I been on, I been on, I been on
Tell me who gon take me off
Take me off, take me off, take me off
Beyoncé has been on since 1998 when her group Destiny’s Child released their self-titled debut album Destiny’s Child. That’s a long time to be sittin' on the throne.
Albums with Destiny’s Child:
– Destiny’s Child (1998)
– The Writing’s on the Wall (1999)
– Survivor (2001)
– 8 Days of Christmas (2001)
– Destiny Fulfilled (2004)
– Dangerously in Love (2003)
– B'Day (2006)
– I Am… Sasha Fierce (2008)
– 4 (2011)
Here Beyonce is challenging anyone who is woman enough to take down a “King”. Who gon' stop her?
Also this a very clever subliminal shot at Keri Hilson. Beyonce is playing off Keri’s song “Turning Me On”, that’s why she is repeating “I been on”.
