Hold on! Don’t try to slow me down!

After the Grammys, DJ Khaled dropped a new track and it featuring no other than Beyonce and Jay Z!

Definitely different than the vibe Beyonce has been giving lately. Beyonce sings, “Money don’t make me happy, and a fella can’t make me fancy.Smiling for a whole ‘nother reason, all smiles through all four seasons“, in the song she talks about how she has been winning, but not because of the reasons you thinks she is.

Now I’d be lying if I didn’t say, it sounds like they are taking shots at…… someone…..

Petty Petty Petty
I been winning steady
Yonce Yonce Yonce
All up on yo grill lil boy
Poppin off at the mouth, all yeah boy
Came out ’97, Winning 20 years boy

Then Jay Z raps:

I shouldn’t even work back with niggas
12 solo albums, all platinum niggas
…..
I know you aint out here talkin down
Saying boss shit when you a runner right?

So this is what they meant when they said, “I came to slay bitch”

The film, which aired on HBO as a visual accompaniment to Beyoncé album of the same name, is nominated in four categories.

    Outstanding Production Design For A Variety, Nonfiction, Event Or Award Special
    Outstanding Directing For A Variety Special
    Outstanding Picture Editing For Variety Programming
    Outstanding Variety Special

For three of the awards, HBO is listed as the nominee “in association with Parkwood Entertainment,” along with the editor or production designer, etc. But, for the directing award, Beyoncé herself is listed along with the production companies and fellow director, Kahlil Joseph, which means that not only could Beyoncé’s entertainment company take home an award, but the singer could, as well, for her directing work.

Congrats Bey!

It looks like the Beyhive isn’t the only people living for Lemonade. Read some of our favorite reviews below.

Like much of her music over the last few years, the music on “Lemonade” is not made for pop radio. Besides the explicit language, it doesn’t fit into neat categories and boxes, ranging from R&B to a bit of reggae to rock and even a country twang. Paired with its visuals, it’s also elevated, becoming a work of art that has many layers to be dissected; there may well be dissertations planned on it at this moment.

It all speaks to Beyonce’s undisputed role the queen of pop — not of music, but of culture. It’s hard to imagine any other artist who could drop a project in the middle of our national mourning for Prince and still not only get attention for it, but captivate us so. – Yahoo! Music

Whether or not Lemonade is based on real-life events has been the subject of fevered discussion by forensic Beyoncéologists, who are poring over lyrical references, old gossip-blog items, and Instagram posts in order to suss out the album’s real-life news pegs. But figuring out whatever blind items Beyoncé is laying down (on her husband’s platform, no less) is hardly essential to enjoying this album. Its songs feel fresh yet instantly familiar, over-the-top but intimate, with Beyoncé’s clarion voice serving as the fulcrum for her explorations of sound and the self. – Time

“Lemonade” is the kind of album that a star like Beyoncé (as well as, lately, Rihanna) can release in the streaming era because she’s already guaranteed attention for her every utterance. The album is not beholden to radio formats or presold by a single; fans are likely to explore the whole album, streaming every track and hearing how far afield — a brass band, stomping blues-rock, ultraslow avant-R&B — Beyoncé is willing to go. As she did with her 2013 album, “Beyoncé,” she has also paired the music with full-length video that expands and deepens its impact.

On their own, the songs can be taken as one star’s personal, domestic dramas, waiting to be mined by the tabloids. But with the video, they testify to situations and emotions countless women endure. It’s not a divorce announcement; the singer, songwriter and director is credited as Beyoncé Knowles Carter. – New York Times

On Freedom, and indeed for much of Lemonade, Beyonce sounds genuinely imperious. She’s obviously not the only major pop star willing to experiment and push at the boundaries of her sound: that’s clearly what Rihanna and Kanye West were attempting to do on Anti and The Life of Pablo respectively. The difference is that those albums were at best a bold and intriguing mess: the sense that the artists behind them were having trouble marshalling their ideas was hard to escape. Lemonade, however, feels like a success, made by someone very much in control. “This is your final warning,” she scowls on Don’t Hurt Yourself, “if you try this shit again, you lose your wife.” You rather get the feeling Jay Z should heed those words: on Lemonade, Beyonce sounds very much like a woman not to be messed with. – The Guardian

With this album, Beyoncé is telling us that she’s made it this far in spite of the system in place; you know — the overtly sexist, subtly racist one. She was served lemons. And she made the most fire, refreshing, delectable, thirst-quenching lemonade ever known to man. Actually, scratch that — ever known to woman. – NPR

This unofficial remix of the two is making it’s way around the net. I must say, as a fan of both Beyonce and Chris Brown, this is a duet that I have always wished would happen. Until that dream comes true, I’ll just have to make do with this. Check it out below, as the R&B Crooner, Chris Brown, delivers lines like, “Now I’m reminiscing how we fell in love in Texas“.

Beyonce’s last album was packed with star-studded features from the likes of Jay Z, Frank Ocean, Timbaland, Pharrell and more. However, it could be argued that the most important contributions came from an unknown talent: Boots.

The elusive singer/songwriter/producer worked on more than half of the tracks, producing “Haunted,” “Heaven” and “Blue.”

It’s clear there’s a real creative chemistry between Bey and Boots. And that chemistry shows up again on “Dreams,” a just-released track from Boots featuring vocals from the Queen herself.

The smooth song is one of the tracks off Boots’ upcoming mixtape, WinterSpringSummerFall.

Boots worked on many tracks on BEYONCE. One of the songs he didn’t work on, however, was the album opener, “Pretty Hurts.” The song was produced by Ammo (who works with DJ Luke) and was written by Sia.

In a new interview with NYTimes, Sia mentions that Beyonce wasn’t the first one with the song. The track was sent to both Katy Perry and Rihanna. RiRi’s people passed, while the song just got lost in Katy’s email shuffle.
