    Question Beyonce - Ring The Alarm (Is She Talking About Rihanna?)

    August 10. Radio stations around the country are buzzing about Beyonce's latest single Ring The Alarm. But MediaTakeOut.com analyzed the song's lyrics and discovered that Beyonce appears to be sending a message to her rival Rihanna - to stay away from Jay Z.

    A few months ago MediaTakeOut.com first reported that Beyonce was uncomfortable with the amount of time Jay Z was spending with Rihanna. Since then, both Beyonce and Rihanna have gone out of their way to publicly deny feuding over the Def Jam president. But in Beyonce's latest single, she explicitly warns the teenage diva to steer clear of her man.

    In Ring the Alarm Beyonce sings about struggling with a cheating boyfriend. But Beyonce quickly turns her anger from her cheating boyfriend to the other woman. In the first recorded use of foul language by Beyonce, she sings "She's sold half a million - Gold, She don't love [you] - that sh@$ I know." Both of Rihanna's albums were certified gold (500,000 copies) in the U.S. - falling short of Beyonce's multi-platinum status.

    And this isn't the first time that Beyonce has used music to lash out against her rivals. After the very public break up of Destiny's Child, Beyonce (then a member of Destiny's Child) released the hit song Survivor - attacking her former group members. Among the lyrics were, "You thought that I'd be broke without you, but I'm richer" and "You thought I wouldn't sell without you, I sold 9 million."

    Below are the lyrics to Ring the Alarm.

    Ring the alarm
    I've been doin' this too long
    But I'll be damned if I see another chick on your arm

    Won't you ring the alarm
    I've been doin' this too long
    But I'll be damned if I see another chick on your arm

    [chorus]
    She gon' be rocking chinchilla coats
    if I let you go
    In the house up the coast
    if I let you go
    She gon' take everything I own
    if I let you go

    I can't let you go
    Damn if I let you go

    She gon' rock the VVS stones
    if I let you go
    In the 'Bach or the Rolls
    if I let you go
    She gon' pocket everything I don't
    if I let you go

    I can't let you go
    Damn if I let you go
    [chorus]

    Tell me how should I feel
    When I know what I know
    And my female intuition
    Telling me you a dog
    People told me bout the flames
    I couldn't see through the smoke
    When I need answers, accusations
    What you mean you gone choke?

    Oh. You can't stay you gotta go,
    And your other chick spending your do'
    This is taking a toll
    The way the story unfolds
    Not the picture perfect movie everyone would assume

    [chorus]

    Ring the alarm
    I've been doin' this too long
    But I'll be damned if I see another chick on your arm

    Won't you ring the alarm
    I've been doin' this too long
    But I'll be damned if I see another chick on your arm

    Tell me how should I feel
    When you made me belong
    And the thought of you just touching her
    Is what I hate most
    I don't want you but I want it and I can't let it go
    To know you give it to her like you gave it to me, come on

    She's sold half a million - Gold
    She don't love [you] - that sh@# I know
    I done put in a call
    Time to ring the alarm
    Cause you ain't never seen a fire like the one I'm gone cause

    [chorus]

    How can you look at me
    And not see all the things that I kept only just for you
    Why would you risk it baby, is that the price I done paid
    Cause this is my show and I won't let you go
    All its been paid for, and it's mine
    How could you look at me
    And not see all the things

    [chorus]

    LOL.

    Honestly, Rihanna aint got nothing to do with it. Like I said I heard the song like 2 weeks ago but the name of the person singing it wasnt mentioned. I only found out it was her when I was looking for ringtones yesterday.

    Beyonce better watch it, Jay probably already hit that. Free was pregnant for hi not to long ago.

    naw she ent tawking bout Robyn caw if she wanted da Jigga man Bey wouldn't have him rapping in her songs ....

    Robyn smarter than to let her man help out the competition.


    BTW I listened to it repeatedly and she has another flop song on her hand, her best bet is to leave this swiss beats song and release a pharell track. This beat is hot but the delivery is sh!te


    Now hows about the new outkast songs Hollywood Divorce is a BO$$$ song anyone heard it yet?
