Beyonce’s new album 4 has made its debut to her fans’ ears the new-fashioned way — in a leak to the Internet — but for those of you who have decided to hold out three more weeks to procure the LP the legal way, we’ll throw you a bone — jump below to listen to “Love On Top”, a midtempo, joyful tune that doubles to a throwback to a simpler time, somewhere around the time Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston were recording sweet, earnest love songs. Listen below.
Beyonce – “Love On Top”
Declares Bey over happy horns blaring, “Baby it’s you, you’re the one I love, you’re the one I need, you’re the only one I see / C’mon baby it’s you, you’re the one that gives your all, you’re the one I can always call / When I need to make everything stop / Finally, you put my love on top.”
Beyonce’s energy is infectious, and there’s a bit more charisma here than what we’ve heard in other 4 track “Start Over”, but let’s be honest — if there’s ever a Sex & The City 3, this would be first choice for the song that plays over the credits. Basically, it’s not exactly breaking any boundaries or surprising us in any way.
