One thing’s for sure, Solange has a hit with this one!

BEYONCÉ – the visual album is out

Bey1-300x225

Who’s the boss of this mother? It’s Queen Bey… I honestly feel like her, Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake are on another level. They are the epitome of what it means to lead and not follow. They do things on their own terms and continue to innovate, create and be unique and that is why they are arguably the biggest and the best in the game. Just take Beyoncé and her antiques today for example. There has been a lot of speculation about when she will release new material. There have been singles here and there but nothing official has been announced. While most artists do a lot of pre-album promotion, Beyoncé just went ahead and dropped her new album today. It’s an audio-visual spectacle that portrays and depicts the space she found herself in creatively, while making this album. Some might see this as arrogant, but I think she is a genius. Her legions of fans idolise her and she knows she has a winner with this one. BIG UP!

WOW!!!! That is all I can say. There aren’t many people who can just go and drop a new album with promotion and still manage to cause a stir on social media and in the media, but that Ms Beyoncé Knowles- Carter did.

14 songs, 17 videos… All for the price of $15.99 on iTunes… and you know this album is going to Fllllllllyyyy off the shelves and hit the top of the charts. It’s also extremely smart of her to do ahead of the holiday season. Incredible. By the way, iTunes temporarily crashed thanks to Mrs Carter’s surprise 😉 You’ll hear Drake, Jay, Frank Ocean and the cutest little contribution from Blue Ivy. There’s also an awesome track that Beyoncé does with Nigerian writer, Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche too. Here’s the official track listing:

 

1. Pretty Hurts
2. Haunted
3. Drunk in Love (Featuring Jay Z)
4. Blow/Cherry
5. Angel
6. Yoncé/Partition
7. Jealous
8. Rocket
9. Mine (Featuring Drake)
10. XO
11. Flawless (Featuring Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie)
12. Superpower (Featuring Frank Ocean)
13. Heaven
14. Blue (Featuring Blue Ivy)

News on Timberlake’s new album

Beyonce’s hair gets caught in a fan

Who is the ultimate music performer in your eyes? In my opinion, it’s Mrs. Carter aka Beyonce Knowles… She’s incredible. Just look at what she has done, achieved and managed to pull off in her career. Well if you weren’t convinced up to my previous sentence, you really should be after this next one. We’ve got to give her props for this one now. The star recently got ‘acquainted’ with one of the concert fans – and no, I’m not talking about the human versions. You can see how it all goes down in the clip above and in true Beyonce style, the star kept calm, kept singing while her team scrambled to help her out! Beyonce #TheUltimate!

Justin Timberlake’s The 20/ 20 Experience – 2 Of 2 is coming

Justin Timberlake fans (me included), you’ll be stoked to hear that JT will be releasing The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2 on the 30th of September. The first single off that album is called “Take Back The NIght”. With this soulful, funky track, the star has once again teamed up with Timbaland and Jerome “J-Roc” Harmon. You can listen to it above… Warning, your foot will tap to this track! If it doesn’t well… sorry for you 😉

If you’re a die-hard, you can pre-order the album on the iTunes Store. Just go to itunes.com/JT. You can also get the The 20/20 Experience – The Complete Experience, which has all 21 tracks from Mr. Timberlake. Look out for a special surprise from Justin on this one. “I originally recorded a massive amount of material and decided on the 20 tracks that I wanted on the album over a year ago. But, when I was mixing and going through all of the songs there were so many that I loved – I couldn’t resist… I had to throw in something extra on the 2nd half.”

Want more from Justin now? Check out his latest video for the track, Tunnel Vision:

There’s also an absolutely awesome track from him and Jay-Z out too. It’s called Holy Grail and holy moley is it awesome!! Listen below:

I’m desperate to get my hands on Jigga’s Magna Carta Holy Grail album, but I’ve forgotten my stupid security questions on iTunes and it’s not as easy to reset them as one would expect. If you have any tips, holler!
