Beyonce’s “Pretty Hurts” Gets A Gorgeous Orchestral Remix From Monsieur Adi: Listen

Beyonce and Monsieur Adi are a match made in musical heaven. The French producer, who served as the official DJ for the European leg of The Mrs. Carter Show world tour, previously the weave-whipping diva’s “XO” and “Blow” euphoric electro-house overhauls but he takes a very different approach with “Pretty Hurts”, which was serviced to radio as the official third single from Bey’s visual album yesterday (June 10).

Instead of ramping up the BPM, Monsieur Adi completely reworks “Pretty Hurts” into an orchestral ballad that not only showcases Beyonce’s heavenly vocals but also allows the Sia-penned ballad’s inspirational message to remain intact. It’s tasteful, moving and incredibly well-executed. Grab a lighter (or something else to wave in the air) and listen after the jump. More »

Beyonce’s ‘June Birthday Playlist’ Includes Songs From Prince, Iggy Azalea & Lana Del Rey

Beyonce can literally do anything — release a blockbuster album in the middle of the night, watch her sister beat the crap out of her husband without blinking an eyelid and put together the perfect YouTube playlist. The queen of all musical genres surprised fans by posting a ‘June Birthday Playlist’ on her website dedicated to “the great musical talents born in the month of June!” And her selections can’t be faulted.

Queen Bey kicks off the playlist with a little Prince (“Breakfast Can Wait”) before transitioning into Iggy Azalea‘s “Fancy”, the first of two songs from the Aussie rap diva. There are a couple of surprises in there — Boy George‘s “Live My Life” and Robyn‘s “Dancing On My Own” — but the majority of the songs are from hip-hop/R&B heavyweights like Ice Cube, 2Pac and Kendrick Lamar. Oh and Lana Del Rey‘s “West Coast” gets some well-deserved love as does Solange‘s excellent “Lovers In The Parking Lot”. Watch Bey’s tasteful tribute after the jump. More »

Destiny’s Child Reunite On The Set Of Michelle Williams’ “Say Yes” Music Video: Get A First Look

Destiny's Child Reunites!
Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams, together known as Destiny’s Child, have regrouped for the first time since their powerhouse performance at the Super Bowl on the set of the video for Michelle’s urban gospel banger, “Say Yes.”

Although the video shoot was supposed to be a surprise — one might even say it was Unexpected — fans and paparazzi alike were quick to track down the trio during the shoot last month. After all, when you’ve got the ladies of DC3 all together in one room, it’s all but impossible not to get the entire world shaking and crying.

“We heard all this commotion going on while we were filming. We filmed at somebody’s house and they probably got excited and called their cousins and friends and, next thing you know, the whole town was on one street,” Michelle revealed to The Hollywood Reporter.

Check out the first professional still from the video shoot above. More »
