Song of the Week: ***Flawless by Beyonce ft. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie


If you know me or have been reading my blog, you know that I LOOOVVEEE Beyonce. I love the way she does her thing, she is unapologetic about who she is or how she presents herself. She is a hard worker who believes in giving her everything, no matter what she does. I am a fan, not because she looks good and makes great, relatable, head bumping music, but because of the person she is – the person I see through the media.

She released her album in December, tilted ‘Beyonce’ it is her most explicit and sexually charged work ever. It is mature and represents the point she is in her life. She is a grown married woman who can be as sexy, provocative or revealing as she wants. We the fans enjoy every moment of it, after all, most of us have been with her since day one, and are around the same age and as mature as her. Her album, like most music is not for everyone, I don’t like punk music, so I don’t listen to punk music! So, if you think her music is too sexually charged, simply, don’t listen!…for those who like it, continue reading…

The album has 17 songs, all of which I absolutely LOVE. However, I have some favorites, the first of which is ***Flawless featuring Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche. ***Flawless is in a way a feminist chant. It features excerpts from Adiche’s ‘We Should All Be Feminist’ (TEDxEuston in London) speech, which is quite empowering. The song begins with her highly controversial ‘Bow Down’, segues to Adiche, then to Flawless.

Flawless is the song you listen to when you want to feel like a badass, pumped up or just be reminded that there is no one else in the world like you. It is empowering, and reminds women that we can be whatever we want, that we should never to let our gender define how we think, what we do, who we are or what we achieve. It reminds us that no matter how we look, how we wake up…we are flawless!

…‘Ladies tell em’ I woke up like this, I woke up like this’….without further ado, heeerrreeesss ***Flawless!…You are welcome! 🙂

 

Hope You Enjoyed 🙂
