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?!

Yes I agree she influences

Yes I agree she influences minds, but not in a healthy way. In one song she sings to the kids telling them to get up and move your body, then in another song you are poisoning there minds by saying no degree in needed. SMH.

So glad Bey said f*ck ya with

So glad Bey said f*ck ya with this album. Black ppl really think their mentality and preference is what black ppl should be aspiring to. You ppl need to SUPPORT and ENCOURAGE your own (yourself!!!). And yes I said "you ppl". Your mentality is wack, real tack. DID YOU EVEN LISTEN TO THE LYRICS? F*ck them, Bey, I hear you. and I love the one w/Kanye and Andre 3000. Be encouraged. The children are the future, and their minds are in your hands, so keep schoolin'em through your music. P.s. Remember, the haters haven't done half of what you've done with your life. They have no idea what it's like to be talented and have giraffe money to show for it. They have no idea what its like to be you, period. If they were in your position they'd blow it miserably and be the crap they're calling you -- because it's universal law for ppl to experience their own judgments. They really think they can do better what you've done, and be as successful as you have with it, lol.... for how many years have you been doing this, and killin it? LOL, I'm so happy for you. They can't even imagine.....lol...please don't listen to them. Keep listening to your heart.

Daag get out their business.

Daag get out their business. And I know you didn't just compare Bey to A.Keyes with A.Keyes being the better artist. Have you ever seen A.Keyes come up from behind that piano and dance /"get her ass on the flo" as her hubby would say? And nothing is more 'substantial' than your name, the life you lead, and the example you set. A.Keys has failed miserably in that department.

the lyrics mimics Martina

the lyrics mimics Martina McBride's "This Ones for the Girls": This one's for all you girls about thirteen High school canbe so rough, can be so mean Hold onto, on to your innocence Stand your ground when everyone's giving in This is for all you girls about twenty-five In a little apartment, just trying to get by Living on, on dreams and spaghetti-o's Wondering where you life is gonna go This is for all you girls about forty-two Tossing pennies into the Fountain of Youth Every laugh, laugh line on your face Made you who you are today This one's for the girls Who've ever had a broken heart Who've wished upon a shooting star You're beautiful the way you are This one's for the girls Who love without holding back Who dream with everything they have All around the world This one's for the girls Yeah, we're all the same inside (same inside) From 1 to 99

Cut the shit. You dont like not one song?Girl bye. You and everyone else just want to see the girl fall. Sorry that wont happen. Even if this album flop which I highly doubt you cant take anything away from her. She is more than an accomplished artist and a tre star. Can't nothing stop her shine.

What do you all expect??? I

What do you all expect??? I mean I loved her first album but come on kids, this is Beyonce. She's never been a lyrical substance artist. She's no Mariah or MJB when it comes to delivery or substance. Let's call it like it is, Beyonce is good for giving us those annoying repetitive chorus summer jams. Until she opens herself up and is able to translate her struggles through music that's all she'll ever be. Why everyone is shocked and disappointed is beyond me since what she's doing now to me is the same thing she's been doing since she's been out. #imjustsaying

Best comment yet. You're clearly in the industry to recognize or you a have very keen awareness of music.

Beyonce talks about her

Beyonce talks about her struggles. She grew up in the music business. Therefore, she wouldn't be singing about tough relationships with the passion of MJB or Mariah. Your preference. Beyonce has delivered vocally(which you said she has not) what she is capable of doing. Mary is of the streets, so, she has a lot more worldly knowledge than Beyonce. Mariah, ehhh...Love her but her lyrical content doesn't differ too much from Beyonce's content. I guess if you only listen to radio or like a certain groove, beyonce is not the artist for you.

nothing beyonce is doin this

nothing beyonce is doin this time around is interesting to me. I honestly dont kno wat happen. I stan for beyonce and i can honestly say that there is not one hit single on this album. Best thing i never had is the closest thing to a hit and i highly doubt it will perform well. After the video for best thing is release bey may is well start workin on another album becuz there is no other single worthy tracks on the album.

I just went to aolmusic and

I just went to aolmusic and listened to the entire CD to give it a chance. It is so hard to listen to the songs because she is practically yelling over the music. Most of the music does not match the lyrics and they are jumpy I liked the song "I was here" but it sounded so sad as if she was planning to die or something One other thing is that she really must work on her pronunciation she says thing like "wit" instead of with. I think the concept was good but it sounds rushed. maybe she had to hurry up because it was leaked, but she should re-do the CD if its top sales that she is looking for. on the other hand if she is looking for a modeling career, then the album is just fine

Beyonce is experiencing her

Beyonce is experiencing her first Saturn's Return: The first Saturn return is most significant because it represents the first test of character and the structures a person has built his/her life upon. According to traditions, should these structures be unsound, or if a person is living out of touch with her/his true values, the Saturn return will be a time of upheaval and limitations as Saturn forces him/her to jettison old concepts and worn out patterns of living. It is not uncommon for relationships and jobs to end during this time of life restructuring and revaluation. But the Saturn return is not all about painful endings. During this time, astrologers note that goals are consolidated and people tend to gain a better vision of where they are going in life. There are added responsibilities and a person may reap the rewards from her/his hard work. Many major life milestones seem to happen around the ages of 29 and 30. This is why astrologers believe that the 30th birthday is such a major rite of passage — because it marks the true beginning of adulthood, self-evaluation, independence, ambition and self-actualization. The planet Saturn represents many archetypes, such as Father Time, the Grim Reaper and its scythe, Chronos, and the Lord of Karma and teacher. It is the ruler of limitations, fears, seriousness, responsibilities, burdens and lessons. While those concepts may come across as negative, Saturn also astrologically rules over civilization, government, structures, harvests, prestige, maturity, discipline and order.

Sorry but this CD ain't

Sorry but this CD ain't hitting on nothing! The 80s sound has been done already and even then, it wasn't that hot unless you were Prince, MJ, or someone who had their own unique spin on it. This shit is basic 80s with nothing special. Jill Scott's new one dropped and it is FIYAH!
