The Dream is behind this, what happened with the catchy hook? interesting, it reminded me of Alors on Dance at first listen.

Julienne needs to take a step outside her block. The devotions thesis and highest heavenly praises for an nice, okay song. It's comparable to liturgy at this point.

 

  • Exhibit A: "Beyoncé as an SSRI :clown:, her attempt to assuage widespread depression and crushing stress"

 

  • Exhibit B: "In the first verse alone, she encapsulates the Great Resignation, the Great Unionization, and quarantine insomnia" UMMM....

 

  • Exhibit C: " In the absence of a national memorial for those lost to COVID-19, celebrating life with this exact oeuvre is both haunting and comes with a sense of deliverance déjà vu. [...] is a palimpsest, its evocations and sounds layered deep in the sense memories of club heads." :rip:

 

  • Exhibit D: "it positions Beyoncé as a diva entering her Whitney Greatest Hits era" :deadbanana2:

 

This is not fumes. This is calling out grandiose delusions. 

This - and it also applies to all the people who come out of the woodwork every time Beyonce releases something. If you have anything less than an extremely positive reaction to this track you're either racist or ignorant of the deep reclamation that is apparently occurring here because house music is all about a queer black perspective...

 

and yet Beyonce fails (for the SECOND TIME) to give a title feature credit to the black queer artist Big Freedia.

For what? Releasing a bad song? The way they keep licking her ass even when she releases bad music while they think they are cool when constantly dragging artists like Ed Sheeran :rip: This publication :rip: 

For encouraging her listeners to mask outside

 

Worldwide hoodie with the mask outside
In case you forgot how we act outside

 

Which is going to be an interesting set of lyrics if she decides to tour, and gathers thousands of fans singing back to her maskless.

You don’t give title feature credits to a sample or background vocals. Freedia is HAPPY and getting PAID.

You might not have to, but you should if you're not queer and you're strategically making a house track with a prominent black queer artist and releasing it during pride. If anyone else used Big Freedia's vocals this much on a track without a title feature you all would be calling for public executions, claiming queerbaiting and queer cultural appropriation :coffee2:

If you're not smart just say that!

 

This all makes complete sense to me and it is on point.

Yes, because I can recognize quality dance music that has commentary on the current culture. Pitchfork spilled with that article and you will deal!
