I love her speaking voice. I can listen to it all day. It so warm & calm. Not all high pitched like most air headed women. Her speaking voice is kinda like Alicia Keys & Mariah Carey’s.

My friend emailed my this album a week and a half ago. I still have yet to listen to it as I have never been impressed by her voice or her music. I think she’s a cutie though. Hopefully I can get to it soon enough. I did hear some snippets though and it sounded average. Love you Beyonce!

What better way to spend Christmas than surrounded by family and friends,drinking egg nog and listening to SLAYONCE. This album is everything,listening to it on Christmas makes it better. Unlike most trolls on here,some of us actually have family and friends who love us and spend this wonderful day with us instead of hating all day long. Merry Christmas kids,God is love <3

At this Christmas dinner and I loved hearing them say she is so beautiful and that she can sing and that she doesn’t have anything else to prove.
December 25, 2013 at 4:10 pm
It’s amazing that you think she has a great speaking voice when most think her vocabulary is that of a 5th grader or that she should take public speaking classes.
December 25, 2013 at 4:12 pm
Love her even more. I have “Drunk in Love” on repeat now.
She’s Cute, I Love The Direction She’s taking This Era, Shedding this “Perfect” Thing That Kept her real self in a Box, U can tell she is relived she can do it Now.

Happy Holidays To You All.

@IconicCiCi Must you be bitter on Christmas too?! LOL!!
December 25, 2013 at 5:47 pm
LMAO she was like ‘oh no he did NOT’ when he dropped that curve line!
December 25, 2013 at 6:13 pm
I see what she’s doing! King is always putting to rest all the stupid rumors surrounding her. Remember how everyone swore up and down that she was scrapping some “original” album she initially recorded and starting from scratch. 0_0 … Well she kept the songs that she gravitated towards, that she recorded “a year ago”! Lmaaaao! That says it all right there! I love how everyone think they have her whole life summed up and couldn’t be any further away from knowing the truth.
Anyway, every time I hear snippets of the album it sends me right back to it! It will definitely be a while before I put this one down!

you did not need to share that. lol

December 25, 2013 at 8:22 pm
Ermmm no it does not, maybe for you but in most households Christmas is about having fun with family. All music plays in my house for the young and old.
December 25, 2013 at 8:34 pm
I absolutely love this album. ‘Haunted’ and ‘Mine’ are my favorites.
December 25, 2013 at 9:21 pm
Interesting that her singles keep “underperforming” like her last era.I smell a rat.
December 25, 2013 at 9:27 pm
The main purpose of singles are to promote the album, not the other way around. She has nothing to worry about. This album clearly was not catered for singles the way it was released collectively with all the videos already on there. Its all about the album as a body of work selling.
December 25, 2013 at 9:32 pm
In fact, Beyoncé did the complete opposite from the norm. She has not pushed any single besides release two videos on vevo the same time her album is available WITH the video already on it. People are buying the album. She is clearly not bothered by singles. If you can’t see that you need a reality check.
December 25, 2013 at 9:49 pm
@Ammie Leann you seem a little bitter about Beyonces success? Coming in her posts trying to discredit at every turn? What is so intresting?
From the moment I saw she dropped a full album, no pre warning WITH all the accompanying videos I knew singles would become a non factor here. Its just common sense.
Unless she starts performing a particular one at award shows or whatever they probably will continue to be. And I for one am certainly not bothered because when you can shift $16 albums why worry about $1.29 singles?
Some people need a hit to promote their album (and even then it doesn’t always help their album sales) some don’t.
December 25, 2013 at 10:19 pm
Her and Jay are so cute togther
December 25, 2013 at 10:31 pm
But bayonce promoted Run the wold like there is no tomorrow, and still bombed at billboard hot 100. Is not like she can have a hit whenever she wants. DIL is available on itunes, the full video is on vevo and the single was sent to radio, but since people feel cheated cause the album is not that good, word of mouth is spreading that there isnt a smash worthy song.
December 25, 2013 at 10:49 pm
But last time I checked we were talking about THIS era. So how is applying what she did two years ago relevant? Who knows how they would have done this era if she decided to release a lead? No one knows because it never happened. But this era carries no favor for singles whatsoever. So you pointing it out is pointless. Its working against them.
And why should she be bothered about the singles when her album is selling? Like @Marley said, singles support the album.
And the album is the most critically acclaimed album by a pop female this year (85 on metacritic) AND it still selling so what were you saying about feeling cheated and not being good? Where did that theory come from, your Twitter feed? LOL. All I am hearing is praise from this album with critical acclaim and steady continuous sales to back it up. Thats your opinion. Universal opinion differs.

So TGJ, I WOULD JUST LIKE TO KNOW How will you be sending my ‘Festive Gift’ ???
December 26, 2013 at 2:11 am
‘ DRUNK ON LOVE ‘ is bound to be a hit anyway 20 milli + view on vevo and is all over the radio beside as said before she is sellin’ this album like crazy so who care about top 10 hit she did 613k in 1st week manage to do 383k in second week the review are raving i mean cut this girl some slack she is killin it this era !!!
December 26, 2013 at 10:04 am
Ermmm what kind of backward thinking? She does not need to worry about the singles. And the album has not even been out 3 weeks yet. Give the songs a chance.
December 26, 2013 at 10:11 am
Keep it Drama free? Most college educated African Americans think Beyonce is dumb as rocks. Ask Wendy Williams. She appeals to the Ghetto fabulous. She’s definitely no Jill Scott, Sade, or Lauren Hill when it comes to smart lyrics. My husband can’t stand her. “Bootylicious” anyone??
I’m American New Yorker, but I read the British daily mail comments for her new video. Most were disappointed because they thought she would be the next Tina Turner…not next porn star … Jenna jameson
December 26, 2013 at 6:38 pm
Loool I see a lot of pathetic theories without anything to back them up in this post. But anything to bring Beyoncé down right? Funny it always backfires and just keeps making her a bigger artist! Music aside she is extremely influential.
P.S. Just because someone sounds country doesn’t make them stupid. Some people go to university to learn about video directing, editing and stuff like that which Beyoncé can do.
