  • That bassline is *fire emoji*
    I approve of this direction! Yes, Bey!
    my only “complaint” is that I wish there was a modulation

      • It's on the repetitive side lyrically but Dance as a genre suffers from this so I won't knock it. It definitely took me by surprise to hear her go for the 1995 era production but it works! I think I might be feeling it the most on the first few listens than any of her lead singles from the last decade or so:

        1 XO / Drunk in Love
        2 BREAK MY SOUL
        3 Formation
        4 Run The World (Girls)

        • With every album of hers it happened that some album tracks were far superior than the singles. So I see this as an appetizer.

            Yeah I think you might be right, this goes at like 60% but if some tracks in this genre go at 100, I’m here for it.

            • I kinda like it, kinda don’t. It’s not the bop I was looking for.

              & sooo basically Drake tried to sabotage her

                  • I wonder what this would sound like without the sample.

                        • For some reason I like the spoken parts the best.

                            I feel like the lack of modulation will ensure that this is slow burner.

                            I mean it builds and builds but it stays melo but mantains it's sense of urgency based on the message the song is conveying etc

                              Since the album is a whole month away - i would presume we are getting 2 or 3 singles.

                              They have already shot the videos according the some of the dancers anyways

                                      It’s a fair review. There’s nothing groundbreaking or particularly special here. Break My Soul is just a fun song, and that’s okay - it’s a long time since Bey did fun.

                                      • Lyrically, this reminds me so much of "Find Your Way Back". I need to spend more time with it, but I'm in the "this is okay" camp right now.

                                          • I was expecting to like this considering it’s more on the dance side but I’m really not that excited by it on first listen.

                                            • This is such a valid point! B's lead singles always get such varied reactions.

                                              • Whilst that’s true, they didn’t sample and loop four notes from a very famous song for five minutes.
