I have never purchased or downloaded a single Beyonce track prior to the release of this self-entitled album. Yet, I consider myself a fan. I like her music, but I really love the visual expression of who she is as an artist. The fashion, the hair, the makeup and dancing.
You’re probably thinking that still doesn’t make me a fan. It’s ok. Beyonce gets it. She (and her genius marketing team) know that all fans weren’t created equal. I think that’s the real reason behind this visual album. With 14 songs and 17 videos, there’s something on this album for everybody.
While some of us are breaking down the lyrics to “Drunk in Love”, I’m just stuck on the incredible style she’s serving with the fashion makeup and these hot hairdos. How many of us will be inspired to try the wavy bob, finger waves or long platinum tresses?
