Beyonce – “Dreaming”
“If this is a dream, then I don’t want to know / Because I don’t want to be without you, babe,” sings Beyonce above a pulsing drum beat. The best line, though, is this slightly cocky/totally fierce lyric: “I never wished on a star when a star ain’t got nothing on me.”
Like many of the ballads on 4, Bey’s voice is the best thing about this by-the-numbers love song. Though we kind of dig the “Single Ladies”-type “oh, oh oh”‘s during the chorus, this bonus track is far from the best thing we never had on the US edition of the LP.
On a related note, Beyonce’s video for her single “Best Thing I Never Had” will premiere on Vevo.com tomorrow.
