About I Care

"I Care" is a song recorded by the American singer Beyoncé for her fourth studio album, 4 (2011). It was written by Jeff Bhasker, Chad Hugo and Beyoncé and produced by Bhasker and co-produced by Beyoncé with Hugo playing rhythm guitar. The song was recorded at the MSR Studios and was mixed by Jordan Young aka DJ Swivel at KMA Studio in New York City. "I Care" is an R&B power ballad, which also contains elements of soul music and rock music. Built on a hand-clapped rhythm and pulsating beats, the song's instrumentation consists of screeching guitars, low-profile synthesizers, pounding drums, heavy percussion instrument and a piano. In "I Care", Beyoncé admits her vulnerability to her indifferent love interest with both honesty and power. She sings with heartfelt emotion over cooing background vocals and scats alongside a multi-octave guitar solo towards the end of the song. "I Care" was sent to contemporary hit radio in Italy on March 23, 2012 as the seventh overall single from 4. "I Care" was acclaimed by contemporary music critics who highlighted the heartfelt emotion, sadness and resentment with which Beyoncé sings. Critics also complimented the way she made effective use out the power in her lower register in the first and second verses until her voice slowly builds until the commanding chorus is reached. They generally praised the guitar solo and the vocal power of Beyoncé which was displayed by "I Care" among other songs on 4. Following the release of 4 in early July 2011, "I Care" charted number 35 on the South Korea Gaon International Singles Chart, based on downloads alone. The song was part of Beyoncé's set list for her revues 4 Intimate Nights with Beyoncé (2011) and Revel Presents: Beyoncé Live (2012) as well as The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour (2013). It was also used as an interlude in her The Formation World Tour (2016).

I told you how you hurt me, baby
But you don't care
Now I'm crying and deserted, baby
But you don't care

Ain't nobody tell me this is love
But you're immune to all my pain
I need you to tell me this is love
You don't care well that's okay

Well, I care
I know you don't care too much
But I still care (La la la la la la la la la la la la)
Oh, I care
I know you don't care too much
But I still care (La la la la la la la la la la la la)

Ever since you knew your power
You made my cry
And now every time our love goes sour
You won't sympathize

You see these tears falling down to my ears
I swear you like when I'm in pain, yeah
I try to tell you all my fears, huh
You still don't care, that's okay

Well, I care
I know you don't care too much
But I still care (La la la la la la la la la la la la)
Oh, I care
I know you don't care too much
But I still care (La la la la la la la la la la la la)

Boy, maybe if you cared enough
I wouldn't have to care so much
What happened to our trust?
Now you just given up
You used to be so in love
Now you don't care no more

Well, I care
I know you don't care too much
But I still care (La la la la la la la la la la la la)
Oh, I care
I know you don't care too much
But I still care (La la la la la la la la la la la la)

I still care (La la la la la la la la la la la la)

I still care (La la la la la la la la la la la la)

I still care (La la la la la la la la la la la la)

I still care (La la la la la la la la la la la la)
