BEYONCE IS DROPPING AN ALL-COUNTRY ALBUM

You heard that right. Beyonce is dropping an album of what are sure to become country music standards.

She is moving in the opposite direction from Taylor Swift, just as comparisons between the two entertainers' legendary statuses begin to captivate the zeitgeist.

I'm here for it! I have been getting into a little country music myself.

The Queen has dabbled in country before most notably with her highly acclaimed Daddy Lessons song from Lemonade and its live performance with the legendary Dixie Chix at the 2016 CMAs. Even songs like Irreplaceable a have a lite country flavor.

Country music started with the banjo, and the banjo is derived from a West African instrument that would never have been popularized if it weren't for the fact that it was imported by black slaves. So there is a credible case for that, R7.

Country music is the whitest music out there. No matter who inventered the banjo, the genre really took hold when hillbillies started yodeling back in the 1920s or so. For further information check out Ken Burns documentary series on country music.

This latest album reeks of Gaga's country attempt. Bey is grasping around and trying to find something that hits as she continues to slide.

Her shtick is getting old: revolving producers; image-heavy product that will translate well for the upcoming cash grab, ahem, tour; forgettable music; meaningless, pseudo-cultural statements (BLM, gay techno, country revival, etc.) mixed in with some navel-gazing, bland relationship lyrics thrown in; with a topping of wall-to-wall PR. None of the albums are cohesive with the ones issued before or whatever Beyonce's image is supposed to be now. She's become a human Cirque du Soleil - enjoyable but empty entertainment for the masses that switches things up every season to keep the $$$ rolling in.

She really should have just gone away for a while to regroup. She was at the very top, pop culture-wise, and now her star has faded (flagging tour sales, the speed in which her tour movie disappeared). The slippage must feel all too real with Taylor's mega year. Some might think they should not be compared as their fanbases mostly do not overlap. But both are vying for the mainstream market opportunities.

by Anonymousreply 56February 12, 2024 7:13 PM

R56 Except these songs have way stronger melodies and hooks. Gaga’s album was more folksy while this is clearly country pop with the Queen’s soulful vocals.

She's so fucking desperate for that "Album Of The Year" Grammy. I wonder how long it took her vast team of writers and producers to come up with this.

Sure, it'll be "I'm a girl from Texas...", but knowing her, will also try to wedge in some preachy, grandiose political and social statement that will turn everyone off AGAIN. If the material is strong enough, it'll stand on its own.

Speaking of which, she should stick to the music, because everything post -"I Am..." has been dreck. And also because she needs to learn how to sing, not warble. But instead, we'll get another try-too-hard concept album. I don't need a history lesson from an out-of-touch high school dropout pop star who allegedly reads as well as she "sings".

I am not a huge Beyonce fan, but she is an icon, a force of commercial and cultural power. This is an interesting move... a little baffling. But most importantly (to me), I listened to them and am astonished how mediocre they are. Meh.

Beyonce hasn't been a commercial force since her self-titled album. It's all been downhill after that. Based on how the press was talking about it, you'd think Renaissance was the biggest album of all time.

R42 It’s retarded to think black people didn’t have an influence in country music.

It’s only because of the internet that blacks are now credited for rock and roll. Same for house music.

They’ve been so whitewashed that blacks were removed from the genres.

In the future, white people will think it’s ridiculous that black people invented hip-hop. They’re already trying to change the narrative that Latinos started it. It’s only a matter of time before hip-hop becomes a white creation.

Country wasn’t always so segregated.

My black grandparents had old country records. There are a few R&B artists from the 60’s and 70’s who recorded country albums or reworked country songs into more rhythmic music for their audiences.

I don’t think it was always a “I hate black people” genre of music.

No it hasn't you idiot. Where do you get your information from, Tik Tok? Rock Around the Clock is considered the first genre song of the rock and roll era. That means on the charts, as well as how it influenced that generation of teenagers into changing their musical tastes.

by Anonymousreply 165February 13, 2024 10:34 PM

As much as I rag on Beyonce's music, I feel bad for her. She was worked like a horse by her father and now she has Jay as her keeper. Even though her music is overhyped, she is an extremely hard worker and a top-notch performer. She should be taking a break after past year of touring. Instead, Jay has her out there again trying to squeeze some more $$$ out of her fans before Beyonce ages completely out of her 'young artist' imagery.

If he doesn't watch it, he is going to make them into a mockery from over exposure. There have already been memes circulating after the Super Bowl about how Jay looks like a grandma. People are shitting all over these two new releases. They need to just go away for a while and preserve whatever mystique they have left. Regroup and come back with some real jams.

I think Joni Mitchell is the standard of "changing styles"... from her first album to Mingus was quite a journey.

but others, beyond those mentioned, have tracked through multiple genres: Katy Perry was a Christian artist before she went pop-dirty. Lana del Rey, Gwen Stefani, Pink, Miley Cyrus, Kelly Clarkson to just mention some in recent years.

Jay-Z drove Def Jam into the ground when he was President and sold it off. He hasn’t had a big album in years either.
