All Hail Queen Bee

Review on Beyoncé's latest album "Beyoncé"

"Self-Titled": Part 1. The Visual Album

Introduction


Once again, Beyoncé did not fail satisfying her fans. After listening to the album “Beyoncé” for the first time, I was glad to hear a difference in Beyonce’s music. In her upbeat songs such as “Flawless” and “Yoncé”, she truly showed the world a different side of her, and showed that she is Queen B.

Artist Background

Beyonce first appeared in the R&B girl group Destiny’s Child, but rose to stardom when she released her first solo album “Dangerously in Love”. She has won a total of 17 Grammy’s.

Album Review

Between “Beyoncé” and “I am…. Sasha Fierce”, Beyonce has changed the way she creates her music. Not only did she add more collaborations with artists such as Frank Ocean, Drake, and Nicki Minaj, but has even had her daughter Blue Ivy do a cameo in her song “Blue”. Every song tells a different story and gives us a piece of Beyoncé that we have not seen.

Impressions

The songs “Flawless” and “Pretty Hurts” sends a great message to women all over the world. She explains how women have had enough on being treated unfairly in society, and that it is time to take action. Along with her inspiring music, Beyoncé changed her album making by releasing her first “visual album. The album includes 17 music videos that each show apart of her life.


Overall Recommendation

For Beyoncé’s creativity in her music, I truly believe that she deserves a 5 out of 5 for showing the world a different side of her, and claiming her crown as queen.
