Beyonce Country Controversy

Beyonce has become the first black woman to top Billboards Hot Country songs chart, after her track Texas Hold ‘Em.

many people upset by Beyonce playing “Country themed Pop”

Now for some reason many people have been associating country music as a “white music genre” witch is causing heaps of backlash on Beys new hit song with people even saying “she can’t have everything”(black artist going into country has always been made difficult even though it has never been a race exclusive “black folk have always made country music”). Now personally I believe this to be totally wrong, Texas Hold ‘Em is very much a country song sang by Beyonce who happens to be from Huston Texas, so pretty sure she knows what shes is singing about.

Its sometimes sad that people can’t just enjoy good music without finding some background issue now days.

UK’s party crowd switch to warehouse and home parties

Smaller clubs are losing out to mega raves, private events and even live streams, say music industry insiders.

The pandemic also changed peoples habits, and there is now a large group of young people who would rather stay in. “Instead of having club experiences, it was online, and people got used to live streaming at home,” says Paul Rose, DJ and host of the Not A Diving Podcast.

Many people feel drinks are far too expensive in establishments now; “they have pushed people beyond their limits in trying to have punters pay extortionate energy bills.

Even a six-pack from Tescos is creeping up to the prices pints were immediately before the pandemic.

Just vape weed instead now; it is cheaper, more chill, and you don’t end up in a gutter near a taxi rank with half-eaten kabab wrap. The entire nighttime economy is in a state of perpetual collapse.”-Top_To_Back, reddit.

There isn’t enough draw for clubs these days. The club scene is dead for a reason.

Music is hit and misses, emphasis on miss; drinks are far too expensive, venues are crumbling garbage piles with sticky floors and nowhere to socialize; the “third place” aspect of it is, as far as I can tell, non-existent, and of course the ever presence of dodgy wankers starting fights, or trying to finger you behind the bins.

Kids and young adults are broke, they don’t like alcohol as much as they used to, and they have better things to engage in. If they want to socialize, dance, get drunk, and have fun, the club should be the place to do that, but it just isn’t… it’s such a subpar experience that it’s not worth it. – Alundra828, reddit.
