Video Review: Beyoncé, ‘7/11’


tumblr_nff1jjsqLP1sk0vqbo2_250Beyoncé
 has captured me, and all of social media, with the release of her video ‘7/11’ last night (11/21). I had heard a snippet of the song earlier in the week and I was like eh, it’s alright. This is why videos need to never go away because THIS video MADE the song for me.

Beyoncé is no stranger to acting silly and this song is even more turnt with her showing that side of herself. This low budget video is really EVERYTHING! She starts with dancing not he balcony in undies & a sweatshirt. Throughout the whole video she really is dancing here and there in her underwear. I mean who doesn’tt do that?

Sidebar- If you’re saying you don’t go around your house dancing in your underwear, you’re probably lying,

Back to the video. It’s hard to explain because words do not do justice to all the energy in this video. She’s doing what everyone does on the regular when their favorite song comes on. Or, if you made up some random song with your friends and you jam out to it whenever you can. That’s the vibe I get from this video. This is not to be a deep song and it shows that Beyonce can have fun too and not all her songs have to be serious.

I don’t see her as degrading herself, ruining her career, or setting a bad example as a mother. Just because she is a mom does not mean she has to turn off her fun button. She’s not endangering her child so twerking around is not the end of the world. Yes in one scene there is Blue Ivy on the bed, but with the reversal of the editing she had jumped off the bed and not jumped on the bed with Blue on it. Speaking of that scene. Props to the hotel room not being tidy for the video. Yes, celebrities are HUMAN. They throw their clothes everywhere too.

Screen-Shot-2014-11-22-at-00.30.18I love when her friends join in and get just as crunk as she is. This song is on HEAVY rotation and will be on the re-release of her self-titled albums which drops monday, 11/24. READ HERE for full details on that. Expect to hear this on urban radio soon. I’m still trying to figure out if that was Jay running by at the end of the video.

Cheers to what ever else Queen Bey has in store for 2015. Keep spinning while your hands up & don’t you drop that alcohol.

Check out the video below:

Lil’ Kim Picks [ANOTHER] Fight With Nicki Minaj?

For those who haven’t heard the ‘Flawless (Remix)’, CLICK HERE to do so.

So Nicki Minaj has finally teamed up with Beyonce and here’s what she spit that Lil’ Kim too OFFENSE to (insert side eye emoji).

These bitches washed up and ain’t no fuckin’ soap involved, uh/This every hood nigga dream, fantasizing about Nicki and B/Curvalicious, pussy served delicious
Mayday mayday, earth to bitches/Slap these hoes on they ass like we birthing bitches, uh/The queen of rap, slayin’ with Queen B

lil-kim-flawless-remixThe “Remix Reloaded” is the ENTIRE remix except at the end of Nicki’s bars Lil Kim jumps on sounding extemely bitter.  She did have bars though.

Am I trippin’ or did this ho just say my name? / Queen of rap, fuck outta here / Queen’s back, fuck outta here / Time to get this rap bitch up outta here/I woke up like this, fuck outta here/I’m so awesome, I’m so fuckin’ awesome/These hoes wanna be me cause they know Kimmy, she flawless

…..
I gave you the rope, bitch, I want you to hang
….

 

Is Lil Kim really back, I doubt that. Queen’s back? Okay. Hey, we’re all adults, let’s pick fights to get back in the limelight. Right?

At this current moment Nicki Minaj is the QUEEN of rap. In Lil’ Kim’s day she felt that way too. I don’t say ‘day’ to date her, but Lil’ Kim hasn’t been relevant musically in my eyes since ‘The Jump Off’, but she did have ‘Lighters Up’ so that counts to. Then again, that was nearly a decade ago. I really think she’s too into her feelings and she just won’t let the “beef” with Nicki Minaj go. Nicki Minaj has NO COMPETITION right now and she hasn’t in years. Beyonce says she’s Queen Bey all the time, does that mean all the legends before her in the R&B/Pop world have to pick a fight with her? I don’t see Mary J. Blige coming for Beyonce. Mary J. has been dubbed the Queen of Hip-Hop/R&B so why not attack Beyonce for calling her self Queen? Simple, she knows her lane. Knowing your lane is no disrespect, but the artist is not attacking you and naming you so move on. Lil Kim has made a name for herself sometimes more negatively than positively, but this “remix” is so beneath her and so petty it’s ridiculous. The imagination has run wild.

The blogs are really hyping this one up. Seriously Lil’ Kim, sit down. This was not needed nor was it wanted if you were going to do all this for no reason. Petty, so damn petty. Giving credit where credit is DUE, Kim still has bars this just wasn’t it for me.

As for that artwork, just stop it. It’s not like this was a staged remix. If Bey wanted Kim on the track she would’ve called her. She didn’t so, yeah.

In the meantime, who won the battle? Nicki or Kim? lol.

I guess this is the closet fans will get to Nicki & Kim being on a track. Take a listen below:

 

HBO Presents…. On The Run

 

I recently blogged about Beyoncé and Jay Z heading to HBO, this time as a duo to showcase their latest feat and biggest collaboration to date, The ‘On The Run’ Tour. The show just finished up in Jersey at MetLife Stadium (7.11/7.12) and is heading West. The show finishes in the states August 6th and the HBO special will be filmed during their two day stint (9.12/9.13) in Paris at State de France. This is their only international stop on the tour.

In the 25 second teaser, it quickly shows the emotion of the tour. Quick clip of the couple holding hands. Flash Beyonce, flash Jay Z, flash On the Run. There you have it. It’s coming in September. No official air date just yet.

Check the trailer below:

‘On The Run’ Heads to HBO

beyonce-jay-z-on-the-run-tour

Beyonce and Jay Z are no strangers to HBO with their previous projects so what better platform to showcase their latest collab than that of HBO. It has confirmed that Beyonce and Jay Z’s ‘On The Run’ tour will be documented via HBO this September. HBO programming president, Michael Lombardo, stated:

“This is a major musical event that belongs on HBO. It’s going to be a night to remember.”

Beyonce currently has her docu-series, ‘Beyonce: X10’, which encompasses the days of her latest tour along with her highly rated ‘Life Is But a Dream’ which aired in 2013. Jay Z is no stranger either as he aired his documentary, ‘Picasso Baby: A Performance Art Film’ in August of 2013.

The concert special will be shot during the international leg of their tour, September 12th and 13th, at State De France in Paris. It will feature the dynamic duo performing over 40 songs.

With the ‘On The Run Tour’ wrapping up in the states at the end of next month, this announcement gives fans the opportunity to view a show at such a high caliber, granted they have HBO.

TRAILER — Jay Z x Beyoncé, ‘Run’

UntitledJay Z and Beyoncé have somewhat released their video for their latest duet “Part II (On The Run)”. After weeks of pictures being posted from the video shoot, here’s the product. In the nearly four minute video, the couple take Bonnie & Clyde to the next level with a cinematically with a star studded cast: Sean Penn, Don Cheadle, Guillermo Díaz, Emmy Rossum, Jake Gyllenhaal, Blake Lively, Rashida Jones, and Kidada Jones. It looks like it would be a GREAT movie then too bad at the end it says:

COMING NEVER

Well what is coming is a long awaited and highly anticipated tour between these two. The “On The Run Tour” kicks
off June 25th in Miami and ends August 5th in San Francisco. Hopefully, maybe, fingers crossed they’ll add a few more dates.
