Beyonce’s “7/11” & “Ring Off” Singles Are Now Here: Listen
Snippets of Beyonce‘s new singles (“7/11” and “Ring Off”) from her Platinum Edition Box Set have been circling the Internet for a few days now, but now the full versions have leaked! The 30-second clip of “7/11” was definitely not promising, and listening to the track in its entirety doesn’t make it any better. The try-hard, club-ready tune sounds like a demo found in the trash of the Unapologetic studio. Beyonce’s vocals are embarrassingly run through an autotune machine, as she talks about getting TURNT.
The better track is obviously “Ring Off,” which is a heartfelt tribute to her mother — Miss Tina Knowles. Beyonce sings about how she now understands her struggles of being in a failed marriage and all the sacrifices she made for her family. Now that she took that “ring off,” Tina is much happier and is enjoying live more than ever.
Ultimately, both tracks sound like throwaways without much thought to them. But hey — at least the #Beyhive get to fangirl over new music before the year’s end. Take a listen to both tracks over our friends at Spin! Look out for Beyonce’s box set on November 24.
