DO WE LOVE IT?: Beyonce's Bonus Track "Schoolin' Life"

On Beyonce's deluxe edition of her upcoming album 4, she adds on 3 additional tracks.  The first one to just hit the net is called "Schoolin' Life" and she's going the Prince route with it.  Check it under the cut....

Beyonce sang over an 80's inspired beat for another track written by The Dream.  The "1+1" song she performed on "American Idol" also channeled a bit of Prince, and she's doing it again on "Schoolin' Life."  And she's talking about still excelling in a world where parents try to shield everything.

"Mom and dad tried to hide the world/Said the world's just too big for a little girl/Eyes wide open can't you see/I had my first heels by the age of 13..."

The other two bonus tracks are called "Dance For U" and "Lay Up Under Me."  Her 4 Deluxe Edition will be released exclusively at Target the same day as her regular album, June 28th.

DO WE LOVE IT?!

I am luvin this song, I am a

I am luvin this song, I am a big Prince fan and loved the songs of the 80's. Its different and we really need something different now. The hump and grind, eat me and lick me songs have played out for me. The vocals are nice and like the lyrics. I can see Prince on a remix playing the guitar and jammin with Beyonce. Please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I don't like this song. Maybe

I don't like this song. Maybe it will wear on me after time? I buy every Beyonce/DC album but this one just isn't speaking to me. Hate to say it but maybe this is where she and I part ways :-/ ...she'll still go platinum without me anyway LOL

Repost from another comment.

Repost from another comment. A friend of mine forwarded this link via twitter http://music.aol.com/new-releases-full-cds#/1 - It's a preview of Beyonce's whole CD for those of you that may not have already heard it. I was really shocked. The Girls Run the World destroyed it for me. But I am listening to it now, and I have to say this album is good. Not her best, but mellow, cool, grown woman. I like it. So I really retract my earlier statement. I will probably buy this album at target for the Deluxe Edition. I think I am going to be a fan again. Fickle as I am, this album is doing it for me. She definitely had a miss with Girls Run the World. But that song is not indicative of the whole album. Good Job Bey! Her and Jilly from Philly!

Do we love it? Nope. Sounds terrible. Just like all of the others. Singing too hard, yelling too much. Try again.

Why didnt she release THIS

Why didnt she release THIS song as the first single from her upcoming cd?! Sorry but that GRTW song is soooo whack. So many fans tried to hype it up but it's stupid to try. It's hard trying to release something new and different. Much better than the other "leaked" songs!

I love that Beyonce is

I love that Beyonce is breaking the mold of a typical R&B/Pop singer she is crossing over to all genres . She's playing Glastonbury on Sunday which is amazing because that's a HUGE rock festival and she'll also be the first female headliner.

This song is one of the best

This song is one of the best songs I have heard Beyonce sing in a long time. I can feel the Prince influence in the song without it feeling totally ripped off from him. I believe her " creating a new genre of music" is her way of stepping out her box and getting back to music-her other songs were very popular, but not soulful and fun. She is chipping at the top of a soulful/fun/party feel with this song; her other tracks felt forced and a bit recycled. She may need to talk to Solange about capturing that soul-feeling.

Now as I am not a fan or hater, but a tolerator of Beyonce, I can say this without any bias. I LOVE this song! This is what she should have come out with! This shows her evolving into a woman. NOT girls running the damn world. This song I love it. I hope she comes out with this as a single with a hot video! Go Beyonce! I can definitely rock this song this summer. I'm about to put this on the ringtone!

I agree with you that says

I agree with you that says Bey is overrated. She need to spend more time with voice lessons. Great entertainer not so good singer. How old is she now? I remmember her saying by thhe time she's 25, she would like to have won a Grammy, Oscar, get married, and have a family. Well, don't think she will ever when an Oscar, so she need to think about having before Jigga is tooo old to enjoy the kids. If she waits any longer the kids will can him Granddad, instead of Daddy.

So far 1+1 is the only song I

So far 1+1 is the only song I really like. I'm not feelin this song or that "Party" song either. Love Bey, but I can't get with this new sound. She should get back to songs like "Ego, Dangerously In Love, Ring the Alarm, etc..." Bey, Please call Matthew back!!! It was business no need to change just bc JayZ is your husband. These days marriage don't even last forever but Daddy will always be there.

SONG SUCKS, you hear melody

SONG SUCKS, you hear melody and beats before you hear words. This song is an instrumental mess. I love Bey ..... I play her I am vidoe over and over again, I love her skills, but she got this one WRONG, this time.... We all fall short at times and a true champion knows how to step back , get a little coaching and get back in the swing of things. Bey is not listening, becuase clearly if she was, she would NOT have let this crap music hit the stores. She needs to step back and really research her next sound. I dont care how many people buy the album, my dollars is one she wont count in her gross amount for record sales. I'll give it to Ga Ga and Rhi-Rhi, they've earned it with GREAT sounding music. So if Bey's next albums is worth buying I will buy. She is blessed but she is also human and we all, miss the mark at some point in our lives.

Bey=Talent's picture

we can all agree she's a

we can all agree she's a gorgeous woman, some people are just not a fan of the new album, so what? that makes someone a hater. Please grow up. I am sure she is aware that some people dont like it...apparently record execs have asked her to go back and re-record, and she said nope. I can appreciate that. she's making music according to what she likes and that she's proud of. im sure she worked really hard on it...if the majority dont like it that's fine, you have 3 other CD's to play in your car from her and Maybe number 5 she'll take all comments into consideration, but honestly I hope she doesnt. I hate every last one of these songs that she put out, but she sings them like she loves them and that's all that matters. It's not HATE it's Prefference. Learn correct definitiions of words and then grow up

The funny thing is I am so

The funny thing is I am so surprised that the bloggers have hated SO much on BEY that CNN spoke on it...Even they were puzzled....Her CD isn't even out and the bloggers have predicted FAILURE. Never underestimate a SUPER STAR. Beyonce is very talented and will sell cds... Will bitter black females purchase? HELL NO, and they never do....so stick with the fan base that supports u.....Black women talk so much crap and NO ONE BUTS OR SUPPORTS CIARA, KELLY, KERRI, MONICA the list goes on.... I will be purchasing the CD....

First off sweetie do not

First off sweetie do not generalize black women. We all aren't haters that want to see another beautiful black woman fall. Also, I have all of her albums and I bought them with my own money so you need to fall back. Ignorance will get you no where. I know plenty of black women that are crazy for Beyonce and I'm one of them. Also if some black women do not like a song or think that she's getting boring, it's their opinion, it does not mean that they're trying to bring her down. I've seen so many Caucasians bash lady gaga and say bad things about Brittany Spears but no one ever reacts to that. Black ppl (especially black women ) seem to always be a target for negativity. Why can't we have our own opinions without being generalized or criticized. You obviously need to grow up educate yourself and open your mind because you are the most naive, ignorant person that I have seen on this sight. Beyonce is amazing and in less than 2 weeks she will run the world! No ifs, ands, buts or maybes! Sweet Cakes! Team Bey all the way!

honestly what she is putting

honestly what she is putting out is way different from what her fans are used too, it would definitely take some time for fans to adjust to the change hence the complaints and failure speculations, other than that, i think she is a phenomenal singer and performer, and i appreciate her hard work, God bless her heart
