B' Day for Bizness Day,
This review is from: B'Day (Audio CD)
It's kinda hard to guess what was Beyoncé's intention when she handed this project to her label. B'Day was done in 2 weeks and it reflects in the quality of this album. Beyoncé has won 9 grammies, she played movies, she has a clothing line and she's involded in many business transactions which makes it easy to immagine the energy she spent to get to the top, plus she's still very young. Anyway, with all these accolades and blessings in her life, it looks like she lost that appetite for excellence ... Don't let me forget her duet with Luther "The closer I get to you" plus the entire dangerously in love"...
Well, I'd disappear for 7 years like Dr Dre and come back with a masterpiece rather than just droping this crap called B'Day . It's as if she just wanted to honer a contract obligation with her record. Please be giving at least 70% of your best to your loyal fans (not 20%)!!
Beyoncé is talented and she should have taken her time and not just plan to fool her fans by realising a poor album manufactured in 14 days even if the production team had given it some nice beats but this is not Hip Hop, it's soul music although none of the 10 tracks hasn't really touched mine. I trashed B'Day and I'm back to the meaningful RnB with Aretha Franklin or Nathalie Cole coz am becoming disappointed with artists who get platinum sales because of their names. Deja vu was poorly done coz they knew the casting itself was enough suited to take it to the top of the music charts!
When an artist looses that passion for perfectionism, the magic gets lost too. I hope Alicia Keys won't do the same mistake with her coming project!! I'm also happy to see Whitney Houston back after her divorce with Bobby. I'm impatient to see her working with Babyface again to bring back those great days when music was an ART and not just business. Maybe she is our chance to save RnB from artificial materials!
