  3. FutureCIARA November 22, 2013

    This blog site is raggedy now!

    Whatever TGJ did during the update really f***** this entire site up, you guys need to fix it, because All I get when I log on is a Black screen! Im assuming because of all the obnoxious ads….

    I wont return until this is fixed, Im sure Im not the only one having this problem! Im operating from MAC OSX

    • BarbzRUs November 23, 2013

      Girl stop. If all you get is a black screen how were you able to comment. I had the same problem last week but they’ve BEEN fixed it.

    • 212Thuggin November 23, 2013

      Everything works fine for me 2bh. The ads make them a lot of money so I doubt they’re going anywhere.

  4. H** HUSH November 22, 2013

    Flop, basic.

  5. Unbiased November 22, 2013

    Such a beautiful song. The harmonies are gorgeous. One thing I always liked about Beyonce is her technique. It’s a ode to Blue Ivy, I hope she has more personal songs on her upcoming album. Reminded me of The Lion King in the beginning lol.

  6. Motivation November 22, 2013

    The intro slay, the rest is OKAY, not that impressive.

  7. #Beautiful November 22, 2013

    • #Beautiful November 22, 2013

      Some of it’s in the same key… But other than that they sound nothing alike! Just give Beyonce her credit… The song is awesome

  12. Hadley November 22, 2013

    I LOVE IT!

  13. christinastherealtalent November 22, 2013

    Lyrically it’s beautiful but the prodution is a mess and completely beneath Beyonce.

  14. Hadley November 22, 2013

    Her harmonies, the instrumentals…. I love it!

  15. Molly November 22, 2013

    • #Beautiful November 22, 2013

      @Molly This sounds nothing like I Was Here! Wtf!? Haha you’re delusional!!

    • Beyanca November 22, 2013

      This sounds more like “‘rise up” than I was here

  16. Cindy November 22, 2013

    I don’t hear no damn Jordin Sparks, ya’ll just can’t give credit. This is a great song for her daughter and for the parents in general. Well done Bey.

  17. Kisses Down Low November 22, 2013

    Aw I hope this is a reflection of the tone of her album. I think this will be her most personal album to date now she’s a mother. The second verse especially is so nice. Good job girl.

  18. Truth Teller November 22, 2013

    Mariah? Lmao. She is a hasbeen. Where is THE ART OF LETTING MY VOICE GO on the charts ???

  19. Chile Please!! November 22, 2013

    No Mam!!! ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ……….wake me up when it’s over! Uggggh! Her voice does completely nothing for me…no type of conviction or soul in her voice! So tired of Beyawce!

  20. Chile Please!! November 22, 2013

    Yes….thank you! A hawt a** mess! I really don’t see whats the big fuss about her??? It’s plenty of chicks in the game that with scalp this bish vocally! Everyone swears she’s the best that ever did or something….GTFOH!

  21. Revolution November 22, 2013

    Beyoncé’s vocals make the song. Gotta rate her for that. Anyone else singing this would be dry. Its cute doubt its the first single but really nice nonetheless.

  22. josh November 22, 2013

    I LOVE this song. its so amazing. its for Blue <3

    I made this today, enjoy. 🙂

  23. josh November 22, 2013

  24. Slaylor swift November 22, 2013

    Girl it sounds like one of her old songs i swear her discography is so dull.

  25. Revolution November 22, 2013

    And no there are not PLENTY b****** right now who could ‘scalp’ her that’s why there’s fuss, you basically answered your own question…

  26. Teacher November 22, 2013

    Nice song. Sounds like Rise Up. Nothing new. B****! 😀

  27. Truth Teller November 22, 2013

    This song is trash. Beyonce has a weak voice and i fell asleep
    listening to it. You fans are delusional at the least.

    • Jonathan November 22, 2013

      say what?!?!!?!?!?!?!?!? Beyonce weak voice??? your def? have you ever heard Listen, I Was Here, Start Over, 1+1, If I Were A Boy, Speechless, Dangerously In Love, Love On Top, Green Light, Suga Mama, Freakum Dress, Resentment, Naughty Girl, Why Dont You Love Me, Halo, Hello, I Care, Rather Die Young or Dance For You?? all show how strong her mother f****** voice is! and this song is AMAZING, a song with some real meaning instead of all that f*** me thing in all the other songs by Rihanna, Lady Gaga etc…

  28. put your EBT card away, and pull that STAn card out h**! November 22, 2013

    BOring reminds me of “I WAS HERE” and now i’m gone. Try again.

  29. put your EBT card away, and pull that STAn card out h**! November 22, 2013

    I know this is going to a DVD, but if she thinks about putting music out like this for her album this s*** will flop harder than that other trannys album! yeah truth!

  30. Ju don’t even know November 22, 2013

    Stupid video. All it did was show what a glorified w**** your fave is.

  31. put your EBT card away, and pull that STAn card out h**! November 22, 2013

    She just can’t sing slow songs. I mean the hive will disagree and say ” HALO” was a slow song LOL, but come on this b**** isn’t great at it. Just a bunch of flops one after another.

  32. Ju don’t even know November 22, 2013

    @josh

  33. Brandys Starr November 22, 2013

    I enjoyed this, her vocals sound wonderful. Nice, simple ode to her daughter.

  34. Rach November 22, 2013

    Niceee. Not first single material though.

  35. Ju don’t even know November 22, 2013

    UHF Sam fix ur ratchet site, I’ve been giving replies and its showing only as a new comment. Smh really?

  36. put your EBT card away, and pull that STAn card out h**! November 22, 2013

    what a string of flops???

  37. Rach November 22, 2013

    Beyoncé can’t sing slow songs? Umm you sound more delusional than the most delusional Hive saying that.

  38. Miss M November 22, 2013

    This is so cute. Would sound great in a movie! I hope its on the album.

  39. put your EBT card away, and pull that STAn card out h**! November 22, 2013

    Beyonce can’t sing slow songs, and can’t produce a great slow song! Yes i said it now inhale and exhale it you delusional b****!

    • Tallb November 22, 2013

      be with you, listen, dangerously in love, resentment, 1+1, i miss you, dance for you…………………you must be a troll

  40. Rach November 22, 2013

    Says who? You? Lmao. Have a seat. That stan card STILL not arrived yet?

  41. Nicki Minaj November 22, 2013

    Mariah is long overdue. The GP could do without her. Bring on Beyoncé!

  42. put your EBT card away, and pull that STAn card out h**! November 22, 2013

    ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ boring ass b****! I’m out this h** is dry as [email protected]!

  43. Yeah I Said It November 22, 2013

    Beautiful. Yes Beyoncé thumbs up from me. God didn’t make everyone beautiful though some people on this blog act so damn UGLY.

  44. Marcus November 22, 2013

    I Don’t Get The Point Of Repeatedly Posting Negative Comments On An Artist Post That You Dislike. If You Don’t Like A Particular Artist, Don’t Pay Them Nor Their Music No Mind! Simple As That.

    SN: The Full Version Of “God Made You Beautiful” Is Even Better Than The Snippet! Looking Forward To More Songs Like This One. 🙂

  45. Tish November 22, 2013

    Lol you do know Beyonce does the harmonies and arrangements to most of her songs. She just doesn’t do interpretations of Demo tracks, like some of your favorite artists.

  46. Yeah I Said It November 22, 2013

    Why is Ciara doing a tribute to Beyonces GQ cover though?

  47. Lil Mo Stan and trey burkes husband (Kendricks d*** game wasnt on point) November 22, 2013

    I like beyonce, but she’s not slick. Waiting to hear reception before releasing the whole song. Which tells me she knew her other snippets would flop. Lol that was cute, trollyonce. 5 more years tops before she’s done. 🙂

  48. put your EBT card away, and pull that STAn card out h**! November 22, 2013

    Oh one more thing before i leave this dry ass post. Beyonce fans will be the death of her career. They just don’t know when to let their fav know when their music sucks! Look at gaga for example! I hope beyonce actually pays music producers, and writers so she can have some quality work behind her once and for all! ( bye b****!)

  50. Brit brat November 22, 2013

    Ciaras GQ> Beys

    and this song is weak.

  51. Yeah I Said It November 22, 2013

    Beyoncé cant sing slow songs the wtf is

    Speechless
    Be With You
    Satellites
    Disappear
    Smash Into You
    Dangerously In Love
    Listen
    Halo
    Resentment

    To name but a few? Songs that certain ‘artist’s’ could never touch vocally these days.

  52. Rach November 22, 2013

    Why are you worried about Beyoncé stans?

  53. Rosie (TROPICO – December 5) November 22, 2013

    It’s boring tbh but she sounds nice, as always. At least it’s only going on the DVD.

  54. Xtina Warrior November 22, 2013

    Omg i love disappear.. something her and her fans need to do.

  55. Rach November 22, 2013

    Beyoncé stans have got her this far boo boo. They doing something right.

    • GAGARULES November 22, 2013

      LOL THEN WHY DIDN’T 4LOP SELL BIG? LMAO

  56. Rosie (TROPICO – December 5) November 22, 2013

    Dead at Cierror’s tranny ass in that GQ spread. Copying and pasting from Beyoncé and Lana.

  57. Marley November 22, 2013

    Calm down its for the DVD. Its nice and suitable. Her vocal arrangements are always on point.

  58. I am above u November 22, 2013

    I see one commentator has a lot of impact on here. Why are you all going so crazy because one person said beyonce doesn’t have good slow songs? Not everyone will agree, and she doesn’t have too many slow songs that have done great. get over it!

  59. Yeah I Said It November 22, 2013

    @Rosie IKR? The struggle is real with that spread.

  60. Yeah I Said It November 22, 2013

    @I am above You maybe because its the most STUPID comment ever to be made just out of pure hate. And ‘IT’ said she cant SING slow songs, not she does not have good slow songs. And songs don’t have to ‘do great’ to be good. Fucken BYE!

  61. MC!!!!! November 22, 2013

    its okay but beyonce heaven is uptempos that’s for sure

  62. Iconic cici November 22, 2013

    B**** AINT NO ONE COPYING LANA NO ONE EVEN KNOWS WHO SHE IS #NEXT #FAILED.

  63. I am above u November 22, 2013

    Her voice too me i just ok. I don’t thinks she can sing slow songs that great but again THAT”S my OPINION. You are entitled to yours, but because i disagree it makes it stupid no! you sound childish!

  64. Rosie (TROPICO – December 5) November 22, 2013

    No one knows Z-list-ara either, looking at her album sales.
    Call me when his discography sells 5 million worldwide.

  65. Aquarius November 22, 2013

    This song is nice <333

  66. Tish November 22, 2013

    @BritBrat The only thing weak is Britney knees..let’s not

  67. Yeah I Said It November 22, 2013

    @ I am Above You but I’m not arguing with your opinion (unless you are the same person) Beyoncé can sing slow songs its not a matter of opinion, she can sing slow songs. Whether you like them or not is your opinion, but I did not dispute that did I so what’s your point?

  68. Barb 4 lyfe November 22, 2013

    Hahaha yall seen Ciara tribute Beyonce GQ cover Lmao.

  69. Omari November 22, 2013

    So Rihanna SOLD OUT ALL her STADIUM dates, Beyonce didn’t.

  74. LDN Chick November 22, 2013

    Perfection

  75. LDN Chick November 22, 2013

    LOL Rihannas not even Touring in Brazil like that because she couldn’t even sell out arenas #TRY AGAIN

  76. LDN Chick November 22, 2013

    Or south America period

  77. Overdose November 22, 2013

    Tropico is gonna flop.

  78. Overdose November 22, 2013

    Not here for her music it gets weaker and weaker as time goes on.

  79. Yeah I Said It November 22, 2013

    Why is Beyoncé outgrossing Rihanna with less stadiums though? That’s the REAL question.

  80. Lovebird (Britney Jean – 03.12.13) November 22, 2013

    Beyonce lies, Beyonce fans lie but numbers don’t lie.

    The hive have been telling lies, stating Mrs Carter show is sold out and yet out of a capacity of 371,499, only322,003 attended.

    WHEN ARE THE HIVE GOING TO STOP LYING TO PROP UP THEIR FAV? WHEN??

    Rihanna SOLD OUT ALL HER STADIUMS, Beyonce didn’t. 37K capacity stadium dates in Brazil and non of them were sold out. I thought Brazil loved Beyonce.

    Rihanna’s one STADIUM date ib Europe, 54K and SOLD OUT.

  81. Real November 22, 2013

    It’s a cute song but nothing that I would buy

  82. Lovebird (Britney Jean – 03.12.13) November 22, 2013

    I don’t care if Beyonce is out grossing Rihanna, what I want to know is why the hive have been lying about Mrs Carter Show being sold out. Why tell LIES top prop up your fav.

    Your fan base is full of FAKE RECEIPTS.

  83. Overdose November 22, 2013

    The hive are liars just like the Navy and monsters

  84. Yeah I Said It November 22, 2013

    Show me the receipts where they said she sold out Brazil? (The country Rihanna could not even sell out half her arenas in hence no Tour)

  85. Lovebird (Britney Jean – 03.12.13) November 22, 2013

    Fan base full of liars, just like their fav.

  86. Rosie (TROPICO – December 5) November 22, 2013

    OMG I just read that Epic will shut down. Ciara is done for good.

  87. FutureCIARA November 22, 2013

    Meanwhile Ciara’ SPREAD is making headlines, while your favs GQ cover made her begin doing lines.

    Lana still a flop b****,

    Ask your fav when she will retire that tired ass look and reinvent????

  88. Lovebird (Britney Jean – 03.12.13) November 22, 2013

    I’ve posted receipts from Billboard Biz which show Beyonce didn’t sell out her 37K stadiums in Brazil.

  89. Yeah I Said It November 22, 2013

    The same way Rihanna lied about playing to 100k in Singapore when it was 60k? Mkay.

  90. Yeah I Said It November 22, 2013

    I said show me the receipts for the Hive saying she ‘sold out’ Brazil

  91. Lovebird (Britney Jean – 03.12.13) November 22, 2013

    Ask your friend H2O.

  92. Yeah I Said It November 22, 2013

    South America picks and chooses who they want there, even Madonna could not sell out her stadiums there. Its no drag at all. Beyoncé can Tour there, and has sold out 60k stadium there. She did over 5 stadium dates there this time around.

  93. Tish November 22, 2013

    @Lovebird You do know Brazil is a third-world country. Unlike Rihanna, who lowers her tickets prices to $1 to sell out these stadiums, Beyonce does not. It’s quite sad that Rihanna sold out all these stadiums and still couldn’t out gross Beyonce 60% full stadiums lol. Anyways, Bey still had one of the highest attendance rates in Brazil.

  94. Lovebird (Britney Jean – 03.12.13) November 22, 2013

    Why lie? You’ve been running around bullying Rihanna with “Mrs Carter Show is sold out” when Rihanna sold out more dates than Beyonce.

  95. Yeah I Said It November 22, 2013

    Still waiting for them specific receipts for them specifically saying she ‘sold out’ Brazil.

  96. shek November 22, 2013

    But Rihanna did not sell out all her stadium date. Gaga sold more ticket than Rihanna in Twickenham. Rihanna sold 0ver 95,000 and if you divide that by 2 is closer to the capacity of the stadium. Yet Rihanna brag that she sold out Twickenham, 65,000, if that is true then her second date was not sold out. Also, some dates in the US have been reported as sold out, yet the media reported that they were still seats available. When you compare her sold out show to other shows in the same venue, its questionable. Kudos to live nation trying for reporting the figures. While beyonce has nothing to prove, so it doesn’t matter if her tour is sold out or not.

  97. Lovebird (Britney Jean – 03.12.13) November 22, 2013

    Excuses, YOU GUYS, THE HIVE said Mrs Carter Show is SOLD OUT. Why lie? Why bring FAKE RECEIPTS?

    You said Brazil Loves Beyonce, why didn’t she sell our in Brazil then?

  98. Lovebird (Britney Jean – 03.12.13) November 22, 2013

    Billboard reported that Rihanna’s two Twickenham dates were sold out.

  99. Yeah I Said It November 22, 2013

    Cry me River, your team hasn’t been bullying Beyoncé saying her Tour is a flop greatest hits Tour because she’s doing less stadiums yet she’s STILL outgrossing her? Technically still making it more successful?

  100. BeyRihStan November 22, 2013

    The Harmonies is the beginning of the song are EPIC! They remind me of Brandy’s ghostly harmonies. Unfortunately, I get bored after the first verse/chorus :-/

  101. Yeah I Said It November 22, 2013

    Are you slow? That’s not what I’m asking receipts for.

  102. Unbiased November 22, 2013

    @Lovebird I see why you mad, Rihanna came in at number 2 with “Stadium Stats”. Chill, they both did good.

  103. Yeah I Said It November 22, 2013

    And DEATH at Beyoncé still coming ahead of her in the Billboard Boxscore.

  104. BeyRihStan November 22, 2013

    What headlines? Dusty, tired, no hits getting urban blogs? Ciara’s spread was a blatant rip off of Beyonce.

  105. Rosie (TROPICO – December 5) November 22, 2013

    @FutureCiara Snoring at that lame ass drag. You’ve really run out of steam.
    The only sites reporting that tranny GQ spread are a few irrelevant urban blogs. Stay mad that Lana’s GQ cover was their best selling last year.

  106. Lovebird (Britney Jean – 03.12.13) November 22, 2013

    Why would I be mad when I’ve clocked your FAKE tea about Mrs Carter Show being sold Out.

    Next time come with REAL RECEIPTS if you don’t want to be caught with your pants down.

  107. BeyRihStan November 22, 2013

    Lovebird, shut up! I stan for Rih and Bey but Bey will ALWAYS be ahead of Rihanna if she doesn’t step her game up! Bey outgrossed Rih this year and made more money than her with NO NEW MUSIC! There’s nothing wrong with being #2. At least both of them are miles ahead of Ciara and other lessor female singers!

  108. Rosie (TROPICO – December 5) November 22, 2013

    Maybe the Cierror stan can explain why “future smash hit” Overdose is barely clinging to the top 160 on radio after it was sent over a month ago?

  109. Yeah I Said It November 22, 2013

    So you can’t show me any specific receipts then.

    Because last time I checked, the Hive posted on the amount of tickets she sold there and the Brazilian press talking about how well her Tour did.

  110. nersn808s November 22, 2013

    Nice song. I think that’s the one Drem & Tedler produced!

  111. Emeral November 22, 2013

    I like this song! And I’m still intrigued by the one with Ryan Tedder.

  112. XXX November 22, 2013

    Beyoncé earns the No. 1 Hot Tours ranking with $44.9 million in box office grosses from her fall tour through cities in Latin America and Australia, taking the Mrs. Carter Show world tour past the $100 million mark in box office sales since launching in April. The overall gross from the ongoing tour is $104.3 million from more than 883,000 sold tickets at 59 performances, based on box office stats reported to Billboard. Kicking off on April 15 in Serbia, the tour played 23 venues in Europe and 24 in North America through the end of August before beginning tour legs in Latin America and Australia in early September.

    The revenue reported this week comes from 19 concerts during the fall trek of the pop star’s world tour. Kicking off a five-city swing through Brazil on Sept. 8, Beyoncé performed in stadiums to begin her South American jaunt. The São Paulo market produced the best attendance among the Brazilian stadiums with more than 37,000 tickets purchased at Estádio do Morumbi. In October and November, the tour traveled Down Under to play six arenas in Australia and New Zealand, wrapping on Nov. 9 in Perth. The top-grosser was a run of four shows at Sydney’s Allphones Arena with $9.4 million (US$) in box office revenue. The four-night stand (Oct. 31-Nov. 3) was the arena’s highest-grossing concert engagement this year, topping box office revenue from multiple performances by P!nk, Bruce Springsteen and One Direction, among others.

    Keeping it in the family, husband Jay Z joins Beyoncé on the Hot Tours recap, taking the No. 6 ranking from ticket sales at two venues on the European leg of his Magna Carta world tour that kicked off in early October. This week’s tally includes $6.8 million in revenue from arena dates in London and Zürich. In London he played four nights at the O2 Arena (Oct. 10-12, 14) with the number of sold tickets just under 57,000. Zürich’s Hallenstadion drew more than 10,000 fans to see the Grammy-winning rapper during his trek through 12 European cities that wrapped at the end of October.

    Rihanna takes the second slot on this week’s Hot Tours tally with sales reported from the final nine weeks of her Diamonds world tour that ended on Nov. 15. The fall tour covered cities on four continents beginning in Asia with two sellouts at the CotaiArena. Located in the Chinese territory of Macau, the 15,000-seat arena logged an attendance total of 24,872 from performances on Sept. 13 and 14. Concerts in six cities in Australia and New Zealand followed including a three-show stint in Auckland with more than 33,000 tickets sold for sellouts on Oct. 6-8.

    Sold out stadium shows in South Africa drew over 67,000 fans to Johannesburg on Oct. 13 and 40,000 to Cape Town three days later. Abu Dhabi and Tel Aviv were next on the schedule before the Diamonds tour returned to the Western Hemisphere for shows in the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico.

    Speaks for itself really.

    No one sold out in Brazil, but she has the number one tickets for the year. 230 000. So it’s still a testament to her. Unlike Rihanna who had her stadium dates announced way in advance and only sold them out at the last moment. ( but really didn’t sell all of them out) Beyonce had less time. Gaga and Madonna had the same problem and had to reduce ther price etc. of the three Beyonce did better according to report from Brazil. In addition, if you sold more tickets you should have more money, yet even though Rihanna should be a touring force in the UK. Gaga made more money than her for her two Stadium date, Beyonce made more money than her for her 3 Manchester date and LG dates and beyonce combine 6 O2 dates made more than her two stadium dates. Anyway you put it Beyonce won. . Everyone claims that Rihanna broke records yet she has made less money in all her record breaking stadium.( How does that make sense) Taylor Swift sold her ticket for less yet she is making a lot of money for her stadium date in comparison to Rihanna. Again, ppl always compare Rihanna success to Beyonce, but Rihanna and Beyonce are from two different era, compare Rihanna to her peers, Taylor, Gaga, Katy, Justin, and see who tours are higher. Who bring in more money on forbes list, etc. Rihanna is always behind Taylor, Gaga, and Justin and both Justin and Taylor are younger than Rihanna. So stop making excuses that she is only 25. If you are consider the number 1 in your game then you should be bringing in the mumber 1 money nor the second last. Also, I questioned Billboard , Why has the majority of Rihanna number 1 single only stay for less than 3 weeks. She has 12 number 1 but her weeks at number 1 is laughable. so even if she passed back Madonna, or even Mariah, she will still have less weeks and maybe that has to do with billboard, who has supported Rihanna. Is Rihanna really the number 1 digital artist or is it Taylor Swift? because there numbers are very close and if you divide number by album, then Taylor is really number 1 . I love Rihanna music and support her artistry and I agree that she has achieved a lot because she has a good marketing strategy but I would like ppl to stop comparing Rihanna to Beyonce. Compare her with her peers and let see where she rates. Anybody who believes that all those shows live nation reported as sold- out were really sold-out is falling for the trap that live-nation is hoping to achieve in order to promote Rihanna as a touring force. Its a marketing strategy. Lastly, the reason Rihanna did not use any gimmicks in DWT was so that she could be taken seriously as a performer, yet Loud with all the gimmicks receive more positive critics review than DWT. When you strip down Rihanna, you see all her weakness. She is not the best performer, she has some of the best songs. As a Caribbean performer, she is not that good, because we ten to be explosive, dynamic and all over the place. When you go to a Caribbean show, you rarely sit down, you are jumping and waving. She still has a long way to go before she can be taken seriously, and is has noting to do with her age because Taylor and Justin B have passed her performers. Having confident and being edgy is not enough. The reason I don’t attend her shows is because her shows are unpredictable. I rather buy her singles because they are catchy and up-tempo.

  114. XXX November 22, 2013

    @Shek don’t worry, the same Billboard also reported on Beyoncé’s attendance being the highest for those stadiums in the Billboard article above. IT can remain seething.

  115. XXX November 22, 2013

    And who came first and who came second still?

  116. King B November 22, 2013

    it’s ok, it sounds like rise up…please let the album nothing close to this! I 100% it won’t though

  117. Anne November 22, 2013

    Even more amazing than I was already expecting from the snippet. I almost shed a tear, I guess because I know exactly how she feels since God made both of my sons beautiful! What an impactful song, the lyrics, music, vocals– everything!

  118. King B November 22, 2013

    *i’m

  119. Shek November 22, 2013

    Do you believe that? 95. 000. Come on do your own maths. Being a fan don’t mean that you have to fall for all tricks, compare Gaga dates. They were reported as sold out and we all know that they weren’t sold out either and she had over 100 000. Look at the capacity for concerts, minus the stage and you will know that 95 000 is not that great for two shows in such a big stadium. Well state de France was impressive. Abu Dhabi numbers were not that impressive either. Even south Africa could have held more but anything over 50000 is reported as sold out because its a great number. Even when you take into consideration the stage. . It s just a strategy. And that goes for Beyonce’s date also. I always look up the stadium capacity.

  120. Anne November 22, 2013

    Had to listen again. Didn’t hold back the tear the second time around. I absolutely love this song!

  121. shek November 22, 2013

    @XXX but the difference is you can compare Beyoncé date at that venue to Justin, Pink, Rihanna, etc and dive it by 4. For example beyonce did not sell out vector arena because the capacity is 11 800 yet Rihanna sold less than 11 200 and they were reported as sold out by billboard but poll star reported that she sold 91% and it had nothing to do with the stage. Its live-nation trying to increase Rihanna % as a touring force.

  122. Drew November 22, 2013

    Oh I see why Birdshit is pressed, Beyonce still topped Rihanna. And nice song btw.

  123. Beyanca November 22, 2013

    The song is just beautiful bey sound amazing I can’t stope listening to it long live queen bey

  125. TheHive November 22, 2013

    Chile Birdshit aint clocking nothing. The fact remains that beyonce is slaying and s****** is still flopping down the charts.

  126. Lovebird (Britney Jean – 03.12.13) November 22, 2013

    And the fact remains the hive rely on FAKR RECEIPTS.

    • #Beautiful November 22, 2013

      @ LoveBird Your only making Beyonce look better. What you failed to post is that though she didn’t sell them all out… She still made was ranked number one and Rihanna fell short at number two!! Haha it doesn’t even matter at that point… She still slays all!!! Bow Doooooow! That Beyonce reign just won’t let up!!!

      • Lovebird (Britney Jean – 03.12.13) November 22, 2013

        My issue is with the hive LYING and stating that MCS is SOLD OUT when it’s not.

        WHY LIE??

      • Lovebird (Britney Jean – 03.12.13) November 22, 2013

        Ur stupid af if u honestly think Beyonce’s 5th album is going to be a flop after the Super Bowl, Inauguration, and SOLD OUT WORLD TOUR. Use ur damn logic and stop acting like a damn R****** SMH.

  127. Ajanni November 22, 2013

    I don’t come here as much because of the damn ads slowing everything down. Too many scripts running! Any “good” Web developer would fix this mess!!!

  128. Ratedx (love is beautiful) November 22, 2013

    her voice sounds so different..all that yelling and screaming to sound soulful and a vocalist, f***** up her voice…

    I have to roll my eyes whenever somebody bring up the charts to call somebody a flop….f*** talent, the charts is what’s hot in the streets….

    I see some of the bey stans talking s*** about Mariah, Britney, gaga, not being on the charts..when in 2011 the album 4 had zero number 1’s on the billboard 100…

    and saying charts don’t mean s***…but when its other artists, the charts are relevant…

  129. rih rox ((U Mad Bro?)) November 22, 2013

    Flop! And she looks obese… I wonder how much Photoshop work has gone into turning the morbidly obese into obese? :/

  130. rih rox ((U Mad Bro?)) November 22, 2013

    WTF? No video? Just a pic of a “woman” who’s horribly photoshop? ….okay if nobody hasn’t noticed… her upper body was totally to look skinny but,they forgot about her HUGE kanckles…AHAHAHA!

  132. Jamie November 22, 2013

    Because her tickets are high as s***. Does that answer your question?

    • Lovebird (Britney Jean – 03.12.13) November 23, 2013

      Is that why you lied and stated her world tour is SOLD OUT?? Now you’re making excuses when you should own up to your lies.

  133. Pop professor November 23, 2013

    Wow this song is pretty and she sounds great as usual.
    So many claim to know music up here but think that this sounds like Rise Up?
    I’m guessing the drums,Rise Up is like 2 or 3 keys higher than this song.

    @rated x shut your ass up you are such a hater.
    Beyonce would vocally destroy that chick u have in your gravi and you my dear bitter b**** will just have to deal.

  134. JER November 23, 2013

    So is this another non-single/promo/teaser/street/countdown/buzz single?

  135. SHAWYTY November 23, 2013

    Thank god this isn’t a single….. the last song I’ve like from Beyoncé was in 2010…. #DoBetterBey

  136. Ratedx (love is beautiful) November 23, 2013

    s****** is flopping on the same charts beyonce was flopping on…

    if you’re going to talk s*** at least keep it real….

    at least Britney has a couple of diamond albums…beyonce has been out sice 1998,(we all know her delusional stans thinks beyonce was destiny’s child only member)

    how come she doesn’t have any diamond albums….all those million sold, not 1 diamond album.(hence the smoke and mirrors.hell even Adele has a diamond album

  137. cake like lady gaga November 23, 2013

    WHY IS @TROLLBIRD LYING??????????

    Riherpes certainly didn’t sellout Soccer City and Cape Town Stadium when she was in his home country. There were still some tickets available on Computicket on the nights of the concerts.

    That’s because he doesn’t support his faves, he was busy trolling TGJ while Riherpes was performing to empty seats. He didn’t buy even the cheapest ticket which was R360 (± $40)

    STOP LYING!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  138. Ratedx (love is beautiful) November 23, 2013

    all those singles she dropped flopped..bow down, grown woman, standing on the sun…..and your ass has the nerve to talk about legends like Britney and Mariah,,

    those legends has s*** else to prove, they all made huge impacts on and off the charts…

    beyonce is going to be known as an icon who steal, lie, cheat, copy just to get a hit…

    still laughing at the calendar, $15 calendars…aahahahhahahahahahahahahaahahhaahhaha

    the only thing she got going for her right now is her tour..which she’s going to do a lot of dates, and smoke and mirrors numbers, just to prove she’s better than everybody else…

I don’t know if it’s passion or delusional but hey….The public is wanting more vocally from these artist because some of the last number one hits has been some type of ballad…

  145. BEYHIVE_MINAJ November 23, 2013

    I love it! Beautiful! And I can see the trolls doing the most. Y’all wanted a full song huh? And the hive will not be the cause of bey’s downfall,which,will not happen anytime soon. We’ve been keeping her on for 16 years now. She’ll be good. Maybe y’all should be the ones to shut up now,because by the look of how you’ve been making fun of bey not having a hit since 08 and 4 underperforming,I can predict a lot of breakdowns from the trolls once the single drops and first week sales are in. You heard it from me. Bookmark this page h***!

  146. HOTSTUFF November 23, 2013

    Personally I never said she was selling out in Latin America neither caught anyone say so.

    But still, it’s been reported she’s had the biggest tour in Brazil this year with 230.000 tickets sold, so ..

  152. h2o November 23, 2013

    You don’t care about gross but you care about dates being sold out or not ?

    Nice thing

  153. JOHNVIDAL November 23, 2013

    I think the song is beautiful. It would be a very nice album track towards the end of the tracklist.
    The trolls are becoming unbearable, to the point I find myself defending artists I don´t even like. No, Beyonce´s catalogue is not too great, her voice is not the best we´ve ever heard either… but how the hell can you say Beyonce or her catalogue are dull when you stan for Taylor Swift?????? LOL Or Katy Perry? I mean, come on.
    Also, to the people discussing Rihanna vs Beyonce when it comes to touring/performing: isn´t it very clear Beyonce destroys Rihanna as a performer and her tours have always been bigger than Rihanna´s to date? Seriously, at least learn where the strenghs of your fave artists are, cos it makes you look ignorant/delusional.

    • Teflon Boy November 23, 2013

      It’s a weird one, Katy Perry’s ‘music’ is better than Katy Perry’s talent and image would suggest. Same with Taylor Swift, as without decent songs neither would have a career. Rihanna is beautiful and not a great singer either but her music and image is edgy and her songs somewhat authentic and progressive. However, Beyonce’s music is way less sophisticated than her talent and image and hype would suggest; in fact it actually borders on basic. It’s quite easy to understand the conundrum people have with her, everyone who isn’t kinda blinded by the woman herself is still waiting for the actual music to catch up with her.

  154. Everyone’s A Critic November 23, 2013

    I’m a fan, I like the message and purpose of the song, but I DONT LIKE IT. It’s a little basic. Nothing wow… she’s toying with us now

    When Beyonce sings a song, she puts her OWN vocal twist, harmonies and arrangements on it which makes it her signature sound. Thats what I love about her. She doesn’t just sing over the basic demo version like a lot of your faves

It’s like a grating sound..or nails on a chalk board type annoying. Lol. I can’t #take her, singing these types of songs. Her voice is just so #offputting and #unpleasant to my ears. Only sounds good on faster/uptempo songs…#Shade but no shade. lol

  174. Megan November 23, 2013

    She sounds gorgeous

  175. Teflon Boy November 23, 2013

    I have to agree, it never sounds as though they are trying to reinvent the wheel when it comes to Beyonce’s production. I think that’s what keeps the bulk of her work sounding slightly cheap and non-progressive tbh.

    The song itself is nice, (I mean it’s no ‘Zion’ by Lauryn Hill but) the sentiment is pleasant nonetheless. However, it never fails to surprise me how someone who seemingly spends so long rehearsing and perfecting every aspect of their live showings is happy to accept such dated and anonymous track production for their songs.

    Her and Gaga have this is common with so much attention spent on image, marketing and hype with scant regard for the ‘music’ is supposedly all in aid of.
