    Beyoncé - act ii COWBOY CARTER

    My Rose / Be Alive works so well… I also felt like My Rose ended a bit inconclusively with the repeated “I hope…” and Be Alive picks it from there and says “it feels so good to be alive, got all my family by my side, couldn’t take off this black off, lift my head up with pride, etc. “ It’s a...

    Sometimes I start the album in different parts too but AMEN always makes me crave for AMERIICAN REQUIEM so I end up spinning it from the start again.

    After posting about the anniversary of Renaissance World Tour, Parkwood went like “now back to Cowboy Carter” Back to what? act i had THE GAYS by its side, filling the promotion gap with real life parties, choreographies, virals, memes, etc. act ii doesn’t have that level of support in real...

    It was around 4 months, between the original bare-bone-ish Renaissance and its Deluxe vynil reissue. Not sure if this was how long they took to sell the original print or to get the Deluxe ready in the factories.

    Beyoncé opening for Beyoncé… Plus the fact Giselle is no stranger to opening her albums with ballad sections. Before chroming herself into the world of Renaissance, she wanted to make sure we got a bit of her personal statement “I Am…” side. Plus Dangerously in love completing 20 years and...

    Madonna - The Celebration Tour

    The connection between Up Down Suite and Break My Soul gets me every time. I remember listening to Up Down Suite in March 2022 and talking to a friend how much I loved that house sound and wishing for a house music renaissance. Roll on July 2022 and I was never the same.

    Madonna - The Celebration Tour

    you can tell Anitta had no rehearsal as Madonna kept telling her to sit down and at one point even opened her legs to prevent Anitta from standing. A bit awkward to watch. Pabllo on the other hand was amazing - it felt like one of us up there.

    Madonna - The Celebration Tour

    wonderful register of a wonderful show at a wonderful place. if the live edit was that great, imagine with some time on the editing room? it feels like a historical document already. The details of it. Wow. By the way… Shanti/Ashtangi drums on the ending of Justify My Love? Reverend Stuart...

    Madonna - The Celebration Tour

    Anitta initially said immediately yes to Madonna - as you do!! - but then had to say no because of being already confirmed at MET Gala. She was torn from the start and after sending her team into a meltdown she was able to accommodate both. She was supposed to be have a bigger part at the show...

    Madonna - The Celebration Tour

    I just read that Anitta’s participation had to be reduced as she wouldn’t have time for rehearsals due being at the MET Gala. So Faz Gostoso ain’t happening it seems.

    Beyoncé - act ii COWBOY CARTER

    S/H/B is the victory lap of the album. From the “I’m coming home, sweet country home” lyrics alluding to her return to home, to her loved ones or to Country Music itself on Sweet, to the psychedelia lust drop of Honey to the act I coded Buckiin’ where she says what she needs to says with the...
