Beyonce`: 1+1 Review & Idol Performance “1+1”, the 2nd single from Beyonce’s forthcoming album, “4”, is a definite rebound from the hard-to-sing-along with “Run the World” (review link below). Less is more with the single as it has simple, yet metaphoric lyrics and basic, but beautiful piano/string orchestration. “1+1” is so smooth and romantic; you might end up with your clothes off if you’re near the right person. Beyonce` debuted the song live on American Idol’s finale last night after the finalists performed a medley of her songs. You can watch both performances below.

I absolutely adore this song. I am also please with the more "face to face" feelings that I'm getting with this new Beyonce' era. I feel like she's getting on my level again. I wish her success but I don't want to feel like she's to big for me to get a chance to shake her hand and say "You help me be comfortable in my skin and like I can conquer society's view."

LOL so I just heard the song...secretly I like it, but I feel like it should've mirrored the demo version from the dream better (with the harmonies and drums) idk why, but it gives it more of a umph to the overall sonic image portrayed through the compositions. I like how she actually sounds like a human now and focuses less on doing the most pyrotechnical vocals and more on emotion though, so I can't wait to hear the other singles...I probably still won't buy it tho. RTW tainted this meal. lol
