BEYONCE SURPRISES FANS BY SECRETLY RELEASING ALBUM ON ITUNES + SHE FEATURES CHIMAMANDA ADICHIE!
Beyonce... Mama ni yen! Queen B l'omo! Beyonce surprised her fans by dropping her 5th studio album a few hours ago!
Kini big deal? Read my points below.
1. She did not promote it prior to releasing the album, you definitely want to promote to achieve maximum sales. Till now, madam Beyonce has said nothing about the album!
2. The album has a whooping 31 tracks! Thirty One. It features JayZ, Drake, Frank Ocean, Michelle Williams, Pharrell, Justin Timberlake, Kelly Rowland, Blue Ivy and some other artistes.
3. This is the epic part: all the songs have their own videos! OMG! Whaaaat?! She released 14 new tracks and 17 songs out of the 31 have their own video? Beyonce is definitely one the most hardworking artistes I know. She's consistent and works hard. I salute her!
Here's the Chimamanda speech feature in one of Beyonce's songs, "Flawless"
“We teach girls to shrink themselves, to make themselves smaller.
We say to girls – you can have ambition, but not too much.
You should aim to be successful but not too successful otherwise you will threaten the man.
Because I am female I am expected to aspire to marriage.
I am expected to make my life choices always keeping in mind that marriage is the most important.
A marriage can be a source of joy and love and mutual support.
But why do we teach girls to aspire to marriage and we don’t teach boys the same?
We raise girls to see each other as competitors not for jobs or for accomplishments,
Which I think can be a good thing.
But for the attention of men.
We teach girls that they cannot be sexual beings in the way that boys are.
Feminist: A person who believes in the economic, social and political equality of the sexes.”
