A mod can switch the year if they get here but B's late.

Not sure what to think about that video tbh; song's great though.

is there something very nasal to the "I got hot sauce in my bag swag" line?

maybe a reference I'm not getting, maybe I just have a cold and I'm projecting

niels, Thursday, 11 February 2016 20:47 (two years ago) Permalink

this is obviously just me but the way beyoncé delivers some of the lines in this song reminds me of jt's verse in "shades"

Whoops. Forgot that I drunkenly comedy-modded this thread title over the weekend. Fixed now.

My 11-yr-old son has been hounding me ever since the Super Bowl about going to see B on tour. "I've never even been to a concert!," he pleads. So guess who's going to Atlanta on May 1? (I love that a Beyonce show will be a big father-son bonding moment.)

just saw more police boycott bullshit on CNN in the kitchen at work, fuckin idiots

robbie ca$hflo (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Wednesday, 24 February 2016 20:50 (two years ago) Permalink

i'm taken aback by all of this, i honestly thought people were more professional in doing their jobs, but this boycott thing is ridiculous, dangerous, and anti-free speech.

the people making the calls on these boycotts, do they think these actions will improve relations between the police and the community?

boycotting a popular singer for political reasons is bullshit. serve and protect motherfuckers.

i suspect they don't care

also part of this is CNN needs bullshit to talk about 24/7 and even our man trump can only do so much in a day

it's on HBO right now. i'm sure the movie will start getting bootlegged online soon enough too. i hope the album is dropping in the next few days because it'd be silly to preview every song in the movie without giving people a chance to buy the audio ASAP.

After listening to this once, it sounds pretty unremarkable to me (except for "Heard About Us" and "Lovehappy" which I liked).
"Apeshit" got a best music review on P4K. I don't really understand why...
And yeah, Hov is mostly embarrassing throughout the album !

AlXTC from Paris, Monday, 18 June 2018 12:38 (one month ago) Permalink

Hov sounds better on this than he has for about a decade, lol. It's a pretty minor release but I'm not mad at it at all. It feels luxurious and pretty intimate in a good way.

I low key hate American Gangster... so it might actually be more than a decade since he sounded this good, lol.

Is he really better than on 4:44? I remember next to nothing about that album.

actually, Beyonce sounds like she's coasting here, reusing tropes and attitude.

morning wood truancy (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Monday, 18 June 2018 13:51 (one month ago) Permalink

I'm pretty surprised that they put this up on Spotify and Apple Music so quick. Seems like they might've initially been hoping that this would boost Tidal subscription numbers, but it probably didn't. This will obviously go to #1 now, but definitely wouldn't have it had just stayed as a Tidal exclusive, and that would've been a bit too embarrassing for both of them. Also makes this Beyoncè line on NICE seem a little silly already:

If I gave two fucks about streaming numbers
Would have put Lemonade up on Spotify

triggercut, Monday, 18 June 2018 13:53 (one month ago) Permalink

Glad they added the new one, hoping this means Lemonade gets there soon as well

Poptimist-era indie rock is scary. If Beyoncé surprise releases an album on your own release, your whole career might be in jeopardy.
