Fact: The greatness of "The Element of Freedom" is overshadowed by Alicia's "homewrecker" status

The album is phenomenal. Possibly one of the best of the last decade.

It's sold well, nothing compared to her previous albums in as much time, but one of the better songs has just been released as a single (Unthinkable).

I believe the sales and overall reception of the album would have been better received had she not got involved with a married man - Swizz Beatz. Why? Because females are the main ones to buy her music...heck, albums period. So many of them feel some kind of way against her and have refused to support her latest effort, which is quite a shame.

The ironic thing is that I don't think she would have crafted such a masterpiece had she not got involved with Mr. Beatz.

I definitely noticed ALOT of females speaking on it...whether they liked the album or not. Alot of chicks were either like "I don't like what Alica did, but the album is nice" or "I don't like what Alica did, so I will not listen to the album"

I agree, most people that I know were shocked when I even mentioned it.
I'm glad she isn't getting destroyed by the media, but I am hating on swizz beats getting her, I think he should get demolished by the media...

I dislike him...


But seriously I think with or without the "homewrecker" status she'd be in the same position as she's in now.
