Beyoncé is simply the truth in Alyah boots

I love Beyonce, but this Cowboy Carter album just isn't it.

What I love is this sense of Americana she has been imploring in her music. It all started with Lemonade. The lyrics here are really well done and catchy. And her vocals are so fkin fierce. She is the only person who can belt out like rap cadence lines. And then hold a note afterwards.

When I read it sampled 2 classics I hoped for better than this. What's with the screaming and swearing? Basic lyrics that ring hollow from someone as loaded as her.

And I hate when anyone sings their own name in a song.

R8 I do think it's so silly Beyonce sings about the "working man". Utterly ridiculous.

However, I have to give it to her. This song is really interesting and totally works for me. It's sonically all over the place, but actually tells a great story.

I now like three songs from the album: Ya Ya, The Miley song and the one other that I'm forgetting.

What I’ve noticed is that all her songs are about her: I’m this I’m that I’m a queen…

by Anonymousreply 12March 31, 2024 11:06 PM

I just can’t get over how dope this track is. I hate her cover of Jolen. It completely has no emotion which the Queen has demonstrated on many stripped down ballads before. Her turning it into “I’m a bad bitch, try me if you dare” ruins the core essence of the song

by Anonymousreply 13April 1, 2024 11:58 PM

R11 You know rich pop stars are stuck in conundrum. Dam if they don’t dam if they do. If they don’t it’s ultra materialism of their world” if they do “it’s faking the funk how can they talk from anyone’s else perspective but a rich celeb”. Since when does music HAVE TO BE autobiographical. Who made that rule. It’s wack. Can a popular Hollywood actor not portray an everyday working man, hell even a poor person. Should they only get an actor from local Denver theater scene?

I agree with you completely Teacake on one count and disagree on another.

Jolene is a bit of a disappointment and revealing at the same time. The entire heart of Jolene is a song about a woman who isn't a "bad bitch" and has to resort to begging the other woman, who has qualities she doesn't possess herself, NOT to steal her man. But Beyoncé misses this point entirely and seems to have just taken what she knows to be an iconic country song sung by a legend and re-recorded it just to get a Dolly Parton approved notch under her country music built with zero understanding of the emotion what she's singing. Robynn's Dancing on My Own captures the sentiment of this song, or even Alanis's You Oughta Know, better in a modernized telling of the same story. It reveals Beyoncé cannot position herself as the jilted woman. She always has to sing from a place of power, or going through darkness to find her power.

Which brings me to my second point. Beyoncé's discography is very personal, written from a first person narrative. She is not one who sings in the third person because her music is autobiographical - either told from her or Sasha Fierce's perspective. So it is incongruous for her to portray the everyday working man, or poor person, because the only story she usually tells is her own.

by Anonymousreply 15April 2, 2024 10:17 AM

If Beyonce wants to sing about the plight of the average person she could do more to help them, instead of all the conspicuous consumption. I'm sure she does some good but she isn't vocal about standing up for others usually. That's why those lyrics ring a bit hollow.

by Anonymousreply 16April 2, 2024 11:12 AM

R15 It’s ironic Beyoncé often paired You Oughta Know with IFWB during I am Sasha Fierce error and I thought she was quite effective and pulling off that performance.

To me Bey is a woman’s woman. I am not a woman but I’ve heard many of my female friends, they never coin that term, but that’s the ideals she represents.

Teacake, r17, Beyoncé can be a woman's woman. I wasn't saying she isn't. I was saying that Beyoncé will not portray herself as a jilted woman, a needy woman, completely at the power of someone as the song Jolene requires. She might sing about being jilted, being betrayed, but never from a point of weakness. If I Were a Boy is really a song about how feeble minded men are in understanding women. It's not a song about a desperate woman trying to save her relationship. Both You Oughta Know and Dancing on Your Own are from the point of view of a desperate woman who has been jilted and is stalking a man to make him know how much they hurt. They NEED to be seen by him. It's a very honest human emotion, for both men and women. There might be similarities to If I Were a Boy, but the point of view, the position of power is completely different. Beyonce has let go of the relationship, the boy in her song. Robyn and Alanis would take him back in an instant if he'd just asked - he probably doesn't even need to say he's sorry.

As I have previously said, the lyrics are juvenile and disjointed attempts to reflect a harsh reality that Beyoncé has never, ever known, and that is why the result comes across as so gimmicky, contrived and insincere.

This is a girl (and I say girl because it's unbelievable that such infantile, bratty and shallow lyrics would have been written and sung by a woman in her 40s) whose family's considerable income allowed her to grow up in the upper middle class economic stratum, and then went on to become extremely wealthy in her own merit as a musician. What could she possibly know about class issues or wider economic conflicts within society, when she is barely capable of stringing together a coherent sentence, is notoriously ignorant and superficial and has lived in a bubble of luxury and comfort all her life? Not only does she lack the experience to know what she's talking about, but she clearly lacks the intelligence or awareness to do so and this is precisely what makes this song so embarrassing.

I am not against people experimenting, but the results should always be impressive. When you have to rely on incessant hyperbole and accusations of racism in order to justify the lack of quality in your work, then the problem is your level of creativity and lack of musical taste. Also, maybe she should put things on other people's hands, because she is clearly a good singer but she doesn't know what to do with her talent, and neither do the people who surround her.

So yes, this is a disaster. Ya ya ya ya, indeed.

I think you might mean Alaïa as in Azzedine Alaïa. And if you mean him, he is way more than a boot maker. Don't you remember when Cher in Clueless was robbed and made to get on the ground and she said, "This is like a total Alaïa". But it's pronounced as you spelled Teacake.
