Beyonce…. Still running the music scene?

May 23, 2011 1 comment

After first hearing Beyonce’s latest single I was soooooo disappointed, that I believed I wouldn’t be posting the video once released.  But I wanted to know what you guys thought, plus use it as an excuse to post up my boys remix, which I believe is better 😉

The song is a rip off; I didn’t expect Beyonce to recycle a beat that isn’t amazing or classic. If she’s gonna make a club/party track surely she could have got a fresh beat? But it’s also the fact she’s done yet another club track that we could really do without, lets face it. Beyonce said she wants to be remembered as a legend, well in that case she needs to do better than this. Legends don’t produce songs like this. This track sounds like many others and I will forget it in an instant. Not to mention that I’m a bit tired of women using their pussy, looks and sexuality to define “power”. Women act like pussy is the one thing men do not have that we do, so the one thing we can use to divide ourselves and be powerful. But I disagree. It’s boring seeing her gyrate her crotch and I’m bored of music videos being soft porn shows for men. If women run the world, why does our sole purpose seem to be catering for and trying to be as attractive as possible to men? It would have been refreshing to see Beyonce show off women with brains, or even fully dressed for a change, and being sexy for reasons other than aesthetic ones.  Plus the divide between men and women is also getting boring.

And it’s not only the song/concept that disappointed me; the video was pretty naff too. Seen it all before B, I’m sorry. My favourite part; when Beyonce wears the stunning green dress and dances; we all know she is a great dancer and I enjoyed that scene.  It is undeniable that Beyonce can sing, dance, and perform better than any artist we have on the scene, so with that in mind, I always expect something spectacular. Beyonce played it safe with this one, afraid that breaking boundaries may fail her, so stuck to an old but catchy club beat and the infamous gyrating, to ensure solid sales. I feel let down. I feel ripped off. All this time you’ve been quiet, I was getting excited that you had amazing things in store Bey! HOWEVER, it is rumoured that Beyonces forthcoming tracks may be afro beat, and I am TOTALLY looking forward to that if that be the case.

Beyonce, you’re still the Queen, but that crown is slipping……

The first producer I am going to feature is 23yr old songwriter Maleek Berry. I’ve heard/seen his name within the industry and was aware he was doing his thing, but never got the time to have a proper listen until now. Maleek has been producing for 7 years now, working with artists such as SAS, Bigz, PW, Ikes, Nike J, Castro and Jermaine Riley just to name a few. One of my fave tracks of his is “Suitcase”, featuring and written by Grace Obika. Have a listen 🙂

Maleek is also currently working his way into the afro beat market, as well as working on a new project with the talented Ikes called “Port Mayfair”, but you’ll have to listen out for more news on that.
