Some people represent The Bay, Brooklyn, ATL, DC, LA or the many other cities around the world. However, everyone demands respect wherever they are no matter if it is the block, yard or Burbs. Beyonce’s “Bow Down” lets you know exactly how she feels about her hood and any busters that want to disrespect.
"I know when you were little girls, you dreamed of being in my world…I took some time to live my life, but don't think I’m just his little wife," King B croons on the track.
Beyonce rarely talks tough to anyone, but she turns into a monster on her new track “Bow Down”. It seems something or someone has pressed her buttons. Beyonce makes it clear where she is from, what she has accomplished and what she will not tolerate on the track. She also throws in a couple B words just in case you thought she was soft. (Funk Master Flex voice) From the sounds of this track, its safe to say that you shouldn’t take the beautiful Beyonce for a sucker. Beyonce is simply letting us know that she is a product of her environment and won't back down to anyone.
If you want more icing on the cake, Beyonce as a solo artist, has sold over 13 million albums in the United States and over 118 million records worldwide, making her one of the best-selling music artists of all time. So for those who love or even hate King B, here are 5 reasons she earned this track “Bow Down”.
(Destiny Child) Gang Affiliated â She is from the gang called Destiny’s Child and they are survivors. The group, which includes Beyonce, Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland are the models of what a female group should be at a time when groups are extinct. These three women ride or die for each other on and off the stage. If you mess with one you mess with them all.
With all this going on, its not hard to see why Beyonce would tell all the other ladies to “Bow Down”. We can only speculate who she was talking to but regardless it seems like Beyonce wants to be heard and is not trying to cool off anytime soon.
Do you think Beyonce went too far or is it just a way for her to express herself?
Do you think this will affect her image?
She’s A Hustler â Beyonce is a true hustler. She has been part of the best-selling girls group of all time and has sold 13 million albums nationwide and 75 million worldwide. She has collected checks for ten films and has been the face of brands such as Pepsi and L’Oreal to name a few. The hustling diva also has two fragrances with Tommy Hilfiger called True Star and True Star Gold.(Where does she stop???) Not to mention the endorcement deal with Vizio. She also owns House of Dereon with her mother. I’m missing so much, but I would be here all day. The point is she hustles hard!!!
Last Name Hold Weight
Jay-Z & BROOKLYN – It’s crazy to see how a crack hustling “American Gangster” from the mean streets of BROOKLYN can come through and win the heart of the first lady of Pop/R&B as well as the world. Jay-Z is a household name and there is no disputing that. As he says “You can love me or hate me, either or”. It seems like Beyonce has gotten this playboy to stop pimping and become a family man. Not only does Beyonce have the support of her hometown of Houston, her fans, she also has BK aka Brooklyn. (Don’t be surprised if you see Beyonce with her hair wrapped on the stoops of Marcy Projects posted up with Jay.)
Alter Ego â Sasha Fierce is Beyonce’s alter ego. It seems that while she was making this track it was Sasha spitting on the track. Sasha has a mind of her own. She has an attitude and can get as ratchet as she needs to get when it is time to “turn up.”
Hometown is Houston â The energetic diva Beyonce is from H-Town and they don’t back down to nobody on the North or South side of the H. Houston is the home of the sizzurp and chopped & screwed music. Even Drake shouts out Houston on numerous occasions. In Houston they do everything big and Beyonce is no different. The 3rd Coast representer has been part of putting Houston on the map and making it a center on the urban music and cultural scene. With the 3rd Coast (Houston) on her back it seems she has a lot of people natives that rock with her. Here are a couple of Houston heavy hitters that might throw there wait around if the Queen of Houston was pressed: Bun B (UGK), Scarface (rapper), Lil’ Flip and Slim Thug. The Houston clique is tight. Beware!
