Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic there is one artist who I can truly say has been on consistent repeat. Beyoncé. Why? Because her music is culturally relevant. Black Parade was one of my favorite songs this year. The lyrics are powerfully written and crafted in a way that makes each sound have meaning, have impact. Beyoncé has always had the ability to make you feel immersed in her music. The almost visual experience her music gives is unprecedented. Growing in mastery since 4, her albums are real. Critically acclaimed. You see the hard work.
Undoubtedly, Beyoncé should reign supreme at Grammys 2021. If not with Black Parade then with Savage. Both songs show that Beyoncé surrounds herself with the right people. This is not a game.

She is gifted but her music has gone downhill personally. After BEYONCE, she declined.December 16, 2020 at 9:32 pm #1203926431
Her peak was Lemonade and then she bought her own hype and started being more about being “Beyonce” than being a real artist. Her personality/lifestyle is a total turnoff for me. Even if I bop to Single Ladies @ the club.December 16, 2020 at 9:35 pm #1203926434

Honey, Beyoncé >>> Taylor Swift.December 16, 2020 at 11:01 pm #1203926522
She’s one of the most consistently good mainstream artists out there imo, I feel her next album will be just as good or better than Lemonade.
ROTY: Savage (Remix)

Nah. Her peak was Lemonade and then she bought her own hype and started being more about being “Beyonce” than being a real artist. Her personality/lifestyle is a total turnoff for me. Even if I bop to Single Ladies @ the club.
Lemonade was her last studio album. You don’t even know her to even speak on her personality or lifestyle. She has always released her work, toured, barely promoted, and disappeared. Most artists pull stunts and discount discounted songs to go #1. Not Beyoncé…because doesn’t need her record speaks for itself. Regardless of what you think she’s a legend…can’t say the same for your “fave”. Clearly you have terrible taste and unhealthy hatred or disdain for Beyoncé.December 16, 2020 at 11:29 pm #1203926542
She’s a force in the industry. She’s a legend already. But her latest output has been very lacking. And you don’t need to point out any of the flaws of my apparent “faves” so shush.December 16, 2020 at 11:30 pm #1203926546
Beyoncé’s a legend. She’s simply not on the same level as the other girlies here. Her performances are ALWAYS immaculate like Jesus she knows how to put on a show and she’s been making quality music for so long now. Cant wait for her next album and they better give her the damn AOTY now.December 17, 2020 at 12:52 am #1203926675
Beyoncé is definitely a great artist. But everything after self-titled is overrated IMO.
Lemonade benefitted from strong visuals and multiple narratives that accompanied the era. It’s an iconic album but the best of her career/decade? Nah.
EIL is a complete dud. It did NOT deserve Urban Contemporary Album. Especially over War & Leisure and the wrongfully snubbed Dirty Computer.
The Gift/BIK is a snooze-fest (with the exception of a couple songs). Beyoncé has been riding the BLM, Afrocentric, feminist wave for a while now. She’s also smartly attached herself on big Pop records to maintain relevancy on the charts.
I think B needs to abandon the side projects and reinvent herself. Or call up Kelly & Michelle for a DC reunion. That would be huge.December 17, 2020 at 1:40 am #1203926740
Honey, sick and tired of Beyoncé doing the pseudo/sing-song rap thing. I get that she wants to remain relevant by competing with today’s crappy market. The bitch needs to just sing soulful R&B.December 17, 2020 at 1:54 am #1203926774
Funny how people want to talk shit about a Black woman’s “personality” being an issue when all she’s done is literally release album>Single>tour and rinse wash repeat the last decade. You don’t see her outside of album cycles or promotional projects. She doesn’t overexpose herself. She’s not on twitter/instagram whining or bitching about anything. She’s the consummate professional.
I do wonder what it COULD be about her “personality” that is oh soooo grating to folks.December 17, 2020 at 1:57 am #1203926786
I think she will win 5 Grammys this year and become the most awarded female in history. ROTY is in consideration.December 17, 2020 at 1:57 am #1203926788

Her latest projects served their purpose (all of which were Grammy nominated and critically acclaimed). I don’t need to point out anything, but I did and will continue to so you 🤫 🤐 🗑
