Let's kick this party off!
























































































































...literally.

50

(...is that chain going into her vagina?)

SCORE: 7.454
Highest Score: 10 x 7 (@Number @allyshone @Oceandrive @ohdenny @Push @ericcccc @supersoon)
Lowest Score: 2 x 1 (@HeartSwells)
My Score: 6.5/10

This not being ejected in the bottom half of the rate (...just) was one of the biggest surprises when I was sent the spreadsheet (one of many surprises... kii) last week. I mean, I'm obviously not too big a fan as you can see by my score, but it had all the trappings of a PJ pariah. Unashamedly R&B, rap verse, one of the weakest songs on its parent album... And yet here we are, kicking off the Top 50 with it. Was it the Formation Tour performance that helped with that rather generous average? Let's find out.

(Searching for the word "party" in order to find the relevent commentary in this document is... not helpful.)

We kick off the festivities with ericcccc and his 10/10, " YAAAAAAASSSS. So fucking nice. A staple in any summer playlist." and constantino is one of the first to arrive also; too young to know that you don't show up at a party any earlier than two hours late, "This is a serviceable throwback bop, but there this is done far better elsewhere on the album." His commentary also included what was obviously going to be a link to an Adore Delano GIF, but I wasn't in the mood to entertain such chaos, confusion and madness. It would appear Sam de Jour peaked too early... I mean, obviously just in general, but in this party-themed write up, he's spewing in next door's flower bed, "Trash." he burps out. Lemme hold the scorched remains of your hair back for you, sis. Remyky22 is starting to look a bit tipsy too, "Pretty laid back and very nice, but nothing special." Poor K94 can't even speak. All I can see is the bare link to a GIF that I can't be bothered clicking. Poor it.

Sprockrooster is here! ...to try and take over the playlist and put on some Anastacia, " André 3000 saves this song for me." Girl, sit down. FresherThanYou wrests control back, "Low key one of her coolest songs." If you had asked me during the two minutes she did of it on tour this summer, I would have agreed. "I can’t cook either, Bey." admits send photo, not knowing it's too early in the evening to be drunkenly attempting to cook some pasta. KAG is playing the long game and only having a few sips with his 7/10, "This song only clicked with me until I saw the video and then earlier this summer, when she performed it on tour. I really love how smooth and carefree she sounds during the verses as it adds to the song's sentiment." I'm sure you'll turn up later on, sis. ohnostalgia already appears to be at the existential crisis portion of the evening, " I should be all over this collab, but it's not quite clicking." Ask the tough questions of yourself later, sis. We've still got three eliminations to go tonight!

Oceandrive is decidedly not dripping swagu as he sips on the same damn glass of red wine for three hours and chain smokes outside. He's still in the spirit though, "Throwbacks calling back to the fine RnB and Hip Hip of the 90s aren't exactly uncommon these days, but ones that are done as well as this are. If you delete Kanye this could easily pass as something from 1997 and I live for it." Meanwhile, CasuallyCrazed has found a shag, " Now this is a sex jam. Those layered vocals are a constant aural orgasm... and the Andre feature is perfect." Do you rate all orgasms 8/10, boo? You're not doing it right if so. dodoriazarbon bops in the living room, "Gone up in my estimations post Formation tour!" and Laura Vanderbooben is right there with him, "I didn't really even like this song until Formation Tour, I gotta admit." IMHO is still enjoying the conversation in the kitchen, however, "Delete Kanye's part entirely and this becomes a ridiculous smooth bump and grind jam, with the mellow only being ever so slightly harshed by Bey's slightly severe vocals on the verses." and Jersey is finishing off his bottle, "Novelty bop in the best way possible. The chorus annoys me now."

As mentioned multiple times above, the song received an outing on this year's Formation Tour, acting as an odd highlight of the entire setlist complete with confetti. It also got a performance during the Roseland showcases, the Revel show, and the first leg of the Mrs Carter Show Tour, along with a video. You know, despite being pregnant, Beyoncé really did hustle and make sure 4 at least got a expansive visual.







 
He/They
Party is useless, it was definitely "I'll light a cig and scan the crowd" time when it cropped up during the Formation Tour.

SCORE: 7.541
Highest Score: 10 x 8 (@send photo @2014 @PLUTO @beyoncésweave @lalaclairi_ @Lost In Japan. @ericcccc @supersoon)
Lowest Score: 1 x 1 (@AlexD)
My Score: 5.5/10

...How? How did this get this far? How did it only get ten scores below 6/10 in a rate of nearly eighty people? How did no one maybe ask Beyoncé to lay down vocals for the second verse before claiming a lead artist credit? Like... it's just a rather basic soundtrack song with a classic video from Hype "OMG! BORDERS!" Williams and... that's it. In Beyoncé's Top 50 when the likes of "Suga Mama" and "Scared Of Lonely" have been punched out? How? Maybe the commentary will be more enlightening.

Let's start with constantino, who raises an important question: who the fuck needs a palate cleanser after B'Day? Apparently, he does. "This is so fucking lush and silky, I’m living! This is exactly the type of palette (RJF Note: Oop!) cleanser I needed to bring the album to a close. This would’ve got a 10 but the inclusion of two featured verses is a bit jarring." In other news, Rogue pulls no punches, "Fucking annoying. And terrible guest rap." Go in! Oceandrive appears to give a decent score only for devilment, " The fact it shot off and stayed at number one for so long when it sounds like Bey recorded it whilst waiting for Michelle and Kelly to bring her purse and coat is a bit of a kii." and eccentricsimply needs to chill, " LISTEN. I started listening to this song and I was very confused because I did not remember it at all. Then when Bey came on I jumped on my bed because HOW COULD I FORGET ABOUT THIS SONG." Easily.

Sprockrooster makes a reference I don't get and don't want to Google, "That outro sounds like the Air Alert going off, but I am here for it." Okay. FresherThanYou courts danger, "This could definately make a comeback on tour soon??" Um... A world of no. Whole galaxies and universes of no. KAG brings back a bit of sense, "This is fun but it's nowhere near her best. I think I like the video more than I actually like the song it belongs to." I don't think I've even watched the video since 200...4? 5? When did this come out? Who even cares? K94 labels it a, "Solid bop." aaronhansome is taken to church, but when isn't he, "I live for that last almost-minute of just her ad-libs."

ericcccc has a case of the Britneys, citing nostalgia as his main reason for thinking this 5.5/10 mess is actually a 10/10 masterpiece, "Okay… this was my one of my favorite song when I was younger. One of the many signs that I was a big homo. I can’t believe my mom didn’t know sooner (she probably did know)." send photo also gives this a 10/10 and cites that monotonous mess of a chorus as one of her best! What?! "This is my first 10 isn’t it? I’m not sure how fans feel about this song. Whatever, one of her best choruses." CasuallyCrazed calls out a lot of the problems with this one, "I don’t understand how Bey got away with calling this her own song when Swizz Beatz tells us its actually Destiny’s Child right there at the beginning. Justice for poor Kelly Rowland, who sings that entire second verse and yet is nowhere to be seen in the video. Still, it’s kind of a slut empowerment anthem." Eeeeeeeh...

We close with IMHO, who has as many questions as I did, "#Justice4Kelly, did Ms. Rowland get a cheque for this #1? Did Miss Tina think she was cute styling her daughter in all those pink, flammable fabrics? Did Bun B and Slim Thug ever bother the Hot 100 again? I'm wondering all of this because there's only so long this basic bop can hold my full attention..." Basically.

That didn't really explain anything, did it?

If the song received more than the one performance below, I don't want to know. In it, Beyoncé sings the first verse entirely acapella, before hopping and patting her weave to the chorus playback. That is literally what happens. Check out the apparently HOT HOT HOT SEXY !!! video below.




 
Top 50 is a good rank for Party when it's historically crashed out first from 4 almost every time. A sweet and steady improvement. Just a brilliant, carefree, throwback moment.
 
@IMHO: I know something about a US rapper and here to share. Slim Thug also had a hit with Gwen Stefani (but forgot the song's name and I am to unbothered to look it up). Aside from that I do not know him (but that is nothing new).
