Beyonce debut her second single ‘1+1’ on American Idol to rave reviews. Immediately following her performance, Beyonce’s fan replied in unison that a hit was created. While Beyonce’s “Run the World, Girls” was still dividing fans down the middle, “1+1” is bringing them back together. Beyonce who’d performed earlier with the women of American Idol changed into in a gorgeous two toned charcoal gown to belt out her new love songs. Sample lyrics:
“Hey! I don’t know much about guns but I … I’ve been shot by you/ Hey! And I don’t know when I’m gonna die, but I hope that I’m gonna die by you/ Hey! And I don’t know much about fighting, but I, I know I will fight for you/ Hey! Just when I ball up my fist, I realize that I’m laying right next to you.”
To add another layer of “awww” to Beyonce’s performance, husband Jay-Z posted a video of Beyonce rehearsing “1+1” in her dressing room with these words,
Sometimes you need perspective. You’ve been right in front of greatness so often that you need to step back and see it again for the first time. This is the dressing room rehearsal for American Idol. NO MICROPHONE. No effects.
If it’s not clear by now – Beyonce will be taking over your iPod this summer – like it or not. Did Beyonce win you back over with her debut of “1+1”?
