#StayInTune with DJ Freedom where #goodmusic prevails!
Say what you want about Beyonce, but her accolades are self explanatory.
She made more than anyone else from touring alone ($256,084,556), More video plays than just about everyone (over 2 billion), More Grammy nominations than anyone...you get the idea.
She employs DJs on her tour; she sold out Wembly Stadium in London July 2 & 3 with the help of DJ Magnum; sold out Citi Field in Queens, NYC with DJ Khaled June 7 and 8; and with DJ Scratch in Chicago May 27-28. That will kill any noise about her keeping her ears to the streets...and the clubs.
My Brother in music told me he was fortunate enough to get his team to be blessed by a spot on Bae's "Lemonade" album...and there wasn't a DJ or radio station that could avoid at least one song from Beyoncé this year...try as some claimed they did/would.
She of course made a supreme dent with her performance during the halftime show at last year's Super Bowl-and the surprise release of "Lemonade" with a full length visual of every song caused not only fans' jaws to drop but Kanye West to run his jibs: the visual album is a concept he claims to have given Beyoncé a few years ago (proof positive in his little known "Run Away" mini movie). Controversy will follow our Sister as it is what comes along when you are at the top of the game.
Jay Z has been low key to much of the formation but Bae's sister Solange managed to squeeze out a superior than most album that sports visuals in her videos that prove earthy unlike Beyoncé giving us the glitz.
My choice to give Beyoncé R&B Artist of 2016 did not come easy and you may be surprised to find out it was NOT based on all the accolades. I based it on my own features of her newest album on many of my radio shows, submissions by DJs to radio and club for at least 4 singles and my realization that Beyoncé has solidified her place in black music as an artist who can cross over without selling short her creative output.
