"Halo" is a song performed by American singer Beyoncé from her third studio album I Am... Sasha Fierce (2008). Included on the I Am... disc, it was intended to give a behind-the-scenes glimpse of Beyoncé's life, stripped of her make-up and celebrity trappings. Columbia Records released the song, the album's fourth single, to mainstream radio in the United States on January 20, 2009, and to international markets from February 20. "Halo" was composed by Ryan Tedder, Evan Bogart and Beyoncé. It was conceived by Tedder specifically for Beyoncé, although there was media speculation that it had been originally written for Leona Lewis.

  • "Halo" is a song performed by American singer BeyoncĂ© from her third studio album I Am... Sasha Fierce (2008). Included on the I Am... disc, it was intended to give a behind-the-scenes glimpse of BeyoncĂ©'s life, stripped of her make-up and celebrity trappings. Columbia Records released the song, the album's fourth single, to mainstream radio in the United States on January 20, 2009, and to international markets from February 20. "Halo" was composed by Ryan Tedder, Evan Bogart and BeyoncĂ©. It was conceived by Tedder specifically for BeyoncĂ©, although there was media speculation that it had been originally written for Leona Lewis. "Halo" is a contemporary R&B power ballad whose lyrics describe a sublime love. It features drum, piano, keyboard, string, synthesizer, and percussion instrumentation. Kelly Clarkson claimed that Tedder reused the musical arrangement in her 2009 song "Already Gone". "Halo" received acclaim from music critics, who made comparisons with Lewis' 2007 song "Bleeding Love". Its production and BeyoncĂ©'s emotional vocals also received critical praise. "Halo" was nominated for Record of the Year and won Best Female Pop Vocal Performance at the 52nd Grammy Awards. It won Best Song at the 2009 MTV Europe Music Awards. "Halo" topped the singles charts of Brazil, Norway and Slovakia, and reached the top five on the singles chart of Australia, Germany, Ireland, Italy, New Zealand, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the US. It was certified quintuple-platinum in Australia, and double-platinum in New Zealand, Spain and the US. Philip Andelman directed the ballad's music video, which features American actor Michael Ealy. It portrays a romantic relationship between BeyoncĂ©'s and Ealy's characters. Critics complimented BeyoncĂ©'s looks in the clip. An alternative music video, which shows Ealy's character being chased by police through a forest at night, was posted on the Internet in May 2010. The lyrics to "Halo" were changed for two of BeyoncĂ©'s special live performances: in a tribute to Michael Jackson following his death, and in a tribute to the victims of the 2010 Haiti earthquake. The song has been covered by many artists, including Florence and the Machine, LP, Harper Blynn, Gary Lightbody, and Westlife. It was performed on the television show Glee, and was added to the international soundtrack of the Brazilian soap opera India – A Love Story.
  • "Halo" Ă© uma canção gravada pela artista musical norte-americana BeyoncĂ© para o seu terceiro ĂĄlbum de estĂșdio I Am... Sasha Fierce (2008). Foi composta e produzida pela prĂłpria juntamente com Ryan Tedder, que contaram com o auxĂ­lio de E. Kidd Bogart na escrita. Inspirada pela canção "Shelter" (2004), de Ray LaMontagne, "Halo" foi concebida por Tedder especificamente para BeyoncĂ©, embora Simon Cowell tenha especulado que a obra seria destinada Ă  britĂąnica Leona Lewis, que acabou por recusĂĄ-la. A sua gravação decorreu em meados de 2008, nos estĂșdios Germano Studios e The Mic Studios, em Nova Iorque, e Manfield Studios, em Los Angeles, CalifĂłrnia. O tema foi enviado Ă s rĂĄdios norte-americanas em 20 de janeiro de 2009, atravĂ©s da editora discogrĂĄfica Columbia Records, sendo promovido como o quarto single do disco. Um mĂȘs depois, foi disponibilizado como download digital em vĂĄrios paĂ­ses, como AustrĂĄlia, Nova ZelĂąndia e CanadĂĄ. Mais tarde, foi editado como um extended play (EP) e como um pacote de remixes a partir da original. "Halo" Ă© classificada como uma balada pop e incorpora o trabalho de instrumentos de cordas, piano e sintetizadores em sua instrumentação. Liricamente, descreve um romance sublime. A obra recebeu anĂĄlises positivas dos profissionais especializados em mĂșsica, que elogiaram a entrega vocal da artista e compararam-na a "Bleeding Love" (2007), de Lewis. No campo comercial, o single obteve um desempenho favorĂĄvel, tendo atingido os cinco melhores lugares na AustrĂĄlia, Alemanha, Suíça e Reino Unido. Nos Estados Unidos, conseguiu o quinto posto da Billboard Hot 100, acompanhado pelos primeiro e segundo lugares na Hot Dance Club Songs e Pop Songs, respectivamente. A obra liderou as tabelas da Noruega, da EslovĂĄquia e do Brasil, tornando-se, neste Ășltimo, a mais tocada ao longo de 2009 nas rĂĄdios nacionais, bem como a mais bem-sucedida em vendas digitais. O vĂ­deo musical correspondente, que conta com a participação do ator norte-americano Michael Ealy, foi dirigido por Philip Andelman e estreou em dezembro de 2008, atravĂ©s da iTunes Store. A trama retrata o relacionamento harmonioso e romĂąntico entre os personagens de Ealy e BeyoncĂ©. Os crĂ­ticos elogiaram a produção, enfatizando o olhar da cantora no decorrer da gravação. Uma outra vertente do teledisco foi lançado em maio de 2010 e mostra Michael a fugir de policiais por um floresta, Ă  noite. A letra da canção foi alterada duas vezes em duas apresentaçÔes ao vivo feitas por Knowles; em homenagem ao cantor Michael Jackson apĂłs a sua morte e em um tributo feito Ă s vĂ­timas do Sismo do Haiti de 2010. "Halo" foi regravado por vĂĄrios cantores, inclusive por Florence Welch e pelo grupo Westlife, alĂ©m de ter sido utilizada na trilha sonora da telenovela brasileira Caminho das Índias (2009).

  • Halo est une chanson enregistrĂ©e par la chanteuse de R'n'B amĂ©ricaine BeyoncĂ© Knowles. Elle a Ă©tĂ© composĂ©e par Ryan Tedder, Evan Bogart et Knowles pour le troisiĂšme album studio de cette derniĂšre, I Am... Sasha Fierce, sorti en 2008. Le single, sorti le 20 janvier 2009, est le quatriĂšme extrait de l'album aux États-Unis, et le troisiĂšme dans le reste du monde. La chanson, initialement Ă©crite pour Knowles, a fait objet de rumeurs selon lesquelles elle a Ă©tĂ© offerte par la suite Ă  Leona Lewis. Kelly Clarkson, qui a travaillĂ© avec Tedder, a en outre reprochĂ© Ă  ce dernier d'utiliser le mĂȘme arrangement musical que celui de Halo sur sa chanson Already Gone, sortie en 2009. Bien accueillie par les critiques de pop contemporaine, la chanson est modifiĂ©e Ă  deux reprises, une fois pour rendre hommage Ă  Michael Jackson aprĂšs sa mort, et une deuxiĂšme fois en mĂ©moire des victimes du sĂ©isme de 2010 Ă  HaĂŻti : BeyoncĂ© interprĂšte Halo lors de l'Ă©mission tĂ©lĂ©visĂ©e Hope for Haiti Now: A Global Benefit for Earthquake Relief, accompagnĂ©e de Chris Martin (Coldplay) au piano. La chanson se classe en tĂȘte des hit-parades au BrĂ©sil, en NorvĂšge et en Slovaquie, et atteint le top cinq en Australie, au Canada, en RĂ©publique tchĂšque, en Allemagne, en Irlande, en Nouvelle-ZĂ©lande, en Espagne, en Suisse, au Royaume-Uni et enfin aux États-Unis. Halo remporte le prix de la « meilleure chanson » lors des MTV Europe Music Awards 2009, et le prix de la « meilleure performance vocale pop fĂ©minine » aux 52e Grammy Awards, oĂč elle est Ă©galement nommĂ©e dans la catĂ©gorie enregistrement de l'annĂ©e. Halo s'est Ă©coulĂ© Ă  7,5 millions d'exemplaires depuis sa sortie dont 2,3 millions en CorĂ©e (le 2e single le plus vendu de BeyoncĂ©, derriĂšre le single Ladies avec 8 millions)
