Is OP Roxane Gay? This is how she speaks about Beyoncé all the time. (I'm teasing, OP)
Anyway, I was quite surprised to hear her do something like this, so it's interesting to me from that perspective. I'll probably give it a few listens, and I'm not at all a fan of hers. The bit with what sounds like a guitar sample I liked particularly.
(as an aside, here is Roxane talking about it. I'm laughing at the line: "stylistically it understands 90's House" - so Roxy is an expert here on this topic now too!)

Beyonce rarely acknowledges her gay fanbase. She only said something a few years ago with Jay-Z to honor them in like 2019 or something but back in the 2000s when she was at her peak, she said nothing to vocally support gays nor showed interest in gay rights. And no, having gay backup dancers, wearing drag queen wig and stilettos and hiring Frank Ocean for a song doesn't really count. What's her excuse? Mary J Blige, Toni Braxton, Mo'Nique, Janet, Nicki and Ciara have called out homophobia and/or supported gays in public.

R48 Beyonce's debut album was huge and she was pretty untouchable after that. Also, gays and black women were her main audience after 2010 or so when she stopped getting hits. She amassed a huge Twitter following called the Beyhive which was mostly gays. The fact it took her until the late 2010s or so to make an announcement of support for the gay community seems a bit dirty. I don't really hate her for it but it just shows she doesn't give a shit about anyone but herself and that's why I don't understand gays who worship these straight female celebrities who use gays for sales. Madonna did break grounds for supporting gays back in the 80s and Gaga while becoming derivative and boring deserves her gay icon status for making her support clear from her debut and onward.

Beyonce took a lot from Madonna. The high-budget music videos, feminism, pageantry and religious/goddess persona. Madonna gets compared to Michael Jackson but I don't see it nor do I see Janet. I see a mix of Diana Ross, Tina Turner, Madonna and Grace Jones. Madonna can't sing but she accomplished a shit ton on her own while Beyonce had tons of help.

Madonna actually seems to praise most people. If she doesn't like them, she usually just says nothing like with Janet. The only person she seems to have hated from what I know is Lady Gaga.

Madonna hopped on trends and definitely took from lesser known acts. I think she got away with it because she had no competition for a while and who could challenge her. Michael Jackson had similar to peerlessness which nobody could point out his snatching songs. Madonna's Confessions was clearly derivative of Kylie Minogue but Kylie was a two-hit wonder in America, so not competition. I think when Hard Candy came out, it was such a blatant copy of Nelly Furtado, Britney and Timberlake's albums with the same producer that it woke the public up.

She should be proud. She put a lot of effort into B'Day and 4 and neither really matched her team's expectations. I think she loves funk and soul music and seems most comfortable with it. Unfortunately, she's too self-conscious to take too many risks and follow her gut. That is my biggest issue is she's too conservative about her image and maintaining her stature. Too many Grammy-bait projects and lack of soul or emotional attachment. When she is given freedom, she shines. Like pre-freed Britney, she is just drugged out and takes a lot of orders.

Very true. What happened to me today was I heard this Beyoncé song, thought: "Oh, this reminds me how much I like House music" and I subsequently spent the day listening to the really excellent stuff, rather than revisiting her song again.
All these weirdos on Twitter getting so excited about "Queen Bey telling us to quit our jobs!" Really? So multi-millionaire Beyoncé suggests you quit your jobs and you think that's a great idea? Is she going to be paying your bills?
There was a really funny tweet that I can't find now of some girl desperately trying to make an argument about how "vital" it was for Beyoncé to sample other songs, as a show of, I dunno, strength or something? It was hilarious because you could tell the girl was trying to convince herself that Beyoncé was a much more thoughtful musician than she deep down knew the reality was.
I have no idea why Roxane Gay, who is nearly 50, is constantly writing about Beyoncé on Twitter like she's a 14 year old girl. And this "Queen Bey" shit people indulge in is so ridiculous.
