New Song: Beyonce – ‘Waiting’

Published: Wednesday 23rd Dec 2009 by Sam

Christmas seems to have come a few days early for Beyonce fans, as not one but two new cuts from the 28 year old superstar have surfaced today – the previously posted ‘Black Culture’ and now ‘Waiting’. Though little is known about the track in terms of when it was recorded (‘B’Day’ or ‘I Am…’ sessions), it has been confirmed that the cut was produced by hit-makers Stargate.

With this sounding very much like an early demo, it’s hard to judge it as anything other than that. For if I was to, the words ‘dated’ and ‘repetitive’ would pretty much sum it up.

Hit or Miss?

    Why do I have a feeling, these are previously recorded songs that didn’t make it on the IASF album, it’s OK..as the rest of the music.

  2. Erica December 23, 2009

    Kinda like..one of those songs on the album that isn’t bad, but not your favorite. 3/5. =] No other album like Dangerously in Love!!! man….

  3. Erica December 23, 2009

    EXPECT more songs to “Leak”, as Beyonce takes a “break”, songs will LEAK to keep people talking about her, and anticipating a new album…so …what’s next…the first two were okay.

    “For if I was to?”

    WTF?

  5. memo December 23, 2009

    it’s certainly not ground-breaking but it’s got quite a nice catchy feel to it. i like.

  6. Rashad December 23, 2009

    No-Yo write this song but Beyonce version sounds like garbage. She shouldve stuck with the way NeYo arranged it.

  7. BLACK December 23, 2009

    I like it yeah neyo did write this, but he had diffrent sound to his version, i kinda like this version better…

  8. S*** December 23, 2009

    Compared to that other mess(Black Couture) this is grammy worthy 4/5.
    How come all of Bey’s leaked songs sound like she wrote it all by herself??
    However Vocally & Production wise this is a nice cut. It would be nice if Bey did songs that were more Darker & less colorful though, She did kinda do that on some of the songs on the sasha disc but I want darker like *SIDENOTE* Rihanna- Rude Boy, Fire Bomb & Stupid in love should be her next singles after the poor success of her pre single Wait your turn & the 1st & 2nd singles RR & Hard…

  9. Question December 23, 2009

    Am I the only guy who hears Kelly singing?

  10. Mya December 23, 2009

    THE ONE YOU GUYS HAVE UP THAT MADE BEYONCE VOICE SOUND DIFF. MADE HER VOICE YOUNGER . BUT I LOVE THE SONG OMG . I HEARD NE-YO’S IT’S TO SLOW MAKES YOU WANNA CRY. I HOPE BEYONE’S NEW ALBUM HAS SLOT OF DIFF AND NEW SOUNDS ON HER NEXT ALBUM KINDA LIKE I AM… BUT TO THE 10TH POWER. I LOVE HOW SHE DOESN’T STICK TO ONE ON A DISC. I THINK THIS IS ONE OF THE MANY REASONS WHY I AM… SASHA FIERCE IS UP FOR ALBUM MOF THE YEAR IT DOESN’T HAVE ONE SOUND YOU CAN’T PUT A TITLE ON IT I.E. (POP, R&B, DANCE,ROCK ) SOUND. IT HAS SOO MANY TYPES OF MUSIC IT’S MY FAV. BEYONCE’ ALBUM

  12. SWAGGEDUPSTUD December 23, 2009

  13. lyric_lee December 23, 2009

    omg i do hear kelly kinda when the song first came on and especially during the chorus!!! wierd or is it!! lol

  14. Anne December 23, 2009

    I think the beginning sounds a little like Kelly b/c they have similar voices but Beyonce’s voice is stronger. Beyonce likes to slowly build her voice up on some parts of some songs, sort of like a vocal tease until it reaches full strength. So the pre-build up part sounds a lot like Kelly. I agree that the somewhat restrained tone had a more youthful sound to it. I think the song sounds like a pretty good album cut to groove to but not a main release to carry a CD.

    Her voice captures my heart, but this track is special especially at the beginning her voice flows incredibly . She is Amazing…she just keeps getting better…I don’t just want I need another album.

  16. Devil’s Pie December 23, 2009

    @Erica Leak or not, people will talk about her regardless. You control your daily dose of Beyonce. Anywho, the song is alright. Her vocals were tight (as usual), but overall I like Black Culture better. Here’s hoping to some more leaks.

  17. ruby December 23, 2009

    surely an improvement from BLACK CULTURE.

  18. sugar December 23, 2009

    why bring rihanna with her no talent into beys post? came on people this is the queen

  19. Question December 23, 2009

    @ Anne

    How powerful Beyonce’s voice is does not have to do with anything in the song, I believe she sounds like Kelly because she’s singing at a low register.

  20. Me.Me. December 24, 2009

    I love it! Can’t wait for new album! QUEEN BEYONCE!!!

  21. whystillinbusiness December 24, 2009

    I like this better than culture shock or what ever it was called..

  22. BEBE December 24, 2009

    THIS SONG WAS WRITTEN BY NE-YO A WHILE BACK
    I HEARD THE DEMO
    THE ONLY DIFFERENCE IS THAT BEYONCE PUT SOME HARMONY IN IT AS USUAL
    I GUESS TO SAY THAT SHE WROTE THE SONG AGAIN
    BUT IT STILL SONGS GOOD AND BUT I STILL PREFER NE-YO’S VERSION BETTER

  23. ::SquareBizz2020:: December 24, 2009

    i really like this. it has a kinda 90’s feel to it kinda like a “tender kisses”/ “i love your smile” mix its nice. somebody else mentioned the vocal tease! KUDOS!! its her signature! one of the things i love most about alot of her vocal arrangements1 she justs hits you with a little bit at a time, ant then kills it! …the mark of a legend.

  24. MORE TRUTH December 24, 2009

    OH IS THE SONG OVER??? DIDNT REALIZE IT WAS STILL PLAYING WHEN I WAS DOING SOMETHING ELSE. WHY? CUZ BEY’S MUSIC IS GETTING FREAKIN BORING AND RUN OF THE MILL. SHE NEEDS TO SIT HER ASS DOWN AND TAKE A 2-3 YR BREATHER. I DONT GET WHAT THE FIRST 2 TRACKS WILL ATTRACT. TOTALLY LACK LUSTRE. WITHOUT THE BOOTY SHAKING VIDS I CANT SEE WHAT’S GONNA ATTRACT PEEPS ATTENTION TO THIS GENERIC CRAP. BEY’S MUSIC IS OVER. GET ANOTHER CAREER. NEXT.

    BeYaWWWNce, people who say her vocie is tight are tone deaf!!! Really and Kelly has a much bettter voice your ears don’t bleed and you don’t need an asprin!! Really, both songs sound like TRASH and the fakest in game hands down!!! Please this tiried played out over rated forever wearing wave chick needs to stop lying about writing music she can’t read or write, her “For Show” marriage is not going to help her sales those disposaable records for too long!!!
