Consequence of Sound

4 continues the Beyoncé tradition of making amazingly catchy, anthemic records with some of her best songs to date.

O trabalho mais injustiçado da discografia de Beyoncé e o início de uma grandiosa fase na carreira da Queen Bey.

Nota: 81 - great
Favorite tracks: Best Thing I Ever Had, Party, Love On Top e Countdown.
