*In a recent interview with Billboard magazine, music legend Stevie Wonder praised Beyonce’s growth as an artist from her early beginnings as a member of Destiny’s Child to her successful solo career. Stevie and Beyonce have worked together on numerous projects, and he had plenty to say about the diva while speaking on the many talented artists in music biz today.
“There’s so many talented people out there. I’ve seen for instance, you know, Beyonce from the very beginning of her career when she was with a group and then her as a single artist. I’ve listened to the music mature and so now we have Lemonade, which is to me a great work. A great art piece.” Stevie went on to offer up a little advice to Beyoncé, suggesting that she make a slight adjustment to the availability of her song lyrics. “If I were to say anything to her I’d say, ‘look, why don’t you get the words written in braille so that every single person can read the lyrics of the music.’ It’d be great,” he told the outlet.
