First Look: Beyonce 'I Am...' Re-Releas
People.com have just released the cover art and details of the official re-release of Beyonce’s ‘I Am…’ LP, which is titled ‘Above and Beyonce Video Collection and Dance Mixes’. The set will hit shelves in a CD/DVD format in June:

Beyoncé is releasing a new remix album and DVD collection on June 16 called Above and Beyoncé Video Collection and Dance Mixes – and PEOPLE.com has your first look at the cover art.

Among the tracks included on the collection is a remix of her song “Ego” featuring a guest appearance by Kanye West. “The song is fun,” says Beyoncé. “It talks about someone being very confident and having this swagger when they walk and when they talk.”

As for nabbing West, well, Beyoncé says the rapper – known for his outsized personality – was a good match. Recounting her conversation with West, Beyoncé says he agreed to do it, telling her, ” ‘Okay, so you have a song about an ego and you want me on the record?’ He’s like, ‘I love it. I’ll do it.’ ”

Above and Beyoncé will be available at Wal-Mart everywhere and J&R Music stores in New York City beginning June 16.

Check out the official tracklist for the set below:

1. “If I Were a Boy” 5:03
2. “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)” 3:20
3. “Halo” 3:44
4. “Diva” 4:06
5. “Broken-Hearted Girl” 4:31
6. “Ego” (Fan Exclusive) 3:56
7. “Ego” (Remix Feat. Kanye West) 4:47
8. Behind the Scenes
9. Credits

1. “If I Were a Boy” (Maurice Joshua Mojo UK Remix)
2. “Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It)” (DJ Escape Club Version)
3. “Diva” (Karmatronic Club Remix)
4. “Halo” (Dave Aude Club)
5. “Broken-Hearted Girl” (Catalyst Remix)
6. “Ego” (DAC Remix)
7. “Sweet Dreams” (Karmatronic Remix)
8. “Ego” (Remix featuring Kanye West)

Where to start? The cover sure looks hot. But the tracklisting…not so much. I’m sure many were hoping for a full-on Anthology ala ‘B’ Day’, but I guess not this time. I actually detest them random-a** dance mixes artists seem to fling on their releases these days; it’s real baffling to see Bouncy do this as well, especially considering her core audience are are R&B/Pop listeners as opposed to Dance fans.
