Bikram Singh – “Beyonce”

Bhangra, F***ing Unclassifiable!!, Hindi, Hip Hop, Pop, R&B, RIP, UK Asian, USA

Score: 0.7

YouTube is a strange beast, with many quirks and foibles. The comments are usually ridiculous, occasionally hilarious and frequently more entertainment than the video itself. There are two dead giveaways, however, when it comes to “Beyonce” – the new track from Bikram Singh. Firstly, “Adding comments has been disabled for this video” (which is never a good sign). Secondly, the Likes/Dislikes ratio. Anytime it gets worse than 20%, it usually means that people really hate the song, the video or the artist. Here, it might just be the cheek of shamelessly naming your song “Beyonce.” So, you should know that Singh’s video is not faring well, at all. When a song inspires genuine hatred, we must ask why – here, the reasons present themselves immediately. Firstly, the video is tongue-in-cheek, sure, but it’s appallingly bad, with some poor models who will probably have their careers tainted for life. Secondly, the beat is ear-aching – considering Tigerstyle usually do a good job, this is a pure flop and shows up their recent arrogance (it comes across on Twitter more and more). The clashing melodies, the over-compression, the atonal quality of the synths – nothing works in the slightest. Lastly, Bikram Singh himself. He’s written a truly terrible song that probably worked well in his head… He runs out of breath halfway through the chorus; the Auto Tune is turned up to 11; he looks and sounds as if he’s literally going to ejaculate at certain points. Finally, calling the song “Beyonce” and trying to piggyback her fame is just a sin. It is doubtful that she’ll ever hear this (her “people” will rightly protect her from it), but if she does, she would have every right to slap two shades of shit out of Singh for pure outright defamation.
