As Beyonce counts down to the “B-Day” of her future “Destiny’s Child,” she has dropped “Countdown” as the third single from her ‘4‘ album. When I first heard the album, I knew that this would most definitely be one of her singles. The lyrics are very clever and the hip-hop rhythm (which has a little bit of a “Jumpin, Jumpin” feel) is certainly in line with other tracks she ends up making singles as well. Here’s are the lyrics to the countdown within “Countdown”:
“My baby is a 10 / We dressing to the 9 / He pick me up we 8 / Make me feel so lucky / He kiss me in his 6 / We be making love at 5 / Still the one I do this 4 / I’m tryna make us 3 / From that 2 / He still the 1.”
If I were to say one thing I don’t like about this song, it’s that it’s not quite up beat enough to dance to because the chorus slows everything down, and it’s not quite a mellow song either. After “Run The World (Girls),” my second favorite song on the album is by far “End Of Time,” and really hope that will be her fourth single. I’ve include this song for you to listen to below in addition to “Countdown”.
