New Song: Beyonce – ‘Party (ft. J.Cole) (Single Mix)

Published: Friday 21st Oct 2011 by Sam

It’s here!

The single mix of Beyonce‘s ‘Party’ has arrived. Formerly featuring Andre 3000, the cut is now blessed with a verse from Roc Nation chart-stormer J.Cole.

Take a listen below…

We “hear” legal clearance issues prevented Andre 3000 from appearing in the track’s forthcoming video, which is why the decision was made to enlist Cole. A shame as his verse doesn’t touch that of the Outkaster’ers. Still, a respectable contribution to a blazing hot track.

  5. french gyal October 21, 2011

    can someone please explain to me HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE TO SOLD ALMOST 1 MILLIONS COPY OF YOUR ALBUM WITH ANDRE 3000 ON THE SINGLE WHICH MEANS THE LABEL AGREE TO HAVE HIM ON THE SONG
    AND REPLACE IT WITH J COLE FOR THE VIDEO???
    LOOOOL IT SOUNDS STRANGE TO ME !!!! beyonce almost doesnt do featuring with artists who are not on her caliber !!! her and jcole sounds strange

  6. Malibu Barbie October 21, 2011

    and if u cudnt put him in the video u cudda still used his audio and worked around it.. no bueno beyonce’

  7. YEABEY is on your mind. October 21, 2011

    Its ehh to me….But of course the Urban audience will eat it up due to the J Cole Hype…

    I’ve gotten so used to Andre’s verse …..

    I’m really pissed he could not get label clearance for the video and on top of that, he was on vacation….

    This will be good promo for both J Cole though….

  8. Robbie October 21, 2011

    This is my least favorite song but now Andre’s part is cut the whole song sounds like a disaster. I hope the video turns out great to save this hot mess… Hopefully a video for END OF TIME will save 4!

  9. Yellow Gorillah October 21, 2011

    WTF

    NO! We need MATTHEW Back she don’t know how to manage herself

    How she gone kick of Andre mother f****** 3000..I love J Cole but NO!

    Why is she f****** up one of my favourite tracks from 4. I swear this era just keeps on getting worst and worst I Don’t want her to even release end of time in case she f**** that up too.

    The party Video better slay because this song is a smash.

  10. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) October 21, 2011

    Positive first: the song is totally growing on me.I still think that it’s a bit longer than it needs to be, like I had said a few months ago, but I am starting to like it instead of just tolerating with it 😉 I’ve loved the 90’s vibe since it was released, but now I’m getting used to the overall sound of the song.Not my favorite (‘LET’S START OOOOOOOVEEEER’), but it’s a good track.

    Now, the negative thing is that J Cole’s verse is embarassing 😳 Seriously, I’ve been listening to J Cole’s music since the 2nd mixtape he released, but this mess right here is not cutting it for me.Honestly, what was that??IMO, calling it a verse is an overstatement.Why does J Cole screw up in his major features?First S & M, now this one…

    Anyway, I hope she’ll deliver with the video to make the song grow on me a bit more. 😎

    @KINGB Thanks for the link that works 🙂

  11. chaperel October 21, 2011

    Hate it 3000 was better

  12. Jordan October 21, 2011

    andre 3000 added life to the track. j cole just makes the song even more boring than it already is…

  13. THE LEGENDARY LACEFRONCE. October 21, 2011

    Who CARES???

    FLOP FLOP FLOP

  14. lllll October 21, 2011

    Andre 3000 version is much better he made it so much better.

    J cole ruined the track its like a comedy version.

  15. James October 21, 2011

    His verse sucks…and Andre should be mad and beyonce should be ashamed

  16. Army Of Queen A (Aaliyah) & Queen Bee (Lil Kim) >>>>>>>> Your Fave ! October 21, 2011

    Damnn J Cole Bey Was Trying To Help You Out & You Do This ??!!! ;( The Video BETTER Slay ! 🙂

  17. My2CENTS October 21, 2011

    These are DUMBest lyrics to date from BEYONCE and this is your FAVORITE SONG on the CD….says alot about her fans!! Here is the breakdown:

    I may be young, but I’m ready- (stolen line)
    To give you all my love
    I told my girls you can get it
    Don’t slow it down, just let it go-(don’t slow what down? let go of what?)

    So in love
    I’d give it all away-(You’d give it all away for love?)
    Just don’t tell nobody tomorrow-(If he loved you back you then he wouldn’t tell anybody!)
    So tonight,
    I’ll do it every way-(so, you will do it every way if he doesnt tell tomorrow?… sounds thirsty!)
    Cause knockin’ til the morning light

    Cause we like to party, hey hey hey
    Cause we like to party, hey hey hey
    Cause we like to party-(Laziest Hook EVER)

    Your touch is driving me crazy
    I can’t explain the way I feel-(you just explained…. its driving you CRAZY!)
    Tuck down with the radio on-(are you giving him head w/the radio on?)
    And the night belong to us
    Just hold me close, don’t let me go-(don’t let go?….until the A.M. you mean?)

    So in love
    I don’t care what they say-(but I thought you didnt want him to tell and now you don’t care?)
    I don’t care if they talking tomorrow-(you just said that!)
    Cause tonight’s the night
    That I give you everything-(so this is you first time w/him? and your in LOVE? and your going to give him EVERYTHING!?)
    Music knockin’ ’til the morning light

    Sound like a drunk chick, taking home the dude that bought her the drink, leaving her girls at the club and she is giving him head in the back seat, hoping he don’t tell… then she gets caught giving him head, then says she doesn’t care she got caught in the morning light outside still sleeping in the backseat in the parking lot….

    I guess this is what AMBER COLE was reciting…HMMMMM……Oh, yeah….I HATE THIS song and B can do much BETTER!

  18. beck October 21, 2011

    Why are y’all so mad? Just buy the damn album if you want the original version -_-

  19. Rawblue October 21, 2011

    @My2CENTS for you to take the time out, find lyrics, and post it under Beyonce topic is just……smh. im pretty sure you sing along to it like everybody else.

  20. noeh October 21, 2011

    THAT WHY BEYONCE IS FAMOUS BECAUSE SHE’S SO MANY HATERS AND SOME PEOPLE WANT TO GET BEYONCE ATTENTION THAT’S WHY THEY SAYING NEGATIVE ABOUT BEYONCE AND THEY ARE STUPID PERSON . BEYONCE IS IS A THE ONE THE GREAT SINGER OF HER GENERATION I LOVE BEYONCE
    HATER!!!!!!! WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAA ALL OF YOU IS A STUPID YES YOU

  21. My2CENTS October 21, 2011

    @RawBlue
    Ummmmm, NO!
    I would like to give every artist the benefit of the doubt…I listen to to lyrics first! I do not say ” the beat is hot so the song is hot”… So, I gave my opinion of the lyrics and to go furthur the melody is wack too!….
    I came to listen to what J.Cole put on the track and guess what?…..It doesn’t make the song better….and Yes I bought 4….B got my $ for that as well as the rest of her albums but I SKIP this track!
    I post HER lyrics under her POST because they are HER LYRICS…SMH…Why ask why?
    Why don’t you stick to the POST of Beyonce and this SONG be it track, LYRIC, J.Cole or Bey herself and don’t worry about what I typed……IJS!…Better yet BE-NON-SAY….please and thanks!

  22. mel October 21, 2011

    @My2CENTS

    Sit down somewhere

  23. My2CENTS October 21, 2011

    @RAWBLUE BTW

    that is why the post LYRICS so folks know what they are reciting…you must of lerned from YO GABBA GABBA….you need to sing your ABC’s to remember what comes after B….See! LOL

    Ya’ll need to come better……in the words of J…..”LAAAAAAMMMMEEEEEE”

    I must of touched a nerve and after reading what I wrote you also know….the lyrics are WACK!….or you would have something to discredit what I wrote…

  25. antertain October 21, 2011

    Nowhere near Andre 3000’s verse level.
    Shoulda got Nas or Rozay or Jay-Z

  26. David October 21, 2011

    How is an album a flop when it sold 850K without a hit single in less than five months..lol…these f*** i tell ya….J.Cole rode this beat…lol…he should have added couple more bars…but that s*** was hot……

  27. James227 October 21, 2011

    J. Cole sounds awful. I love it better with Andre3000. Glad I bought the original because if I did not download it yet I will not with J. Cole on it. Andre made the song what it was & J. Cole sounds lazy.

  28. danny b October 21, 2011

    All you lame asses need to have SEVERAL seats.

    As Sam stated, she didn’t “KICK OFF” Andre 3000 from the song. He couldn’t participate in the video because of legal issues so subsequently, J. Cole is featured in the video and this is the Single Release for that track used for the video. Also subsequently, the version with Andre 3000 is the one playing on radio and climbing the charts so please sit and SHUT. THEEEE. FUGG. UP!

    Gawd I swear Beyonce cant even breathe without you delusional Katy Perry and Justin Bieber consumers complaining about how much air she’s intaking.

  29. Malibu Barbie October 21, 2011

    its like KERI HILSON’S buyyou song ALL OVER AGAIN…. stick to what made the song a HIT. in keri’s case it was Lil’ Kim in Beyonce’s case its Andre3000 J.Cole’s verses on both songs just ruined the songs.. cole is good but this was horrible. this is BEYONCE’ u have to go the f*** in

  30. danny b October 21, 2011

    And while Andre’s verse did in fact take the song to a whole ‘nother level, it does not entirely MAKE the song. That is, the song, with it’s production and melody (lent from Beyonce alone) is alone a standout hot track. So in essence, I’m saying the song was already a hot track, but Andre 3000 made it even hotter. But his absence from the song doesn’t make it any less of hit than it really is.

  31. MISHKA October 21, 2011

    Sorry Queen Bey but ‘Party’ ain’t “Party” anymore without : “I ain’t stuntin’ to beat, talkin’ to me? Girl, why you f-ckin’ wit’ me? Move on, ain’t nuttin’ to see Pssh”

    Andre 3x makes this song , just like Bey and Kanye. What’s up with Andre 3000 and those legal clearance issues though. This is like the third or four time I hear about those.

    I like and root for J. Cole but it seems like he doesn’t have a trademarked flow of his own yet. Wiz Khalifa would have done a better job. I hope J will find his own lane and stick to it. ASAP.

  32. LOVE4BEY October 21, 2011

    its ok

  33. JP October 21, 2011

    Keri Hilson replacing Lil Kim with J. Cole was a disaster for that track…I didn’t even buy the official single with J. Cole…I only bump the Lil Kim version.

    Seems Beyonce is about to make the same mistake. Maybe she should rehire her father?

  34. LOVE4BEY October 21, 2011

    @My2cents

    your interpretation of the lyrics are STUPID…the lyrics are pretty self explanatory and makes sense…you took it to a whole different level

    Example:1)”Tuck down with the radio on-(are you giving him head w/the radio on?)”

    …smh…sweety she’s saying they’re holding eachother”tucked down” “leaned back in car” while listening to music..which brings me to the next line “just hold me close dont let me go” where did you get giving head? REACHING!

    2)Just hold me close, don’t let me go-(don’t let go?….until the A.M. you mean?)

    lol of course she doesnt mean hold me forever boo…just a saying people use when they’re in love…obviously we cant hold on to someone forever smh

    3)So in love
    I’d give it all away-(You’d give it all away for love?)
    Just don’t tell nobody tomorrow-(If he loved you back you then he wouldn’t tell anybody!)
    So tonight,
    I’ll do it every way-(so, you will do it every way if he doesnt tell tomorrow?… sounds thirsty!)
    Cause knockin’ til the morning light

    normally when people are in love they give eachother they’re all..(Bey and Jay together 10 years..she knows what it is to be in love)
    She wasnt saying she’ll do it every way if he doesnt tell…she’s saying she’s ready to give it all because she’s so in love…and she’d rather no one know’s the freaky ish she has planned for him tonight..reread lyrics

    how can this song sound like a drunk chick taking home a dude from a club…when she clearly states “she’s in love” didnt think you could be in love with a stranger from a club :/

    Obviously you missed the point of the song….i would give more examples but im over it

    P.S. not my favorite song either…but i know what it means 😉

  35. 100% REAL October 21, 2011

    In the words of Blaine and Antoine from, “In Living Color” – Hated It!!!! While I’m not a huge fan of the song in the first place, let’s keep it real – Andre 3000 made that song! If it weren’t for him, it would be tired and boring. So on that note, I’m not feeling it. Somethings are better left alone. And, this was one of those things.

  36. ON 2 THE NEXT 1 October 21, 2011

    WHAT THE HELL?

  37. ON 2 THE NEXT 1 October 21, 2011

    @100%REAL – WHY THE HELL DO U AND ZIGGY STARDUST HAVE THE SAME AVITAR PICTURE? I GUESS UR ASS GOT CAUGHT OUT THERE BEING THE SAME PERSON USING 2 DIFFERENT NAMES! SMH.

  38. TRUTH October 21, 2011

    SERIOUSLY AWFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Next<<<<<<<<<<<<

  39. My2CENTS October 21, 2011

    @LOVE4BEY

    So……Umm, you trying to make sense of the lyrics don’t make sense! Where did you her lean back in a car????? I guess you hearing things too…take from it what you want…

    She said “I told my girls you can get it” & “Your touch is driving me crazy” means we holding hands in a car???
    “Tuck down” and “Get it” are both slang terms so the meaning is loose not definate.

    Also people who are “IN LOVE” don’t worry about if someone gonna tell that they are HOLDING EACHOTHER in car! So….try again!

    and she also stated “Tonight the night I give everything”…. the Lyrics don’t match a 10yr relationship just the way she sang “Put a ring on it” when she is already married…the song was not written for her relationship it was to relate to her FANS because she is MARRIED….So again, the LYRICS are WACK and can be interpeted the way it’s written….there isn’t a intro, body and conclusion to tell the story she was trying to deliver…it was RUSHED!

    THE END

  40. VA STAND UP!!! October 21, 2011

    It’s decent but the original is much better. J Cole’s verse didn’t really add anything to the song and in fact I think it took away from the song. J Cole is definitely one of the hottest young rappers out right now and I definitely think he is going places but he can deliver some really lackluster verses sometimes. This isn’t the first time he has disappointed me on a feature, this is actually the 5th or 6th. *sigh*

    I’m sure Beyonce let him do the remix because she is hot right now, not to mention he is signed to her husbands label. She tends to hop on the bandwagon of the hot new artist, (like those two horrible ass remixes she did with Lady Gimmick or Shakira collaboration) but usually when Beyonce collaborates with other ‘hot’ artist it doesn’t turn out hot. *shrugs*

    For all the idiots saying this wasn’t a good move and the song is gonna flop, it’s just a f****** remixes dumbasses! It was obviously just done to push the single more.
    The original song with Andre 3000 is doing great on the r&b charts and it is the version that’s on the album! So f****** chill! SMH!

  41. Owen October 22, 2011

    I saw & met j.Cole yesterday the 20th in Baltimore, MD. He is amazing live & so dope to be around. Really chill artist! Two of my favs on one track I love it! You can see the pic of me w/Cole on my twitter @owenfentykills 😀

  42. MonteLL October 22, 2011

    I AGREE WITH @ANTERTAIN ….Jay-z should have definiteLy been on the track if not Andre. OAN: @MY2CENTS…..the lyric is TOP down with the radio on….i’M just SAYIN……. 🙂 Love U Bey, but J. CoLe made the track sound Like a homemade remix on youtube……. #Team4

  43. Gia October 22, 2011

    I feel so bad for Beyonce right now. Her time is over, Rihanna has replaced her and there’s nothing she can do about it. She’s over.

  44. Pop Royalty (RUDE BOY) October 22, 2011

    Ugh ..

    can the era get any worse ?! 😥

    party ” album version” >>> party ” single mix”

    after hearing it , I DOUBT it will be a success. but I hope it won’t be flop either.
    hope her URBAN fans support her cuz they seem like they are boycotting her stuffs this era.

    and that J -I use Rihanna for promo-COLE speaking about Abu dhabi ?! b**** please , u can barely work as a taxi driver there , u are not that qualified to get that arab money 😆 😆

    anyway I’m waiting for the vid.

  45. TheOneAndOnly October 22, 2011

    i am a strong Beyonce stan but J. Cole f***** it up royally….I wouldn’t say this song was perfect with andre 3000 but it sounded better than J. Cole’s version….he sucked, not Bey… But I do understand why she did this. Andre refused to a video, your husband has taken over J. Cole’s career, and you have a video coming…I would have done the same thing too

  46. YOOSONDALOOSE October 22, 2011

    Love it, Bey rocks!

    Thanks, for the correction…..however TOP is also slang for head….so, yea…….

  49. Pop Royalty (RUDE BOY) October 22, 2011

    @GIA :

    not to be rude , but your comment is BS ! no one can replace BEYONCÉ. Especially Rihanna , they are totally different , one of them sing songs for grown folks and the other sing to please her young fans ” in particular” , there’s room for everyone.

  65. can’tgetit October 22, 2011

    Why didn’t she just use her damm husband?

  66. can’tgetit October 22, 2011

    You know Nas or Luducris would have murdered this track

  67. huh? October 22, 2011

    I must be listening to something else, bc his part was not bad. I liked it better honestly because he actually rode the beat. But to each his own I rather just hear her sing actually so I really don’t care i’m still going to listen to the song, bc the chords are bomb! Sometime I wish people would get tired of being so critical of people’s music.

  68. Casey October 25, 2011

    I actually like this, and here is why:

    J.Cole recorded multiple verses for this song, but they ultimately chose Andre 3000 for the final version. To me, it seems like they didn’t want that time to go to waste, so they enlisted J.Cole for the REMIX. Besides, they wanted a shorter rap verse for the single, and I don’t think it would have done Andre any justice to cut his verse short.

    I honestly don’t understand why people are overreacting. I initially hated “Party” altogether, but now it’s one of my favorites, I feel like listeners can get so irrational when it comes to critiquing a song or artist, especially after hearing it for the first time.

    And some of these lyric breakdowns… I swear the people writing them have no credibility whatsoever, the grammar of some of these posts makes me want to vomit. A mistake or typo is one thing but jeeze, when every sentence is that bad, I don’t know why I still bother trying to decipher them.

  69. MEL October 26, 2011

    Yenno to those who are saying cole’s verse was whack, he initially made 3 verses for this song, but bey picked the shortest one. Cole even said in an interview the other verse he did want on the song was much much better and longer too, but of course the good man that he is, he couldn’t complain cause he felt blessed enough to be on a track with her.

  70. F Dash October 28, 2011

    Look its a niiice song. Bra right, it does have contradictory lyrics (jus saying), look Jay z shud hav done this. Then it wud hav been a top song of all time. Andre verse aint all dat, he aint rapping about what da song is about. “i hate dat” but cole (nah) bottom line, the whole mess is crazy. Whos song is it, 106 n park aired the video. It said j cole ft beyonce….. Lol

  71. F Dash October 28, 2011

    My2sense; that breakdowm was hilarious!! I was tripping. Funny my boy…F Dash

  72. Corey December 27, 2012

    Actually, J. Cole was cut from the original version in favor of Andre 3000. After J. Cole had written and recorded his verse, Columbia (with Beyonce’s compliance, obviously) decided to replace it with Andre’s verse. Now, J. Cole has been re-replaced… with himself. I’m glad; good for him.
