Beyoncé’s “Break My Soul” Reviewed

Before we go one step further, “Break My Soul” is light years ahead of last year’s disastrous “Be Alive” from the tennis greats Serena and Venus William’s father movie “King William”. That was sop bad it didn’t even chart and remember Queen Bey (and everyone else) it isn’t pop music if it isn’t popular.

So six years after the great Lemonade, she returns proper with, by a wild coincident also uses house beats just like Drake’s new album, and both Bey and Drake are the better for it. Sampling both Robin S.’s 1990 “Show Me Love” and Bounce great Big Freedia’s 2014 “Explode” opening salvo as well as a chant to lead us:

Release ya anger, release ya mind
Release ya job, release the time
Release ya trade, release the stress
Release the love, forget the rest

Bey looks at the working life and implies that the way forward leads straight through the dancefloor from her crowded mansion.

I’m not sure how this is play. It may be a little too house heavy with no clear melody line. Bey has been away for awhile and she needed a sure shot though at her and Hova’s level a hit is just a matter of pride not finance.

An anthem for Bey to herself more than anyone, it let’s us in and if you love dance it should win you over.

Grade: A-
