When you are Beyoncé, life is but a dream (every time I type this phrase I get this song stuck in my head). The mega star co-directed the new HBO documentary which gives you an intimate peek into her life, including some scenes with her elusive daughter Blue Ivy. She was quoted as saying “This film is about a woman and all of the challenges that we all go through,” and I have to argue with that just a tiny bit, as I myself am a woman and definitely do not go through the challenge of being married to an uber-rich mega star like Jay-Z, being loved by millions and going on tour. Nor have I performed at the Super Bowl. Not yet anyway. There’s always next year for me.
Personally, I am a little over the mega-star documentary movies (Bieber? Katy Perry?), but who isn’t? Oh that’s right… millions of you: our faithful readers and TV watchers. Not only did 1.3 million of you tune in to Beyoncé’s interview on “Oprah’s Next Chapter,” but 1.8 million of you also tuned in to HBO to catch this documentary, making this the most-watched documentary in nearly 10 years on HBO. How do you like them apples? I think it’s safe to say that Mrs. Sasha Fierce Knowles-Carter has herself some awesome fans. Bottom line: Beyoncé is faboosh.
One of our readers wanted to know what song was used in the end of the documentary. And well, I am shocked (this is sarcasm here folks) to tell you that it’s a Beyoncé song. But what’s that you say, I haven’t heard this version before? Well that’s because it’s a Dubstep remix of “Crazy in Love” by FeelX AKA V Ä R T. Click here for the full song on YouTube.
Since I am having problems finding information about the Helsinki based FeelX, I thought I would take a moment to educate you, and myself, on Dubstep. Dubstep, according to Wikipedia, is a “genre of electronic dance music that originated in South London in the 1990s…The music generally features syncopated drum and percussion patterns with bass lines that contain prominent sub bass frequencies.” Typical instruments used in Dubstep include sequencer, turntables, sampler, drum machine, synthesizer, keyboard and a computer. As it’s become more popular, you can hear Dubstep sounds in music by artist such as Britney Spears (Blackout album), La Roux (Bulletproof), Rhianna and even Snoop Dog. Consider yourself educated. The more you know.
