Turnt

Beyoncé gets ratchet with The-Dream on “Turnt,” a record off his album IV Play (due May 28). A snippet of the sexy club banger has surfaced via iTunes and promises to show a more hood side of B.

“Beat it up till I blackout,” sings Blue Ivy’s mama, while declaring, “Turn up!”

Beyoncé was originally set to appear on another song on the album, but The-Dream wasn’t able to clear the sample. So he got some new vocals from her, added 2 Chainz, and made “Turnt.”
