Hear Beyonce’s Full, Smoldering ‘Standing on the Sun’
Song withheld from 'Beyoncé' album originally teased in H&M ad
UPDATE: It’s gone.
We were teased with Beyoncé’s “Standing on the Sun” via an H&M commercial about a year ago. Now fans can finally hear the kinda tropical, kinda Knife-y, totally smoldering song in full below, as long as the leak stays live, at least. Top-quality hit-makers Sia and Greg Kurstin (the Bird & the Bee) co-wrote the track, which also bears some melodic resemblance to Frank Ocean circa Nostalgia, ULTRA. At four minutes, it’s a generous dose of Queen Bey, who also gifts us with a short rap verse that wouldn’t sound out of place on her excellent Beyoncé album. She and hubby Jay Z are “on the run” this summer.
