Beyoncé Readying ‘Bow Down/I Been On’ Remix with Houston Rappers?

Beyoncé

Beyoncé pays homage to her Houston roots on “Bow Down/I Been On,” and now she’s reportedly taking it to the next level with a remix featuring some H-town rap all-stars.

According to local Fox reporter Isiah Carey (via HHNM), the Texas gal has been quietly working on a remix to the much-talked-about record, which she released last weekend.

An “internationally known rapper” tipped off the reporter, telling him that the remix will feature H-town’s own Slim Thug, Willie D, Scarface, Bun B, Kirko Bangz, and Lil’ Keke.

He decided to blow the whistle after photos from studio sessions surfaced online.

Beyoncé shouts out some of Houston’s finest on the chopped and screwed record. “Shout out to Willie D. I was in that Willie D video when I was about 14, looking crazy,” she says. “Shout out to Pimp C. You know we used to sneak and listen to that UGK.”

Are you excited to hear an H-town remix to “Bow Down/I Been On”?

    @Gruuuga,
    I guess I understand why everybody is trippin about this song cuz they hold Bey to a high standard. But truly.. Cant a girl get cocky with it?
    A LOT of stupid people are taking it literal.. like shes telling everybody to bow down… umm no imma need you to expand your braind and stop being single minded!
    I feel like this song is totally aimed at her haters… I do believe she is for female unity.. BUT not if you’re a hater! Think about it. So I feel like she is telling females who don’t support unity.. to bow down (side-eyes keyshia)
    The song in my eyes is fun.. it completely out of Beys comfort level.. current with the music scene and ALSO current with the latest cocky music bravado that new artists have been bringing!
    The truth is … if a dude had done this song.. nobody would have been tripping . Bey has been humble for far too long and I think its well deserved for her to have fun be cocky and tell these haters… bow down bitches (woman AND men!)
    My two cents!:)

    @Gruuuga,look. Beyonce is a soon to be legend. She didn’t have to put this trash out its a complete left from who she is as a person. Beyonce has been giving us ratchet since “Kitty Kat” (which is my shit by the way). Still, this is something you expect from Rihanna not Beyonce. Beyonce is CLASSIC, BUT she is still human. Everything she puts out isn’t going to be great. Yes, she can get cocky, but tracks like “Diva” and “Ego” had more of a grown woman and classy appeal to it. This is down right garbage. Not b/c it’s her getting hood, but the whole thing SOUNDS BAD! I miss “Deja Vu” Beyonce. The Beyonce that made since. And nobody is going to tell me that “Bow Down” is good, b/c its not. An everyone knows that.

    @Secylove, She ain’t trying to get no street cred, this is not Britney Spears we’re talking about here but BEYONCE, unless you only know of her top 40 records, you’ll notice that Bow Down/I Been On is NOT the only ‘hood’ record she’s put out. Diva, Soldier, Video Phone, Upgrade U… Plus this is not an official record and she’s allowed to have some fun!

    @Secylove, Beyonce was only upper middle class until she was about 12-13. Matt & Tina were struggling for a while and even separated because Matt quit his job to manage the girls full time. They were living modestly during this period with just Solange and Beyonce with Tina.

    And implying that being rich means you have no knowledge of the hood is ludicrous because a good amount of the hood is fueled on black culture. I’ve lived in the south all my life and every hood rat didn’t come up in the projects. Believe that.

    @Kush, Ego Remix Ft. Kanye? Check On it Ft. Slim Thug & Bun B? Rihanna has stated she wants a career like Beyonce, she has stated if she could be anyone in the world it’d be Blue Ivy, and she works for Bey’s husband, meaning if Bey wanted one of her songs or to end her career it’d happen very easily and quickly (ex. Keri Hilson). Bey has always been low key hood, this is nothing new…she is comfortable with herself and having fun.

    @OH, Lmao. How laughable to try & say Beyoncé would ever need to try & copy Rihanna. Beyoncé can actually sing. Rihanna has never been on Bey’s level. That two dollar coke hoe has been sniffing round Beyoncé’s collaborators since she sold out on dancehall. Sean Paul, Jay-Z, JT to name a few. Bow Down was written for imposter bitches like Rihanna. What crown would sit on that head; she can stay in the jester’s hat.

    @Diego, Just to let you know being hood is not necessarily about your surroundings & how you grew up. It’s not like she said in the track I came from nothing to something, etc. It’s about the feel of the the track…listen to the instrumental & you will understand, you can’t sing butterflies, rainbows & sunshine over this hard ass beat. But if you were a musician you would understand this…smh!

    [Reply]

  38. Teesoup

    It was meant to be controversial; the way she and the recording label wanted it to be. She’s no fool and she knows this song won’t be a number one hit, but it is just a song to get people going and to keep them talking about the illuminati and satan worshipping crap. The song is not unusual, but it is sort of young for Beyonce. I thought by this point she would not have to make songs like this. I hope she’s not running out of ideas. As we know the fame went to her head over a decade ago.
