New Song: Beyonce – ‘Black Culture’

Published: Wednesday 23rd Dec 2009 by Trent

Beyonce is currently prepping to finish her tour and release a new LP in 2010. Meanwhile, a new song from Billboard’s female artist of the decade has surfaced. There is no word on whether this Michael Jackson ‘Don’t Stop ’til You Get Enough’ sample from her recent studio sessions or a previously unreleased track from her other projects.

This record is a fun 70’s throwback that depicts Beyonce using a lot more restraint than she has done in recent times. Her voice easily glides over the Quincy Jones-produced melody without overpowering or underwhelming the listener. If this is similar to the organic sound that Beyonce is trying to capture on her next ‘Indie-inspired’ album, then I am all ears.

Hit or Miss?

    Its a HIT

  2. Info December 23, 2009

    She is riding this beat like crazy. I automatically loved dis song from the first listen. That beat is jus a feel good beat, the lyrics coulda been mo, but overall its a nice joint.

  3. whystillinbusiness December 23, 2009

    That’s nice for Black History month.. She should’ve added more but still nice…..

    @WHYSTILLBUSINESS

    Yea it couldve been mo, its a great track, especially for black history month…I’ll be blasting it at the family cook out lol.

    But i think its jus like an experiment to see what her next album will feel like

    “SAY NO TO BEYONCE IN 2010”

  6. whystillinbusiness December 23, 2009

    Yeah! that would be nice for a family gathering..

  7. Dawon December 23, 2009

    As a die hard Bey fan, This is something different for me from her. I kinda like it but you can tell she was just playing around in the studio. Of course her voice rides the beat like no other!

    blah

    The song is really lively – something that I think would be great for a soundtrack, but an album, it would definitely depend on the overall sound of the album. One of those songs that can’t really stand-alone, but with a cohesive album theme, would be off the chain.

    Here’s to Beyonce for trying something new! I guess she figures she has the pop game on lock (penitentiary style), so why not broaden her horizons.

    This Is SICK. This is the Bee I was waiting for, I mean her last album was hot but a little bit too pop-licious. I hope she comes back with shyt like this, she need to be more “black”.

    Go Bee hit us with stuff like this.

  11. Ms StaceyK December 23, 2009

    It’s cute 🙂

  12. gigi December 23, 2009

    s*** is wack… Why is tryna take her lil sisters style.. The only thing hot about it is the beat… This track is horrible, and everyone is going to say its hot because its beyonce.. This is not a hot track… SHe is black culture give me a break..

  13. bambino December 23, 2009

    she shouldve left the beat alone!

  14. antertain December 23, 2009

    Beyonce promoting the black S** lol

    Proper laughing it up. She loves it geeeez

  15. Anne December 23, 2009

    I think she was just having fun in the studio and it’s not really a release ready track but her voice sounds GREAT as usual. She could make anything sound good and of course you can’t get enough of that beat.

  16. MORE TRUTH December 23, 2009

    BEYAAAAWNCE!!! BORRING. THE VOCALS ARENT THERE. TONS OF THIS TYPE OF MUSIC IN 70’S AND EARLY 80’S. WHY USE BEYAAAAAWWNCE??? SHE SUCKS.

  17. mez December 23, 2009

    Ammmm NO BORING as HELL!

  18. Erica December 23, 2009

    Michael Jackson would have loved it. I like it. It sounds fun, If she ever did a video for this, I hope she doesn’t do TOO much, it would take away from the song being fun….I AM BLACK CULTURE!! love it!! It’s a real Feel GOOD song!

  19. Erica December 23, 2009

    oh yeah..and this is the type of stuff i really BELIEVE she does write, SIMPLE…with NOT alot of thought to it…all that other stuff, Halo, Satellites, Disappear, smash into you, etc. I know for sure those are demos she buys.

  20. MeSouth December 23, 2009

    it’s funny how everyboy’s hatin on her, ahaha she’s legend and haters keep her motivated.

  21. Its Me Again December 23, 2009

    Love Beyonce but I don’t like this… she definitely should have left that beat alone. When you are being compared to MJ on something you’re bound to pale in comparison.

    Happy Xmas Eve’s Eve all 🙂

  22. Taylor Payne December 23, 2009

    I hope for her sake this is not her direction for next album because then she is setting herself up for failure, jus like ciara people want her music to dance to and the few slow songs too but this is jus ummm…. BLAH!

  23. December 23, 2009

    ugh, seriously, go away for a while and give your fans a chance to miss you.
    i’m so sick of seeing her everywhere and having her songs being shoved down our throats.
    she produces hot songs sometimes, no doubt, but damn.

  24. Hazel December 23, 2009

    ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

  25. Dilla December 23, 2009

    It’s different.

  26. Christopher Roberts December 23, 2009

    This is a very nice song, i like it on first listen. More effort should have been devoted to the words of the songs that repeating the words over and over…………overall a good listen. Her voice sounds really good as usually!!!

  27. To Coo December 23, 2009

    I think she was high whn she came up wit this trash lol….I guess bey lets try again

  28. MeSouth December 23, 2009

    I guess it’s a demo, everybody was disappointed when Sweet Dream came out

  29. Kyle December 23, 2009

    Trent needs to learn what words to use and how to structure sentences appropriately. This has to be the worst written piece on TGJ in ages. Get Sam back!

  30. ::SquareBizz2020:: December 23, 2009

    this sounds like a rough draft
    she just threw a couple of licks over the track to get a feel and a sound
    i think the finished product will be dope
    she shut the vocals down as usual

  31. S*** December 23, 2009

    This is far from being Hot, It sounds weird & Alternative- A genre that is based on uninspiring weirdness. Other than the song with alicia which is very energetic lively, & innovative. this style doesn’t suit her. It sounds stupid like she was just playing in the studio kinda like control- another equally weak song, Her best unrealesed songs are Stop sign, forever to bleed, roc, poison, & the bday cuts like creole & back up- but even none of these are that great. I dont think its a good idea to distribute left over tracks, cuz just imagine how horrible the others must be…

  32. y2kmalone December 23, 2009

    this song is f****** wack and you bey-stands know it

  33. Joe Sullivan December 23, 2009

    I like it! its fun….! buts i dont think its single material, its for the fans… and its super cool to hear her laugh on a track

  34. Maggie December 23, 2009

    This is interesting–I dunno that it’s her best though. I think that Beyonce does really well with her artsier stuff (not that I consider this her artsier stuff) and I hope to see more of that on her next album. She seems to play it safe most of the time with releases except for Diva and Video Phone, but I think Solange is havin an affect on her art-wise.

  35. SWAGGEDUPSTUD December 23, 2009

    I LOVE IT, ITS DIFFERENT AND PLUS ITS MA BBY BEYONCE I LOVE HOW SHE WAS LAUGHING AND JUS HAVING FUN WITH IT AND IT SOUNDS LIKE A HIT.. LOVE U BEYONCE!!1

  36. SWAGGEDUPSTUD December 23, 2009

    HI HATERZ!!! LOVE U BEYONCE I INSTANTLY ADDED IT MY MYTOUCH 3D APPLICATION.. UR THE BEST AND UR # 1

  37. ruby December 23, 2009

    FAIL!!!!!!!!!!! Pure crap thank god it won’t EVER be offically release.

  38. Melody December 24, 2009

    Excuse me! Michael composed and produced Dont Stop Till You Get Enough, not Quincy….

    See, he has a thing called talent, something artists today are seriously lacking.

  39. HaYYYYYY December 24, 2009
