With house remixes of Beyonce’s “Best Thing I Never Had” currently heating up dancefloors around the world, it was only a matter of time before a canny MC molded the break-up anthem into an urban club-banger. You can now get crunk to the pulsating diva’s current top 20 hit courtesy of Lil Jon and DJ Kontrol. Their version features fat beats and a rap by rising star Shawty Putt. It’s probably not what the Roseland Ballroom performer had in mind when she recorded the Babyface-penned ballad, but we like it. Drop it low to Bey’s latest after the jump.
