Unplugged Headphones: Before I Let Go (Beyoncé)

“AND I REALLY LOVE YOU, YOU SHOULD KNOW, I WANNA MAKE SURE I’M RIGHT BOY, BEFORE I LET GO”

 

And the post-Lemonade victory lap continues…. Mr. Carter, you are officially out of the woods!

The last time Beyoncé put out an album it was detailing her journey through heartbreak and reconciliation after falling victim to infidelity, and while Jay Z had to deal with consequences of his actions, the rest of us men weren’t let off the hook either…

The customary “that n*gga ain’t sh*t” look that you can expect to see on the faces of the many women who listened to the “Lemonade” album when they saw me walk passed.

But that’s all in the past now and long may it stay that way!

“Before I Let Go” is the type of celebratory, feel good anthem that I haven’t heard in a while, and it’s got a Cameo “Candy” sample too… not bad for a documentary bonus track.

What caught me off guard the most about this song was that It was produced by Tay Keith… yes, the same Tay Keith that produced “Look Alive”… yes, the same Tay Keith that produced “Sicko Mode”… yes, the same Tay Keith that shouldn’t have any business making such an upbeat song with Beyoncé… thank you Tay Keith, we appreciate you stepping out of your lane for this one.

“Before I Let Go”… welcome to the cookout playlist!
