Those that know me know that I curse like a truck driver (something that I need to work on). I don’t mind when people curse much less when I hear it in songs. Therefore people making a fuss of Beyonce’s singing “b*#tches” in her new song “Bow Down/ I Been On” doesn’t phase me at all. What does get me a bit p*ssed off is the song in general. I thought by the title it was going to be a sexy and empowering song geared towards men on how we “run the world,” but it wasn’t. The only good thing about this song is the beat. Don’t believe me? Take a look–[Verse 1] I know when you were little girls
You dreamt of being in my world
Don’t forget it, don’t forget it
Respect that, bow down bitches
I took some time to live my life
But don’t think I’m just his little wife
Don’t get it twisted, get it twisted
This my shit, bow down bitches
Conceited much!? Thanks for shoving it on our faces that many of us won’t be living the glamorous life with fake bellies and all.[Bridge] Bow down bitches, bow bow down bitches
Bow down bitches, bow bow down bitches
H-town bishes, h-h-town bishes
I’m so crown, bow bow down bitches
Why am I bowing down to you exactly? What have you done for me lately?[Verse 2] Rolling high, leather and louis
Keep it trill, that’s what good
Kiss my momma, show that love
Pop them bottles in that club
I heard your boo was talking lip
I told my crew to smack that trick
Smack that trick, smack that trick
Guess what they did, smack that trick
So now instead of us women empowering one another you’re saying it’s okay to smack a trick? And aren’t tricks called prostitutes? Whores? Women of the night? Jeez Bey, what the hell!? Even if you’re calling men tricks why are you supporting violence?
When it comes to Beyonce I’ve always been 50/50. Amazing voice? Of course! Her music? Gets very played out after 5 plays. As a person? Don’t know her just the persona she portrays in the media and who knows if that’s even her.
The persona she portrays is exactly why many people are also upset with her song. When has anyone ever heard Beyonce curse? Don’t think ever. She has always lived a life of a beauty queen so it’s very out of character to now want to portray someone else. I mean come on you’re not Rihanna!
Little birdies all around the media outlets have stated Beyonce’s album is no longer going to be released in a few weeks instead it’s going to be pushed back until fall. Yikes.
