After seeing the spoilers online of the OTR II tour, I was upset because I saw similarities from the Formation Tour and Beychella performances.
I found it hard to believe that Bey and the Carters would do us in the hive like this.
I was proven wrong and I coudn't have been happier.
The album, Love Is Everything, dropped and I was in the middle of a baby shower of my good friend's. So, I wasn't able to indulge until later.
The songs are a grown and mature vibe from Bey and HOV.
Gone are the poppy tunes of Crazy In Love and Upgrade U and more of a raw sound. More Drunk In Love.
The songs address more political and social issues. The NFL. Cultural appropriation. Jay's love affair. Their kids. ETC.
I admit, it was a little slow at first. But it grew on me when I heard the songs I liked.
So, what are my fave songs?
I LOVE APESHIT.
The Carters forced us to go APESHIT when they dropped the amazing video for the song.
The video was filmed in the Louvre. THE MUSEUM, GUYS!!!
Watch the history being made below.
My other favorites?
HEARD ABOUT US
The Carters have definitely grown up.
They don't need to sell for the masses anymore.
They don't need to worry about making money... they can make the music they want to make.
In the photos surfaced on social media from the tour and the tour book, the couple is more open. They seem to be in a better place and finally letting us all in.
I CANNOT WAIT TO SEE THIS TOUR.
