Lyric Battle: Ol-Skool Beyoncé vs. New-Skool Beyoncé
Bey on The Writings On The Wall album cover vs. her latest record 4 — is it just me, or does she get more youthful-looking with time?
We couldn't help but notice the #MyFavoriteBeyonceLyrics hashtag trending on Twitter, so it's only natural that this edition of Lyric Battle is featuring a little 2001 Beyoncé vs. 2011 Beyoncé. Not only has her look drastically changed (check out those cornrows!), her songwriting has matured over the years, and her fans have stuck by her side for pretty much her whole career in music (us included!).
But what theme did we go with? Independent Women, of course! Beyoncé has never been a demure, vulnerable popstar — along with Destiny's Child, Bey filled the "Girl Power" void after the Spice Girls hype died down, and hasn't stopped since. So, do you prefer Bey's ol-skool "Independent Women Pt. I" or the new jam "Run The World (Girls)"?
