Some consider this eponymous effort a game-changer, an audiovisual turning of the corner for Black American pop culture for women. Each of the 14 songs on the recording program corresponds a refined and lavish music video. The African-American superstar revisits different themes of the feminist condition in her own way, and generates new debates on feminism: autonomous woman, ambitious woman, conquering woman, sexual woman, seductive woman, dangerous woman, married woman, jealous woman and more. This epic enterprise required an army of songwriters, composers, performers, rappers and beatmakers — what we got here is the cornerstone in Beyoncé’s discography, and more.
