# 60: Beyonce - Halo

So Simon wanted Halo for Leona, but she had no time to record it. Beyonce though, was just in time.

I really don't care if Leona got it instead of Beyonce, because the song itself is just so amazing. It's a very, very well-done, standard R&B ballad-type song, and it just so happened that one of the smoothest and most powerful voices now recorded it.

When I first heard the song, I thought it would be a really, really good song for JoJo. I'm not saying it just because I adore her, a song like this could prove a point, that she's not that 14 year-old who started out four years ago.

Anyway. Halo is a very heavy song, with heavy drums and lots of ins and outs but it's done beautifully.

It's probably one of the best in it's genre this year, I can see this covered countless times in the future.
