Beyonce's birthday playlist
Yesterday, as I was scrolling through my Facebook feed, I came across Beyonce’s birthday playlist. Of course I know when her birthday is. I’m surprised it’s not a national holiday.
Yes, it’s a thinly veiled attempt at plugging in Jay Z’s Tidal company.
But the playlist, itself is a hilarious study in ass-kissery. Here’s the intro:
“In honor of her birthday, Beyoncé’s loved ones dedicate the songs that narrate their most cherished moments with her.”
In other words…
IT’S ALL ABOUT BEYONCE.
I would tell you what I think about the songs, but you can’t even play them without a Tidal account. It’s mostly old school R&B, sprinkled with Beyonce’s singles.
Surprisingly, Jay Z chose “Yellow”, by Coldplay. I guess it makes sense, since they’re so tight with the Paltrow-Martin family. The little note he left is cute, too, if you can overlook the fact that the song means nothing.
There’s also a note by Blue Ivy, who chose “Part of Your World”, from The Little Mermaid: “Mommy, you sung this to me all the time. Happy birthday, Mommy!”
Um, WHAT? I need to hear Beyonce sing this!
