Beyonce! Go To Your Destiny!

Is it just me or are Bee songs sounding the same? They are! She's using the same producers as everyone else. The same retread beats rammed down our throats by corporate radio. She's not stretching her work. Are her videos starting to look just like.....the

Whew! Thought it was just me.

Bee, listen dear heart. Years ago a reviewer in Murderdog Magazine peeped your first solo joint. I, now quote that reviewer.

"Bee, it's time for you to stop Effing with these Hip Hop Knukkas and go to your destiny! Your Destiny is Patty Labelle, Chaka Khan, Gladys Knight! "

In other words, my dear, you have got to go get some real songwriters and some real songs. Your competition is using the same slang, same dance moves, and producers and guess what? They may not be as talented, but they're younger, and there's alot of them. You, unlike some of your competition have Talent! Can't Fake Talent!

Go to your destiny! The alternative is being like Miss Jackson! She should be as big as Madonna. Should be!

But alas....Miss Jackson has been copied, stolen from and the competition were Babies when she assembled her Rhythm Nation. But hey she's a great looking 45 year old! Trying to sound hip for a bunch of 15 and 20 year olds.

Go to Your Destiny!

BE Mindful! BE Prayerful! BE Careful!

i mean Leona is a multi platinum singer, and she just rose to fame like yesterday!
Bey is playing safe, with the same old, same old. it might be selling, but it won't get her where she wants to be.... TOP!

She is a big star. No doubt about it. She has star quality. She is talented and professional. With the exception of 'Crazy In Love', her uptempo material is poor! 'Irreplaceable' and 'If I Were A Boy' are great compositions but, in general, her songs are forgettable. Who the hell is gonna sing 'Check On It' in the Karaoke bar?

this is right on! great post

i was wondering if anyone else noticed...i didn't really see a need to buy the new album for this reason

I wish whatever she was doing for the first album, she would repeat it.

Well, when you're trying to stay current in this bullshit industry, one has to do what the Old White Men who run the record companies deem profitable.


Hey Mr. Jaycee, long time no see... I jumped off (never really boarded) the Bee bandwagon a long time ago... too commercial.... there are too many other young TALENTED promising songstress'

take Chrissette Michelle's albulms.... love them.... and she hasn't even pimped herself out to the mainstream junkies yet...

Bee needs a new manager...aka Not her Daddy

The Old White Dude's are not writing weak couplets like A DIVA is another name for a Hustla. No, that's just bad, uninspired writing.

Plus as an artist how long will you allow yourself to compete with inferior competition? Ciara, does not have Bee's vocal ability, Cassie doesn't have much vocal talent. Rhianna does have talent and Latoya Luckett lets face it. She has bonafide talent which is what I believe is the real reason Matthew Knowles ousted her from Destiny's Child. Can't have two pretty Ladies, with Body that can sing and not have problems.

Hi Mista Jaycee!

Good point. Bee and music, in general, has become way too commercial. And yes I agree, all her stuff is sounding and looking like the same ole' same ole'.
More and more, I find myself turning the radio off and listening to Pandora or tuning into one of the local college run member supported stations.
