Rap mogul Jay Z and wife Beyoncé Knowles-Carter are determined to make their "Drunk In Love" record a smash hit globally after teaming up and performing in London last night (February 28).
Footage of the super couple heating up a UK stage has started to make its rounds online.
Beyoncé touched down in London town on Friday and she brought her hubby along with her. Mrs. Carter was joined onstage by Jay Z during her first of six shows at O2 Arena. Following their Grammy performance last month, the superstar couple showed just how deep in love they are while performing their duet "Drunk in Love," which remains No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 this week. Jay marveled at his gorgeous wife, who stunned in a sparkly Vrettos Vrettakos catsuit. "Ladies and gentlemen, give it up for my man," Queen Bey told the crowd before giving him a hug. (Rap-Up)
Last month, Atlanta rapper T.I.'s unexpected "Drunk In Love" remix premiered across the Internet.
The remixes to Beyoncé and Jay Z's hit single 'Drunk In Love' have been coming in strong this past week and now Atlanta rapper T.I. adds his own sound to the Detail-produced track. The original version of the song appeared on Beyoncé's self-titled fifth studio album released in December of last year. "Handcuffs I'm no fan of those, but you ain't gonna need any hands at all" flows Tip over the now-changed instrumental. While Kanye West's version was where we first heard the 'Drunk In Love' instrumental being tweaked, this new remix from the Grand Hustle boss takes on a whole new EDM-influenced beat. (Direct Lyrics)
R&B singer The Weeknd celebrated his 24th birthday last month with a "Drunk In Love" remix.
The Detail produced 'Drunk In Love' by Beyonce has already gone places as far as popularity and radio spins are concerned. Now it's time for well established artists to take their shot at it. We heard Kanye on the official remix yesterday and today, it's none other than The Weeknd who puts his own drugged out spin on it. (HHNM)
On rap star Kanye West's revamped version, he spits x-rated bars to Queen Bey's buzzing record.
The track, which premiered on AngieReview.com, starts with a foreign wail, and a slightly reworked instrumental before Kanye spews his X-rated thoughts and inner-most desires. "You will never need another lover/ 'Cause you a MILF and I'm a motherf---er," West starts in a line that may or may not be a reference to fiancée Kim Kardashian. Yeezy continues to make a number of thinly veiled references to Kimmy. "If you aint on sight, you on skype/ I put you on a bike, you bound girl," he raps connecting the dots to his "Bound 2" music video, which featured himself and his bride-to-be simulating sex scenes while riding a motorcycle.
