Flashback Friday: Bootylicious by Steele

I once read that Beyonce wrote the hook for this song, in which she accuses the listener of “not being ready for this jelly” after she put on a few pounds in her rear area, and then decided she was sexier that way. It’s a brilliant idea that I think many of us can relate to, especially the day after Thanksgiving – I doubt I’m the only one who feels a little more bootylicious today than usual. Thanks, Bey, for the empowering words.

I cannot end this without mentioning the cameo by MY PERSONAL HERO OMG STEVIE NICKS in the beginning of this video. Her 1981 song “Edge of Seventeen” provides the guitar sample on which this jam is based, so technically her presence isn’t completely random. But who are we kidding? It’s random as hell. We’re talking about a woman who basically lives in a castle overlooking the ocean and probably hasn’t been to a grocery store since 1973. She must have been pretty darn supportive of the Bootylicious philosophy to lend her stamp of approval.

And PS, yes, again you have to click through to YouTube. BUT IT’S WORTH IT.
