About No Angel

"No Angel" (stylized as "Angel") is a song by American singer Beyoncé from her self-titled fifth studio album (2013). It was written by James Fauntleroy, Caroline Polachek, and Beyoncé while the latter two and Boots also served as its producers. Polachek worked on several songs for the singer's album with her bandmate from Chairlift, Patrick Wimberly, before "No Angel" was included on the record. A chillwave midtempo song with elements of R&B, hip hop and trap music, "No Angel" features a minimalistic production and instrumentation consisting mostly of bass. Beyoncé uses a high vocal register, singing in falsetto with breathy vocals. Lyrically, the song features the protagonist declaring that neither she nor her love interest are perfect. "No Angel" received generally favorable reviews from contemporary music critics who praised its composition and the singer's vocal performance; however some of them criticized its placement on the album. A music video for the song was directed by @lilinternet and filmed in Houston, Texas as a tribute to the singer's hometown. It features various landscape shots of the city as well as close-ups of numerous people, including ten Houston-based rappers; Beyoncé also appears, dressed in white outside a dilapidated house in Melbourne, Australia. The clip received positive reviews from critics who praised the fact that it accurately captured Houston. At the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, Beyoncé performed "No Angel" live during a medley of songs from her fifth studio album.

Baby put your arms around me
Tell me I'm a problem
Know I'm not the girl you thought you knew and that you wanted
Underneath the pretty face is something complicated
I come with a side of trouble
But I know that's why you're staying

Because you're no angel either, baby
'Cause you're no angel either, baby

No I'm not an angel either but at least I'm trying
I know I drive you crazy, but would you rather that I be a machine
Who doesn't notice when you late or when you're lying
I love you even more than who I thought you were before

'Cause, you're, no, angel, either, baby
'Cause you're no angel either, baby
'Cause you're no angel either, baby
'Cause you're no angel either, baby, oh

Oh hmm, oh-oh-oh
Oh hmm, oh-oh-oh-oh-ooh-oh
Oh hmm, oh-oh-oh

Tell me, do you wanna ride? (Ride, ride, ride)
(Ride) Tell me, do you wanna to ride

(Ridin' around)
(Ridin' around)
(Ridin' around)
We ridin' around in that H-town

If there's candles near your bed, no need for the spell
Stop acting so scared, just do what I tell
First go through my legs, go back on your head
And whatever you want, yeah baby I'll bet it comes true

Baby put your arms around me
Tell me I'm a problem
Know I'm not the girl you thought you knew and that you wanted
Underneath the pretty face is something complicated
I come with a side of trouble, but I know that's why you're staying

Because, you're, no, angel, either, baby
'Cause you're no angel either, baby

You're no angel either, baby
No-no, no-no, noo, no-no, no-no, noo
No-no, no-no, noo, no-no, no-no, noo
No-no, no-no, noo, no-no, no-no, noo
No-no, no-no, noo

No-no, no-no, no-no, no-no, no-no, no-no, no-no
