BEYONCE'S NEW SINGLE SHOWS HER LACK OF UPGRADE
GIRL (WHO RUN THE WORLD)
2 On a Scale of 1-5
In 2007, former Destiny's Child lead singer Beyonce had scored a hit with her single "Upgrade." Well it seems that she failed to follow her own advice on her current single "Girl (Who Run The World)" which sounds like a mash up of "Lose My Breath," "Get Me Bodied" and "Single Ladies (Put Your Hands Up)." Since she released her 2003 debut single "Crazy In Love" Knowles had became popular with releasing tunes that makes people dance, which is cool, being that she's been in the game since 1997, you would have thought that she would have did something that was more mature. Instead she did something that an average and up and coming artist would have done for their debut single. Not Beyonce who feels like she has to keep doing song that can make the kids dance. There is nothing wrong with Beyonce releasing somne hot dance tracks, but it would have been better had the song had more instrumentation and it would have been better had the lyrics been more mature (come on B you're gonna be 30 years old this year and you're a married woman. Don't you feel it's time for your music to mature)?
I feel that whenever an artist comes out with new material they're supposed to evolve and/or adapt withouth losing their identity, and it seems that Beyonce did something really quick to keep her name out in the public, but this single doesn't cut it and it's about time for her to listen to her advice and "Upgrade" her style and sound.
