Beyoncé delivers precisely what many listeners have always wanted from her: a short, tight, and energetic set that's heavy on upbeat numbers and funk affectations, and light on the balladry and melisma.

Acompanhada de uma péssima capa, 'B'Day' marca uma boa evolução musical na carreira da cantora após o seu debut, 'B'Day' diferentemente de seu antecessor nos entrega uma experiência mais enxuta e coesa, que apesar de não ser perfeito, ele acerta muito em ser mais direto em sua proposta sem perder tempo desenvolvendo abordagens desnecessárias como no album anterior.

Apostando em um R&B mais consistente, 'B'Day' consegue ser um vislumbre em ... read more

It’s 9/4 so you know what that means… B’Day!

On her sophomore album, Beyoncé continues trailblazing her way into legend status. Here, she puts her bets on live instrumentation that nicely compliment the funk inspired tracks. Her voice follows the concept and we can hear her on a more soulful tone.

I was never a huge fan of Beyoncé. I liked some of her songs, but I didn’t love her albums. Lemonade was good, but it just doesn’t hit me like I hoped it would. B’Day completely changed my mind. Turns out I like the music of early Beyoncé better than her new stuff.
