Beyonce and JAY-Z

Beyonce and JAY-Z stirred a hornet's nest of controversy on Saturday when they dropped a new album supported by a music video filmed in the revered Louvre Museum in Paris, France.

The American power couple -- restyled as "The Carters" -- released their new album, Everything is Love, exclusively on JAY-Z's Tidal music app.

Everything is Love is clearly a last-ditch effort to rescue their struggling On the Run 2 tour from imminent cancellation.

Among the criticisms that sank Bey and JAY's OTR II world tour was the fact that they did not release new music to support such an ambitious stadium tour.

In desperation, Beyonce and JAY-Z tapped prominent Atlanta rap group Migos to craft their new sound and make the 2 old heads palatable to the younger generation of hip-hop fans.

Migos rapper Quavo provides vocal sound effects on "Apesh*t".

The top-secret music video for the album's first single "Apesh*t" was filmed 2 weeks ago -- while Beyonce's mom, Tina Lawson, and daughter Blue Ivy, distracted the paparazzi inside another old Paris relic.

"Apesh*t" features Beyonce struggling to stay relevant in a hip-hop dominated culture as she and her voluptuous dancers prance and preen around the Louvre's treasures, such as Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa who has her own room at the Louvre.

Beyonce and JAY-Z's pushy "music as art" video concept did not go over well with hip-hop fans or classical art lovers.

"Anyone get creepy vibes from this??" wrote a YouTuber with the username "Lauren Hill".

One YouTuber raged: "At least the Louvre got paid big-ass money that can use for the sake of REAL art and not this self-serving, egotistical music video where priceless pieces are being used as a nice décor for her stupid dance moves."

"I love Bey with all my heart, but as an European and Italian it doesn't feel very comfortable to see historic, classical art getting destroyed by ghetto hip hop shit," another viewer wrote.

Diana N. wrote: "I love my Queen Bey, but she needs to ditch this uncivilized ghetto trash. I understand why people are mad. DaVinci probably vomits in his grave right now. This is pure crap.?"

Other YT users noted Beyonce wore expensive designer clothes that contrasted wildly against a backdrop of classical art featuring peasants in tattered rags.

Naomi B. writes: "Yep I agreee! whilst wearing Burberry! Where are the black designers and artists! I don't dislike them but it's kind of a contradiction."

    Hi Sandra...you are going to cancel OTHRII if it's the last thing you do.....not going to happen though...they cleaned up in London.....audience was crazy!

  • Marlika

    Wow these YT people are something else. They kill me boy. So when she’s not pleasing them her work is ghetto trash? ? I’ve never been a fan of Beyonce, but I hope she keeps doing what she doing to piss the YT’s off even more.

    These devils act like black folks can’t appreciate or be interested in art.????

    Phuck these devils and their opinions!

  • jazmine

    Anybody can rent that place for 10k (euros not dollar, i dont know the conversion)

  • Evillene

    The video is dope!!! Any furor is only about Bey and Jay -- the descendants of African slaves -- putting themselves in a world that others think SHOULD exclude them. They will NOT be excluded! She will dance in ghetto couture in that temple to yt European supremacy because she CAN and all others CANNOT. Keep slaying, Bey!

  • TMW

    Heard Kanye wanted to get married there and they told him no...

  • the guest

    LOVE this.

  • Evillene

    Oh...and a black man and a black woman together?!! Multimillionaires each, holding hands, showing solidarity and perhaps even in love???!!! Healthy, proud, strong, free of mental defect and representing????!!!!!! No, the world does not want to see that and is not ready.

    But it made my Sunday morning.

  • TMW

    I just read somewhere that said she hasn’t made good music since “I Am...” That’s the last record she made to cater to her pop audience. And I think that was her worst album.

  • TMW

    I’m not feeling this because I’m not into trap rap. Entertaining is their job and they need to find ways to stay relevant. I guess. Haven’t heard the other 8 songs because I’m not a Tidal subscriber, but I wonder how many people downloaded the app to listen.

  • CrunchyBlack1

    Yessuh, now I love this representation! F*ck a party in wyoming and under a bridge, rent out the revered Louvre....That dance sequence was hella sultry and sexy. Nice Egyptian shot at the end too, paying homage!

  • Pebbles

    I didn’t care for it to much, however I still smell a hit

  • CrunchyBlack1

    Why yall bash tidal? Its got the same music as the others, more content and majority black owned...oh cuz it aint got a free version? They give discounts for military, students, etc too

  • TMW

    I’m not bashing Tidal. On the contrary, I’m saying that a lot of the reason the music was exclusively released on Tidal is because it will bring subscribers. And the same people bashing are the same people who downloaded Tidal for the free 30 day trial to listen to the album. I think Beyonce and Jay-Z are very smart business people. I like them in general, just not this song. Didn’t like the one they did with DJ Khalid either.

    I subscribe to Apple Music by the way.

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    OOooooooo they hating baby they hating!! I ain’t much of a fan of either one I don’t I kncok their hustle but if it wasn’t white artist in that damn museum doing rock and roll or whatever else they wouldn’t be upset! SOme ppl csmt afford to breathe in there but yet they were allowed a whole crew and dancers and all to film a video ???ooooooo they big mad!

  • Ang

    The song is garbage.

    I don't know why people are surprised by the video and asking why they didn't highlight the AA Museum. Jay and Bey are both obsessed with money, status and attention. That's how they rank themselves and everyone else. They've been showing us who they really are and what they value for years but people didn't want to believe them because everyone want to believe Beyoncé was the sweet, down to earth, girl her father wanted her to appear to be no matter how many times her actions and words contradicted that. They wouldn't film themselves at a black museum for a song where they're singing "we made it" because Black things don't have the same status in white, mainstream culture and they are both obsessed with proving they've obtained that. Anyone who thinks there is any substance to either of them hasn't been paying attention.

  • Munchosgirl

    Like the video. Love the album...favs are Friends....Boss...Apeshit...Nice...

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Heads right back out... Y'all have a good Father's Day ?

  • Stan4NoOne

    Nice try, Sandra. The public is loving this! You managed to find the most negative comments you could find to share... #TYPICAL

  • Rayne

    Fawk DaVinci and all that raggley ass art. They look nice up there.

  • dru and neil

    I didn't care for the song, it was as underwhelming as the Mona Lisa is in person...

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Who is the public cause I ain't clicked play yet ...

  • Rayne

    And I’ll be bumping this in my truck!

  • What???

    Don’t believe the hype. Jay-Z and Beyonce are not billionaires. They spend A LOT of money to keep up their lifestyle every month. Tours are important to them because that’s their primary source of cash flow. If they kept up their lifestyle for the next five years without tours they’ll be DEAD BROKE. That’s the Secret.

  • We Can Do This

    Nothing they do or say matters to me. They are off-balanced by nature and the chaos in this world reflects their thinking and motives.

  • Ang

    I think that's why they spend so much time talking about their money and lavish lifestyle. They try too hard to keep up that image. If you really got it, why do you keep talking about it? If you're really the greatest, why do have to constantly tell us?

  • Hugga Bunch

    Nice visuals, but didn't Jay once rap about death of autotune? Asking for T-Pain.

  • Mark mcharm

    They have a combined networth but like Michael Jackson remember they said he spent a lot as well.

  • Hugga Bunch

    If Bey gonna rap, why not craft a Htown sound- js rep where you from.

  • Hugga Bunch

    The wealthiest ppl walk around in regular clothes and skippies lol you'd never know.

  • 1BlueStar

    I dont get any different feeling abt this over any of their others (except Shining cuz thas my shit). Beyonce's attempt at 'hard' is always SO comical. Jay Z is clearly aging and not into this anymore. Her fans probably couldn't name any of the artists or their wrks featured in this vid. Beat is typical and it does seem like a rushed project. Im sorry but issa thumbs down for me. But the public will love this.

  • Hugga Bunch

    They were def onto something w/Shining that's my jam too.

  • CrunchyBlack1

    meanwhile they live in 50-100 millon dollar mansions, fly private and charter 100+ ft yachts...so stop it. their attire doesn't mean they don't splurge lavishly in other areas. ...oh and if you think they shopping in target for those basic looking threads, you fooling yourself.

  • Munchosgirl

    He had a song right after that using autotune....

  • Munchosgirl

    713

  • Jeanine McNeal

    I read she might be expecting...

  • CrunchyBlack1

    its marketing 101. people keep talking about representation, you have it and all i see on twitter is cracks about downloading tidal just for this album....meanwhile the other joint starve artist when its time to payout

  • MsPam

    Beyoncé is out here trying to compete with Nikki and Cardi B. She’s almost forty and acting like a stripper from the hood. Jay looks like a complete fool, no hope for him.

  • MsPam

    Hell she’s hardly home with the last two!?????

  • Ang

    Exactly. I remember the guy on Million Dollar Listings Los Angeles telling the other agent to stop judging people at open houses by their clothes and car because you never really know. He said he once had a guy come to his $2 million beach house listing in ripped jeans and flip flops. He thought the guy was just being nosy and getting the free snacks but he was still nice to him. Then the guy pulls out his check book, wrote check and told him to cancel the open house.

    Money talks but wealth whispers. Confidence is silent, insecurity shouts. Beyoncé and Jay-Z are constantly screaming at us about their life.

  • What???

    The Forbes list is more political than it is factual so there’s is gross exaggeration just like the winners of major award shows. Anyone can buy a star on the Hollywood WALK OF FAME FOR $50,000.

  • TMW

    I agree it seems like a rushed project...but there will be “deluxe of deluxe” version releases. They will keep this project relevant for the entire tour.

  • Hugga Bunch

    They passin' out hugs at your local planned parenthood today- go get you one. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/f0ab322235df603a72ace5e08c8458dcaec1c606d632cca92f90099c6df8d632.jpg

  • Hugga Bunch

    Yep I remember that too.

  • TMW

    I don’t think she’s expecting, she just never took off all that baby weight from the last time.

  • CrunchyBlack1

    mad about MY facts and your fiction. stop letting these white people have you believe they don't covet those same items and brands. its cuz they don't want it known, that they associate with things you can afford as well.

  • What???

    Because they’re selling a lifestyle. The entertainment business psychology is that the public does not want to make anyone rich but will support the “wealthy” artist as association for their own projections and dreams of wealth and fame which will never happen.

  • Meme

    You clocked that too? Ms Sandras on a mission her whole raison d'etre is to hate on this couple ??

  • TMW

    Exactly. And they have influence and can influence behavior. I think of 21 Savage who stopped buying and wearing jewelry, started investing in his community and art. He gives credit to Jay Z for that.

  • Rere

    I never understood why people count other peoples money??. I'm sure they are investing their money wisely.

  • Hugga Bunch

    Wealth whispers* absolutely.
    Well said and true!

  • Peppermint Patty

    Well said

  • Ariel

    Love it! Stop Black-on-Black Hate. Somebody gotta make it.

  • TMW

    Again they are not dumb business people by any means. They will continue to produce Tidal exclusive content, but it will eventually make it to other services. And the thing is when it becomes available on Apple Music it won’t be free under the subscription. You will still have to pay for the album.

  • Ang

    That's a nice excuse but I don't believe it. The public is well aware that we make entertainers, actors, athletes and business people rich. Jay and Bey aren't the first superstars in America even though they act like they are. We know how it works. That's why it's so ridiculous that they keep trying to prove that they're rich and successful.

    Artists who are much more successful than them didn't feel compelled to talk about it all the time because they were secure in what they achieved. Yes, they're really successful but when you look at the numbers, Bey doesn't rank with the greats she constantly compares herself to.

    She's singing "have you ever seen a crowd go ape-ish?" YES. It's called a MJ, Prince, or Beatles concert.

  • Rere

    I don't think Bey is trying to compete with Nicki/Cardi I etc...I just think she has to move with the times like any other artist?.
    All artist have to reinvent themselves each time they come out, they are in a different space musically etc... Maybe I just think different?

  • Jeanine McNeal

    It does happen... when a woman tries hard to get pregnant, then once the pressure is removed it easily happens. I can testify to that.

  • TMW

    No, you don’t. Or I think different too. I see no difference in how they reinvent themselves than normal 9-5 people who have to keep current in their jobs to stay relevant. Only difference is, Beyoncé and Jay Z are high profile people who people love to hate.

  • Gamer?? Chick

    The Carters annoy me at times but I think I like this, it does come off like they are trying to appeal to the younger people though.

  • Bonita

    Typical Beyonce video with a bunch of gyrating throughout, but considered dancing by her stans. Looks like they've reversed roles since Lemonade. Beyonce comes off as the husband these days and Jay the wife. That turquoise suit jacket that he borrowed from his husband's closet and his bare chest exposed isn't helping matters either. This whole women's liberation is out of control.

  • Jeanine McNeal

    But you’ve heard of women that try and try (maybe even adopt) but once the mental pressure is gone pop up pregnant ?

  • TMW

    Some people can’t deal with the fact that they are getting old and this music isn’t for them. I am aging gracefully...and will keep bumping “4” and the Blueprint and wishing them success??

  • Munchosgirl

    They travel with their children....

  • TMW

    Yeah I know. But I also know that every time this woman eats a meal and gets bloated people want to make her pregnant. If you see any candid pictures not approved by her, you can easily see that she still has a double chin and a little pooch. I know from experience it’s hard to lose those things after giving birth, no matter how much you work out and eat right. Certain muscles ain’t what they used to be and that bounce back don’t happen so fast.

  • abby500

    I kinda agree with you

  • Malai

    I think they need to hang it up at this point! This new genre and style of music does not suit them...this almost feels like Aretha Franklin rappin trap music....it just doesn't look right! I understand the idea of "getting with the times" and finding your way through this ever-changing wave of music but I think they need to retire and focus on raising their beautiful children...the Carter's have already made their mark in the industry...we will NEVER forget them if that's what they're worried about

  • FukkFolks2018

    Success to them. Neither one are on my radar and either never were much (her) or it was eons ago (him). But hope tour and album does well

  • T865!

    That’s why Kanye said slavery was a choice because black people rather hate on each than support one another... uncle Toms??

  • hottlanta

    Not all artists reinvent themselves. Frankie Beverly and Maze hasn't made an album in 76 years and can still draw an audience.

  • KLo

    What does name of the song Apesh*t mean, as it relates to the music . Sounds ridiculous

  • hottlanta

    Pimp Chronicles. Azz one week and tits the next week. Still laughing at him on television giving relationship advice after he cheated on her. Everybody trying to be like 3 times serial marrier Steve Harvey.

  • Thingamajig

    I love Jay and Bey I really do. C’mon you can’t be young forever. I’m not saying to cover up your body, but at what age do you stop poking out your breast? I pray to age gracefully and not to be in my 40s and up still acting like I’m in my 20s.

  • hottlanta

    I am still trying to figure out why people call him a "genius" as if he was George Washington Carver who made peanut butter out of peanuts or my other favorite scientist/physics person Degrassi Tyson on PBS. People use the word too loosely for me as if he as a seat at the table in the genius club. Just because he got high one night and said George Bush don't like black people the way he treated black folks during Katrina doesn't make him a genius. We all saw it but he got high enough to say it.

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    Sandra 2/5??? No ma'am this is a zero out of five. Lame obvious money grab attempt that even the beehive isnt falling for. They look stupid

  • CrunchyBlack1

    but slaves supported each other and forged on... instead of just revolting, putting each other at risk of being mass slaughtered, and...bare with me...so you could be here to bash them, unfortunately!

    Not all of them submitted to their masters.. those that made the ultimate sacrifice are the reason you and I can so freely agree to disagree... niggas ( yeah I said it) need to learn to support black people . Your beloved blog host is definitely one that panders to white causes just to get her follows all riled up..

  • T865!

    Who said he was a genius? I never did but there’s truth to his statement whether you want to accept it or not ?????

  • Waya Hedia

    Bush didn't treat black people one way or the other during Katrina. That was all bullshit. The only people blacks had to fear during Katrina were other blacks.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Happy birthday to him! He is growing up! So handsome?

  • DeeFromLA

    Not feeling the song, but appreciate the tour of The Louvre which most will never experience in person. I think she still has some time left, but JayZ needs to let her have what's left of that time. He isn't appealing to the younger or older generation at this point in my opinion.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Smh...som'n tells me the tour,thealbum and the whole dam marriage is in Trubble.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Jay in his mint green pimp soot. Lort!!!!!!!

  • CrunchyBlack1

    Nah its was the entire collective. But more likely than not, it was the ones who had the foresight to see past the bondage. They knew that killing all the massa's would be the death of every slave in america. Birth of a Nation shed light on this fact as well. Trust me, the ones who didn't escape were no less aware than the one who revolted and fled north.

  • the guest

    I do like Jay Z's mature image and styling.

    I do not like when Beyonce styles her hair in this half up half down 12 year old girl hairstyle.

    The song is awful and not suited to either of their personal styles.

    The video needed a more advanced choreographer to suit the Louvre. I would have flown in Judith Jamison to Choreograph and casted classical Ailey or Dance Theater of Harlem dancers as classical black equals to the classical art location.

  • Peace

    Love the Video, Love the Carters, Love Tidal, Love them as Family, "IT's ALL LOVE"

    Imagine that, people getting upset at artists in a surrounding that features art. I guess it's because they're Black.

    Ellie Mae and Jed Clamped are up to it again they must earn they keep, they got to show the Elite they are still capable of dumbing down the masses with they low vibrational music . When will u guys realize these are jus actors on a stage who sole purpose is to convince you they lifestyle is real , instead of being a illusion, They are all smoke and mirrors .They are trapping y'all energy at these concerts , these two are energy vampires .They have sold they soul experience here for fame and fortune , they checked out of here a long time ago . Just wait they will turn on them when they can't make anymore money off of them . Love and Light

  • Renee26

    I don't see anything wrong with the video... I heard a preview of the album on the DMV radio station yesterday and wasn't really impressed. I like singing Bey better than rapping Bey...

    I see what you’re saying Ang but My premise is that fans tend to think fame automatically denotes wealth when that’s not necessarily the case. Since fame and wealth doesnt necessarily go hand in hand I don’t think the public thinks that they can effectively and collectively take wealth away from these artists who are already pedestalized.

    OMG Jay-stupid has succeeded in making beneath-say a ghetto queen with a small "q" This video is vulger, distasteful, absurd, and disrespectful to an institution like the Louvre. I am shocked that the Louvre allowed them to film this crap. beneath-say it is official you are now Ghetto.

    I never understood the rich. I work countless hours with a goal to retirement. I mean I have another 25 years before I retire but they have sooooo much money that they can retire young. Why not?? Especially if you are going to give music like this. #iluvbeyandjay

  • king shun

    Some people are taking great glee in this where she says her great great grand children are rich. But understand this the white supremacist have always had Show Dogs and Dog Shows so they can say look how good the black is doing we not racists the others are just lazy

    Yeah this whole album sounds like a migos left over or hand me down sound if you will. It lacks growth both sonically and lyrically . It’s the same old , same old I have money , look at my over-the-top lifestyle

    TI got cheating on Tiny...again. Remember the story about the three girls that got arrested at the restaurant Houstons? TI was calling for a boycott. Well, apparently the girl is one of the girls from that incident. If you are familiar with Greenleaf, she is the light skin wife to the preacher with the gambling problem.

  • hottlanta

    Betta say it. Frankie Beverly and Maze got that generational music. Cardi B come and go but Frankie Beverly and Maze lasts forever. When was their last face-face interview and have they ever been in front of Rolling Stones or a Billboard magazine. Things that black artists have been told throughout the years they need to do to become revelent in music and to crossover if they wanted to become successful. They said we ain't changing nuthin and that is why we love/respect them to this day.

  • Faithz

    You can tour the Louvre online if that interest you, though.

  • Faithz

    Yep and the same with many Bands, Singers and groups.

  • Brown & Proud

    You are 1000% correct. They are soul suckers and they worship the beast as well as Aleister Crowley. That alone should be enough to make everyone rebuke those fools. I cant support their nonsense "music" .. The last quality album Jay released was reasonable doubt.. Bey has never made a quality album imo.

  • tia

    You didn't??

  • hottlanta

    You mean the ghetto first lady who shops at Citi Trends. That was her.

  • Michelle Peele

    I laughed out loud for real when I saw 76 years. You right tho.

  • Brown & Proud

    Right.. Bey could never be as legendary as the one and only Aretha. Aretha is in a whole other class of singer.. Classy, real artists that stand the test of time ie: Anita Baker, Sade, Diana Ross, Mary Wells, etc. They never had to show their ass to stay relevant .. Instead they made great music and it will be remembered forever, in every generation. Noone will be playing Beyonce in 15 years lol, I know I won't! Hell I dont like her now!

  • hottlanta

    I remember when SNL did this skit about the day Beyoncé was black when she did the Super Bowl and white folks went crazy. Toooo funny. Enjoy.

    hmmm figure it was something, based on his crazy post about marriage.

  • hottlanta

    Jay didn't make her anything she wasn't. Her being ghetto was already there and the money just magnified it and brought it to the world.

  • Jeanine McNeal

    Maybe not retire but evolve and find other passions.

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    I heard crazy in love a few days ago and couldnt believe how bland it sounded to me. Yet when it first came out it was the jammmm! To me the beyonce songs that could have stood the test of time were never promoted the way they deserved to ie: flaws and all ave maria ( bish im blanking on the rest thats how forgetable!) nmimd ?

  • Brown & Proud

    Haha! Thats funny you say that cause I liked crazy in love when it came out too. . but not enough to play at home or in my car. Her songs never made it on any mix cds ive made in the past. Shes just blah to me. She lacks substance. Now Erykah Badu, Lauryn, MJB, Jill Scott, and Amel Larrieux were on all my mixes wit some Sade sprinkled in lol.

    i went to the concert last night, It was packed to the brim. My family went on Friday they said it was packed. How is this tour struggling? The only empty seats were behind the screen. It was lit! People are such haters. I am from London. This tour did not struggle in London.

  • Brown & Proud

    Thats sad cause Migos makes terrible music ??.. These fools suppose to be leaders not followers. Trend setters they are not. I clicked play on the video and only made it to "put some respect on my check" before my disgust made me turn it off. It is beyond wack.

  • shell

    That was Versailles. The Louvre does this all the time for movies and TV shows.

  • Coy little wink

    They have an open situation ?

  • Allihave2say

    Auntie we need you to drop this down one rose unless we can give half roses, then give them half. The metaphor here seems to be that they have acquired wealth, they made it, they look out and see the people at their concerts around them acting like apes - uncontrolled, wild, violent beasts who are like shit - waste, garbage, unwanted, low lifes. This is a no thank you.

  • shell

    Funny, I was just telling my friends Janet Jackson will go down as the last great African-American female singer and it's sad. I feel bad for this generation; these artists only ask you to support them without delivery good music. I know a lot you believe this is about black love, but this is more about hubris and black exploitation. They're consciously saying "I'm better than you; I am more cultured than you, and because you will never have what I have, so you as a person of color should blindly accept my lower quality product because we are what you will never be. Hey, but that's okay because I'm black like you."
    I never trust any artist who sell personality and race over quality. Blind loyalty is just as dangerous as unearned loyalty. A wise person knows the difference.

  • hottlanta

    I would just call my divorce attorney and close the situation down and keep it moving. They thrive on drama. That is how they get their rocks off. They go back and forth then they fight and fyck.

  • Fire & Ice

    I like Beyonce but I agree with you.

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    Now you know when amel and sade's names come up now we're talking real rnb. Beycamel carter was always a pop star masquerading as an rnb act

  • We Can Do This

    You can never make enough money especially when it's this easy...

  • dontgetblocked

    They have to work for their money. If they were wealthy, their money would work for them. She's pushing forty and he's pushing fifty yet they tour like they just got put on. Spend more than they make. I hope there's something left for her great great grandchildren but I doubt it.

  • abby500

    U notice how Rihanna ALWAYS has a ? album? She stays current and her ?is always very good and shows growth. So....why is it that this so-called “Queen” and her now effeminate looking billionaire husband can’t take their billions and gather talent to assemble a kick-a@@ album??? The migos? That’s so desperate. Why not just toss cardi in the mix? I love riri...

  • Faithz

    School them Ang with the truth.

  • tintin

    And i think Riri would have been a better fit for this song

  • missmiami305

    I like Beyoncé as a performer and still rock with Lemonade. However, this bs she is pushing about love conquering all and being a rider in a relationship with a habitual cheater and womanizer is laughable. I haven’t watched the video nor listened to the album. Although, I am sure it’s a bop and will sell more tour dates; Bey seems weak and pitiful. It doesn’t take a strong woman to stay. It takes a strong woman to walk away.

  • missmiami305

    Because Jay is in debt. They(meaning BEY lol) have to work like dogs to pay off his bad business deals. Now don’t get me wrong, they are wealthy on paper and even off. But it is greatly exaggerated.

  • AmericanDream

    I know , I guess they’ve decided that relevancy at all cost is worth it. I mean , as much as Migos makes terrible music the hot 100 chart is littered with their hits .

  • Faithz

    And their Fans think their air comes from the Carters, They have forgotten that Our Air comes from "God Incorporation" . And many of Her Fans really do think Beyonce can really walk on water.

  • missmiami305

    Did u check out her Lemonade tour? Do u think it was too soon and worth it? Idk, I saw her before the pregnancy so I’m like mehhhhhhhh lol

  • missmiami305

    Bey is crossing over to the trap scene. I really didn’t like her verse in TOP OFF. Seems contradictory imo. But, it’s music.

  • missmiami305

    THIS!!!!!!!!! I am assuming that is why they opted for the location. Everything about BEY is calculated. She has a great team! Didn’t watch the video tho. I assume she’s grinding in her husband like he’s the prize lol

  • missmiami305

    True! They are forcing their love down folks throat lol. Just like they did with the first OTR tour

  • hottlanta

    So what is she giving us another black history moment gyrating her hips, showing tits, slanging her weave and wearing a onesie. Those slaves going to the water wearing sheer blouses showing their wet nipples were quite enlightening. Can't wait for singer Adele to say again that her black friends in London had low self esteem until her album came out.

  • missmiami305

    Donald Trump says black people love me my ratings improved after Kanye.

    Lil Wayne said he's never experienced racism and he's proof that it's dead because he's a millionaire.

    Another rapper, maybe A$AP Rocky said no racism because he's black a millionaire living in Calabasis or somewhere.

    Then there's the proverbial I have a successful black friend.

    Hello Roses. I’m looking for a comment hopefully you can help. Someone commented about their cat and how cats take over your home as if you’re living with them instead of the other way around. They commented about how that cat used to be gone for months on end, come back pregnant, have the kittens then leave again. Also talked about how they’ve been raising generations of this cats’ lineage. How one time, after the cat had been gone for months, the commentor’s grandmother saw the cat sitting on the porch of some house.
    As you can see, the comment made quite an impression on me. If anyone recognizes this comment and know who made it, please let me know.
    It’s 01:21 in the morning, on this side of the world and I have work in the morning, so let me give my pillow this head. ??
    Looking forward to any response. ??

  • Allihave2say

    Most of them live in excess with delusions of grandeur that they can always make more money. The Carters should have bought 3 properties up front when they married, his, her, and ours. Live in ours and rent out his & hers. Then they should have bought real real estate not pretend to buy stupid ish like islands and jets.

    Many years ago a story came out that Beyonce was spending way more money than she was making. She had to have the most expensive of everything. Matthew levered her image to get her out of debt. Then came JZ who convinced her that Matty was robbing her after bringing in his own shady accountants.

    To sum it up the do not invest and hold. They live for the flash and bang. Then are shocked when they have to tour at 60. It's not always because they just love their jobs but lawsuits, drugs, sex, and living in excess be they black or white.

    Sandra posted a story about some girls getting dragged by police/security at the restaurant Houstons. TI got on his activist tip and was trying to get everyone to boycott the restaurant. He was trying to get all of the locations closed or something.

    Anyways, one of the women involved in the incident is the woman he got caught rubbing and kissing on backstage at a concert. Her name is Aisha Epperson I think. She is an actress and she was on Greenleaf.

  • missmiami305
  • Blaque Mahogany

    Girl...

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Well, someone needs to let Tiny know because she is liking all of the comments about him being a hypocrite and embarrassing her and his family.

  • missmiami305
  • Blaque Mahogany

    Yep.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Because #1 as an artist the art & the music is always in you, bubbling up and you want to let it out. It's not just about the money.
    Plus #2, there's the ego thing too. It's a huge rush being on stage having 25,000+ people singing your songs, chanting your name, etc. A lot of artists get addicted to that. They're not going to get that same rush sipping champagne on a beach somewhere.

  • Sally Wright McLinn

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Jay Z is just not attractive to me. He may have a big D and millions of dollars, but he does nothing for me. I wonder what he would like with muscles or at least some definition in his flab.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    TI is such a messy dude. This ninja's always trying to act like he's such a moral voice for black youth, but he cant even stop running around on his wife and disrespecting her. SMH

  • Allihave2say

    How do you know the status of the guest? Just wondering

  • Allihave2say

    It's a metaphor I explained below. The reason it's filmed in the Louvre is to again show the "wealth" and arrival of the Carters while they rap out the people who support them being wild low lives who are unfit to be present in the Louvre.

  • What???

    Think about all the girls/women that never came out of that trash mindset and have reproduced baby after baby with their male trash counterparts. Now you have a community and a race of immoral people. No one wants to admit black people are immoral just because there might be some police brutality here and there. We’re hypocrites.

  • What???

    Squares may cheat but their intellectual pedigree is higher. At least the offspring are probably not gonna be drug dealers to say the least.

    So is Nicki btw . . . Five years from 40.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Very messy and disrespectful. But what I found most disgusting is the amount of famous men commenting under the video and saying that that isn't TI. Black men need to hold black men accountable for their bs.

  • Rayne

    Like they do at church ??” COME ON BROTHER, SAY IT,PREACH!”

  • TrollingStoned

    Jay z is an old man *in rap years* that alienated a lot of his new younger fans that will buy tickets with his “grown man” rap. The mature people that loved his album are taking his money management advice and not blowing $$ on dumb sh-t including paying hundreds of dollars to see him ?? (Im a fan of both but decided 2 save my coins) so what does he do? Hop on Beyoncé’s back once again & drag her on tour and have her change up her style of music (which was working) because she has a solid fan base that will pay to see her and him by default. This album and this tour is to feed his ego. He wants to feel like he still got it.

  • hottlanta

    Black folks are immortal when we have a white President with 5 kids by 3 baby mamas and have sex with porn stars. Yet he will get lifetime benefits when he leaves office. He needs to have a CDC truck on standby. Yet there is a reality show where white girls are stars called 16 and Pregnant. I guess they listened to Beyoncé song. Only thing is when black folks are immortal we get a BAD name/get poorer whereas when white folks are immortal they get a GOOD check and get richer.

  • hottlanta

    They gonna be intellectual drug dealers. Instead of selling it on the corner like dumb ass RaRa they gonna have messenger on bikes and cab services to take the drugs to the guys on Wall Street. They gonna keep FedEx an UPS in business. They gonna be singing that song. Them prices way too high, you need to cut it.

  • What???

    If your children came home and said that their friend's parents allow them to do drugs. A GOOD parents will say, "I don't care what your friend's parent say, you're MY child and you're going to do the right thing NO MATTER WHAT". A BAD and IMMORAL parent will say, "Well until they stop doing drugs, you can keep doing it because you're not the only one who's doing it". NOW DO YOU GET IT?? If you focus on PRINCIPLES, especially as culturally POWERFUL as black people are around the world, we will have the higher moral ground that will resonate..and our REPUTATION will garner RESPECT and DEFERENCE on SIGHT. As of now we are ONLY respected for our athleticism (and criminality). Are white people responsible for how well we sing or run or is only the bad shyt their fault??

    That's what we non_fans/stans were wise enough to peep out a long time ago. She went straight from her daddy to a man similar to her daddy. Let's keep it real, most women are attracted to someone who has similar traits to their dad's: my dad is an outdoors man; he likes to fish, build things & fix things. I want someone with those same traits- it's what i grew up around. I guess it's no different for Beyonce; Jayz = Matthew.

    What did family education lineage Valerie Jarrett do to be disrespected by trailer park lot 6 family lineage Roseanne Barr in such a manner on sight. Since according to the course you took in the course Slaveology 101 we gotta be doing something wrong and we gotta knock ourselves out 24/7 to be respected by the masses when their white privilege allows them to look down on others and do crimes and get away with it when a person of color would go to jail for years. White people love the way we sing, they copy it and make money for themselves. Ask Justin Timberfake, Elvis, Jerry Lewis, Michael Bolton, Christina and so on.

  • starbright9449

    Sandra you sure dug deep to find complaints and you're even quoting comments from youtube but left out the raving reviews and from other artists too lol. The hate is real, that track and video are fire. I bet if this album sells big you wont report it.There are barely any people upset about the video being filmed in there and you have to blame the people who allowed them to do it.

  • hottlanta

    Like it or not I stand by what I said. Get over it.

  • hottlanta

    I love my dad but I don't want anyone like my dad because my dad is my mom's man not mine's. My mom's needs with my dad are different from the needs I have with my man. If I met a man and he said he wanted me to be like his mom and compared me to his mom I wouldn't like it. If you met a really nice guy and he didn't do things like your dad and you cross him out it would be your lost. You could met someone who does all of the things you described and still get your heart broken. I tell my men I will not compete with your mom and I am sure some men will not compete with your dad. If I wanted someone like my dad I need to date my dad. I love my dad but I truly don't want to see him naked.

  • What???

    First of all YOU were never a slave, you never had that experience but you apparently want to be viewed as an ex-slave. If I'm wrong, who was YOUR master??
    Blacks go to jail for longer for at least four reasons:
    1. You're committing most of the crimes
    2. You need money for decent attorneys not court appointed ones
    3. You have a community of single mothers who continually mate with pookies, criminals and the courts see a fugged up family support, if any.
    4. Because of your criminal behavior, you've socialized the criminal justice system to be less empathetic to your racial phenotype on sight.

  • missmiami305

    They do. I think they are soul mates. They were out together for a purpose. Maybe to pay some karmic debt. Soul mates and twin flames aren’t always the romantic Happy ever after garbage. Anyway, u can truly see the love in Beyonce eyes when she looks at him. That’s what happens when they grab ya young. It works for her and if she’s happy cool.

Touring in a wheel chair would suck, id want to have a back up plan for my family. They must think they'll be forever young on some Rod Stewart ish. The delusion and ignorance is real lol.

  • Brown & Proud

    I didn't, but I cant say I'm surprised. They will be held accountable for their actions. Esp corrupting an innocent child. I pray for them, cant rock wit em tho. Even if they actually made good, quality music I wouldnt fux wit em.

  • Brown & Proud

    Yep shes def pop! Guess thats why I never liked her.

  • MsPam

    She is doing what she learned from her parents.

  • missmiami305

    What was he just in court for regarding Tidal?

  • missmiami305

    You ain’t never lied. They say daughter’s marry their fathers. I believe it. Our father’s are the first men we learn to love. On a subconscious level it is what we attract. Sn, I remember the lyrics to the song Daddy. She sang something along the lines “i want my husband to be just like my daddy”. If anything, this proves Bey is human and has made mistakes like us regular folk. I guess lol

  • Yetunde

    While I like the song, I’m a bit fed up with them telling me how much they have that the average, everyday hard working individual doesn’t. Jay Z has regressed from his 4:44 album with this. Yes, we know you can afford to drive a Lamborghini. It’s getting boring.

  • DeeFromLA

    Wasn't aware of that, the tour was the only high point. How unfortunate.

  • The Shy Cookie

    Well I'm not white and I think Bey is ghetto and her song is trash. The visuals were beautiful but there is nothing uplifting in her lyrics as she attempts to rap sing over that trap beat.

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    I wish Jay z would just go ahead and retire. He all up in video looking like somebody auntie/craig mack. Beyonce needs to just make music videos on her own. She doesn't need him. I'm tired of all this evil, wicked symbolic shyyt too. When Bey first came out, she was a nice christian gal. Idk wtf happened.

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    I miss the days when jay z and Bey kept their relationship private and left us all wondering about what really went on between them.

  • The Shy Cookie

    Most of the comments I read on bawsip are negative. Just because you stand for this, doesn't mean we all do.

  • Malcom Flex

    Another PR job well done. That's what they DO.

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    I must be old as heck....I never can understand what they (both of them) are singing or rapping....especially Jay. I have his book Decode and I still don't understand what he wrote....what does lemonade mean?

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    They DO give back via charities. I believe she owns property in Houston that houses the homeless.

  • Munchosgirl

    Not because he owe anyone....he had to give a deposition against Iconixx Brand, the company they sold Rocawear to....from the looks of things Iconnxx has been cooking the books....According to the release from the SEC, it is investigating potential violations of "...federal securities laws related to the financial reporting of Iconix Brand Group, Inc., which paid Carter more than $200 million to acquire intangible assets associated with Carter's Rocawear apparel brand. After the acquisition, Carter and Iconix maintained publicly-disclosed partnerships related to the Rocawear brand." To be sure, the subpoena does not allege that Carter has violated federal securities laws in connection with its investigation into Iconix or its purchase of Rocawear. Rather, the SEC states that it initially issued a subpoena for Carter's testimony on November 16, 2017, but Carter did not comply. After Carter retained new counsel in February, 2018, the SEC issued a second subpoena for his testimony which he failed to respond to.

    I don’t doubt that they give to charity. I’m just fed up with the bragging.

  • Phillybruh

    They aren't married in that sense anymore, they are a business now the kids are props.

  • Phillybruh

    But this is who she is. Its who she's always been.

  • Phillybruh

    I think its be current and original. I think some artist are able to do it.

  • Phillybruh

    I have always thought Jay-z was a fraud. I didn't get that vibe from her until recently.

    when life gives you lemons.. you make lemonade... thats my understanding of the album..

  • Tiff J

    Hip hop is about bragging (whether it's actually true or not) it's about talking about how much you have, what you drive, about buying things others can't pronounce. Kids like to see that flashy lifestyle on display.

  • Amilia A Lee

    I listed to my Anita Baker album to get this mess out of my ears. Nothing they say has any substance. They must not realize that thier real fans are the same age as they are, and dammit I don’t wanna hear this.

  • supastar

    They have turned their marriage into a business. Smart move tho.

  • Wayup!

    I don't know if I've already posted this but... I hope the Migos bought the Patton,(sp) for those pastel Miami Vice fit's...
    J look feminine..B look masculine..I was not a fan of the video.
    But the NEW DANCE MOVES.. WHEW CHILE... Know the?hsppy!!!!

  • Wayup!

    She really keep trying to make us like his sexy.....?

  • Wayup!

    Maybe there was the meaning behind the video....
    It just came out all wrong...?

  • PennyWiseComing4U

    i have never seen a blogger like sandrarose..who always post negative comments about her...so lame to do that constantly...no wonder this site has bad reviews...and i am sure she is black...you dont see other bloggers behave this way...they just post without all the extra personal hate...if you dont like beyonce be grown and keep it to yourself and just blog...learn from other successful sites....

    "The video is dull..."

    'Coz they can't shoot with spotlights and such in the Louvre?

  • TMW

    The whole point of the Lamborghini line is when Beyonce said they “reversed out of debt.” They are telling their business - isn’t that what the folks want?

  • Kayke

    I love all the melanin flowing through the Louvre in this video and its a good visual piece. They have great chemistry. She looks like Solange in alot of the takes .....it also looks like a solange production. Not a fan of the song but of the video.

  • Kayke

    Whats a "HW"?

  • Keunnea booshay

    Let me state this and I will let it go, She brought black history to each and everyone of those artifacts in that museum. You are beyond a hater it you see it other wise. This is a music video true, but let's celebrate the fact someone of color had the time to bring color to a historic place of excellence and redo each scene in our color, get it........go back and look again. I'm not even a B fan but hey I CAN'T BELIEVE WE MADE IT!!!!!!!!!

  • Kanyade

    i like the pantsuits
    also, black culture in the louvre: love it.
    nike of samothrace. beyonce "praise dancing" in front of a sculpture that means victory. i reckon, they made it. ;)

    it was pretty dope. Can't even hate

  • Yoni7

    To all the people talking about they wouldn't attend the concert because she (probably) didn't have any new music coming out and blip blap and the third. Well here yall have it. NEW MUSIC!
    Go Bey and Jay make music and make money! Do you!

    I love the video! and I love Bey and J chemistry.

    Anyone hating wish they could do it like that.

  • Ms. Jackson

    Are you serious?

  • Brown & Proud

    Hip hop started out talking about struggling and real life relatable topics. Over the years it has evolved into bragging about women, cars, clothing labels, drugs, and money. True/real hip hop has substance, a message. There is no real hip hop being promoted to the youth anymore. You have to know underground artists to hear good music. Also, HH has elements: DJing, break dancing, emcees, etc. All these wack highly promoted artists make hip Pop, theyve created a new genre, and its atrocious. I miss the days of 2 turntables and a Mic.

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Yess yess yesss , this go hard in the club. Can’t believe we made it!!!!! They letting the people know we’re not rich anymore we wealthy!!!! Yes Beyoncé and Jay get them coins baby

  • Libra80sBaby

    Apesh*t is the only song on the album that I can ride with. All other songs are mediocre at best and the hooks/chorus on the rest of the songs are trash. Part of what makes a strong song is the hook. I just feel like the hooks on this album are tired and all over the place.

  • Yoni7

    “I love Bey with all my heart, but as an European and Italian it doesn’t feel very comfortable to see historic, classical art getting destroyed by ghetto hip hop shit,”

    NOBODY GIVES A SH!T about what makes YOU comfortable.......YT PERSON! Not everything is for YOU and YOURS! Let US live! Ugh.

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Chile don’t waste ya time, when it comes to Beyoncé people will always find something negative to say.

    At this point in her career she can do what she wants , and that’s exactly what she’s doing!!!

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Only a few shows haven’t sold out , after this it will

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Im glad that Bey's style is evolving but I aint gonna lie im a lil scared too...I notice with her lately whatever the wave is at the time in music she goes with it... I always thought her goal was to be "One" out of all the others whose music is different. Bey is in her own lane she has no competition but I love the ballad Beyonce not this gaudy Gucci wearing showrunner who is "trying to be young"... dont get me wrong I like the cockiness and the new found boldness she's had since that "Beyonce" album but idk...something is off and seems kinda "old lady in the club"...IJS...

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    so them making a video inside the museum amounts to desecration? yet, the French routinely desecrate the actual burial grounds of their ancestors by selling tours of the catacombs beneath the city???????? tourists traipsing through skulls & bones in the dark, like they're on a pub crawl, but they're 'bothered' by THIS??!!

    same Euro-trash complaining about this, will deny and dismiss the destruction and looting of Egyptian museums and artifacts during the gulf war (or any other time "they" have decided to steal from The Continent).... FOH!!!!!!!!!!!

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    right. FDB!!!

  • RudyHuxtable

    This video is pure BLASPHEMY!! It is NOT art. They display the fallen angel Icarus. The devil was a fallen angel. They are in Paris in a museum full of masonic images & symbolism. COME ON PEOPLE! Listen to the lyrics. They are the Luciferian dynamic duo who is here to spew the Satanic and sectarian agenda! These folks want your souls to steer you away from God. WAKE UP!!!

  • RICHIE_RICH

    I think Jay and Nas should’ve done a joint album, Beyoncé we need you’re album. I understand you want to help ya husband and all but , girl ya fans want you and only you. We only deal with him cause of you ?????

  • RudyHuxtable

    I once was a fan and have opened my eyes to the true agenda at work here. She and her handler Jay "Hovah" (come on!) are part of an occult. God bless you though.

  • Quitedeliteful

    I think Sandy was a waaay to harsh. I like the visuals, I like the beat I like the Migos influence. I don't see all the negative hype over it being shot in the museum. I say this deserves at least 4 roses.

  • Sushi

    All of this........And I am no hater if you like it I love it......

    That’s their issue, and if true , then they will have to answer to GOD on judgement day. I’m only here for the entertainment. God bless you as well.

  • Kanyade

    "They are in Paris in a museum full of masonic images & symbolism."

    ----

    Also, Christian symbolism, no?
    Also, Icarus wasn't real; 'twas a character in a mythological tale, who failed and failed remarkably. If you liken Icarus to Lucifer, then wouldn't that mean that maybe, the Devil will ultimately fail, too?

    The lyrics do contain symbolism and have some wordplay but it is nothing remarkable, IMO.

  • Yoni7

    He's adorable!

  • RudyHuxtable

    That's also your issue as well. We have to steer our brothers and sisters to the right path, when we feel they are fallen or oblivious to it. This generation has become self-righteous and God will answer to you too come judgement day.

    And what Path is that? Who to say your path is the right path? Im old enough to know people are going to do what they please, im not here to change that. Call is selfish or what not. I can only control and answer for my actions. We as people can’t force what we believe to be right on others ?????????? Have you every seen the crowd go APESHIT?

  • RudyHuxtable

    No, the lyrics do not contain symbolism, the video does. There is so much I can break down but nobody wants the truth. Just good beats and imagery. One thing about these artist, they PUT THE TRUTH OUT IN PLAIN SIGH. We are so in awe with these people that we cannot see or hear it. Music is the key to the soul. Soul food. When you ingest soul less content, you too become soul less. Unwillingly.

  • RudyHuxtable

    I don't. I want folks in the kingdom of heaven. :(

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Thats why they mad cause she keeps slaying the kids and I live!!! The simple fact that they did this in the Louvre is OVER

  • RudyHuxtable

    I don't want to debate. It's futile. You feel how you feel. :)

    i respect your thoughts. agree to disagree on symbolism within the lyrics.

    I do aswell but I can't make people see what is right in front of their eyes.

  • Waya Hedia

    So you're saying a 19 year old Kanye West fully understood everything that was going on in N.O. and made a wholly accurate assessment. LOL. ok. Yet, the idiot mayor who refused to prepare properly and subsequently went to jail is not at all responsible.

    Nah. not buyin' it. The people that 'didn't care about black people'. were the people of New Orleans.

  • Munchosgirl

    Nothing to do with Tidal....it was for Iconix Brand, the company who purchased Rocawear has some explaining to to do to SEC, SEC subpoenaed Jay... I am assuming on this part...to give testimony in the amount he was paid for Rocawear.. again I am assuming that was their reason

  • Lady_Elle

    Auntie... much ado about nothing. Just sayin....

  • pika12

    If you liken Icarus to Lucifer that would also mean that Lucifer is a character in a mythological tale as well. When will humans wake up? Religion is pure mythology and art. That's why so many artists include it in their entertainment. Lucifer is just as mythological as Icarus.

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    Bey needs to drop Jay from the act, no ones checking for Unk..

    I think the video like very video she makes was DOPE!! I love the song that was DOPE! Her going on a recycled tour wasn't so DOPE lol.. My question is why did she think that was a good idea.. But please believe when she does another tour with her new music it's going to be sold out so don't even get it twisted & that's bc she puts on a great show. I just hope it doesn't include Jay..

    Stand by what? We can only speculate as to whether Beyonce can spell LOUVRE. But you've proven unequivocally that your dumb ass CAN'T. What exactly are you "standing by", your third grade spelling skills?

    By the way, can you spell IRONIC? ????

  • NeverSurprised

    And if she CAN'T spell it, the two of you will be on equal intellectual footing, as you have just proven with your own misspelling of the word.
    So what is your point, Einstein? Lol!!!!

  • hottlanta

    Now yall know Bey gave those kids the mama talk before she went in there. Don't touch nothing or you are out. You know us we trying to take anything with an "L" to prove we were there. Just like that bad azz child broke that sculpture and now theww parents gotta pay for it. Bey was like if you touch/break it you are on your own.
