my complicated relationship with beyonce has been heavily documented here and on every social media outlet i’m on, but i am stepping out on a limb and considering copping tix for the “on the run tour”. i’ve never seen her in concert before, so i thought this would be a great time since she just released an album full of songs i actually like. it is without contest that bey is a great performer. her husband put me to sleep at coachella 2010 and at ‘watch the throne’ tour, but who would pass up the chance to see them act like a married couple that has sex sometimes on stage?
not this chick.
as an only child i want everything my way, so today i’m posting my dream setlist from the carters. i saw miami’s alleged 42-song setlist, but a) i don’t trust the beyhive and b) beyonce is notorious for changing entire shows, so who knows what they’ll be doing by the time they hit the northeast. all i can do is hope that this list makes it to someone at parkwood. i’ve hyperlinked every song, so if you’re unfamiliar, you’re only one click away from your destiny.
jigga, my nigga
diamonds are forever
cant knock the hustle (bey on the chorus)
can i get a… (bey on amil’s verse)
i just wanna love you (give it to me)
show me what you got
soldier (bey’s verse)
bonnie & clyde
crazy in love
ring the alarm
venus vs mars (bey cooing on the chorus)
anything (the one from “kingdom come”)
dance for you
be with you
beach is better
party life (second verse)
ignorant shit (major pyro moment when jay says “bitch and a B”)
that’s my bitch
excuse me miss
that’s how you like it
on the run (part ii)
*editor’s note: majority of the list are songs i love, but some (“beach is better”, “countdown”) i added because they match the theme. also, jay-z is required to be on stage during bey’s thot set.
