Because for me that's just opinions.
For example: on the other day around here on atrl, Alexis Jordan CD was sooo shaded and people weere like saying the album is a dissapointment, while I think it's an incredible album. For me, what critics/people say doesnt influence me
✦ Kelis ✦ Natalia Kills ✦ Dawn Richard ✦ The Saturdays ✦ Nelly Furtado ✦ Cassie ✦ Kelly Rowland ✦ Crystal Waters ✦ Dannii Minogue ✦ Sophie Ellis-Bextor ✦ Kerli ✦ Trish ✦ Petra Marklund ✦Liberty X ✦ Lady Gaga
They help me find out new music, as some ppl said in this thread before. They are quite knowledgeable and usually have valid opinions about what is great or ****, even when I disagree with them. They don't get paid for nothing after all!
Why would we need to rely on stranger's opinions to like our fave?
That is not really the question though.
Critical acclaim is just like everything stans brag about so much but nobody irl really cares that much.
Do sales matter? Do #1s? Do #1 albums? Do tour grosses matter? Does Forbes matter?

Approaching a song rhythmically, rather than melodically, is something synonymous with Beyonce/DC and probably her claim to fame in respects to the question being posed.Of course CIL pretty much popularized "Go-Go" in popular music. The only other notable "Go-Go" song prior to CIL is "Doin' The Butt", and that was 1988.
An argument could be made that Beyonce is the one who popularized the heavy Urban/Hip-Hop driven backing with R&B outside of the US. "Deja Vu", "Drunk In Love" (in time), and CIL just to name a few.
