I’ve been wondering how she was going to do this (include Black country artist). Haven’t heard the entire album but I’m glad she has Linda Martell on, however did pack all the younger black female country artist into one song, has a number collabs w/Willie Nelson and showcases Shaboozey 2-3x’s.

Maybe she’ll come out with a Cowboy Carter II and give a lil more spotlight.

A rock album would be supadope esp a collab with Gary Clark Jr., Nona Hendryx & Fishbone (hmm).

Hmm cause someting tells me Fishbone’s main man would feel some kinda way.

it was like 9:00am and the accents were thick. I could hear them but couldn’t see them from our booth and my coworker comes back and says “you have to see this” and I walk around the corner and do a “wtf”

pretty sure I have them on video.

nice come up for them.

3. "OKP is weird. "
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Like I am not even a Bey superfan but as I listened to it this morning I was hard press for any sort of criticism of the project to even cross my mind.

I was waiting for someone else to make the Country Carter post to talk about the album but didn't think it would take the form of opening remarks to be criticisms.

Here is a dope read about Beyonce's CMA performance that sparked all of this.

https://www.vulture.com/article/beyonce-cmas-the-chicks-oral-history.html

My two favorite quotes from the article are:

“The week we worked with Beyoncé is the single greatest working week of my professional life.”

"She’s quite intense in terms of her preparation for things. She’s probably one of the hardest-working artists I’ve ever encountered. I think that explains a lot of her success, too. She’s definitely committed to it. It pushes you to bring your A game."

"I thought she was one of the most high-functioning individuals I’ve been lucky to have been around."

I will just wait until society tells me what song I should like. But I skipped through all of the tracks except for Amen. Go figure.

Every song has 9 song overlays with different vocals. What happened to just singing a simple song?

I get Beyonce's motive so I won't criticize the effort. She is a creator and every album has at least one classic song. She is like Prince+ Michael Jackson+ Madonna +Tina Turner+ Diana Ross.

We won't like everything but she is iconic.

I wouldn’t have imagined hard bars and Swizz on a “country album”.

Also, is the whole thing a story or just “Bodyguard”, “Jolene”, and “Daughter”?

The album is long as hell, so I’ve gotta give it more time before I fully form an opinion on it but so far there are certainly a number of songs I really like.

that’s family..

first black woman to chart on Country since 1987… this was back in 2007.

but yeah, not much of a country fan but she was one of the first that I knew about in that genre because she’s hometown.

In response to Reply # 0


          

https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/music-news/beyonce-cowboy-carter-boosts-streams-black-country-acts-spotify-1235863979/

Since the album’s release on Friday, the number of first-time listeners for acts like Brittney Spencer, Reyna Roberts and Shaboozey — who all appear on Cowboy Carter — has increased in the last week.

Spencer saw an uptick of 170 percent in first-time listeners, Roberts and Tanner Adell both went up 125 percent, and Tiera Kennedy’s first-time listens were increased by 110 percent. Spencer, Reynolds, Adell and Kennedy collaborated with the Grammy-winning superstar on a cover of The Beatles’ “Blackbird,” the second track on Cowboy Carter.

Willie Jones, who appears alongside Beyoncé on “Just for Fun,” saw an uptick of 75 percent in first-time listeners, and Shaboozey, who is featured on “Sweet/Honey/Buckiin’” and “Spaghetti,” went up 70 percent.

In response to Reply # 25


          

and yes, they will benefit from the exposure.

but anytime I liked a song and it was only 2 minutes I felt short changed.

Hopefully they release a longer cut or “extended” version

28. "This is the TikTok age. Songs are short as hell."
In response to Reply # 26


  

          

As a hip-hop fan, songs getting shorter and shorter has been the norm. And that's after something like MAdvillain, where most of the songs are under three minutes.

Shoot, the o.g. version of Old Town Road, which was a mega-shit five years ago, was under two minutes.

This is just the direction things are going.

In response to Reply # 28


          

not sure how that is seen as a diss or criticism.

Its just wanting more of a good thing

Hope they perform a live version that is longer than the original for those who want more.

...two minutes, both lyrically and musically. As stated above, the o.g. version of "Blackbird" is only eight seconds longer than Beyonce's version. There's no need to force a greater run-time if the artist doesn't think it will add anything. Sometimes two minutes is enough.

In response to Reply # 34


          

but I also understand the frustration of wanting those moments to be longer.

Communism - Common
Let Off A Couple - Beatnuts
G’s Up - Snoop

all these songs are perfect.. but I was frustrated all were short as hell the first times hearing them.

I get it.

I don’t like country. Garth Brooks is my steez. That about it.

Wife had the album on when I came home and we ran it back. First listen was solid, but it was repeat listens that did it for me. Bodyguard, Levi’s Jeans, Riverdance are my faves. Riverdance might have created a new genre cuz I called it Afro Country House lol, shit goes.

Tyrant, II Hands II Heaven, and that sweet honey buckin round it out for me. She did her thing with this one. Most listened to Bey album since the nasty one she put out a while back haha.

Hope she wins all the awards.

In response to Reply # 40


          

something about covering the biggest country song (Jolene) in your foray into country. I guess she wasn't aware that Dolly really really wanted Beyonce to cover the song and had said so years ago.

As far as it feeling "calculated", I agree. Everything Beyonce and Jay do comes off calculated imo.

with covers of 2pac Dear Mama, Melle Mel The Message etc.. there would be riots on the streets…

Which goes back to her point, Beyonce should do Beyonce … not chasing grammys by rehashing old hits.

In response to Reply # 45


  

          

Dolly.

The whole point of the album is that Country Music is as much black people music as anybody else. Beyonce doing Country Music isn't doing it as an interloper.

You or Lily Allen wasn't up in arms when Miley Cirus covered Jolene, so why you worried about Beyonce doing it?

Beyonce should do Beyonce means do country with her own writers. Trying to breakout in the genre by remaking hits is garbage

She is just a corporate machine that changes the narrative to fit her objective…

As a house music fan, the Renaissance narrative was a joke. House music is alive and well, the black pioneers are viewed as gods and that nonsense that Beyonce needed to save the genre was bullshit. And of course those unnecessary hit remakes of Donna Summer etc..

In response to Reply # 49


  

          

Her covering Jolene did not equal her not doing her own original songs.

And I don't think it's about saving the genre. I don't know who is saying that. She isn't saving House or Country. She's doing the music she feels like doing.

Artist cover other artist all the time. I am not sure why get indignant when Beyonce does it.

there's 27 songs on her album. a couple covers isn't her trying to break out doing old hits, LOL.

the 'breakout' songs from the album ARE exactly what you said you wanted her to do: beyonce doing country with her own writers.

shit, i don't even like Beyonce's music for the most part, but you implying Beyonce needing to be gimmicky to breakout doing ANYTHING is just dumb.

I didn’t hear that house needed saving.

Country is different because there are a lot of Black country artist that Black folk didn’t know about. Only thing that annoyed me is folks new to this info trying to hold lectures.

If anything, Post Malone and Eminem and them are the vultures in this scenario without even having to cover 2Pac.

and called Malone "fantastic and beautiful" and said he really wanted him to remake Dear Mama because he wanted him to turn his "little song into a powerhouse", then went on to say it would be a "marvelous day in his life" if Post Malone ever remade Dear Mama....
(All of that is what Dolly said about Beyonce remaking Jolene, YEARS BEFORE Beyonce redid it)
Then yeah, I wouldn't be able to say anything. If anything, I'd have to be mad at Pac if I didn't like the idea.

its funny because Jaguar Wright was way ahead of her time. She cursed like crazy back in the day and everyone was turned off by it. Now it feels like they add it after the fact when it isn’t needed.
