I Am....

Pinned Image
A favourite quote of mine!


This one goes out to two of my very best friends, who I spent a lot of my day with yesterday - laughing, eating, sipping and enjoying the unseasonal sunshine. They are both very well-versed in the world of Beyonce and all that she does - and although I certainly have a whack of respect for the Queen Bee as an artist and have a few tunes on my iPod, I wouldn't say I know very much about her discography. Can the woman dance and sing like an icon? Yes, that's a given. But what I didn't know, was that her second last two-disc album, I Am...Sasha Fierce, possesses one side (I Am...) of introspective and emotional slow-tempo songs, and another side (Sasha Fierce) of more boisterous mainstream dance tracks that her alter ego and stage persona would put forward. Like the rest of the population who are merely acquainted with Knowles, I had heard the typical Top 40 dance tracks, seen the videos, tapped my toes and more - but until yesterday, I had never heard the raw and revealing tracks from her more sincere disc. Take a listen - perhaps you'll be as floored as I was at the beautiful intimacy and reflectiveness heard in these gorgeous tracks.

Thanks for the education, ladies - you've turned me on to a new side of her outstanding music.
