You can now listen to Beyonce’s eagerly awaited ‘I Am…Sasha Fierce’ CD (legally!) over at The New Music Leak:
I’ll hold my review until nearer the album’s release (November 18th), although that doesn’t stop you!
What do you think of ‘I Am…Sasha Fierce’?
Hit or Miss?
Halo is a hit if I’ve ever heard one. Damn Beyonce, but that’s a good song no lie.
it’s a HIT! and i’m not saying that just because i’m Beyonce fan. album is really good. i love Halo, Broken Harted Girl, Sweet Dreams, Diva,… actually I like all the songs. her best album to date.
IM SORRY EXPECTED MORE. ON THE BEYONCE SIDE ITS NOTHING BUT WINEING. AND THE SHASHA SIDE IS PURE BOOSTING AND NO SUBSTANCE. OVER IT!
ONLY A CRAZED BEYONCE STAN WOULD LIKE THIS.
ITS GARBAGE 2 ME. I WILL BE DOWNLOADING AND/OR BOOTLEGGING. IT IS NOT AT ALL COHESIVE. SHE IS BITING FROM EVERYONE ON THIS CD. IT TOOK HER 2 YEARS TO COME UP WITH THIS B*******??. I HEAR SOME OF EVERYONE ON THIS CD….ALICIA KEYS….RIHANNA…LEONA LEWIS….MICHELLE WILLIAMS….KERI HILSON….KELLY ROWLAND….LIL WAYNE….COBIE CAILLET…UGGGGGGGGG IM SO SICK OF HER…..I HATED BDAY BUT IT WAS BETTER THAN THIS S*** AND HER FIRST ALBUM WAS REALLY GOOD….THIS S***..*SIGH*..IT SHOULD BE CALLED I AM BORED AND I STEAL….

In reply to your BOLD comment. It took Beyonce a year ACTUALLY. She ain’t even copying. You just hating cuz you wanna be like Beyonce. It’s okay. We know how you feel. H**.
It sounds as if she just took songs and threw them on one cd. Where is the story? Where is the depth? Im what you call I guess a STAN and I have to say I am highly disappointed with this material. Come on Sasha I thought you were going to come harder and better than this.
BE LIKE HER NO I DONT THINK SO THIS S*** SOUND HORRIBLE SORRY IT JUST DOES AND THATS MY OPINION SO IF YOU DONT LIKE IT O WELL CANT HELP THAT AND YOU TALKIN I WANT TO BE HER O NOW….BUT ITS CLEAR 2 SAY U WANT TO BE ME HUH?…..JUST LIKE BEYONCE YOU STEALING MY NAME HUH?????…….U HAVE GOTTA BE A CRAZED STAN…….
LMAO @ watevaisayistrue….
“Its garbage, but I’ll be downloading and/or bootlegg”
LOL. How much since does that make??
But anyway, I like half of the Beyonce side, and all of the Sasha side. I will be getting the album.
Why do you people jump to Beyonce’s defense so quickly?
Y duzz diva sound like a milli….lmao lame ass c*** b**** i hate b****-once. rhirhi all day only ppl that support b****-once are gay aidz infected going 2 hell men who want to be like her god i hate gayz

*cough* !watevaisayistrue! *cough* i saw your comment on another site and you must be really fukd up to and comment on diferent sites about Beyonce geesshh if only us stans were as commited as you =]
Why is Sweet Dreams exactly the same as Beautiful Nightmare?
!Watevaisayisture! – It was you that posted that comment. We know. Hahahahaha
i really like Halo…it must be second single from her… i think it will be HUGE…like irreplacable…
can’t wait for duluxe edition… i think it’s better than B’day… but her 1st album is still the best…
Some people did help. God hates NO ONE! Ignorant ass! Don’t hate just our gay brothaz and sistaz aint checkin for RhiERROR.
Anyway, I actually like the slower ballads from Beyonce better. Either way, I’d give this CD a good 7/10. Aint horrible, aint classic.
It’s not the worst I heard but it sure isn’t the best.
She still on the top
GO QUEEN BEE
Alright Ms. Beyonce. Tryna get gangsta on “diva” LOL. But thats still my jam and I will be bumping that song in my car cuz “ima a diva, ima ima a diva!” lol
I actually love the whole concept of this new Beyonce CD and CD covers, she is showing that S** (Rihanna) does not have to be the only factor for you to have a singing ability or talent what ever you want to call it.
If people would open their eyes and see she is making a much needed statement. It’s time we bring music back to where it is suppose to be; for the talented ones.
I get you Beyonce and I feel you. Single Ladies shows some s*** but it also shows talent…
She always have a meaning in what she does, it just depends on if you get it or not. If she would have had a so called theme (in which she does) they would still talk crazy about it.
Go Queen BEE!!!!
woww the album is amazing!! halo is incredible..major stand out track…thank god its her next single
i love sattelites too..her voice in every song sounds wicked..shes hitting all the high notes and the low notes!!!
broken-hearted girl is good…LOVE radio and sweet dreams!! not sure bout video phone…but diva is def a grower..i can see it become the next anthem
shes def at her peak again…watch out every1!! shes bak to her DIL days
ps. CANT WAIT FOR EMA PERFORMANCE!! any1 know wat shes singing?????? i pray its a melody
Im not fan of Beyonce but I have to admit that album is really good.
God job Beyonce.
the aalbum is pretty good i must say…but beyonce disc its not that hot but i like the songs
TAKE THIS POST OFF!!!!!!!!!! PEOPLE NEED TO BUY THE ALBUM…. -_-
I heard it yesterday, didn’t like it. Half sounds like Leona Lewis, the other half sounds like garbage.
This isnt the whole album she does have a deluxe edition.. Where is scared of lonely, Ego
As male who prefers R&B today over hip hop other than classic Nas, Jay-Z 2 Pac Notorious B.I.G. Rakim and many others. I can say I was anxiously awaiting to hear what Beyonce has in store for us this go round. I just finished my sneak peek and I have to say the Beyonce side is more mature material for her than ever.I can honestly say I was not impressed beyond that. However there are some decent tracks. Stand out cuts If I were A Boy, Broken- Hearted Girl, Halo. On the flip even though I feel Sasha Fierce shows no growth or originality considering Bee is held in such high standards this will be the winner in today's music market which tells me today's music needs the circus rather than the substance. Stand out cuts; Sweet Dreams, Diva, Single Ladies Overall I predict that Bee will do well in the sales department because she has a cult following that will not fail her but overall this album seems very bland at times and lacks the fire that of her debut Dangerously In Love. But this is a Beyonce world get down or lay down.
The beyonce side i love alot more. I can listen to those songs throughtout the day. While the sasha songs I would play right before I go to the clubs. Actually i love the whole album and i believe that this is beyonce best work to date. Dangerously in loe was good, but her voice was not as strong and mature as it is today. On that CD it was kind of a nasal type of singing but on this CD, Her voice is stringer.
I like this. I think she did an excellent job.
Favorites from the CD: Broken hearted girl, satellities, Halo (excellent song),Smash into you, Ava Maria, and If I were a boy. Sasha Side: Single ladies, Radio, Sweet Dreams, Diva.
All in all seeing the audiences she captures this album coers everyone, men, women, children, and teenager (ehich this is how music is supposed to be). I’ll give it a A-
“What? You want me naked. If you likin’ this position you can tape it on your video phone”
Nuff said about Sasha Fierce
I love the album it is one of her best and it give you a variety. People shouldn’t hate because she has talented and beautiful.
THIS IS THE WORST CD IVE HEARD IN A WHILE! I LOVE BEYONCE BUT THIS IS PURE CRAP!
This album sounds like something she threw together and to defend it she decided to go with an alter ego.
I am all for good music regardless of the artist, but lets be real this album sounds like pure garbage..maybe 3 good songs.
Now, I will not say it will not sell because she has a fan base, so her CD will be pushed.

I soooooo agree with the this person the 1st half of Bee's album is a Leona sounding CD. This is to touch a different side of Bee. Got a pop, euro-sound to it.
I like that its different but i prefer this sound with other kind of artists.
I Am…I DON'T KNOW (cus this ain't Beyonce)
Where's the R&B gone…
Sasha Side of CD is..
errmm Europeanish and Hip-Hop ish and WaCkish and Nursery Rhymish (Video Phone)
Once again where's the R&B (i.e Beyonce in Love In The Club pt. 2 or Until The End Of Time Remix)
IS THIS THE REAL ALBUM!!!!! errrmmmm
This Sasha parts sounds more rushed than B'day..
who ever dont like this is a hater. beyonce is that deal! she can sing and dance, and stop talking about rihanna’s tired ass, she is so lame. she sucks!
Its ok not bad not good just ok….
i really like this material!!! better than her second album so far!!!! i love “halo” and “diva” i play it everyday lol 🙂 and f*** haters!! u waste ur time writing a lot of b****t!! Go bee!!!! 🙂 ave maria brought me in tears!
Where the other tracks like Ego, Scared & Lonely(Album Version), That's Why You're Beautiful etc…
The album is good apart from the Sasha half..
Halo is fire and i actually like the different parts of her voice she uses in Ave Maria..
Overall an OK album and Sasha needs to just keep it on the stage…
I do agree with some peeps who sayin that CD1 is sounding like a Leona CD but its good though..
I'll stick by Bee as she can't always stay in the BoX with her style of albums but i do think she should keep certain elements that got her where she is in the first place.
A few artist out are calling their music R&B when its sooo watered down into pop culture that i have 2 disagree…
@ Suga Brown
I guess great minds think alike because I agree with your analysis as well. I think the "Leona-sounding" songs are good songs, but they just don't fit her. I think Sweet Dreams/Beautiful Nightmare did the best job of combining the euro/pop sound with the Beyonce sound. But the rest of the I Am songs are just garbage to me. I see she jumped on the pop bandwagon (very uniconic imo) but she should have kept a bit more of the R&B. You have to remember what your original fan base is.
overall i like the album but i hate the DIVA song.. beyond rubbish.
i am definitely not impressed… this cd is not worth all the hype that has been around it.
i think the album ok..theres some outstanding tracks like halo, ave maria, satellites and sweet dreams but then theres some really bad tracks like video phone
i wouldnt call it a leona-like cd..leona songs are quite dull…beyonces voice jus makes the songs sound that bit better – her voice is so pure and forces u to listen to her!!
overall its a good album, just another solid effort..but nothing wowwyy…its like the ‘survivor’ album for destiny’s child..jus maintaining same level
oh btw those of u saying shes lost her r’n’b WAATT??!! the ballads have that beyonce trademark beat behind it!! she has her own style
I think its funny that people are saying that she’s stealing and biting…uh, she’s been doing this long enough and has become such a success at it that I don’t think she has to steal anything from anyone. There’s enough room for people to appreciate Leona Lewis, Rhianna, Alicia Keys and the other talented R and B singers out there who put their hard work into creating a piece of art. Beyonce’s doing her thing, trying some different things. Don’t put her in a box. If you don’t like it, don’t buy it.
“Right To Dream,” the original ballad Mariah co-wrote with Willie Nelson for her film “Tennessee”, went for adds at Adult Contemporary radio on Monday, October 20th. Listen to a 30-second clip and find the song’s lyrics at MariahDaily. 🙂
I’M BUYING THE CD. I THINK SHE IS COMING WITH A FRESH SOUND NOW. CAN’T WAIT TO GET IT, JUST 2 MORE WEEKS!
I AM LOVING IT. YES ALL THOSE HATERS I AM DRINKING THE BEYONCE COOL-AID. AND IT IS SO DAMN GOOD YALL SHOULD TRY IT (LOL) ANY WAYZ SHE KILLS THIS ALBUM SHE MET ALL MY EXPECTATIONS. LIKE ALWAYS. EVEN THOUGH I JUST HEARD THE ALBUM I’M STILL GOING TO BUY. THAT’S BECAUSE I’M A REAL, TRU FAN.
halo is good, so is sweet dreams…umm don’t care too much for anything else…i’ll cop those 2 songs tho…so far the album gets a 6.5/10 from me…not bad tho..
Love It 😉
all of you people (haters, non-hater, curious, newbBEEs) who are saying that this is not Beyonce, or it's suits more to Leona Lewis, or where's the R&B style, et…. you should know this!
Beyonce told that she is taking some RISKs and is trying something NEW! if you want R&B sounds go and buy yourselves "Dangerously in love" or "B'Day"! it's only natural that an artist want to try something NEW! and this time she gave us LOTS of NE materials! compared to her previous LP (10 songs) this time she gave us 16 songs! and not just filled with R&B! this LP is for the MASSES! people! And i absolutely disagree that these songs fits to LEona!
ok enough said!
do u HALO HALO HALOOO!!! 😀
I will not be wasting my money on this. More power to those that will, but I can’t do it. She recorded over 70 songs and these are the results? I don’t hear the growth she claims she has experienced as a singer. The ‘Beyonce’ side was ok, but boring. She didn’t hire the right producers to give her some soulful, memorable ballads and The ‘Sasha Fierce’ side is the same old chicken head anthems from B Day.
IT’S ONLY ABOUT THE DELUXE VERSIONS COS THOSE ARE MY FAVOURITE TRACKS!!
I like it…I really do, I have a bootleg..(i will be buying) and I bump all. It has something for everyone, and some will like it, some won’t so what…Oh and to the Rhianna stan…who hates f*** and die?…Its sad that you say that when your father is the biggest Queen of them all, u f***** test tube baby….yea I brought it back!
yuck 🙁 single ladies is bouncy but the rest are less than awesome
well i think Satellites and Video Phone are the poorest on the album. and most people here will agree with me that the stand out is HALO (ohhh! after this word i just can’t stop singing! lol)! I also like Broken-Hearted Girl and Sweet Dreams. oh and I don’t have to mention If I Were A Boy, have I? ;P overall 9+/10
ND is right the deluxe version has a couple of better tracks on there
the album to me is like ok. And im a die hard beyonce fan. but i agree the album could have been better. Im downloading sooy bey. and what i think is That being married and u have diffrent on things when your in love. But beyonce could have came harder. But my favorites or…..
-Broken Hearted Girl
-Sweet dreams(my favorite)
-radio(but a percent of it)
yeah i give the album a 6/10
but this is whats gonna happen
this is gonna sell atleast 200k in the states and like 800k round the world the first week.
then she goona make a rerelease wit the videos and more songs.(hopely better songs) i want to hear her do something with justin timberlake, kanye west, etc…
then she will go on tour. then get PREGNAT. yes pregnat. then wwe will be stuck with rihanna. who i love. her songs are very nice. but i think that everybody was expecting this album to be like Rihanna last album. but i guess shes like to be urban. nd yeah it took her a year to make this CD i guess she still thinks that “a milli” is still a hit.lol Poor bey.lol listening to people thts been kissing her ass sence sshe was 15 wow. She needs tuff luv. cause the album is not better than B’day. sorry but her first album. IS still the s***. i dont think she could never top that album. rihanna cant even top “Dangerously in love”. thats a good ass album. but yeah beyonce come harder. But i bet the Performances will be hot.lol
people jump to beyonce’s defense because they are stupid
Can sum1 tell me the point of releasing a two disc album with only 11 tracks total? I know she’s going for the whole double personality concept, but come on now…
Beyonce’s side is ok nuthing really speacial sounds like some left over tracks from rhianna and leona lewis’ albums. There isnt a ballad on here that hooks me instantly like her last two albums (Flaws and All, Irreplaceable, Dangerously in Love)
Sasha’s side…GG its a hot mess who would have guessed Single Ladies would have been the higlight? Everything sounds like something I’ve heard be4 Single Ladies = Get Me Bodies, Diva = Milli, and Video Phone sounds like sum s*** Danity Kane would have put out…you know if they were still 2gether.
So disappointed B, baby your supposed to be the trend setter not the trend follower
More than likely there is gonna be a re release,
hopefully she comes harder the second time around.
Good thing Obama won office otherwise November would have been a s***** month.
Its official. I am buying the album now! I was skeptical at first but HALO and BROKEN-HEARTED GIRL done won we over…and over….and over lol. I done played them two was back to back at least 20 times already
I think this is the best album she has recorded. With each song to be a hit from Europe to US.
The next single should be from I am…
From Sasha Fierce
Radio *In Europe
Diva *In USA
there was a tune called hello? or did i imagine that, i was looking forward to it. sounded fly! this b cd isn’t the one yet! but it’ll grow on me. She need to put out diva cause the flavor is going to leave that track real quick!
^Hello is on the deluxe edition.
It’s okay…but most times I don’t like Bey when I first hear her then she grows on me and I can bump her music on the highway and have a different appreciation… she does her thing love it or hate it…
I will say she rocked that Ave Maria song… that was my wedding song I let my husband choose and hearing the man sing in his opera voice while I was walking grated my nerves. I wish Bey had this version out when I married..lol..
One of the songs she sounded like she was yodeling but she does that and it works for her… I love that she used more range in her voice in the Bey tracks… and she took more risks with her Sasha tracks Radio is ghettofab twang in the beginning and fun….I don’t like the way SweetDreams started but toward the middle I was bopping… did she say “c****** pleasure”? lol… overall I like it and will be purchasing and I’m sure all except maybe one song will grow on me…
halo was wwritten for leona. in true knowles fashion they ended up with it
I am a huge Beyonce fan, but I must admit this album is not impressive at all. It seems thrown together and has no substance at all. The Beyonce side is boring at best and the Sasha side is lacking in the fierceness department…that diva song is straight garbage it doesnt even sound like her, I think she needs to be herself and stop trying so hard to please everybody. Sorry Bey, but me no likey…i truly hope this is not the real album because i wont be purchasing it!
Everybody that is jumping to Beyonce defense must be young teenagers, it is not that serious. I am a beyonce fan but this album could have been way better. It’s ok.
I am here to believe in the deepest of my heart, beyonce is paying people to say nice things about this album. I think there are people who sit on her to say that is album is good, this album is garbage!!!!!! I can’t believe a women with her popularity would sing such horrible music. I think that this album will loose alot of fans and will definetly give other female artist a time to shine. She is suppose to be dominating the charts, well that’s not happening!!!!
i love the cd i just wished there were more songs like single ladies..deja vu..etc. everyone was saying she hasnt grown shes the same but now you people are saying shes not even beyonce anymore without the bootymusic lol i love every track except video phone and diva those songs are the dumbest songs ive ever heard but lol halo..ego..and radio are the best songs ive ever heard lol YAY!!! im gonna buy it maybe two copies…
maybe if she cuts her head off on one of her discs she would be cited for doing something new and creative…Nothing the girl does can please ya’ll…Just admit that you just don’t like her and that would be good enough but stop fakin like its the music that turns you off
