Beyoncé, bootylicious queen of dance floor friendly R’n’B, is back with her brand spanking new single ‘Déjà Vu’. It’s her second collaboration with real life beau Jay-Z. The first was, of course, 2003’s anthem of the summer: ‘Crazy in Love’, the first release from her five times Grammy award wining debut album ‘Dangerously In Love’.
‘Déjà vu’ is the first offering from Beyoncé’s sophomore album ‘B ‘ Day’-due to be released on the 24th of September. Hmmm, there seems to be a pattern forming here?
If past success is anything to go by, then ‘Déjà vu’ is set to fare very well indeed, thank you very much.
And so it should.
It’s an insanely infectious blend of beats, bass lines and breathy vocals which practically insists you get up there and shake your booty. OK, so it’s not a huge departure from her previous efforts, but it’s got all the slick production her songs are noted for, and her voice has acquired a rawness to it (bad case of strep B perhaps?) that gives ‘Déjà vu’ a previously unheard, flinty, ‘I mean business’, edge. ‘Déjà vu’ proves, once and for all, that Beyoncé has made it. Destiny’s Child, who?
