My Featured Music Video: "LISTEN" [OST Dreamgirls] performed by BEYONCE KNOWLES

[video taken from YouTube.]

Hey Listen! It`s time for another "My Featured Music Video" post. It`s been a while since I last posted a post of this kind, so I just then decided to feature a music video which is far more than just ordinary than other music videos around. And guess what? This music video is not really just something... it`s more than that! Mind you, it`s worth watching and listening. So please LISTEN!

"LISTEN". This is "My Feature Music Video" for today. It`s a song performed by American R&B singer-songwriter, record producer, and Golden Globe nominated actress Beyonce Knowles who is better known as 'Beyonce'. Henry Krieger, Scott Cutler, Anne Preven, and Beyonce herself wrote the song which was produced by The Underdogs for the movie soundtrack of the 2006 musical film 'Dreamgirls'. "LISTEN" is actually one of the four new compositions that was written for the movie alone. The track was released as the lead single from the film`s soundtrack album.

If you may have noticed, there were actually two LISTEN`s music video that were made and used to promote the song. First is the music video which was released for the benefit of the movie, and second is a director`s cut wherein clips from the film were removed since it`s mainly for the reason of promoting the song alone. And obviously, I chose to feature the second one since I consider it more vivid and real [just hope you know what I mean] than the other one.

In the music video above, it shows Beyonce wearing a modern-day tank top, performing the song against a blank white background. And it`s quite amazing how the video had showed Beyonce`s versatility as a performer. Yes, she can sing, she can act, she can portray a role, she can dance, she can emote... I mean, she`s a total performer more than anyone could ask for a certain singer. A performer. A singer. An actress. A dancer. And most of all a model! Wow! Isn`t it amazing? Haha, consider these as my opinions and thoughts only, okay.

By the way, before I forget, I just want to inform those who are not yet informed that Beyonce had scored positive reviews for this music video especially with the track alone, and mostly `twas because of her vocal performance here.

Everything is still up to you... I mean, it would be you who would still be the judge at the end. So I just hope that somehow, your views would just be the same as mine. Haha.

Just enjoy watching the music video, and again please LISTEN!
