What would a Beyoncé and 2 Chainz collaboration sound like? We’ll soon find out as The-Dream has enlisted both for a song on his upcoming album.
The R&B queen and Atlanta rapper guest on “Turnt,” one of the star-studded cuts off IV Play, due May 28.
The-Dream originally recorded a duet with Beyoncé called “Fi (Fire),” but was unable to clear the Culture Club sample. So he crafted an all-new song and flew out to Europe to get B’s vocals.
“There was a clearance issue with the sample, so we’re gonna move her from one record to another that was just created,” he previously told Rap-Up.com.
In addition to B and 2 Chainz, IV Play features collaborations with Jay-Z (“High Art”), Kelly Rowland (“Where Have You Been”), Mary J. Blige (“Divine”), and Big Sean and Pusha T (“Pussy!”).
