As I'm talking to someone through facebook, she sent me the new Beyonce song. After giving it a listen and feeling ready to kill the streets on a night out (not Lavish or Gentleman-esque, but hey), I told her "Beyonce is back. Hitboy song is crazy!". All she said was the truth: "No, Beyonce has been back. It's Sasha Fierce who's back."
Honestly, whether its this sentence from this specific person or the rush of a Hit-Boy track that levels on the amount of epicness of "Niggas in Paris", the rawer and bitchy alter-ego Sasha Fierce has reached the surface again. Transparent, trap and crossing the boundaries where a lady turns into a leader, unstoppable. It's this powerful and intimidating side that we loved in Sasha Fierce.
"Bow Down" and "I've Been On" are both separate stations within one train ride, a Southern celebration of Beyonce showing every woman that she is still the queen and her throne will not be taken. Bow Down, for she has chosen her place. And if you try to take it, she will step on you. Or in less metaphorical words, Queen Bey rules.
