The Official Beyoncé Thread

Queen B's 1st Thread



Beyoncé Giselle Knowles (born September 4, 1981) is an American R&B singer-songwriter, record producer, and actress. Knowles rose to fame in the late 1990s as the lead singer of girl group Destiny's Child , the best-selling girl group of all time. After a series of commercial successes with the group, Knowles released her debut solo album, Dangerously in Love, in June 2003 and her sophomore solo album, B'Day, in 2006. The success of her solo albums has established Knowles as one of the most marketable artists in the industry. She has added acting and endorsement deals to her repertoire. In 2006, she starred in the comedy film The Pink Panther, and, in the same year, scored the main role in the film adaptation of the 1981 Broadway musical Dreamgirls, which earned her a Golden Globe nomination. Knowles launched in 2004 her family's fashion line, House of Deréon, and among her many lucrative commercial deals are Pepsi, Tommy Hilfiger, and L'Oréal. Knowles has been with boyfriend Jay-Z since 2002, though they have been discreet about their relationship. After much speculation, they married on April 4, 2008.

I Am... is going to be her third solo studio album and is to be released on November 18, 2008. This is a double disc album, representing herself and on-stage persona, Sasha Fierce. The first disc, I Am... Beyoncé, will feature a predominate classic R&B-jazz sound while Fierce's disc, entitled I Am... Sasha, will have a hip-hop-dance vibe. [4] Knowles also plans to release a DVD of music videos for every track in February 2009, along with a Spanish version of "I Am..."

Weird, I was looking for the Beyonce thread last night because I wanted to talk about the new album.

I absolutely love the idea behind it. Concept albums can be amazing, and this one sounds like it will be really great. If I Were A Boy is beautiful and kind of haunting, and Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It) is really catchy. I'm definitely buying I am...

^me to ... IIWAB is such a beautiful ballad ... like Irreplaceble

The idea to release an album like this is pure AWESOMENESS ... you have to
admit that this kind of idea is really unique and I can't wait to hear IIWAB in spanish

good I LOVE IIWAB so much ... the video looked kinda boring at first but the end.
THE END is AMAZING!!!!

This reminds me of the whole T.I. and T.I.P. thing. I got real tired when T.I. did it so I hope Beyonce doesn't over do it with the Split Personality Ordeal.

EDIT: Either way, some nice songs here.

Covers for I am...Sasha fierce.



They look very 90's. I can't believe she is naming her album "I am...Sasha fierce" though. Is she ****ing serious?

Beyonceworld has been reliable in the past so I think so. I can't tell if your reaction is good or bad B'day's deluxe cover was so much better

I dunno ... I'm not really convinced. QUEEN-B is a beauty and we all know that, so
there is nothing wrong with the person on the cover , but the pose on
the "DELUXE" Editon is so so. I dunno. Maybe the'll grow on to me but right now ..

I kinda expected more. Color would be nice. 2 PVs in BLACK and WHITE and than this?

I hope she's not planning to make a statement in doin every PV of this double-album in B/W.
That would be so not good in many MANY reasons.

OMG! Pure Awesomeness! Woot! Siggy time...

-Anyway-

I thought the original name of the album was I Am...? DDD: She was on BET the other day and I believe she said that it was called I Am... =/ Her videos even said "I Am..." Maybe that's a scan of the promo pic of something like that. Either why I like it and I luff the way she's evolved herself with this album. Both singles are really good but Sasha's song is waaaaaaay better then Beyonce's song. I'm definitely buying this album...but I'm gonna wait till the deluxe version comes out. I don't wanna waste money on the first edition knowing that a Deluxe version is gonna come out. Plus, she's doing a video for every single video which is very creative idea coming from an American artist if you get what I mean. lol

Because of the cross above her name.

Do you think she will release the deluxe verison at the same time though? Cause if not she pretty much killed her sales for the first couple weeks..at least with B'day the deluxe version wasn't announced until the original album was out for a few monthes.

I agree that Sasha's song>>>Beyonce's. If I were a Boy sucks

^Nah I htnk she'll release the deluxe in March or April. lol As you know most American artists wait a few months to release their Deluxe versions (ie Justin released the deluxe version of FS/LS a whole year after the original was released). It's very stupid that american companies do that but guess they do it boost sales.

IMO, If I Were A Boy is a ballad version of Ciara's Like A Boy. I liked how the video started off because B looked so beautiful and the words they were speaking to each other was kinda heart-felt to me. lol But yea Sasha definitely blew B out the water with Single Ladies.

I just hope I Am... Beyonce isn't ballad filled while I Am... Sasha is dance filled. =/ I want it to be a mix because I'm not a fan of listening to the same genre-song-every-track. Mix it a lil you know. lol

that's the problem I had with Leona's album ... it was just too much heart-breaking ballads on it that
I kind got sick of the album. I keep my fingers crossed.

^That's one of the main problems I have with American female artists these days. They sing about heartbreak and needing love too much...and it's mostly about the same stuff. It's like, ugh, just because you've had a freak'n bad day...don't make my day bad as well. lol You know, I've never really had a problem with any of Beyonce's ballads tho. Dangerously in Love is her best ballad ever. Ugh, it's so powerful. It makes me wanna cry every time I hear it.

^I think the problem is that THESE songs are the ones the good singers can prove that they can sing.

They can do their UUUHS and AAAHS and scream their lungs out to impress
a bright audience with their voice without being put into a cliche of not being able to sing.

Please, she needs to wait at least 5 more years to put out another album. I'm still sick of her ass since "B'Day".

She is so overexposed it's not even funny. Does she really need to do a Spanish EP, a rerelease that's already planned, a video for every single track on both discs and a 100+ city tour? She is someone that people get sick of easily, she needs to tone it down a notch.

I'm not liking the covers. Why is everything black and white with this release? First the videos and now the covers. I really want some color
