When life gives Yoncé lemons…
She makes Lemonade!
By now you all know Beyoncé dropped “Lemonade” as her 6th solo album on April 23.
She dropped the visuals and album on Tidal and immediately this album was the only thing everyone was talking about! The surprise-factor & the dark undertone in the visuals/music and lyrics made lovers and haters speculate…
“Are Jay-Z and Beyoncé splitting up?” – “Did Jay-Z cheat on her?” –
“Has this anything to do with the fit Solange threw in the elevator?”
Personally I think B is just a smart businesswoman, because she always kept her personal life very private. Which for me means that this album is supposed to create fuss, make people speculate so that everyone wants to hear it. Even if you’re not a fan… pretty smart don’t you think? 😉
I for one am a big fan of Queen B so I was very excited to receive this album in my mailbox!
Thank you x 1000 sweethearts at Walkie Talkie! ❤
So about Lemonade; I really love this album!!!
I have it on repeat almost everyday since I got it, and I can’t get enough.
Did Jay-Z cheat on B? – songs:
– Pray You Catch Me
“You can taste the disonesty, it’s all over your breath”
– Hold Up
“What’s worse, lookin’ jealous or crazy?”
– Don’t Hurt Yourself (ft Jack White)
“Who the fuck do you think I am? You ain’t married to no average b*tch boy!”
– Love Drought
“Ten times out of nine, I know you’re lying”
Emotional breakdown (?) – songs:
“Dishes smashed on my counter from our last encounter”
– Forward (ft James Blake)
“Go back to your sleep in your favorite spot just next to me”
– All Night
“Give you some time to prove that I can trust you again”
Nobody messes with Queen B – songs:
“Middle fingers up, put them hands high, Wave it in his face, tell him, boy, bye!”
– 6 Inch (ft The Weeknd)
“Oh boy,I’ll make you feel, you always come back to me”
– Daddy Lessons
“My daddy warned me about men like you, He said baby girl he’s playing you”
– Freedom (ft Kendrick Lamar)
“I’ma keep running ’cause a winner don’t quit on themselves”
“Always stay gracious, best revenge is your paper”
And that’s how you make Lemonade 😉 I can’t tell you which songs are my favorite because I love all of them! Each song has such strong lyrics and contribution to this album.
Anyway, it’s safe to say Beyoncé always remains Queen B. Whether these rumors about her and Jay-Z are true or not, she is a true powerwoman.
She’ll be performing these songs in her Formation Wold Tour, and she’s coming to Belgium as well!
Sadly enough I don’t have tickets to go 😦 so y’all better send me video’s or something 😉
I’ll be enjoying me another Lemonade… 😉
PS: Who has this album (and what do you think of it?) and/or is going to her concert?
I think everyone knows Sia… or her music at least!
Sia is known for her amazing voice and not showing her face during performances.
She says it’s about the music and the feeling the music gives you, not about the artist itself.
And as much as I like to drool over Justin, Timberlake or Bieber (whatever you like 😉 ), I can understand what she means. She’s also a talented song-writer and wrote hits like Diamonds performed by Rihanna. Sia says she has seen what being a celebrity has done to other artists and that she wants to remain a certain sense of just being “normal”. By creating this mystery she can still go to the supermarket without people recognizing her.
Instead she created a brand. The blond wig is very recognizable and it can be used in many different ways… on an other woman, a man even a dog if it has to 😉
Kinda smart, don’t you think?
last Saturday I was invited to go to the Walk The Moon concert at Trix (Antwerp)!
“Oh don’t you dare look back, just keep your eyes on me, I said you’re holding back,
she said SHUT UP AND DANCE WITH ME!”
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had this song on repeat! 😀
So of course needless to say I was really excited about this invitation! To be honest I didn’t know any other songs of them… I decided I wanted to be surprised and so I didn’t go through YouTube researching. 😉
This past holiday season Sony Music had something really fun in store for us bloggers!
#SonyMusicSanta was like an estafette, 30 albums were ready to be given away. But they weren’t just going to be handed out… One blogger got an album and had to choose one to give to another blogger, something like secret Santa 😉
Lucky me was surprised by the lovely miss Elfi de Bruyn from Glam At Heart!
She chose Little Mix – Get Weird for me, how did she now I LOVE Little Mix?!
I think the message behind this was pretty clear: get weird, stay weird 😉
I love Elfi and her happy vibes, she always manages to make me smile 🙂 So thanks again for this wonderful present babe!
