Considering she was so unoriginal and sampled the ENTIRE track of Vybz Kartel/Major Lazer - Pon de floor?

Music gets sampled all the time. For her to get her song released, she must've acquired the rights to have done so, i.e. Major Lazer and Vybz Kartel allowed her to do so.

It's a legit sample, it's not like when Lady Gaga steals other people's music without asking and then claims it's her own.

That said, I don't really see any point in the song because it adds nothing to Pon de Floor but alternative vocals...

personally, I can't stand it! its very lacking lyrically and for such a talented singer it doesn't show off her voice at all. she has so much talent but her music doesn't reflect her talent at all. its not a great choice for a first single. but because its a beyonce song its bound to do well in the charts. its already set to make the top ten in the UK. I'm a fan of some of beyonce's songs like listen, broken hearted girl, deja vu and crazy in love but this is just the lowest of low for her.

I think its horrible, she has such an amazing voice and shes blatantly wasting it on a song like this. Its too repetative, and not something that is particularly easy to listen too.

I think the sample is alrite, but her vocals are a bit repetitive.

An OK club track. It might do well if she performs it on TV.

If she sampled it she would have had the rights, it's not a risk a major label would take. Either way though, the song is tragically bad.

Pon de Floor is a great track. This is essentially PdF with new vocals, and they aren't great. I'll stick to the original thanks.

I'm a big Beyonce fan, but this song is kinda meh. She has done so much better stuff, that this is quite a disappointment :nothing:

I've never heard of Pon De Floor, but I think it's kinda cool. The beat in it is better than in Beyonce's song.

I really don't like it at all. I prefer the original. I heard they're no longer going to make it her first single because it's been getting a bad reaction. I think it's just going to be a promo song for the album.

I really like Beyonce but I was kinda disappointed with it. Rumour is that it won't be her first single though, and that this is just a buzz single.

She's releasing the first single off her new album soon, and the leaked snippets sound much better (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CdMM5iNW3AA)

There is something extremely annoying about Beyonce. Seems like a complete narcissist, her voice is also extremely annoying. This song nearly sends me into a fit. And not in a good way.
And all these songs 'empowering women' are cringe-worthy.

It honestly sounds like noise/chanting. I usually like Beyonce but this i could do without.
