Yay part two!

MikePJB 09-01-2012 15:26

Yay finally made it to part 2 :).

I watched her Roseland DVD and I loved it. Even though I've heard the story about her with the star search thing etc I still enjoyed it, and I loved seeing the performances of the tracks from '4'.

I liked the backstage parts too. Great DVD :).

Now Beyonce can say "I was here...":p

ilovezenyatta 10-01-2012 02:29

she's a great artist who's achieved hits on her own and with destiny's child.

Just discovered how good End Of Time is. Was never that big a fan if it until this weekend. Gonna give 4 another play this week.

Time for life in this thread!

Bey's first outing since birth! She looks as hot as ever, if not hotter! Gorgeous!

See the beauty here!

Werk! Motherhood is definitely agreeing with her:D.

MCA1992 08-02-2012 13:50

Beyoncé still looks more gorgeous than ever and has opted for the more classical look last night. See the bootylicious queen here

MCA1992 08-02-2012 17:30

It's official! Beyoncé will release End of Time as the latest cut off 4. The only reason I know how is cause she's offering a competition to remix her latest single and win money/be included as an official remix with the single. Hoping she films a video for it. For more info check here

MCA1992 09-02-2012 18:26

Been replaying 4 again, my favourite song keeps changing. At the moment it's I Miss You, such a beautiful chilled song, Beyoncé's voice is perfect on it. It makes me think it must have been written about Beyoncé's miscarriage?

:eek: I had the same vibe after recently playing it...i mean knowing more about it and everything it kinda makes sense with how emotional it is. Plus the production behind it is really emotional too and chilled back. I love that about it. It is one of my favourites on 4 definitely.

This album really is incredible. My fav tracks are:

Best Thing I Never Had
Countdown
End Of Time
Schoolin Life
Dance For You
Love On Top
I Was Here

She should have put Dance For You on the original album version. Rnb charts and radio stations are absolutely loving it. I'm praying that she performs Schoolin Life on the next tour.

MCA1992 13-02-2012 17:04

Beyoncé is back at work again! Ryan Tedder has confirmed that they have begun having conservations about album 5! So I assume recruiting him means something more radio-friendly and commercial. Looking forward to what they cook up together as I love Halo.

little-monster 13-02-2012 17:17

Yeah read that earlier. Gotta give Bey her due. Not even a baby can slow her down. Although i wonder what the latest is on her doing A Star Is Born.

oh no not commercial and radio friendly stuff :( but at the same point the idea of her creating material about her baby and newly becoming a mother etc does excite me....her own "Ray Of Light" in a more radio-friendly/R&B direction perhaps. But i do hope she mixes it up a fair bit though as i like the more kinda experimental flavours 4 has.

I love whatever Beyoncé does whether it's safe/commercial or out of the box and experimental. I do see her next album being mainly safe, but I hope for experimental tracks and her daring side to be explored somewhere on the record. I can only assume the lack of up-tempo's on 4 was because they were deemed too experimental by her label in the Run the World direction, which is a shame cause I love it when Beyoncé is up-tempo with killer choreography.

Hoping we get more producers mentioning album 5 to give us early hints to her new direction. Obviously Beyoncé is at her happiest time in her life with Blue Ivy in her life, marriage going well so that will be at the forefront of the theme for her next album. Perhaps big uplifting, empowering numbers?

Beyonce: Heavens Child perhaps could be a title?

The Beyonce In Heaven World Tour? Hmmm

Anyway...Yes i do personally hope she mixes it up a bit really because I really admired her for what she did with 4 so much so that what i didnt rate her for before i really was "woah she can do THIS!" with her 4 album, like beforehand while she had some corker hits, she never had a full functional album IMO let alone something considered "great" by a landmile (though Bday did come so close) but with 4 there was a consise simple concept...a journey of love, the rises, the challenges, the falls and the dayyymn right nassteeeeh :cool:;) so with this maybe it will show her in a more euphoric state, with some uptempos (to get her moving) focus a lot on sounds that inspired her too and really work herself with that, she has her core fanbase and she has casual listeners from her glasto, 4 promotional campaign (like myself) who want to see where musically she can take it next.

I would love to see where she goes Musically. I do not want another "too commericial" type album like Sasha Fierce. I want something along the lines of the epicness of 4 or perhaps going back to her Urban roots like Dangerously In love or Bday.

Oh most definitely...if her album is anything like IASF i am out of here :mad::sleep:

Bday and DIL are solid enough albums...not all round great but some album tracks were as strong as some singles on both. But i do want something as you say that mixes up the Urban Pop of her solo beginnings, some experimental and emotive sides like 4 and push it forward.

MCA1992 14-02-2012 17:43

Allegedly Beyoncé is now working on TWO new albums! Whaaaaaaaaaat? I'd much rather she focussed on one at a time. Unless one of the albums is the soundtrack for A Star Is Born or she's doing a Robyn Body Talk approach with a Part 1, Part 2 etc. Or a commercial album and an experimental album? Excited for whatever it is! That woman is unstoppable

Well Janelle Monae is working on two albums for this year too :cool:

Maybe if she is one will reflect her motherhood, something fresh, euphoric, commercial friendly 11 songs or so for later this year...and next year maybe she will be a Half Time show performer for the SUper Bowl and launch an album like Madonna is doing this year with MDNA, an album that will be experimental, darker, influenced and retrospective and then tour in support in the summer.

The other likelihood is, she is working on a fifth studio album and a soundtrack to A Star Is Born.

Oooh so she's in talks about a new album? Can't wait to here more.

I wouldn't mind a few club bangers from this album, mixed with 4 and some horns (gotta have some Deja Vu/End of Time/Crazy In Love sounds in there)

I really don't mind what direction she goes in. I hope that whatever she decides to do that she will get critically praised. It's obvious that this album will need to do better commercially, so it'll be interesting to see what happens and what direction they go in.

Well i do certainly hope she takes time recording too and gets herself really fit again for the album etc. As the demand to see ehr live on tour will be massive than ever surely by that point album number 5 is out.

And i do really hope that she does create songs that attract many different levels really. What i loved about 4 was its simplicity and its sense of a journey which really surprised me...as I once never thought twice about her and 4 then became one of THE albums of 2011 for me.....that was such a pull! :eek::cool:

So I think with her longer term fans, casual fans and newer listneers from the 4 era (still going with End Of Time?) I do hope that her next album will somehow channel different vibes and tastes but continues that sense of pace and journey like 4.

Best thing I never had is quite a song. Blu Ivy is very cute, looks just like her mother. I must say that Beyonce has got back into shape really quickly.
