Exclusive: Symbolyc One Dishes On New Beyonce Album

 Exclusive: Symbolyc One Dishes On New Beyonce Album

He’s the creative genius behind 50 Cent‘s ‘My Life’ and The Throne‘s ‘Murder To Excellence’, but for Pop lovers- it’s Beyonce‘s ‘Best Thing I Never Had‘ that Symbolyc One may be most renown for.

Only right then, that as the ‘Satelites’ singer readies the release of her fifth studio album, One stands as one of the many producers reported  to have signed on to help craft it.

Now peep what he had to say on the matter in an exclusive interview with That Grape Juice. Net below!

On the chart topper, he explained:

“I met Beyonce while working with Kanye and Jay out in London and Australia on the Watch The Throne album.  Creatively we bonded and she loved my work. That led to her asking me to fly out to New York at the top of the year to work on her album with her.  January 2nd of 2011 I got that call to fly out to work with Bey.  

My co-producer Caleb McCampbell and I went out there and created about 4-5 songs with Bey and “Best Thing I Never Had” was one of the ones that stuck. Then my fam Shea Taylor (who was lead producer on “4″) came in and polished the record up and it became Beyonce’s 2nd single from her album.”


“I can definitely say she’s already got a few joints from me for her new project.  However, I’m not sure of her direction or where she’s trying to take it creatively this go round.  Guess no one will really know till it drops (laughs).”

Be on the lookout for his entire interview when it hits TGJ this week!!

    *shrugs* We all know her album won’t be anything particularly special. Won’t 4 supposed to be inspired by her traveling the world and seeing plays or something? And it was essentially just an R&B album, nothing new or groundbreaking, with the exception of that horrid Run The World track that shoulda been left off all together.

    Bore-yonce always does SoooooOooOoo much extra press before an actual
    event, its disgusting. Any other artist would just do the event and let
    the press speak for itself after the event, but with her she’ll make
    several announcements for a mag cover before it comes out, make several
    announcements for a video before it even comes out, she was the only
    artist to even do press releases about the inaugaration. It’s like she
    needs to put out her own press releases for her to stay relevant
    otherwise aint nobody going to go out of their way to check for her. She
    is so press hungry and so phoney so phoney so fake. She’s a media
    artist, not a real artist and honestly the most irritating fakeass
    singer in history. Let’s just boycott all her projects and make her GO
    AWAY ALREADY- you’re as annoying as fleas/roaches/mosquitos or all
    three. b**** you are an irritant and a boRe that goes beyond the
    definition of boredom itself. We see how you’re playing the media and
    it’s not cute – famewhoring is never cute and that is pretty much all
    you do. Where is Blurblur???

    It would be ashame to see her flop after all of this hype. I think most of the public are just tired of her. It’s not that they hate her they are just tired of her being forced down their throat. They try to make her seem bigger than what she really is, and people are calling her out for that. No real legend has to force themselves down your throat because the people already know your great. She has no Iconic songs, no real signature (no that nappy blond wig aint it) no style, voice is good not great… Let’s face it her songs are ghetto, and forgettable for the most part. I just don’t see it happening. Beyonce has lived out her glory years, and she will never be as big as she once was. She still will sell of course because she people still do love her (silly but ok). The public has made up their mind about her, and for the most part they stop caring when they found out how much of a fame w****, and fraud she was…It’s beyonce team, and crazy stans who see her as this iconic, and legend figure! and a few ass kissers in the industry, but people know and don’t buy that b*******….Her songs are not living up to the legend status. She is simply just a energetic dancer, who puts on a good show, with a decent voice, and pretty face Nothing more nothing less! surely she is over exposed, and just needs to chill the f*** out, and stop doing so much!

    Music Soul Harmony Replied:

    She’s probably overhyped cuz no one else in this generation can match her talent on a singing and dancing level. Let’s be real. If you take her away, we’re left with mediocrity since MJ and Whitney passed until another star just as good as Bey can prove themselves!!

    Question. Do producers or singers ever big Rihoeanna work. Ok. Thought so. Cause nobody will ever co sign anything she puts out. Its just disposable pop genric sh*t. The Whole Industry waits on KING B work like slaves. Its always “I’m working with Beyonce or I got the next record with Beyonce. Nobody respects Rihoe. She will never ever reach Iconic status or reach KING B level. Think I’m lying. Just hope ur asses on twitter and ask industry insiders. #2013……THE YEAR OF BEYONCE

    People are saying they are tired of Beyonce esp since Rih is the new it girl but what does Rihanna really offer that’s so remarkable? Her team creates an image for her. She has very little skill and virtuosity under her belt. Her singing and performances are weak and should be better for someone of her status. Trust me, without all that smoke and mirror illusion, no one would be interested in her either. So even if Beyonce were to totally disappear or demise, you all would get sick of Rihanna too cuz face it, she is no better. Her fans just like to talk s*** cuz she’s selling and topping charts. Beyonce may be bland sometimes and ppl get tired of the ass shaking but I’d rather watch that than stiff dancing and struggled vocals. Everything Beyonce does, she does it effortlessly cuz she actually rehearses like we see in those clips. Beyonce is one of the BEST in THIS generation. Sorry haters if you disagree.

    When Beyonce was announced as the feature act for the Super Bowl XLVII halftime show, the predominant thought in my mind was that her performance would be amazing.

    I don’t go around the house singing “Bootylicious” or “Put a Ring on it,” but I’d be lying if I said she wasn’t an amazing performer. She has the ability to light up a stage before she evens utters a word on the microphone.

    I admit, part of that is because she’s gorgeous.

    Kevin Winter/Getty Images
    One glimpse of Beyonce on stage is enough to grab my attention for at least a few moments. I’ve heard many critics/haters say she can’t sing and make other untrue statements.

    I take those comments with a grain of salt.

    Mostly because people will make excuses or give pardons for the deficiencies of the musical acts they like. Bob Dylan fans completely ignore the fact that he sounds like a starving flea when he sings.

    Why? Because he’s an amazing writer and he’s cool as a fan.

    I happen to enjoy Beyonce’s voice, but it doesn’t hurt that she’s got the most beautiful legs in show business.

    Singing isn’t even going to be the determining factor for success with this performance. It’s going to come down to staging, special guests and dancing.

    Beyonce’s got you covered on all of those fronts.

    Her stage shows are generally elaborate and awesome. You’d have to think that the powers that be would make sure a high-profile performance like this would be totally decked out.

    She’s married to Jay-Z, so if Shawn Carter steps on the stage for a cameo the stadium is going to go nuts, and many of the men pretending to ignore the performance at home will be allowed to comfortably take notice as well.

    There are rumors that a Destiny’s Child reunion is in store for fans (OMG! from Yahoo!). That would equate to nothing more than eye candy for me, but that segment will certainly broaden the appeal of the game to a larger audience.

    As for dance routines, nobody moves like Beyonce.

    The halftime show is more about the visual performance than anything. All things considered, there is no one that will look better on stage than Beyonce.
