this album is so good, so many memories.

1+1, i miss you, best thing i never had, i was here, dreaming > > >

sometimes it's hard to choose between this one, self-titled & IASF.
I guess it's:

ST > 4 = IASF > > Lemonade > > B'Day

"Best Thing" is indeed very basic but it's not a bad track at all now matter how many times I trashed it. :lol: It's actually a really nice song to play on the radio. I don't even think there is one bad track on the album. "Rather Die Young" is beautiful too, it's so underrated. "Schoolin' Life" grew on me recently as well.

I have to admit that this probably will end up as my favorite Bey album in the end, it features some of my all time favorite Bey songs and one of my all time favorite songs :cry:

^This is my favorite Bey album. :cry:

It includes everything I love about this woman and on top of that, she was singing that throat BYKE on this.

This. Rather Slay Young is one of my favorite songs by her. It's so soulful. I don't see how you hoes can hate it so much.

I Was Here is a bit cheesy, but I'm not bothered by it. I see why she made it.

Schoolin life is overrated while no one gives love to the funky bop that is Slay Up Under Me. That song gets no love at all. :evil:

I've always found that song terrible. I don't remember how it sounds now but I don't really want to.

I always listen to this album...2011 was such an awful time for Mainstream R&B for me and this album was one of the best things to happen that year :cry:

One of her best videos. Ever.

I wish there was a radio edit for this song somewhere too. The 3rd verse on the album version is unnecessary and waay too long.
