Beyonce’s album drops today and our homeboy Mack at Sound-Savvy has reviewed it. Check it:
After taking some time off to let her previous successes marinate throughout the music industry, Beyonce has returned with her 4th studio album, aptly-titled 4.
Sonically this album is most similar to her debut project Dangerously In Love as there’s a very strong R&B presence in much of the music. In terms of content, I was pleased to hear that this project is significantly less generic pop fodder like its predecessors I Am …Sasha Fierce and B’Day and more “real” content that her audience can connect with and relate to. 4 is a step above her last two efforts, and it opens a door into a different side of Beyonce, allowing her to tackle the intricacies of love and relationships on this amazing new album.
