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?!

Giving this a listen for the

Giving this a listen for the 2nd time as I type this and its getting redundant to say, once again, I'm not happy with this single. If Beyonce was a less talented singer than this may be excusable and her vocals are ok on this, aside from that growl she keeps doing to I guess add soul to her voice(?) but there's just something I'm not feeling about any of her stuff lately. Maybe she really is overexposed or maybe the hype has been too much. This is like the 4th track and I'm still waiting for that 'new genre of music'. *kanye shrug*

If she does a video for this

If she does a video for this song, she should recreate the talent show performance by Lamda Lamda Lamda in Revenge of the Nerds (Youtube it if you don't know to what iAm referring). That would be Marty McFly than a mug. Real talk. #NARF
