    I’m not saying Bowie just because he died. That album is pretty amazing. Highly recommend it.

    Beyoncé herself has never won an Emmy, though.

    I prefer Beyonce’s music prior to “Single Ladies” and I wish she would return to her more Pop/R&B roots of those previous albums.

    Didn’t really think much of this album. It’s actually pretty boring. Beyonce is just not my cup of tea.

    I’ve come around on Lemonade. Its her most raw album to date. I’ve gained more respect for her as an artist. She was such a manufactured pop star until she put out 4 and started putting her own story into her music.

    I agree with smurty11. Even though this praise for the album feels more like propaganda, I feel like Beyoncé has proven herself to be more than just a pop star or a songstress who makes R&B music. She has been improving her craft since 4 and doesn’t seem interested in chasing pop success anymore. That’s a sing of a legend, tbh.

    I applaud Beyoncé for taking musical risks on each album since 4. Sometimes, I do miss the “booty-shaking” songs she’s known for.

    I posted this on the Adele thread, but it belongs here as well. Adele really loves Beyonce.

    It may have been stated elsewhere but ALL 12 of Lemonade’s songs charted in this week’s Billboard Hot 100. Most notably FOUR SONGS IN THE TOP 20! Slay, kween.

    #10: “Formation
    #11: “Sorry”

    #13: “Hold Up”

    #18: “6 Inch”

    Finally got around listening to Lemonade, and yep, I really do think it’ll be Adele vs Beyonce with Beyonce having the ‘nominated a bunch of times so it’s her time’ edge. Favorite is 6inch, Hold Up, Daddy Lessons, and Freedom. Much more cohesive than ‘Beyonce’ but still… why so much co-writers/producers for every song? That’ll kinda work against her sadly.

    I still prefer her self-titled album. It’s one of my favorite albums of the decade. It could have used some editing, but it still contains many of her best songs. However, this has grown on me. It’s sonically and of course thematically interesting. But it’s lyrically pretty lacking. When you’re trying to go for something “deep” spewing well-worn idioms just won’t do. Cliches suffocate some otherwise solid songs (“Daddy Lessons”, “Love Drought”). Ending the album with “Formation” was kind of a mistake imo.

    The overwhelming acclaim is definitely driven by politics and peer pressure. However, it’s a good effort. And it’s a good sign for a huge pop star to constantly look to evolve her sound. Hopefully Adele will be inspired not do another weepy, achingly mawkish, safe boring album next time around (that was unness shade I know).

    Seeing her finally win AOTY would be cute. I really don’t care about the Grammys. But it would be to see.

    “Sorry”, “Hold Up”, “Freedom” and “Daddy Lessons” sound like singles to me and in that order. Don’t get the pushing of “6 Inch” though it’s a solid song.

    Really wish Daddy Lessons wasn’t so overproduced because it had a lot of potential. This is more “Beyonce attempting country music” than a country song. It’s not genuine. The “Texas! Texas!” at thr beginning and especially the super annoying “woo-hoo!” falsettos that keep repeating in the background throw me off.
