    Anything remotely associated with Beyonce I would not even bother trying. How does one even get a name like Beyoncé anyway????

    I haven't heard any of this album, and I'm not listening to that clipjust now because I am listening to something else...

    but I have heard a handful of earlier songs from Solange, and I will say that, while I wasn't going to race out and buy it, I liked what I heard a whole lot better than anything I have heard from Beyonce.

    Check out for example a song called "Lovers In the Parking Lot." You have to agree that it's at least an interesting tune. (It helps if you just listen to the video without watching it.)



    Also, surely someone who, as she did, gets into a fight with Jay-Z and is so pissed off at him that she slaps him repeatedly, is deserving of a few automatic points just for that.

    I just listened to that clip that MH posted. You know something... I actually think that's not a bad song. My big criticism of it is that the synthesised percussion is too loud and too prominent. If that was mixed down a fair bit. I could see myself going back to that song for repeated listenings.
