Is The Dream the new Beyonce? A day can’t go by without him dropping some new music, new collaboration, new news. Sheesh. First his Jay-Z featured single, “High Art.” Then his duet with Kelly Rowland on “Where Have You Been?” The R. Kelly-inspired “IV Play” adds a nice touch to roundup, and now the full length version of “Turnt” featuring Beyonce and 2 Chainz? Okay Nash, we see you.
Beyonce is in her Sophisti-ratchet glory on the track as she discloses her “Naughty Girl” tendencies:
“People think I’m crazy, but I love you cause you’re crazy too
Red light special, undress me under the candlelight
Turnt up in this business, watch me do all of them things you like
I’m ready to go, ready to blow like Grammy night in the back of that limousine
Billy Bob and Angeline”
I had no idea my life was missing until I heard this. Dear Summer, I beg of you, be kind.
2 Chainz adds a bit of his own “ratchetness” with his gasoline drenched, highly flammable 16 bars.
IV Play, in stores May 28. Are you ready?
