Beyonce Lines Up 2 New Singles

Published: Thursday 20th Nov 2008 by Sam
Beyonce Lines Up 2 New Singles It appears as though Beyonce will be serving up 2 new singles at a go with her ‘I Am…Sasha Fierce’ LP. The follow-up to current hits ‘If I Were A Boy’ and ‘Single Ladies’ have been confirmed as ‘Halo’ and ‘Diva’, the latter of which replaces ‘Ego’ as one of the next singles. Videos for both releases will be shot next week.
Considering I see ‘Halo’ as being one of the best tracks Beyonce has recorded in long while, I’m definitely pleased it’s receiving the single treatment. As for ‘Diva’, I’m sure the video will be r-e-a-l interesting LOL.

What do you think of the single choices?

    HALO!!! OMG I LOVE THAT Song sad to say Diva wont see #1 just as long as HALO is on BOARD Now this DIVA will not perform to its fullest cuz HALO will overshadow it and take over!

    It was obvious that “Halo,” was going to become the next single. It was the 2nd best song from the ‘I Am…’ side of the disc anyways.

    As for “Diva,” over “Ego,” I personally like “Ego,” better, but they are thinking in terms of separating the sounds most. And “Ego,” is far more similar to a slow song (which is what the ‘I Am…’ side is filled with) and ‘Diva,’ could by some be called a Hip Hop song.

    I do think though if “Diva,” does well on the charts (Especially the Hot 100), something is def. wrong about how the Music Industry works. It’s a decent song, but not worth a high charting status. And it is most def a total “A Milli,” rip off-coulda had so much more originality.

    @ this point I just don’t care. This album is just okay for me. I don’t what the hell she was thinking. It amazes me how B’DAY only took 2 weeks to record, and the is this SASHA FIERCE took a year and recorded over 70 songs and this is the shyt she came up with. This is her worst album ever.

    I hope one of these singles go number one becuase the other two has not hit the number one spot in the US< oops that's right RIRI is at the number one spot!!!!

    They have been playing Diva in Wisconsin as much as they have been playing Single Ladies . . . the hook is catchy and it will get radio play. If for no other reason than it being Beyonce . . . I personally like Ego better or Video Phone . . . but I can’t wait to see what she comes up with for the video. I hopes she goes for something alot less raunchier than the Single Ladies attire. At any rate, I listened to the songs a few weeks ago, and then again when I got the cd on Tuesday and I think lyrically she has grown. Some of the beats make the songs sound alot alike . . . but she did evolve more emotion and intimacy into these songs. While I like If I Were A Boy, I like BC Jeans version alot more. I was definitely glad to see that htere were no collaborations. You can tell she is growing as a person . . . I just would like to see her outer appearance change as well. Can’t wait for the tour because you know there will be one in 2009, they girl does put on one of the best concerts going these days . . . then of course by 2010 she will be knocked up . . . do laugh or think I’m crazy . . . listen to her talk. She said years ago, she would’t get married before 25 but that she wanted to be married with a family by 30, so she has 3 years to go on tour, which usually last for about 9 months, then get pregnant and have that baby by 30.

    YAY! I am so glad Halo is the next single. I think it’s the best song on the entire album. Very nice. I think it will do great. As for Diva, I think thats a good choice as well. It’s a fun dancy club song and it just Beyonce, what more can you say, lol. Good picks.

  13. Trebor November 20, 2008

    GREAT SINGLE CHOICES…And to the person who said neither one of the current singles have gone number 1…check the billboard chart baby, "Single Ladies" is number one on the R&B/Hip Hop charts and "If I Were A Boy" is number 1 on the Hot Digital Charts and number 3 on the Hot 100 charts…WE TOLD YALL TO STAND BACK CAUSE THE QUEEN BEE WAS ABOUT TO STING…U don't have to like her but DAMMIT u will RESPECT HER AND HER HUSTLE SHE'S A "DIVA"!!!!

    Good choice!

    …I’m I’m a Diva I’m I’m a Diva I’m I’m a Diva heyyy! lol

    I’m glad that she choose both…i for one cannot wait to see her perform diva live….its is going to be off the charts…i love this girl. and whomever is not liking the album..cool….thas your opinion…but your stupid….so it don’t matter…oh by the way i hate sandrarose that is all.

  16. Urbanfix.net November 20, 2008

    DIVA is definitely a good choice , that song goes HARD and I know most people are feeling that. Halo should do good as well, but I dont see why she’s doing the whole double single thing…she doesnt really need to unless she’s planning on recording another album soon.

    I love Halo it will be HUGE!(hopes and wishes “Smash Into You” will be released as a single as a remix of the original with John McLAughin and Beyonce’s version….look it up on youtube it is AMAZING).

    Now as for “Diva” I am sorry that song is the pits right next to video phone. But since it is Beyonce and peoople like stupid,pointless, catchy songs it will probably do well. Heck even Single Ladies was better than Diva and I didn’t even like that one much. I REALLY like “Ego” so I was hoping for it to be a single.

  18. Anonymous November 20, 2008

    I’m so excited about Halo…that is going to be a monster HIT! and I’m excited to see what she does for the video…

    Diva is a great look! I’m very happy she didn’t go with Ego because even though its a decent song I couldn’t really see it having the single treatment…and having Halo and Diva counter each other strengthens the alter ego theme she is going for. and the song BEATS!!!! and it always her to clown and act a fool in the video and not be taking seriously because its her alter ego Sasha singing the track! very smart marketing and promotional move!
    Go Beyonce!

  19. SHESPEAKZ November 20, 2008

    My favorite song on the album is “Hello” but I know that would never be a single. Halo is an obvious hit but I wish she would have chosen “Radio” as opposed to Diva.

  20. chastity November 20, 2008

    rihanna is not number one..TI is she is just lucky enough to be featured.

    halo is a good choice…it will do well…diva is alrite, but not my favorite.

    I like the Halo song, but I do not like the Diva song. The Diva song sounds childish to me. The song might grow on me, but right now, I do not like it. I like Sweet Dreams and Radio more than Diva. However, the video for Diva will probably be entertaining.

  23. Anonymous November 20, 2008

    Halo is definitley one of my favorite Beyonce songs of all time… So glad that its getting the single treatment.

    Diva is a great song as well too, so I think that was a great single choice as well.

    Nobody is hating on Beyonce. I just do not like the song. I have a right to my opinion. Stop trying to defend a woman you do not even know. Please do not take these comments so personal. They are just opinions and everybody has one. I do not know how you sleep at night while trying to defend her every day. Grow Up!

    I just pray video phone gets a single treatment!!!! that song is my fav off the sasha firece side hands down!!! Diva was an obvious choice for single because were still riding the wayne is everywhere thing. and a millie to this day still gets spins. sooo once that song drops, itll get mad air play for the single reason its the females answer to a millie so to speak.

  26. mims November 20, 2008

    Halo is undoubtedly one of the best tracks on the album.

    Diva might not necessarily be one of the best but it most certainly is catchy. And anyways, Diva won’t be released onto mainstream radio, only Halo.

    On a side note, I think the use of the phrase ‘rip off’ is wrongly used. Beyonce is not ripping off A Millie but she is SAMPLING. the style of the song. Ever heard of artists sampling other artists’ tracks? If you haven’t then there’s something wrong with you.

  27. Jamal November 21, 2008

    glad they dumped ego i never saw the ideology behind that, ego sounds too much like the i am side and when i think of a sasha fierce single i think more upbeat dancing and diva will be a great look for beyonce.

    YAY!! My two most favorite songs off the album are being released!! Even though this album is not her best…..Dangerously In Love still has my vote, it is a very solid effort!! Way to go Bee!! IMO Unexpected is a better album…..I’m a diehard Bee fan but I just think its wrong how much “promotion” Matt bragged about putting into this project and hardly did anything for Michelle!!! Still rooting for Bee though!

  29. Anonymous November 21, 2008

    I can’t understand why people keep saying Unexpected is a better album. I would understand when those people didn’t say to be Beyonce fans at the same time. But when you’re a Beyonce fan, IMO Unexpected does nothing for you, cause it’s not even the kind of music or songs Beyonce ever did.

    Sad EGO was replaced by DIVA, but it might fit better though.

  30. Joe November 21, 2008

    why couldn’t Scared of Lonely be next instead of DIVA I LOVE I AM SASHA FIERCE DELUXE EDITION!

    NA NA NA DIVA IS A FEMALE VERISON OF A….!

    LOVE YOU QUEEN BEY!

    You can be a Beyonce fan and still like an album over hers. Being a Bey stan doesn’t mean you must like everything she puts out. I know plenty of albums that are better than hers but that doesn’t mean I like her any less. And yes IMO Unexpected is a better album. Whoever said that you can’t like more than one genre of music?

    Absolutely love Halo, its a great track and is gonna do brilliantly on the charts. I would have preferred Radio but Diva is one of them songs that is gonna rip it up in the clubs. Definitely her best album to date.

    For 7:51 who said it was you hating I was speaking in general terms. If your not classified a hater move the hell on. I was talking in general no need to get defensive. I just see lots of people from blog to blog hating for no apparent reason and now I see why because like I said they can’t knock her and her success. And I sleep just fine at night while in daytime voicing my damn opinion just like you here voicing yours.

  34. kk November 21, 2008

    I had a feeling Ego wasnt going to be released because its on the Deluxe Version, what is the purpose of releasing a regular and then deluxe version aside from money; think about someone going to buy her album because of the new singles and then turn and find out its only on the Deluxe Version people would be pissed the hell off. And I doubt Sony Music will keep pressing both for the long run since that would be more cost for them.

    It would be the same type of situation Usher had with telling people about a rerelease before the album release, If beyonce was to release singles back and forth from the regular and deleuxe version consumers buying the regular version would be alienated as f**k since i bet all stores that carry music would sell both.

    I am glad you like Beyonce and that you want her to be successful. I want everybody to be successful. However, people use the word hating all the time on these boards to belittle people who do not think like them or do not like their favorite artist’s song. We have a right to our opinion without other people attacking them. Beyonce is going to make money off the song even if one person does not like the song. Nobody hates Beyonce by expressing his or her opinion about not liking her song. A person is hating when they wish harm or evil on another person. For example, I wish Beyonce’s album would flop (I like her album). I only wondered if you sleep well at night, because you were attacking people and calling them haters. I do not like the song so what. I just wish she released Sweet Dream or radio instead of Diva. I understand that she is capitalizing on the fame of Lil Wayne’s song. I am sorry that you thought I was trying to be mean to you. I just cannot stand people trying to belittle other by calling them haters.
