Although I like this song, it is a bit basic for Beyoncé’s mature career. I actually don’t think it should have even made the album. Her fourth at it too. The lyrics are too basic for someone of her stature :lol:

What?

I think it’s her first step towards becoming a genuine grown up lyricist and delivering everything she did afterwards. It has some of my favourite Beyoncé lyrics in it too. Although the chorus does sort of let it down a little - she should have just swore :lol:

This song is prophetic.

This was so overhyped back then I think. For me it's far from her best singles but a nice song though

I still think this is nothing but a bunch of noise.

By far her most laziest single ever. This is basically Major Lazer with cheap lyrics :lol:
There was no imagination when it came to this singles production, and that too a LEAD single.
She is worthy of better. I honestly don’t know what she was thinking to make this a lead single. It would have sufficed as an album track.

Wow I couldn’t disagree more. Yes it’s basically Beyoncé writing lyrics to an existing track (which hasn’t made much of an impact) but they’re some of her best lyrics imo.

Mariah saved Xmas and Gaga is saving Pop and Hollywood.
