Here is another song by incomparable Beyonce, which serves as an opening single for her new studio album, entitled 4. It was written by Knowles in collaboration with Christopher Stewart and Terius Nash. The track was at first called “Nothing But Love” and was intended to be included into Beyonce’s sophomore studio album, entitled Love vs. Money. It is a downtempo R&B-soul romantic ballad about the power of love, the female protagonist’s emotional address to her beloved with an appeal to make love even when the world is at war.
The debut performance of the song took place on the 10th season of the American Idol show on 25 May, 2011. 1+1 debuted on the US Billboard Hot 100 and Canadian Hot 100 charts, where it occupied positions 57 and 82 respectively. We hope you will enjoy this low-key melodramatic ballad. Watch the 1+1 music video and skim over the lyrics below. Aren’t they beautiful?

Beyonce – 1+1 Song Words
If I aint got nothing, I got you
If I aint got something I don’t give a damn, cause I got it with you
I don’t know much about algebra, but I know one plus one equals two
And it’s me and you, that’s all we’ll have when the world is thru
Cause baby we aint got nothing without love
Darling you got enough for the both of us
So come on baby, make love to me
When my days look low, hold me in close and don’t let me go.
Make love to me. So that when the world’s at war, that our love heal us all
Right now baby make love to me…me…me…mee…mee…
ooh ooh make love to me
Hey! I don’t know much about guns but I…I’ve been shot by you
Hey! And I don’t know when I’m goin die, but I hope that I’m goin die by you
Hey! And I don’t know much about fighting, but I, I know I will fight for you
Hey! Just when I ball up my fist I realize that I’m laying right next to you
