Beyonce appears on the stage in sequin dress that is purposely loose around the stomach to draw attention away from her baby bump. Pregnancy is not a factor that would detour her from rocking a show, she appears more vibrant and beautiful then ever. The 1st 30 minutes, Act I, of the concert she enlightens the crowd with her story as a little girl to the mega star that she has become today. Similar to “Wynn Live In Las Vegas”, but this time around she adds various footage of herself as a little girl and behind the scenes footage with Destiny’s Child. Beyonce continues to the Act II of the concert, sitting while growling the words to “I Care” from the album 4. The audience then sings along to I Miss You, which includes footage of a pregnant Beyonce, and the couples matching, ring finger, tattoos on symbolizing a wedding ring. Beyonce becomes emotional as she wipes tears from her face and continues to finish the song off beautifully.Moving down the track list of 4, Beyonce hits it full force in the performance of songs such as “Run The World” and “End of Time.” Other highlight performances are “Countdown”, “Rather Die Young”, and the closing number “I Was Here.” All and all making it yet another phenomenal performance from Beyonce.
A pregnant Beyonce breezes through a performance of Countdown on Jay Leno. The performance was pre recorded sometime in July which explains the absencen of Bey’s baby bump. Check it out below!!

T-Pain has released several 1st official singles of his latest work “Revolver” stretching back to “Take Yo Shirt Off”, released in 2009. However they have all been dubbed promotional singles due to low chart position. The proper set up for this album looks to be impossible as he continued with 3 more Official 1st Singles “Reverse Cowgirl” (2010), “Rap Song” (2010), and “Best Love Song” ft. Chris Brown (2011) which all failed to create a buzz for the album. More recently, July 2011, the 5th dubbed promotional single Young Fyre produced “Booty Work (One Cheek At a Time)” was released, which was the first single I’ve known to get local radio play. Since its release “Booty Work” has managed to peak at #44 on the Hot 100 and #35 on the Hot Hip-hop and R&B charts, not much better then previous Official 1st/Promo singles. Fast forward 2 years after ‘take Yo Shirt Off” to the 6th single of the album “5 o’clock”, T-Pain’s sixth shot at launching promo for Revolver. Is this acceptable for such an established, and previously successful artist as T-Pain? Who is Really Ready for a T-Pain Comeback??
The Result: 5 O’clock ft. Wiz Khalifa, Lily Allen
“It’s five o’clock in the morning” Lily Allen sings/speaks resembling the voice on the fancy speaking alarm clock my mom owned when I was younger. Already the song has unique feel to it due to the genius of T-Pain’s production. He finds a way to incorporate such a soothing voice with a synthesized harmonies and a R&B beat creating, A Beautiful Outcome!! The video keeps up with the song, taking you on journey as T-Pain wanders the streets alone searching for his love interest. While Lily Allen remains indoors appearing distraught, anxiously awaiting his arrival. T-Pain & Wiz Run In. The two nicely dressed men, in Winter apparel and Jay’s to match, bump each other causing T-Pain to drop his transparent iPhone which displayed a text from Lily. Wiz then runs through his verse while Pain runs the rest of the way home to find Lily waiting for him in bed…..
Will This be Enough to Properly Launch Promo for Revolver??
Does DOA = Death of T-Pain’s Career?? What do you think?
Update: 5 o’clock has rose 5 slots on the chart, peaking at #20
