For Your Pleasure: Beyonce’s ‘Drunk In Love’ Is Now a Serfbort-Ready Epic
Producer Detail expands Jay Z-assisted 'Beyoncé' single for Valentine's Day
“We be all night,” as unlikely schedule-wise as it may be for pop’s top power couple, is a line used by both Beyoncé and husband Jay Z on “Drunk in Love”, from her benevolently monarchical Beyoncé. The never-tired sex-in-the-kitchen jam’s life has been extended in a performance opening the 2014 Grammys and through creative cover versions by Future and Angel Haze. Noel “Detail” Fisher, who co-produced and helped write the track, now lengthens it more literally — both by warping it into a seven-minute orchestral odyssey and also by seizing on an outtake that he calls a “Whitney Houston, Bodyguard, ‘I Will Always Love You’ note” and surreally looping the looooooooove. Listen to his remix, posted by Complex (via The Fader), below.
Separately, Boots — the little-known Beyoncé muse/collaborator who also worked on “Drunk in Love” — has a new song of his own (via FACT). “When I’m with you / Who am I?” he sings on “Dust,” a hazy electro-R&B song you can easily imagine piqueing Mrs. Carter-Knowles’ interest. Especially after it unexpectedly changes directions, with lightly jazzy guitar chords and Boots’ appealing falsetto register, for the final minute or so. Scroll down to hear the track and check out its Cara Stricker-directed video. And sorry, French media: Still no sign of Bey and President Obama being secret valentines. Too late for Beyoncé-themed V-day dinner rezzies?
