A demo of Beyonce‘s “6 Inch” surfaced online over the weekend — a glimpse into how the Lemonade track came to be.

Over that spaghetti Western-inspired production, you hear featured artists The Weeknd and Belly test out verses about a woman who works hard for her money — what remains the song’s basic premise. What had yet to be added, though, was Bey’s soaring bridge about how this same woman is too smart to crave material things, a moment that raised the stakes even higher. Instead, the Weeknd sings a second verse and bridge that ultimately was cut, save for one line: “She already made enough but she’ll never leave.”
