Sep 13 - Did Jay-Z Ruin beyonce's New Album?
 

 
By now, everyone knows that Beyonce recorded her new album “B’Day” without the knowledge of her daddy/manager or anyone at her label, Sony Records. Fox 411 columnist Roger Friedman, who calls the new album a “shrill dud,” blames its shortcomings on the singer’s insistence on working without an A&R rep.

“This record was [simply] turned in,” an insider explained to Friedman. “It was done completely by Jay-Z and his team. They came in, played it for us, and said 'Here.’ There was no discussion.”

Friedman writes: “The result of Jay-Z’s involvement, Sony execs fear, is no obvious single after "Déjà Vu," the lead track, expires. ‘There is no “Crazy in Love,”’ says a Sony exec.”

Freidman continues: “Unlike Justin Timberlake ’s solidly commercial if dully constructed ‘Futures3x/LoveSounds’ album, ‘B'Day’ is one headache-inducing trip down hip-hop lane. On top of thudding programmed drums, the otherwise gifted singer sings for some reason about an octave above her range. There is no advisory for dogs.”

B-Day is trash but what makes it worst is that they decided to release the trash next to albums like Futures3x/Lovesounds and Continuum and hell even Lupe's album....Those albums are just gonna run a train through Beyonce's album sales.

Maybe if B-Day released when there were no other hot artists about to drop it would of had some legs....but maybe Beyonce should have looked at the calender dates and realized that her album was going up against some of the biggest names in pop music right now.

sh*tty Album + Bad Timing = FLOP

damn didn't she do like 600,000 out the gate??

then they said there's no second single,but she just did a video for "ring the alarm"that sh*t is getting spins,and the video is on all day,plus she performed at the vma's.

Me personally i ain't beyonce fan,but you can't argue the truth.and the truth is it sounds like jay and B pulled a power move,decided to forget about what the suits would say and did what they had to do.Imagin if ever artist could jst skip the a&r process?

I thought "Upgrade Me" was the best song one there. Deja Vu was acutally a weak lead single to me.

i havent heard the album but her 1st solo album was amazing when it comes to good music...if all this is true about how jayz and whoever just put it together, i can see this being no good because "deja vu" was straight garbage

it is a subpar album though whether its jiggas fault or whatever. I mean we all knew she was recording so her father and label had to know.

I will second that right there. Swizz did his grizzly on that. Upgrade u should have been the lead single.

I think the album is good but i dont like that deja-vu song with Jay-Z. I hate the beat and i think Jay's rap is just mediocre.

How is it people keep saying stop hating if folks don't like the album? If they don't they just don't nothing can be done about it. I mean I hear people keep saying that the album has to grow on you or that you gotta spin it a few times no good album you have ever had did you have to spin a few time to like it. The first time you heard it was good and that was end of the chapter. The album is not good work for a singer of her caliber or as far as good music is concerned. It really is not and should not have to get by on your name alone, you talent and work should do it as well. This album will sell and it will only be on her name. Dangerously in Love sold because it was a good album.

there are definitely a large number of people who are buying/bought the album soley because of her name...then there are a large number of people who support her regardless (such as my girl). personally the album gives me a headache, she should have had her pops and the label involved from day 1.

even tho i agree with the article's main point, i can't agree with the author on principle because it's a fox columnist.
