    Did he bother to say it would be Trash? Garbage? Bad vocals? even poor live vocals? Dont waste your hard earned money on this girl she does not care about her fans or music;

      Will there be bad vocals? Girl, That goes without saying.

    this era is ruined by her lack of directon and quality of her music i do agree with the other comments on the tamar thread that she needs to stop doing drugs

    Drugs will destroy her career

    I have a feeling #B6 will drop summer 2016. A pop/r&b lead single released with a video in July, with the album arriving in September to critical and mass acclaim

    So the wait may have been her going back and being distributed by Def Jam. Makes sense, cause I read that Universal was going to do it. I guess Def will push for the US and Uni will for WW. That’s good cause Def Jam have the connections and knows how to push a single.

    Beyonce is thinking of her next gimmick as we speak.
