There are times where a duet can be absolutely surprising. Although there haven't been many good ones these past few years, some of them have worked well. Beyonce has shown a surprise or two with duets, adn her latest one is definitely so far her best. Beautiful Liar, her collaboration with Shakira is so far her best song yet. The song is very upbeat, and really brings out a seductive tune that is just electrifying. Although Beyonce is a bit overdone, this is definitely a good song for any die hard fan, or anyone who love the beat. This one does seduce well, but it isn't a liar.

I've been enamored of the Columbian singer-songwriter, musician, record producer, dance, and actress (quite a pedigree) Shakira for about a month now soaking up everything I can listen to and watch by her. That includes 2007's "Beautiful Liar" a single featuring the both the Columbian bombshell and the ever beautiful and energetic Beyonce Knowles.

The cut was released as a single with Beyonce taking top billing. The (CD) single features the 3:21 minute song and the 3:16 minute instrumental, which quite frankly I enjoy as much as the single.

"Beautiful Liar" was produced with the assistance of hot production team out of Norway, Stargate, which is responsible for such diverse hits as Rihanna's Unfaithful, Lionel Richie's I Call it Love and Beyonce's Irreplaceable. Songwriting duties fell to the team of Amanda Ghost (a co-songwriter of James Blunt's You're Beautiful) and Ian Dench.

The results: while "Beautiful Liar" finds a comfortable musical blend (the strings featured in a Middle Eastern breakdown near the end of the song are especially beautiful) of Beyonce's contemporary hip hop soul and Shakira's Latin and Middle Eastern percussion inspired brew, lyrically the song didn't work for me. This is mostly due to the fact that both Beyonce and Shakira's vocals--neither of which are very powerful--are lost in the heavy backbeats; i.e. I could only understand one in about ten words!

Be that as it may, "Beautiful Liar" is hard to resist because it so musically infectious. And the video is not to be missed! Both Beyonce and Shakira are stunningly beautiful woman and the two of them in the same video is a visual treat not to be missed.

So, while "Beautiful Liar" is lyrically suspect, the song is musically on queue and ultimately enjoyable!

This has the version - Freemason's remix - I was looking for. Makes the whole single worth having! The others are fine, but track 3 is smokin'!
