Beyonce’s “Standing On The Sun (Mr. Vegas Remix)” Is Here: Listen To The Finished Studio Version
While most of the Hive is furiously pussy popping to new club bangers “7/11” and “Ring Off”, the third new (but not really, at all) cut on the Platinum edition of Beyonce‘s pioneering visual album also surfaced online. If you can believe it or not, we finally have a finished studio version of “Standing On The Sun”. Unfortunately, it’s the Mr. Vegas remix that leaked more than a year ago — Bey can be so petty — but it’s been cleaned up a bit since then.
As much as I love the reggae-flavored overhaul, it doesn’t come close to the original. The Sia-penned, Greg Kurstin-produced anthem is the number one single/signature song that Beyonce couldn’t be bothered to release. That decision is still hard to fathom but at least the euphoric anthem is now officially part of the diva’s discography. Albeit in a somewhat diluted capacity. Listen to the studio version of “Standing On The Sun (Remix)” after the jump.
