All Hail The Queen.
A press release? Negro please. It’s a brand new day. And with #newrules in full swing, Mrs. Carter employed the element of surprise to release her fifth solo album, BEYONCÉ. The self-titled project bids adieu to the girl next door and introduces us to an unapologetic grown ass woman.
Bey explores her sexuality on the intoxicating “Drunk In Love” , “Blow”, and “Partition”. On the latter, she sings “He popped all my buttons, and he ripped my blouse/He Monica Lewinsky’d all on my gown.”
But Bey ain’t all raunch. She mends broken hearts on “XO”, all the while, reinforcing her own (“Mine”). Girl power is still high on Bey’s priority list and she empowers her core with the anthemic, “Flawless”. Got damn, got damn, Yoncé does it again. —Big Homie
