THE-DREAM REVEALS BEYONCE EXPERIMENTED W/ FELA INSPIRED SOUND FOR ALBUM


Throughout the years of Beyoncé's solo career she has been known to experiment with many different sounds with her music. It all started with the urban sounds of her debut album Dangerously In Love & then it went into the theatrical melodies of the fan favorite B'Day. She then went on to construct a more mainstream sound with I Am...Sasha Fierce, but it was 4 that made many remember that with all of her experimenting she never forgot her roots as a R&B artist. Let's be honest, Bey's latest self-titled album proves that she can get crunk & sing over melodies that usually only rappers should be doing which is the reason why she's the queen. 

Get more details below. 

One of Beyoncé's long time music collaborators The-Dream has now spoken publicly about a sound that Bey was prepping for her 2011 release of 4. He spoke with Genius.com revealing some details. 

“We did a whole Fela album that didn’t go up. It was right before we did 4. We did a whole different sounding thing, about twenty songs. She said she wanted to do something that sounds like Fela. That’s why there’s so much of that sound in the “End of Time.”

There’s always multiple albums being made. Most of the time we’re just being creative, period. We’re talking about B, somebody who sings all day long and somebody.”
