New Song: The-Dream – ‘Turnt (ft. Beyonce & 2 Chainz)’

Published: Tuesday 21st May 2013 by Sam

As anticipation for Beyonce‘s new album nears fever pitch, King B tides over her Hive with a guest spot on ‘Turnt’ – a new song on The-Dream‘s ‘IV Play’ album.

The gritty cut, which also features rapper 2 Chainz, is believed to be the next radio single from its parent album, which hits stores on May 28th.

Hear what the trio cooked up below…

We like.

By no means a “Beyonce ” tiered single, the singer’s verses enhance what is an otherwise solid R&B number. Indeed, there is an air of refreshing to her effortless and restrained delivery here. A “top down with the radio on” type cut if we’ve heard.

    Beyonce killed that right there! She sounds great ratchet too… Beat it up til she black out! Dam she must talk so dirty in that bed with Jay! Lucky man. Love this song.

    • Teflon Boy May 21, 2013

      I really like this and hats off to Bey because finally this is a track I can roll with…, I can’t stand the ‘hollering on every damn line coupled with dumb lyrics’ Beyonce that annoyingly has become her signature. IMhO Beyonce is at her very best when she is at her most conversationally lyrical and delivering a song in a conversational style as far as I’m concerned is where she shines brightest. She’s not really a balladeer when compared to the Mariahs and Whitney’s but the Video Phone style tracks are too basic for her talent…, for me it’s on songs like ‘Yes’, ‘Temptation’, ‘Confessions’, ‘Cater 2 U’, ‘She Can’t Love You’, ‘Is She The Reason’, ‘Cards Never Lie’…, the list goes on. THAT is when I freakin’ love Beyonce and have zero issue with her but Freekum’ Dress and the like have become her signature i.e. dumb female focused songs that paint her in the up-most best light. As a man I want to feel as though I’m not listening to music that is only designed for tampax adverts. I would love to hear a layered concept album from Beyonce where she is not afraid to cast herself in shades other than perfect.

      • KD May 21, 2013

        I feel you…The Writings on the Wall Beyonce was on point…I absolutely hate her female empowerment songs (i.e. Single Ladies/Girls/Grown Woman) and I don’t know why she insists on being the banner woman for female empowerment/emancipation…she should make songs that EVERYONE can appreciate.

      • yep! May 21, 2013

        yes you are 100% correct!!!

      • staph May 21, 2013

        Agree, listeners want to relate to her as a person. She is always doing the perfect routine you forget she might have struggles. I’m surprised no writer has penned a song about motherhood for her (something along the lines of Zion like Lauryn Hill did) but I digress. Hopefully, the album would be multi-layered concept.

      Wow… My friend Lnny has just married to a handsome wealthy black man. They met through ~~~ MìxedŚìngle.Çoм ~ ~~A Serious interracial dating is an ideal platform for afro romance for black & white singles.

  13. MyPenIzFresh May 21, 2013

    I really like this, this is more like ‘Love/Hate’ Dream, and I like hearing Beyonce on a more urban styled track. Her effortless harmonies are so on point!

    This is the kind of Dream I was looking for.. and a nice change of pace for Bey from the 4 era

  14. IStan4Music May 21, 2013

    Im in the middle of listening to it and im feeling it, yesssss bey! 🙂

  15. Navy Sailor May 21, 2013

    The phrases “Turn Up” and “ratchet” needs to be retired right now! But other than that, the song is hot! Me like!

    This song >>>>> the song with Kelly

    • MyPenIzFresh May 21, 2013

      yea the phrases are a bit dated.. but the style of this song is sick!

  16. fatusankoh May 21, 2013

  17. Lovebird May 21, 2013


    Why were you on Beyonce’s tumblr? I wouldn’t go there even if she had information on a new classified deadly virus.

  18. pat May 21, 2013

    hard time for her kind of music right now…r and b is not selling in numbers that’s expected for her….the lablel thought GROWN WOMAN was gonna work being shoved down our throats with the Pepsi deal, but even that didnt work….so its back to the drawing board

    • truth(icki’s B**** ASS STANS can EAT ME honey!! Yall b**** is a STANK P**** FLOP chile! (puckers lips like Drake)) May 21, 2013


      • pat May 21, 2013

    • Mwah May 21, 2013

      Um if Beyonces wanted to do the typical pop right now she could. Look at JLo. But she chooses not to.

  19. Joey May 21, 2013

    Great!!! all I need right now is a iTunes release date and a music video

  20. truth(icki’s B**** ASS STANS can EAT ME honey!! Yall b**** is a STANK P**** FLOP chile! (puckers lips like Drake)) May 21, 2013

  23. whocares May 21, 2013

    good for dream because she helps to make him relevant again if he ever was at all. sad for beyonce. you stans are the worst. you are the reason beyonce continues to disappoint with this weak ass s***. not everything she jumps on or does slays.

  24. mildred May 21, 2013

    Love bey! I know haters will never admit how great this song is, bt it does nt change hw gr8 this song is! Wow lovw King BEY

  25. Latrell4Bey May 21, 2013

  26. EdwardPonton May 21, 2013

    This s*** knocks Beyonce can make a mediocre song turn into a hit with her musicianship she’s talented man really knows how to dive deep into the feeling of a song. 2 chains killed his Verse, the dream singing was limited. It’s a hit to me

  27. rihking May 21, 2013

    This s*** is boring and wag…This cow really needs to hang it up.

    • Teah May 21, 2013

      No your no talented ass Splice King needs to hang it up.

  28. KD May 21, 2013


    I love this song…I’m love when Bey is restrained on songs i.e. this + I miss you.

    I might actually get the Dreams album :-0

    • KD May 21, 2013

      I’m = I

    • Teflon Boy May 21, 2013

      I was saying this above…, this is actually where she shines absolute brightest for me, when she’s more subtle. I used to love Beyonce but the change to constant hollering eventually just killed it for me.

  29. King B>Rihanna May 21, 2013

    wait so beyonce with freaky with this s***.

    yes i’m here for the more sensual Beyonce.

  30. Mwah May 21, 2013

      And how do you know this will be released as a single? 🙄

      Just looking for a way to PROMOTE your fav’s flopped albums and even singles I see . .


      • RIRI BOSS B**** May 21, 2013


      • . : : h 2 o : : . May 21, 2013

        And how “Unapologetic” being a FLOP or not does have anything to do with 4’s performance?

        Just the thought of Rihanna’s albums NEVER being considered successful UNLESS they outsell “4” – Beyonce’s lowest album and only flop album in 15 years . . . 😆

        Doesn’t that tell you something? 😆


        BTW, hang it up!

        Just like 2.8 million is a flop, 3 million is a FLOP too 😡

        NOT successful 😡

        Wake up from your FLOPPED dreams 😡

        Same goes for “FLOP it Up”. Platinum my ass.

  35. TheTruth Will Set You Free May 21, 2013

    Just the right amount of ratchet with a bit of bootay shake.

      You are talking about someone being ghetto while typing in all caps.

      Sit down, please.

  40. Special Delivery May 21, 2013

    Yes she certainly did bring it on this track. She sounds great.

  41. aloys234 May 21, 2013

    ‘Turnt’ = is a hit!I dont care how much shade u haters want to throw, its a TUNE!! just coz ur ear drums dont appreciate the music for the right reasons, whether it be for the club, to listen to at home or to just get crunk to in the bedroom on ur own.. its still a tune.. u ppl listened to it one time then u want to judge it based on that, but come next week be telling ppl how much its grown on u! i know ur type.. but thats ur m.o to hate thats the reason y u exist coz u aint had nothing positive in ur life..

  42. HoneychildPlease May 21, 2013

    No hunty just stop!…..

  43. Mr. Popularity May 21, 2013

    Beyoncé is definitely bigger than this…. she sounds good subdued :see once in a lifetime. I’m a fan of SOME ratchetness and this song channels rihanna, in my opinion, so im jamming

    • HoneychildPlease May 21, 2013

      She isn’t because if she was, she wouldn’t be doing it so just stop!

  44. Lolz May 21, 2013

    • Dray May 22, 2013

      Are…….you…….serious with this comment? I won’t even. . .chhhhhhhhh

      • Voice of Reason May 22, 2013

        Dear Dray,

        No need to stand down to people’s low intelligent level.

        There is a difference between being analytical and straight out stupid and delusional. The above comment (above yours) falls under the latter.

        Beyonce will NEVER reach Iconic and Legend status with childish lyrics like this and grown woman where she sings “I have cute face and fat ass”, if she feels the need to remind people of her outward beauty then there is something missing in her mental zone.

      • Voice of Reason May 22, 2013

        intelligence, not intelligent.

  53. DIGGER BEY May 21, 2013

    Why is it, that everytime THE QUEEN collabo with someone. She ends up Slaying them on their own songs lmao. Only True Vocal Queens do that bwahahahahahahahha. The b**** voice slayed anything R**** ever put out. See. This is the reason why I f*ck with this b****. Those critics was right. Nobody can drag their voice along side an Hip Hob Urban beat, better than THE QUEEN! NO ONE!

  54. MING May 21, 2013


    ” DREAM can you write me a song like RHIANNA POUR IT UP”


  55. starboi May 21, 2013

    Song is just ok nothing special.dead at bey stans talkin abt her voice, anybody could have sung wat she sang on this track

  56. abzLovesBey May 21, 2013

I know u don’t but um….this is the Dream song. U delusional Dirty Filthy Rihc*nt. I done told ur ass to stay n ur lane. Now try me or THE QUEEN AGAIN!

  58. yep! May 21, 2013

    ok, beat it uo til I black out!??

  59. staph May 21, 2013

    It is okay! Nothing special, it is the Dream. He’s weak. I like Bey but if you wanna do legend, icon status music, this ain’t it. I think she must owe him some freebies for giving her writing credits or something because she wasted her talent on this song. Bey can do better and this is not it.

  60. DIGGER BEY May 21, 2013


  61. JER May 21, 2013

    This song is the epitome of beysic. I’ve never heard so much autotune on Dream either. SMH

  62. Dray May 22, 2013

    If Rih properly promotes PIU at the same time Bey tries to promote this—Bey’s song would fade into obscurity. This doesn’t touch PIU.

  63. Voice of Reason May 22, 2013

    am a fan of performing Beyonce! She can sensually set the stage on fire, that’s very good if she only wants to be known as the best female stage performer!

    If she wants to be true Icon and Legend,she needs to get ride of the mainstream writers and get to writing her own music without co-writing majority of the songs! She needs to take lessons from her junior sister Solange who completely write her own music from start to finish!

    Solange is more lyrically grown than Beyonce. I actually like the two sisters. I just expected something more substantial from Beyonce at this stage of her career, pushing 20 years in the industry.

    You are not a grown woman if you just want to tell the world how “cute” and “fat ass” you are!!! (cut the bull of “well she is grown she can do what she wants”). We know you are cute, the ass, well that is debatable (because of the b*** pads).

    Grown women don’t say narcissistic things! any true grown woman will tell you that their inner qualities is what makes them truly beautiful and knowledge is grown, that musical knowledge seems to always elude Beyonce. When you listen to 4, you can see she has the potential but she seems to be distracted by her own inconsistency in her message and vision!

    Beyonce get your daddy back. You can not deny Beyonce had consistent message (whether fake or real) when she was managed by her father.

    Adele is only 24 or 25 years old but she is reaching Iconic and Legend status far quicker than Beyonce, when it comes to lyrics.

    Beyonce needs to go away for a long time and self examine. Sade brings out an album after being away for so long, the album sell out because it’s lyrically rich!!

    Beyonce should not be worried about being forgotten if she goes away for two years or more, as long as she comes back with substantial lyrics and musical contents.

    As a stan you have to be analytical and call a spade a spade, no matter who the person is. I expect such “I am cute and my ass is fat, beat it till black out” from the likes of Rihanna (understandably because she is young) not grown woman Beyonce!!!

    There is a way to sell and tell the world about how good your s** life is without being ratchet about it, just ask Janet Jackson!!! Majority of Janet music were s** related but she maturely executed them with style. Something Beyonce has yet to learn.

    Beyonce you can do it, forget what is hot (ratchet, turnt up or whatever), go inward (beyonce everyone knows you are outwardly cute) and produce iconic and legendary lyrics!!!

    The nerve of her to be shading other artists in her documentary!!! Beyonce BE GROWN, I am fan but I want you grown because I am your age. I don’t want to tell the world how cute my face is and the size of my b***, I just let my inner qualities reflect my qualities.

    • Voice of Reason May 22, 2013

      I meant to say “I let my inner qualities reflect my confident”

      First paragraph should begin with ” I am a fan”…..

      Anyway, she needs to go back to the drawing board or just do the tour and take a long break and come back with mature grown woman lyrics!!

  64. Voice of Reason May 22, 2013

    rid not ride!
