She is ... Rihanna ... Fierce

Thursday, December 4, 2008

Beyonce's new album "I Am ... Sasha Fierce" is eclectic only in the alter ego that she supposedly allows to come to the fore for this album.
Beyonce prepped her fans to hear a different Bey, a more courageous (read: experimental) Bey but what she delivered was a Rihanna album.
Sasha Fierce is ... Rihanna.
That's the verdict from even her ardent record-buying customers.
Amazon has 41 customer reviews and a full 80 percent of them are negative or on the fence.

Bey's first single "If I Were A Boy" is a bonafide hit, but in the Rihanna style. For "The Baddest Chick in the Game," we expect more depth and texture. The dual single "Single Ladies" is more of the same that she has put out in the past ("Check up on it," "UpGrade Me,") so the premise that the album would be a great departure was highly exaggerated.
Also, many fans are not happy about a double CD that has a total nine songs on it.
This is what a double album is, not a hodgepodge preview of studio outtakes.
Final verdict, "Sasha Fierce" is neither Sasha, nor fierce. It's just Beyonce. And unfortunately (and it's not just me it's the record-buying public), I don't think that's enough anymore.

lmao thats funny. be is dope, but she gets annoying after a while. now that i thnk about her alter-ego whole style is really like rihanna, but rihannas voice is no match with beyonce.

omg u are sooo right... I've never really been a big fan of beyonce... but i enjoyed the artistic vision that she used for the album.. the visuals are strong(i.e. i like the black and white theme).

lucky beyonce she has die hard fans to whom she can do no wrong.

That's what I'm screaming. I have one word for that album: HYPE. (A whole lot of it) The album has a few songs I can get with but almost all of them sound strangely familiar. She's a great talent and all but I'm very disappointed.

damn straight!I love Beyoncé but I won't be buying the albumjust because I love her because it looks quite shit. Rihanna has taken her crown and I don't think she'll get it back. Also, it INFURIATES me when artists produce albums with 10 songs on it. thats just somewhere between an ep and an album.

This post read my mind. Especially "Radio" that song sounds like it was made for Rihanna...but um Who was here first. Get em Bey, you were pullin' out tracks while this broad was making pretend reggae music.
