Listen: Beyonce – ‘I Care (Demo)’

Published: Tuesday 22nd Apr 2014 by David


Before being submitted to and subsequently rewritten by Beyonce and Chad Hugo, the former’s ‘I Care’ was introduced to ‘Who Cares‘, a solo release launched by singer/songwriter Jeff Bhasker.

Released via Bhasker‘s alter-ego Billy Kraven, ‘Cares’ found its way to Carter’s fourth studio album ‘4′, reproduced and recorded as it is today at Times Square‘s ‘MRS Studios‘, packing a vocal punch oft hailed as one of the vocalist’s best.

Love the song and want to hear the original?

    What is this mess? Smh

    • FutureCIARA April 22, 2014

      Why is “I luh ya papi” selling better than “Youre Mine”???

      • FentySoSnatched April 22, 2014

        The same reason Nayvadia won’t sell 30k next week.

      • FutureCIARA April 22, 2014

        The same reason why Rih fukks Drakeisha with a 13inch strap-on!

  2. Dirty Laundry April 22, 2014

    I’ll stick with Beyoncé thanks. I love the part where she mimic’s the guitar/saxophone on the final version.

    • BeySting April 22, 2014

      Of course you’ll stick with Beyonce. You’re a Kelly fan.

      • Skyfall April 22, 2014

    “Before being submitted to and subsequently rewritten by Beyonce and Chad Hugo”

    This is what Miss Beyonce does with most of her songs. Then, claim that she wrote it. Smart business woman if you ask me. Payola & stealing writting credits are business moves that you need to make in order to make it in this cut throat industry. Nothing about fair people will ever win in a devils playground….

    Also, why don’t Sam & his workers ever do these type of post with Rihanna, Mariah, Ciara & other artist. Why don’t they ever do demo’s & album/song history type of articles on other artist besides Beyonce ALL THE DAMN TIME! ughh

    • Skyfall April 22, 2014

      I agree, have you heard Mariah’s “weakness of the body” demo she did in the 80s it’s everything.

      • Stephy April 22, 2014

        Yes, I been herd that! Every Lamb stays online searching for unreleased material.

        Im waiting for Columbia to leak all her songs that did not make that cut for her first album & second album.

        Also, Mariah recorded a freaky sexual song called “Crave” for Daydream but was never released…

    • Lana Del Slay April 22, 2014

      May 6th lol.

      • FutureCIARA April 22, 2014

        Kiiiiiiii ^

      • Stephy April 22, 2014

        Shut Up! Don’t talk about her like that. Yall stan for C-Error who can’t even get a GOLD album in the past 5 years…

        The b***** is in her PRIME & still gets paid DUST!

        Mariah Carey can afford to flop all she wants… Cant say the same about the SheMale yall stan for…

        Now Kii That FLOPS

      • FutureCIARA April 22, 2014

        A Llama fan made the comment, I kee’d
        But you target the Ciara fan….????

        Kiiiiiiiiiiiiiii I get you gorls

    • KatyKadet April 22, 2014

      No lies were detected.

  6. GILBERTO April 22, 2014

    Beyoncé’s version is far superior than this one. She basically re-made this song from the scratch. She saw its potention and worked to make it a good song. You can clearly hear that she changed most of its lyrics and vocal producation. She’s definitely gifted.

    • Lindani April 23, 2014

      Gifted yes, wrote it she DID NOT!

  7. THE GREAT LACEFRONCE. April 22, 2014

    Thats THIEFonce’s speciality. She cant write songs so she takes what someone has already written, change a few words and claims she wrote it

    • Revolution April 22, 2014

      Well done *claps hands*. What do you want a cookie? Beyonce knows the business and gets paid $$$.

  8. Revolution April 22, 2014

    Beyonces version>>>>

    Jay Z & Beyoncé Reportedly Turn Down Attending Kim & Kanye’s Wedding, But Gift Them A Honeymoon Yacht Instead

  11. whocares April 22, 2014

    stop trying to give Beyonce writing credits. We all know that b**** don’t write s***. She can pay off a mf tho lol

  12. katy payolarry April 22, 2014

    when will your faves?

  13. Mark111 April 22, 2014

    Wasn’t it the HIVE saying that songs are just giving to Rihanna? Clearly every song on 4 was giving to Beyonce. Tried to tell me some s*** that that b**** write her songs. More proof that Bey isn’t any better than the rest. Those Roaches can’t tell me sh!t.

    • Jewel April 23, 2014

      Back to school you go…

  14. whatever! April 23, 2014

    This just show Beyonce has no real talent for songwriting or arranging. She is a really good performer and a great rip off artist as far as I’m concerned.

  15. ICANT April 23, 2014

    the demo makes more sense lyrically!! her sounds like a bunch of lyrics that rhyme.

  16. James April 24, 2014

    Beyonce really know how to upgrade a song. What is this mess.
