THE PROBLEM WITH BEYONCE’S “SINGLE LADIES”

NO ONE LOVED “SINGLE LADIES” WHEN IT FIRST HIT RADIO… EVERYONE THOUGHT IS WAS COOL BUT WEREN’T ALL THAT IMPRESSED BY IT. FAST FORWARD TO THE VIDEO’S DROP: THE CHOREOGRAPHY WAS SURPRISINGLY HOTT AND WE HAD NEVERRRR SEEN BEYONCE DANCE SO MUCH. SASHA WAS INDEED FIERCE WHICH INTENTIONALLY STRENGTHENED THE SONG, MAKING IT MUCH HOTTER THAN PREVIOUSLY PERCEIVED. ONCE WE WERE ALL INSPIRED BY THE CHOREGRAPHY THE SONG BECAME A MAINSTAY, WHICH IS EXACTLY WHY ITS #2 ON BILLBOARD THIS WEEK AND WILL QUITE POSSIBLY DE-THROWN THE SEEMINGLY EVINCIBLE T.I AND BECOME BEYONCE’S 5TH #1 SINGLE AS A SOLO ACT.

THE PROBLEM IS:

THE PERFORMANCES ARE MECHANICAL AND PLANNED DOWN TO BEYONCE AND THE OTHER 2 DANCERS POINTING TO THERE RING FINGERS AS THE BAND PRODUCES THE FINAL NOTE. THESE TYPES OF PERFORMANCES ARE FOR ARTISTS LIKE THE BRITNEY SPEARS AND CIARA. NOT TO IMPLY THAT B CAN’T DANCE OR HAS ANY CHALLENGE WITH THE MOVEMENTS BUT THAT BY DOTTING EVERY I AND CROSSING EVERY T SHE ROBS US OF SASHA FIERCE, THE ALTER EGO AND CONFLICTING PERSONALITY THAT IS THE REAL CENTER OF HER FAN BASES’ WORSHIP 

AFTER SEEING HER JET SET ON STAGE LIVE FOR THE 4TH TIME MOST OF US WERE BORED…

WE CONTINUE TO WATCH HER PERFORMANCES IN HOPES THAT SHE’LL DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT BUT SHE NEVER DOES. SHE IS CHAINED TO THE EXACT SAME PERFORMANCE AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN. WE’RE USED TO HER SURPRISING US AND BLOWING OUR MINDS ON STAGE, HAVING THAT OUTTER BODY EXPERIENCE THATS EVIDENT DURING HER SHOWS. THATS THE PROBLEM.

HOPEFULLY HER NEXT SINGLE “DIVA” WON’T INCLUDE A DANCE SEQUENCE LIKE THIS…

NEW JAMIE FOX VIDEO FOR “JUST LIKE ME”

YEA SO JAMIE’S NEW SINGLE IS HOTT BUT IT SORTA SOUNDS LIKE “TOUCH MY BODY”, MARIAH CAREY’S LEAD SINGLE FROM HER LATEST ALBUM. YOU WON’T NOTICE IT UNTIL YOU HERE THE CHORUS HOWEVER AND YOU CAN LITERALLY SING MARIAH’S SONG OVER HIS AND IT FITS ALMOST PERFECTLY, PERHAPS BECAUSE THE DREAM WORKED ON THIS PROJECT TOO, HMMMMM… BUT THE VIDEO IS EVEN HUMOROUS IN NATURE LIKE MARIAH’S WAS… IS JAMIE JOCK’N MISS CAREY???? OH AND WE DON’T THINK THAT THE COMEDIAN JAMIE SHOULD HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH R&B SINGER JAMIE… BAD FOR BUSINESS…

GOOD SONG THOUGH, HE SHOULD DO PRETTY WELL WITH IT ONCE HE STEPS HIS PROMOTION UP…

ALBUM DROPS 12/26/2008

number-2

BEYONCE MAY HAVE ONLY MOVED 482,000 COPIES OF “I AM…SASHA FIERCE LAST WEEK BUT HER SINGLE “IF I WERE A BOY” IS NUMBER THREE ON THE BILLBOARD HOT 100 WHILE “SINGLE LADIES” ROCKETS FROM 28 TO #2 ON THE CHART. T.I HOLDS ON TIGHT TO THE #1 SPOT BUT WILL LIKELY FALL VICTIM TO B’S STING NEXT WEEK. BEYONCE IS ON TOP OF HER GAME RIGHT NOW WHETHER HER HATERZ WANT TO ADMIT IT OR NOT!!!

ciara-album-scrapped

WE’VE BEEN HEARING THIS SINCE BEYONCE CONFIRMED HER NOV.18TH DROP DATE. WE WANTED TO WAIT UNTIL IT WAS CONFIRMED BUT ANOTHER MUCH LARGER MEDIA SOURCE HAS GOTTEN WIND OF IT SO WE HAD TO SHARE… WE KNOW A FEW THINGS THEY DON’T HOWEVER…

APPARENTLY CIARA’S LABEL WASN’T PLEASED WHEN THEY SATE DOWN WITH CICI AND HER MANAGEMENT TO SELECT THE FINAL TRACKS. THEY ARE ACTUALLY CONSIDERING SCRAPPING THE ENTIRE PROJECT AND PUTTING HER BACK IN THE STUDIO FOR ANOTHER 8 MONTHS TO A YEAR… THIS HASN’T BEEN CONFIRMED AS OF YET BUT WE’LL KNOW SOON WHAT THE RESOLUTION IS…

OH AND RUMOR HAS IT THAT LA FACE, CIARA’S LABEL DOESN’T WANT 50 CENT ON THE RECORD AT ALL…HMMMMMM CURIOUS HUH.

BEYONCE TOPS THE BILLBOARD CHARTS…3 OF THEM!!!

bb-did-it

OF COURSE BEYONCE’S NEW ALBUM TOPS BILLBOARD THIS WEEK, MOVING 482,000 COPIES ITS FIRST WEEK SHE EASILY CROWNS THE CHART.

B HOWEVER WAS EXPECTED TO MOVE 750K TO A MILLION UNITS BUT THE ECONOMY, ILLEGAL DIGITAL DOWNLOADING AND THE OVERALL STATE OF THE MARKET PREVENTED THIS. THIS ALBUM ACTUALLY MOVED LESS COPIES THEN HER 2006 RELEASE AND BEYONCE “THRILLER ALBUM” B’DAY, WHICH SHIFTED 541.000 COPIES THAT SUMMER.

BEYONCE HAS BEEN ATTACKED BY THE HATERS AND THE MEDIA ALIKE ABOUT WHAT WAS SUGGESTED TO A POSSIBLE FLOP BUT CLEARLY HER PRESENCE ATOP THE HOT 200 ALBUM CHART, HOT DIGITAL DOWNLOADS CHART WITH “IF I WERE A BOY” AND HIPHOP/R&B CHART WITH “SINGLE LADIES” SUGGEST OTHERWISE. BEYONCE CAN STILL SNAP FOR THE KIDS, SNAP FOR YOU SUCKAS 3 TIMES. QUEEN B IS STILL RUNNING SH** LIKE NO ONE ELSE CAN AND IS STILL UNQUESTIONABLY THE BADDEST CHICK IN THE GAME.

BEYONCE FIRST WEEK SALES FOR ALL THREE SOLO ALBUMS FYI:

I AM…SASHA FIERCE: 482,000

B’DAY: 541,000

DANGEROUSLY IN LOVE: 317,000

JOHN LEGEND’S EVOLVER ALBUM REVIEW

Posted in ALBUM DEBUTS, ALBUM REVIEWS, ALBUMS, ARTICLES, BILLBOARD, JOHN LEGEND, KANYE WEST, MUSIC, NEW ALBUMS, NEW MUSIC, NEWS, POPULAR MUSIC, R&B, RNB, SOUL, trueclefmusic, TRUECLEFMUSIC.COM with tags , , , , , , , on November 26, 2008 by JupiterDaTruth

john-legend-cover

THIS IS HANDS DOWN JOHN LEGEND’S BEST WORK TO DATE AND ONE OF THE BEST ALBUMS OF 2008. EVOLVER DROPPED OVER A MONTH AGO BUT WE SLEPT ON HIM FOR A MINUTE. WE PICKED IT UP THE SAME DAY WE PURCHASED BEYONCE’S “I AM…SASHA FIERCE”. THE ALBUM IS FRESH, SMART AND WELL PLANNED. IF COLUMBIA PROMOTES HIM CORRECTLY WE CAN HAVE A GREAT 2009.

JOHN BEGINS THE ALBUM WITH A INTRO CALLED “GOOD MORNING”. KANYE’S GRADUATION ALBUM ALSO INTROS WITH A SONG OF THE SAME TITLE BUT KANYE EXECUTIVE PRODUCED THIS ALBUM WITH JOHN SO NO SURPRISE.

ALBUM HIGHLIGHTS:

SATISFACTION

GOOD MORNING (THE FULL SONG)

QUICKLY (FEATURING BRANDY)

IT’S OVER (FEATURING KANYE WEST)

THIS ALBUM IS HIGHLY LISTENABLE SO THERE A MORE GREAT TRACKS THEN THESE BUT HE SHINES BRIGHTEST ON THOSE LISTED ABOVE. HAVING KANYE PRODUCE AND HELP HIM WITH THIS PROJECT IS ONE OF THE BEST DECISIONS HE’S MADE REGARDING HIS CAREER THUS FAR. THE MUSIC IS INFECTIOUS AND YOU’LL BE HUMMING LONG AFTER YOUR IPODS OFF. THIS FACT IS ESPECIALLY EVIDENT ON THE TRACKS LISTED AS WELL AS THE ANDRE 3000 COLLABO “GREEN LIGHT” AND THE ESTELLE AIDED “NO OTHER LOVE”.

THE VERDICT:

THIS IS A GREAT ALBUM FOR ANY LOVER OF TRUE R&B AND GOOD MUSIC. JOHN FINALLY REALIZES HIS POTENTIAL OVER THESE 14 TRACKS AND WE CAN’T GET ENOUGH. GO OUT AND GET IT OR OPEN UP YOUR ITUNES AND DOWNLOAD IT. SUPPORT MY MAN JOHN LEGEND!!!

RATING: 9 OUT OF 10
