About Radio

"Radio" is a song by American recording artist Beyoncé taken from her third studio album, I Am… Sasha Fierce (2008). The uptempo electropop/dance-pop song was composed by Beyoncé, Rico Love, Anton Bakholdin and Jim Jonsin. Composed in the key of D major and built essentially on bouncy beat, "Radio" also displays influences of the 1980s synthpop, Europop, and house. It is instrumentally complete with a Roland TR-808 drum, bass instruments, and synthesizers. The song's lyrics describe the love of Beyoncé in her childhood for the songs she used to listen on the radio as she grew into an adult. "Radio" received positive reviews from contemporary music critics, who generally praised Knowles's departure from her usual R&B style. Some of them also complimented the believability as well as the originality of the song and chose it as the standout track of I Am... Sasha Fierce. In September 2009, "Radio" was used to promote Dutch radio station Radio 538, and it subsequently charted for six weeks on the Dutch Top 40 chart, where it peaked at number 14. It also reached number five on its urban chart. "Radio" was part of Beyoncé's set list on her I Am... Tour (2009–10) and was included on the live album I Am... World Tour (2010).

I be on the hotline like everyday
Making sure the DJ know what I want him to play
You know I got my top back and my beat low
Rocking my stunner shades and turning up my radio
Turn up my radio

I think I'm in love with my radio
'Cause it never lets me down
And I fall in love with my stereo
Whenever I hear that sound
Whenever I hear that sound
Whenever I hear that sound

You're the only one that papa allowed to hang out in my room 
With the door closed, we'd be alone
And mama never freaked out when she heard it go boom
'Cause she knew we were in the zone

Hold him in my arms and look out of my window
(Under the moonlight)
And he'd be keeping me close, so I'd never let him go
He's got a place in my heart

I think I'm in love with my radio
'Cause it never lets me down
And I fall in love with my stereo
Whenever I hear that sound
Whenever I hear that sound
Whenever I hear that sound

When I get into my car, I turn it up
Then I hear vibrations all up in my trunk
And the bass line be rattling through my seats
Then that crazy feeling starts happening oh

I get butterflies when I hear the DJ
(Playing the stuff I like)
And I fall deeper in love with every song he plays
He's got a place in my heart

I think I'm in love with my radio (with my radio)
'Cause it never lets me down (no no no no no) 
And I fall in love with my stereo (with my stereo)
Whenever I hear that sound
Whenever I hear that sound
Whenever I hear that sound

I be on the hotline like everyday
Making sure the DJ know what I want him to play
You know I got my top back and my beat low
Rocking my stunner shades and turning up my radio
Turn up my radio

I think I'm in love with my radio
'Cause it never lets me down
And I fall in love with my stereo
Whenever I hear that sound
Whenever I hear that sound
Whenever I hear that sound
