While most of the world is busily protest­ing Trump, Brexit, sex­ism, poverty etc, Queen Bey and hubby have set their sights higher, turn­ing their col­lec­tive wrath on the art world. They do have a point. The Lou­vre, where they filmed their Apeshit video, is an ex­ceed­ingly white do­main. Other timely top­ics they tackle across 10 tracks in­clude fame (Friends), out­door sex (Sum­mer) and African-Amer­i­can his­tory (Black Ef­fect). If this was an al­bum by un­knowns it might garner ac­claim as a cool, un­der­ground at­tempt at sub­ver­sion. Com­ing from two of the big­gest names in the business it screams van­ity project, es­pe­cially con­sid­er­ing how re­lent­lessly stri­dent it is. Bring back Crazy In Love, Mrs Carter!
