Beyoncé Samples Slick Rick and Doug E. Fresh on André 3000 Collaboration

Beyoncé and Slick Rick

Beyoncé is kicking it old school. The singing superstar pays homage to hip-hop legends Slick Rick and Doug E. Fresh on one of the records off her upcoming album 4.

“Party,” a collaboration with André 3000, reportedly samples “La Di Da Di,” the 1985 classic by the hip-hop pioneers. The original record contains the unmistakable lyrics, “La di da di, we like to party.”

Other samples on the June 28 release include Major Lazer’s “Pon de Floor” on lead single “Run the World (Girls)” and Boyz II Men’s slow jam “Uhh Ahh” on “Countdown.” OneRepublic frontman Ryan Tedder (“Halo”) recently revealed that he produced the career-defining “I Was Here” with hitmaker Diane Warren, while songwriters Ester Dean and Frank Ocean also confirmed that their contributions made the cut.

The deluxe tracklisting for 4 features six additional songs including “Lay Up Under Me,” “Schoolin’ Life,” “Dance for You,” and three dance remixes to “Run the World (Girls).”

    @rockwitu, Run the World is doing good around the world. It has already hit top 5 or top 10 in five or six countries. It’s top 15 cumulatively around the world. 1+1 wasn’t sent to radio she just performed it to show the album’s versatility and the new song has been out 2 days. Beyonce is trying to give people different music to listen to she’s not falling into Europop. Please with the way that all musicians get inspiration and copy something that was done before them. Beyonce isn’t the only one to draw inspiration. People trip me out with that bullshit claim when most movies are the same storyline or remakes of previous movies.I guess you think people shouldn’t make Batman movies anymore because it’s already been done.

    3 solo albums, 16 Grammys, 7 films with one more on the way, married to jay z (founder of Roc Nation who MANAGES Rihanna), business woman and Billboard Artist of the Millenium?
    A flop?

    Even without a number 1 she is STILL one of the most influential artists/entertainers that this world has seen. If anything that just goes to show how anti-flop she is.

    When PITBULL is making his way to number 1 right now, i know youre not foolish enough to say that chart positions always = talent.

    I love it Beyonce is trying to give homage to the black legends from the 80s and 90s. She’s always been good about making sure black legends are remembered. Please Run The World is doing good around the world. Americans to stuck on Europop. 1+1 was classic soul. The song wasn’t even sent to radio. She just wanted to perform because she love the song and show the versality of the album. The new song just came out. No performance, no video, no major airplay yet, etc..Beyonce is real talented and people need to give her, her props for once.

  21. Drake&CiaraFan

    Why did she broadcast that she sampled this after everything she’s been accused of?.
    I honestly think she should have pushed the album back.
    Run the World is okay, but it wasnt received like her last songs, and after receiving two major performances, it peaked at 29.
    1+1 is boring, it peaked at 57. It was promo, so that was okay, but an artist like her should have higher charting promos.
    Her second single, “Best Thing I Never Had”, is at 75 on iTunes and is about to do worse than 1+1.

    I dont get why she is as successful as she used to be. Her songs are good, but just not as catchy anymore. There no longer one of the best things out there.

    She should have pushed the album back, It is not going to sell as high as her first three, maybe 200k
    She just doesnt have her usual buzz.

    “Run the World” – peaked at 29
    “1+1″ (promo) – 57
    “Best Thing I Never Had” – 70-85 on the Hot 100 next week.

    I think its because she took a break. Artists just dont see as good of success after it:
    Ciara- took three years to release third album
    Kelly Rowland- Took three years to come out with first single from third lp
    Maybe B can do it, because like Ci and Kelly, she has talent.

    shaniqua Reply:

    @Drake&CiaraFan, if you think about beyonce songs don’t really debut high on the charts. but they eventually reach at least the top 20. i don’t think rtw will get any higher than 25 but if best thing i never had gets a good amount of promotion and radio play and if she releases a video by the end of this month then i think the song will manage to break into the top 20 at least. its more radio friendly than rtw

    [Reply]

    Drake&CiaraFan Reply:

    @shaniqua,

    I definately agree.But Beyonce singles debut low based on airplay, which is how singles ladies and boy debuted at 70 and 100, respectively. But shes used to making huge jumps or strong debutes with digital singles that precede an albums release. Plus, thats why I said a pushback, because Best Thing I Never Had is good, it just needs time to grow, it could be like “Halo.”

    She needs to realize that she should release the album when the time is right for her. I dont kni=ow why, but this project seems rushed. IASF was just so much more anticipated

    Mark my words. This Album will be the top sellin female R&B album of all time.

    @Loathe, You are talking it way too far. It’s not gonna be the top sellin female R&B album of all time. Stop being delusional. Beyonce’s latest singles aren’t doing becoming big hits, that is a fact. Except it.

    Her albums sales should be fine though. I predict 300k at most. Depending on promo.

    I really think Beyonce just really won over the whole urban community by not following the Euro pop trend. Despite what people are saying I dont think this album will flop, Big name urban celebs always enjoy nice first week sales especially if they stick with the urban music. They really dont need top 10 hits. If the music is good they will buy. Case in Point Mary J. Blige, Alicia Keys, and Usher. All of there first singles didnt even crack the top 20 but yet they still sold 300,000+ on the first week. Even if Bey doesnt hit 1 million her name alone with a top 40 single will get her 350,000 first week and the number 1 spot. Beyonce has amazing staying power and she also sales well over the holidays. It may not top IASF sales but I have confidence that it will make double platinum.

    The only reason people are holding Beyonce to such a higher standard because people consider her to be a living legend.

    You never hear people say Kanye, Usher, or Chris Brown as living legends so it’s really not fair to compare them to B.

    A living legend should deliver legendary material.

    I blame the stans (not the fans) because they continuously put other artists down to hold her up. I’m really not sure why, but to each his own.

    Tricia Reply:

    @chris, That’s all it is talk. The majority of major songwriters and producers have said that Beyonce contributes to the writing process of her album. You act like nobody in the industry could lie on her. Beyonce is one of the most beloved people in the music industry. She got legends to her peers always giving her praise. Do you think that these people wouldn’t really know what she is like. It’s amazing Beyonce will tell people where she got inspiration from like she talked Josephine Baker a lot when she did Deja Vu.She’s trying to keep many black people’s memories alive through her work, and she sits up here and gets dogged. All the males acts basically do an imitation of MJ. Yet it’s cool. Gaga can copy Madonna’s looks, ideas and melodies. It’s alright, though, because I guess she’s white. It’s a video of Bob Fosse doing some dance moves before MJ did them. MJ incorporated it into his dance moves. All the greats have been inspired by others.

    I’m buying Bey’s album cos I respect anybody who is trying to return to their urban roots and 1+1 is an R&B jam. Yes, the sales will fall, but the reason most artists go POP is to sell more. So of course if they come back to R&B, they will sell less. Whitney Houston’s I’m Your Baby Tonight album sold less than her first two simply because it was produced by Babyface and had an R&B sound that the POP audience was not used to. But, the album is a favorite amongst the urbanites. Go Bey, I’m hanging in cos I’m tired of the POP shit.

    Beyonce’s “4″ will be as musically inclined, as artistically challenged as, and as mind blowing as Yeezy’s “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy”

    I’m really interested with how this album will sound. Especially excited for “I Was Here”. I don’t like the idea of including 3 remixes of Run The World though, just ’cause I don’t like the song. I love “1+1″ and “Best Thing I Never Had”.

    From what I’ve heard thus far, this album is all over the place. Nothing has gelled together IMO. All the songs sound recycled.

    Well I hate the sample to be honest, but I can see this being the 4′s albums version of: Diva.

    Just the way she acts/sings in the song. Diva didn’t do well but it had a catchy beat and was a pretty good song, anyway i’m looking forward to it, and as it’s the only duet featured on the album it’s probably gonna be killer.

    Ya’ll too obssessed with record sales and shit, does that matter for her? NOPE she already on her way to BILLIONS, where as Gaga is in DEBT LOL, and Riri can’t even shift concert tickets so she has to pay for them herself #ohlord. Wait for the VMA/EMA/GRAMMIES and you’ll see Bey kicking these bitches to the curb. Not to mention once she starts hitting the stages @ Glastonbury/Oxygen/GMA etc.

    RUN THE WORLD!”

    LOL NO thanks. There’s enough of you followers on the floor already. No need to add another one to the bunch. But thanks for th invite.

    I only bow down to God because HE is the highest of high’s, the Kings of Kings and the LORD of LORDS. HE MADE BEYONCE, so if I’ll be giving praise it’ll be to HIM! Ya’ll stans entertain once again!

    It’s comments like this that make people visit these blogs. They just can’t believe the dumb sh*t ya’ll post. Bow down? Are you REALLY serious?I could see, give credit, show your love, but BOW DOWN??? LBVS

    Not even Beyonce would say some dumn sh*t like: BOW DOWN. girl/boy please. I see you tryna make people mad…but all you did was prove a point.

    Stans NEED somebody to follow. That’s why you want people to ‘bow down’ so much.

    rotmff

    bow down? yeah right. B got skills, but when I see her part a sea, or ressurect some dead people with her singing (which ain’t gon happen now matter HOW high ya’ll place her pedestal), I’ll THINK about it.

    Smoking kills brain cells. Leave the dummy pipe alone please.

    Hey Reply:

    @trina, Why are you so pressed?

    Beyonce does copy but she is WAY better than Keri Hilson. Keri Hilson is a bad performer, she never even had a platinum album. Don’t compare Keri to Bey.

  64. The-Music-Fan

    Unlike ALL you STANS, I am not going to JUMP to conclusions AND stamp this ALBUM as the ‘ALBUM of THE YEAR’ quite yet. The new material Beyonce has released thus far has been…what’s the word I’m looking for? Amateur! I am a big Beyonce fan BUT we all know she can do better then what’s been put out. I think she was trying to go for a more indie inspired sort of album & didn’t know how to exactly create that sort of sound, so she stuck to what was safe. Basic R&B (1+1 & Best I Never Had) & a overused beat that has been sampled by the entire industry (Girls WHO run the WORLD). I am excited to hear ‘Party’ & the tracks penned by Ester Dean & Frank Ocean BECAUSE if they couldn’t save this ALBUM then we may have a POSSIBLE flop on our hands. I’m just calling it what IT is. It’s not about having the best Euro-Pop track or some overly produced dance track to top the charts. It’s all about Originality. Ask Adele! Shes topping the charts! ;-)
    So Best wishes to Beyonce, I’ll be buying the ALBUM with hopes that I will hear better tracks then what i’ve heard thus far…

    Beyonce is the Queen and some people are always going to claim that she’s a thief because she samples other people’s music and to me if that was the case then 96.9% of the artists out today will be titled a thief. I love this new era of Beyonce and I can’t wait for the album to drop “June 28″!!!!! (P.S “If you don’t like the B-Revolution then you are a non mother freaking solution”)

    People have been waiting 15years to see Bey FLOP and they think they the day is has finally arrived.

    When you reach a level of success you play by your own rules. Bey isnt getting number ones so far this era, yet she is the ONLY female in the game that will still sell out tours, give the best live performances, sell albums, win awards, make her movies AND headline festivals.

    And please dont forget that she is married to Jay (the founder of Roc Nation)…you know the little company that manages Rihanna? So Bey will never be begging bread. Put your hate into perspective.

    Heard the whole 12 song album, very disappointed. Fans will buy it though, just to have her full collection, but if not a full-fledged fan, I’d advise you to spend it on another CD. There is one very good song, ‘Rather Die Young’, the others are average to not so great. It’s her vocals, and her attempt to come off 80′s / 90′s R&B’ish actually turned out to be more ’80′s / 90′s POP’ish. If you’re from the eras you’ll understand this without even hearing it, but will understand it even more so once you’ve heard it. Better yet, it’s the cross over sound, not the true R&B that crossed over just for being so good, I mean the cross over sound, the one the record companies would force their artitst to use so that they would be accepted by the main stream audience. I think she really was not a true R&B fan growing up, she probably was a pop fan, because her music tends to go to that side of the line, all the time. She goes back to her urban roots, a little, for her dance tracks, usually, pulling a Mariah, to sell. However, here, the much younger generations will be fooled into thinking she’s going full r&b, when she really isn’t. It’s not a terrible thing, but it is disappointing, because she has fans from her DC days (the original 2 albums, that is) that want her to come back and show that side of her music again.
    That’s all.
