Man, how yall going to say beyonce cd aint tough, that jont is about 8 outta 10 as far as R and B albums are concerned, She didnt have any ballads like usual, but it is still a Solid album. Swizz beats did his thing with this.........
her album is garbage the only reason she gonna sell is because of her image

I thought "Upgrade Me" was the best song one there. Deja Vu was actually a weak lead single to me.
that is the best song to me too, and i'm a big B fan. the album is trash to me though.

i agree...

her first album was classic... but this second one was trash compared to it... the beats for the most part were on point... but SHE'S NOT SINGING ABOUT ANYTHING!!! Freak'um Dress??? Get Me Bodied??? come on B...

Not a Beyonce fan, but facts speak for themselves. Also, LOL @ the people that call Platinum a flop in the day and age of musical bootlegging.
edouble... come on now... your avy says your a producer.... so then you know that labels have expectations of how many albums need to be sold in order for it to be a success...

Because of her name, and past record sales... she is considered by many to be the best in the game in r&b... if b-day doesn't go at least 3x plat... it's a flop.... point blank...

i was highly disapointed in this album and all of the singles. i think sometimes people try so hard to get the "new sound" that they end up taking themselves out of the running to be great. beyonce wanted a new look cause shes no longer with destiny child and she wants to prove she is more than just a leader of a group. and to be honest shes gonna sell regardless so i guess they just said fu*k it lets make the album we want to. i think swizz beats is a horrible "producer" he makes some aight beats but his songs are very thin and cheap feeling. thats my personal opinion. but look at mary j. 700,000 first week she sold 200 more than b. why? cause she makes music that the older crowd can identify with as well as the young. beyonce singled her audience out to just those who knew her before and not anyone new. i mean shes paid and shell easily go platinum. art is opinionated. and there is no true right or wrong just what "works". someones gonna love it someones gonna hate it. no matter what it is

her father had nothing to do wit the album yet he made sure to get his Executive Producer credit and I don't think Jay fu*ked the album up Upgrade u is the best track on the album and the album is pretty solid

Ok.. question to everybody that says she'll go plat just off her name alone and not the quality of the album... then how has this theory not proven the same for say... Method Man, who has had as much multi-media success / recognition as anybody else .. with your theory... the name Wu Tang alone should be worth double plat and then the name Method Man should be worth at least another mill
Method Man and Wu Tang are only popular within the hip hop community... Beyonce has a broader range of fans. Name recognition can definitely sale an album. Most people buy an album because they like the person and they haven't heard the songs on the album. Just cuz you buy it doesnt mean you are going to like the album, but just because you bought the album it's going to add to the sales.

I personally liked some of the songs on the cd. It wasn't a classic tho, I can tell you that. It's something I could get tired of.
