12. Forward (Featuring James Blake)



Highest Scores: 10 (Pavel), 9 (Kylie Jackson), 8 (Jade,Davidson & ssKiss)
Lowest Scores: 1 (Scene), 2 (River Lea), 4/4.5 (Liam & Nick F1)
Average: 6:025
Total Score: 120.5


Here, we unsurprisingly have the lowest track, the track is 1:19 minutes long which is a shame as personally I think it has so MUCH potential just sucks because it could be amazing, Beyoncé's beautiful vocals over James Blake's dreamy production/vocals it could have been a proper standout on Lemonade. Beyoncé...what a wasted potential this was, shame on you cry.gif. Aside from my opinion, the track was the lowest scoring track here but shockingly it did get a 10 from Pavel so it does have fans here.

11. Love Draught



Highest Scores: 9 (Kylie Jackson) 8 (Burbe, River Lea & AaronTM) 7/7.5 (Cameron, Davidson, Liam, Ultraviolence1989, Josh & ssKiss)
Lowest Scores: 4 (Scene), 5 (Joe, Jade, Pavel, mr pmt, Nick F1 & Mdh)
Average: 6:425
Total Score: 128.5


Next Up is a song that is lovely to listen to but doesn't feel like a standout. The voting seemed to agree with nobody giving a score higher then 9 ohmy.gif. The song which according to co-writer Ingrid Burley said 'The track is not a diss track about Jay-Z but a diss on her label, the star's Parkwood Entertainment'. The lyrics features the theme off feeling like no love there in a relationship etc. With that said, it was not enough for her to get this track high in people's affections.

If People read this, comment please, it makes me go quicker biggrin.gif

I agree with you Harry, Love Drought is quite nice but nothing special at all really, would be near the bottom of my pile too.

10. Sandcastles



Highest Scores: 10 (Ultraviolence1989, Mackenzie & Kylie Jackson) 8 (Cameron, Liam & River Lea).
Lowest Scores: 2 (Jade & Scene) 5 (Pavel, Nick F1 & Mdh).
Average: 6.8
Total Score: 136


Finishing in 10th place we have Sandcastles, I would call this the breakup ballad on this album. With lyrics like 'What is it about you?
That I can't erase baby'. Who knows if this really is about Jay-Z but however it appears he does feature in the video for this. The song is honeslty lovely but I can see why so low down. I love Beyoncé's vocals on this track as their so raw and emotional. The simple video accompies that with shots of signs of a failed realtionship and Beyoncé signing into a microphone alone (with shots of her and Jay too).

09. Pray You Catch Me



Highest Scores: 9 (Davidson, Mackenzie & Burbe) 8.5/8 (Ultraviolence1989, Josh, Pavel, River Lea & Mdh).
Lowest Scores: -1 (Scene) 6 (Jade, Slick & mr pmt).
Average: 7.125
Total Score: 142.5


Finishing with a respectable 9th position is the opening track on 'Lemonade'. Beyonce opens with a good number, which draws speculaton about being another song off the album about 'Jay-Z cheating'. The song itself is lovely even if not a massive highlight got me but A lot of you lot liked it, however, scored no more than a 9 ohmy.gif. It also scored the ONLY -1 ohmy.gif. There is some stats and exclusives for you.

Sorry for the delay on Tuesday and Wednesday I didnt feel like doing this with the weather as it was laugh.gif Today I was busy so only time I could properly do it was now. So here we have the official first UK Single from Beyoncé. The track peaked #11 in the UK. The song has the theme off 'Let me give you a reality check, you may be cheating on me but no one will love you like I do, you need to remember that or you might lose your wife. In my opinion this is my second worst of the album, becasuse it just doesnt feel like a good first single in my opinion. I can see why others like it though.

'Hold Up' is immensely irritating, glad it finished low.

Correct bottom 4! I'd have Hold Up up one position above Don't Hurt Yourself which I hope is out next.

So glad 'Hold Up' has finished this low! Easily the worst on the album for me~ (which isn't reflected by my original rate here laugh.gif but it's got worse and worse since)

07. Don't Hurt Yourself (Featuring Jack White)



Highest Scores: 11 (Jade & Josh) 10 (Slick) 9/9.5 (Davidson, Liam & AaronTM).
Lowest Scores: 5 (Burbe) 6 (Joe & Cameron) 7 (mr pmt, Nick F1 & Mdh).
Average: 8.025
Total Score: 160.5


Speaking of 'You might Lose Your Wife' here is the track that lyric is from. Don't Hurt Yourself is a pop jam with an electric guitar production provided by Jack White of White Stripes fame. The roaring vocals over the production blend well together however for a lot of you this wasn't enough as it falls to the spectacular seven. Not Bad at all though. I do get why this isn't high up in people's affections as it is really experimental for Beyoncé ohmy.gif but I think that works well for her.

Two of my favourites out already sad.gif Hold Up is definitely in my top 3/4, just the love the vibe of it. I thought it was really popular, was expecting it to be top 3 ohmy.gif

Don't Hurt Yourself is already one of my favourite all-time Bey songs and about 3x better than anything else on Lemonade. I adore how brash and loud it is and the lyrics are absolutely fantastic.


Team Sorry or 6 Inch now but expecting a win from Formation or Freedom! The latter I really don't get, one of my least faves for sure.

No big losses though 'Forward' didn't deserve last place imo.

Looking forward to the rest happy.gif

06. Daddy Lessons



Highest Scores: 11 (Ultraviolence1989 & Burbe) 10 (Cameron, Davidson, Mackenzie, Liam & River Lea) 9.5/9 (sskiss & Kylie Jackson).
Lowest Scores: 5 (Jade & Mdh) 6.5 (AaronTm) 7 (Pave & mr pmt).
Average: 8.35
Total Score: 167


Wow, Beyoncé got her cowgirl boots on and went all country on us. Well country vibes and production anyway. The song as the song suggest could be a reference to her own father and the relationship between them. If anyone didn't know her father used to be her manager so the song could be about their relationship then and how it is now. Who knows with Bey, for all we know Jay may have not even hooked up with this so called 'Becky with the good hair'. This song I could see why people would rate it low if you was not a fan of country as this song seems inspired by the genre a lot. However, boy does her voice sound good on it wub.gif

Top 5 (In random order):
6 Inch
Freedom
Formation
Sorry
All Night
