Beyoncé Knowles had so much pent-up emotion while recording her new album that the singer is convinced she has made an angry girl power record.
According to Contactmusic.com, Knowles, who finished the recording just in two weeks, was so inspired by her character in her upcoming movie "Dreamgirls" that she cancelled her vacation. She did not let anyone at her record label know about it and rushed the recording, giving every track a sense of desperation and anger.
She says: "I had so many thing bottled up, so many emotions, so many things I wanted to say that while I was supposed to be on vacation, I snuck away to the studio and recorded this record in two weeks and that's why most of the records are so aggressive. It's the record that women need to hear."
She adds: "I'm screaming at the top of my lungs. I don't even scream but I had a lot to scream about. Women clean men up sometimes. They dress different, they learn a lot of things, they learn how to be a man and then if they dog you out and you move on and another woman just benefits (from) all those things.
"I'm saying, 'Ring the alarm, I've been through this too long, but I'll be damned if I see another chick on your arm.'"
