Beyoncé drops new surprise single “Black Parade” to support BLM & Black Owned Businesses during these times

r2, And the thing is she can still tour and move album units. When other pop divas had flop singles their whole projects failed. Poor albums relative to the time period, low ticket sales. She has never had a flop era. Thats why I say she is like a rockstar in the form an r&b diva. Most of the rock titans never really needed pop radio to sustain careers, though like her they have a handful of signature songs.

R37 she's part creole on her mother's side. And all of the creole people I know heavily claim their blackness. Jada pinkett Smith is also creole because of her mother, and she rides hard for black causes.

And most black Americans have have European ancestry because of slavery. I have over 43.7 % European ancestry in my blood, but you would never know it. I'm brown skinned and do not locked mixed at all. But several blood tests have come to the same conclusions over and over again. But I guess that's the story for most African Americans.

It all goes back to slavery in America. Rape was a huge problem during slavery and I guess that explains all of the European blood running through my veins today.

My point wasn't about skin color but about those that seem to need undying attention that they would take it from anywhere where they had a large audience at the expense of taking the attention away of what the holiday is and what it means. I knew nothing about Junteenth and am just learning about it. I Don't want to spend my life associating it with Beyonce because it isn't and will never be about Beyonce or anyone else that feels the need to shine the spotlight on themselves.

I know being black isn't easy with all the prejudice that has been suffered since the beginning of time but I am getting tired of people always thinking that ALL white people would be okay with a situation if the person wasn't black but was white. If something isn't right I don't give a damn what color the persons skin is and there are others out there that believe this like me. You don't want all of black people painted with the same brush so don't paint all white people with the same brush.

I actually really like the chorus. She always does better with more melodic fare IMO and she still has good harmonies, even with this largely being in a lower register.

The production sounds a bit derivative of Solange's recent work though (that droning pulsing bass), and I HATE that stale trap beat that runs throughout the song. Makes the song sound like it was made on Garageband. Cheap sounding.

Those who insist she doesn't care any more about charts and reception seem to have missed her and Jay Z's last album where they bragged about how great they are, how much money they have, and said such lines as 'Tell the Grammy's fuck that 0 for 8 shit.' I think it's pretty clear she still wants that industry recognition.

The reason Beyoncé fired the original members minus Kelly was because they couldn’t carry a tune nor harmonize.

A few years ago someone broke down all the harmonies in Destiny’s Child songs and Bey even had to record many of the harmonies to harmonize with her own melodies. The other girls were sort of just there minus Kelly, and then eventually Michelle.

To be fair all of this was about 20 years ago. She has grown up a lot since then. She's also still friends with former member LeToya Luckett (who Kelly also mentioned she still sees) and finally had a mini reunion LaTavia Roberson -- although LaTavia said she and Beyonce hadn't seen each other in 18 years at the time.

Ugh. People on DL love to say Robyn and Britney had the same sound because Max Martin produced them yet neither of their songs/albums sound ANYTHING alike. It makes no sense.

Both Robyn and Britney came in a post TLC wave. Britney's debut single was even a TLC reject.

by Anonymousreply 15006/22/2020

Robyn had 2 singles peak at #7.

“Do You Know (What It Takes)” in 1996 and then “Show Me Love” in 1997.

Not one other song of hers has ever charted in the states. Not one.

Her debut album is her best selling album in the states, and peaked at ... 57!!!

Don’t try to downplay Britney for Robyn.

No one needs to downplay Britney. But she did not have a unique sound.

Good song. Comments under the song in YouTube are hilarious.

The song makes lots of references to Africa. Everyone’s going into all the themes and symbols and what she’s trying to say.

Someone wrote: She just googled African history, dropped them into a song, and is making money off of George Floyd’s death

No. She worked her ass off to get where she is. I doubt someone who is “illiterate” can accomplish all this.

Will Beyonce's European ancestors drip on her? "Beyoncé’s maternal grandparents were French-speaking Louisiana Creoles, with roots in New Iberia; their ancestry included African and French (including French ancestors who lived in Canada). Through her mother’s line, Beyoncé is a great-great-great-great-great-great-granddaughter of Acadian leader Joseph Broussard. Beyoncé is also of approximately 1/32 Irish ancestry, and has distant Spanish and Breton roots on her mother’s side, as well (at least one of her great-great-great-great-great-grandfathers, Juan Tomas Francisco Garrido, was Spanish)."

BeYawnce - a real black woman from the top of her Asian-hair wig, down her chiseled down nose, kissing off her filler- injected lips, past her lightened skin and jumping off her ass implants - she's the real deal. Wow, what a fake woman. Lol.

No one is going to call you racist if you say things that actually make sense.

When someone says her track is bombing when it's #1 on iTunes or she is profiting off of George Floyd's death when all the sales from the track are going to charity ... that's when someone is going to call you racist. Those things aren't factual at all.

If you say she wasn't good in Austin Powers or she was terrible at doing interviews then no one will go in on you. People know that.

I'm not that poster but it's contouring. As a matter of fact that second picture is from 2013. This one is more recent and she's not wearing makeup.

Each of Beyonce's SIX solo albums debuted at #1 on the Billboard charts. She is the only artist in history to achieve this. She is the most nominated woman in Grammy history and the second highest female winner with 24 Grammys. All 13 songs from Lemonade charted at once. She was named Billboard's artist of the decade for TWO fucking decades. From 2000 to 2019. Her music is evolutionary in scope, style and production. There is no style of music she can't sing, she can't be categorized. Her tour records are seismic and surpass anything that Madonna, Adele or Swift have achieved. No one really knows who she is, but she is always gracious. And sometimes FIERCE. Beyonce is far from dumb - she absolutely invented WOKE. For good reason and causes that hurt her and Obama, but one that revolutionizes the world this very day. STOP KILLING US.

Beyonce is about to set the world on fire. Again. End of July. She's the greatest icon of our time. So beautiful, powerful & instantly relevant. Just with her breath - the sound of her words. But then comes her music, the beats, the rituals of new worlds. Messages of hope and uprising. History meets the future. Such dignity and beauty she brings to us. She illuminates our suffering but never lacks courage and hope. Her visuals stun, her words teach and lead us. Such beauty. She is the most powerful musical figure in the world. We love her. We respect her influence. We await what comes next.

The Black Parade.
