever did. Sales and numbers proved that. Prince use to even hate on MJ hard, when Michael still respected him and his work. That shows the difference between the two. Let's not try to pretend MJ wasn't in a lane of his own. Prince was a musical genius and so was Michael. Michael wrote songs as well, phenomenal dancer, and was everything that a superstar entailed. I adore Rihanna. But lets not try to act like this "feud" or competition between her and Beonce is on the same level as MJ and Prince. What the fake one and Rihanna is doing is Child's play but we clearly see that Rihanna is more creative and straight than beyounce because of her body of work. That is all. Carry on please.
Yall wild..Rihanna cant even sing!! Yodeling on every damn song!
I sat and listened to the entire album last night. And ummm...., It was just o.k. to me. While I applaud her for wanting to try new sounds and genres, it just didn't do it for me. "Daddy Lessons" was a country song. "Hold Up" was reggae. It sounds very much like something Rihanna would do. "Don't Hurt Yourself" is straight up rock. It was a bit all over the place. I don't know if this is the BeyHive's usual flavor from Beyonce. It may take some time to grow on them. Other than that, it was o.k.
8:28pmMy apologies if you're old enough to remember.I must respectfully disagree with you. Just about everything you said about Michael Jackson in glowing terms was ALSO true about Prince. Prince was a HUGE global artist & star celebrated all over the world. He too was responsible for breaking down racial & sexual barriers during his career. One of the real differences between Prince's & MJ's appeal were their personalities. Michael's personality was considered more widely acceptable because he appealed moreso to children & families. Mike had a gentle, innocent almost child-like aura about him. The fact that the world saw & fell in love with Mike in the early 1970s as a child performer with his brothers gave him a huge head-start on Prince image & career wise.Prince, however, was the sophisticated "bad boy," if you will. From the very beginning of his career as a teenager, Prince's image was NOT child nor family-friendly. Prince was for ADULTS. And horny, rebellious teenagers. Prince was an edgy trailblazer. His music & personality appealed to mature audiences all over the world. Prince's appeal grew throughout the world as he grew as an artist over the years.Both he & Michael sang & wrote about deep issues throughout their careers. Both wrote hits for other artists. Both did charitable work throughout their careers. Both sold millions of records & concerts throughout the years.And both are LEGENDS.
@8:28 pm I totally agree with you. I don't think Prince and MJ were on the same page..not even the same book. When MJ toured he filled stadiums. I'm sure everyone knows at least 10 MJ songs. From Prince Raspberry Beret and Purple Rain. I remember watching MJ on tour and people would pass out and have to be carried off. The effect he gave was like Jesus came down himself. He was more famous than anyone. He was the entertainer everyone wanted to be. I can go on. And let's not forget having the biggest album EVER! I remember when MJ would do an interview everything stopped. But I can respect Prince for doing great work.
@9:25 pm yes both legends but when Michael was in his hay day it was like Prince who? Michael had hits...everything he did was iconic. I think Prince made most of his money from touring nonstop for decades. As far as cultural impact Prince made one but nothing Iike Michael. Michael changed his whole face and skin color. No one did that before. This m'fer had tigers and lions in his house. The scale of his wealth, talent and presence are apples and oranges. All this discussion is taking into account you were actually alive during the 80s. It sounds like you weren't and that you're reading a review from someone else about these 2. If you lived threw it you would know.
@Girl BYEPrince RIVALED MJ. He wasn't no step it fetch it. Yes MJ was one of a kind, SO WAS PRINCE. What other nigga you know wore heels, makeup and blouses and didn't get called a drag queen? Have you been paying attention in the last few days to all the outpouring all over the world for Prince?
@10:19pm Prince was one of MJ's contemporaries but the average person can't name more than 1 or 2 Prince songs. Prince affected a percentage of people but Michael was a global phenomenon. I remember when he met the queen of England. It was like who is the more famous person. How many #1s does Prince have? What records has he broken or set? He is a legend but it's like Oprah and Wendy Williams. They're both doing their thing but one is a global force. Yea I have been watching the news but most people are not keeping it real..just jumping on the bandwagon. And you saying Prince wore heels...that just ads to the gimmick factor. And he was bisexual according to reports. No straight man does that. I'm not hating but if you think being a legend means being outrageous and wearing heels then I see we're talking about apples and oranges.
^^^You can't be really serious. Wait are you? You must be really, really young. Different strokes for different folks, their styles as well as their lyrics were completely different. Michael "dancing" Jackson was a legend and Prince "could play 27 instruments" Nelson was a legend. #The END!
@Girl BYETo compare Prince to Wendy Williams CLEARLY shows were on a different page. And Prince wearing heels wasnt a gimmick it was HIM. Everyone on the news is calling him a GLOBAL icon. Seems like he was only local to you and the minority.
GirlBYE @ 9:59PM,I'm 9:25PM. Respectfully, check yourself. I was born in the 1970s. Grew up in the 1980s. I was a fan of both artists. Followed both of their careers carefully. I don't need Google or anywhere else on the internet to tell me about two artists who I GREW UP being fans of. Apparently, YOU need the internet to educate yourself about Michael Jackson's & Prince's histories. I LIVED IT.
Half of this conversation is about Rihanna and the other half a debate about MJ vs Prince. That says a lot.
Why do ppl Argue over OTHERS accomplishments???????FOOLISH
@2:59 am you check yourself. You're speaking from a personal opinion and I'm talking facts. When 1 Prince album goes 11 X DIAMOND then we will talk. I'm speaking #facts. All you Prince fans are saying is subjective things about them being equal when they clearly had different sales #s and records. In terms of sales, tours, and records they were on 2 ENTIRELY DIFFERENT LEVELS. #fact. I'm not responding anymore.
as it was going on, it was deny, deny, deny.now she unleashes her dirty laundry in a CD and you thirsty, non music knowing people drink it upCo sign:Amazing how Beyonce only gives insight into her private life when it's time for the fools, I mean fans to open their wallets, and they fall for it every time.2:47 PM
