New Song: BOOTS & Beyonce – ‘Dreams’

Published: Tuesday 22nd Apr 2014 by Sam

Hitmaker BOOTS helped Beyonce piece together her recent blockbuster album – creating cuts such as ‘Haunted’ and ‘Heaven’. Hence it’s little surprise that the superstar singer was willing to return the favour.

King B re-teams with the singer/songwriter/producer on his new track, christened ‘Dreams’.

The song and its backstory await below…

Via Boots:

So this is the last song on my mixtape. My friend and I recorded it recently and while we were trying to figure out what to do with it, we had an idea.

A while back I promised myself that if I ever had the opportunity to help others, or give back in some way, I would seize it.

A friend recently told me about a non-profit organization called “Day One” here in NYC. In their words, “Day One is the only organization in New York City solely devoted to the issue of teen dating violence.”

I feel that protecting women from these horrible and unthinkable acts should take precedence in our society. I feel passionate about this because if more women knew that safe places existed from the turmoil they experience, it could possibly prevent these situations from occurring or reoccurring.

Every cent made from this song will go directly to Day One

It’s hard to put into words how thankful I am for everything and everyone who helped get this together. I’ve experienced a lot in my life. Good and bad. But through it all, I’m certain every one of those things had to happen to get me right where I am today. I feel very fortunate for that. Thanks for all of your love and support.

    Wow. I actually liked this .

  7. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) April 22, 2014

    I’ll pass on this just like the GP passed on Partition. Tired of this flop Sasquatch looking ass B*****.

    • lovebird April 22, 2014

      DEATH!!! Tell us how you really feel girl.

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) April 22, 2014

        Gurl bye! you have the audacity to reply to me with your pressed ass.

    • Micks April 22, 2014

      Then why are you in her posts?

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) April 22, 2014

        Then why are you replying?

      • Micks April 22, 2014

        Because I was wondering how you would explain such a contradiction.

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) April 22, 2014

        No… Because you’re pressed.

        I am entitled to my opinion.

      • Micks April 22, 2014

        No I’m not pressed. I’m just asking a simple question.

    • BeyDaQueen April 22, 2014

      A moo Stan calling someone a flop? Go buy your mine
      You fat s****

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) April 22, 2014

        Worry about Partition falling off of the charts instead of LegendM. Bye

      • BEYFLAWLESS April 22, 2014

        she mad cause her fav keep on pushing back that album

  8. lovebird April 22, 2014

    Meh, I do see Beyonce has lost her payola connections looking at FLOPtition’s chart position.

    And not Katy Payola’s dark secrets coming out of her fraudulently bought 9 #1s. I now see what Kat Payola meant by Mariah is good for a throwback, yes because she wrote you the blueprint on how to fabricate success with payola.

    • Micks April 22, 2014

      Are you really surprised about Katy. She already did it with Roar.

    • NICKI IS QUEEN OTHER B****** TAKE A SEAT April 22, 2014

      Why do you keep shading your own fav like that??

    • GREEKGOD April 22, 2014

      How many times are you going to report this?

  9. Micks April 22, 2014

    This is so nice and Bey took be back to her Dangerously In Love vocals. Beautiful.

  10. lovebird April 22, 2014

    Katy Payola’s shady dealings became apparent when last Friday night and roar became hits. How can someone brag about 9 local #1s and lag so behind on global #1s; how many #1s does Katy Payola have in the UK? Her payola doesn’t work there SCREAMS!!!!!

  11. lovebird April 22, 2014

    And not some radio stations refusing to play birthday until they receive a check; not Katy Payola bribing them with a cake. This comes from the Sony/Beyonce payola handbook where they offer to pay bills for radio stations, give them gifts and free concert tickets in exchange for airplay. I’m weak at all this tea coming out, I’ve just been getting my life.

    • FutureCIARA April 22, 2014

      Gorl where did you get this T from????

      I am on the floor!

  12. BeyIsKing April 22, 2014

    The high note!!

  13. Realest April 22, 2014

    This is HOT! Thank you Beyonce! Thank you for keeping vocals at the forefront of your artistry. Thank you for being so passionate about your craft and putting everything you have into your music. It’s sad when you’re literally the only “popular” female, black, crossover artist who pays ode to vocals and the divas before you. You are the standard and I know the divas before you (Patti, Whitney, Mariah etc) are so happy that at least ONE of the girls at the top of the game are keeping the VOCALS alive. Can’t say the same for ANY OTHER “popular” black female.

    • coolness April 22, 2014

      Wow @Realest. I never thought of it that way until you mentioned it. Bey’s probably the only major Pop girl whose music is vocal-centric. The others tend to be more producer focused. I have no qualms with them because variety is the spice of life but it’s sad that there are only 4 Black women that have been able to cross-over; Bey, Rih, A. Keys and Nicki. There are so many amazing female singers out there but don’t have the support of mainstream. It’s truly unfortunate but props to Bey for developing her artistry the way she has 🙂

      • Realest April 22, 2014

        A.Keys gets, relatively,” popular” love too and I like her. I think she’s talented! I forgot about her. She’s doing her thing and a respected musician!!!

  14. Skyfall April 22, 2014

    This is nice, I love beys vocals in this. But am I the only one that would be her for a pt.2 album

    • H2O April 22, 2014

      No you’re not. 😥

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) April 22, 2014

      Yes, you’re the only one

  15. lovebird April 22, 2014

    I guess FlopGa can have the last laugh now, especially seeing that FLOP coast has driven the Lana fans into hiding and Katy Payola’s shady dealings are coming to light, I CAN’T BREATH.

    • Skyfall April 22, 2014

      Ultimate death, Katy must’ve missed her monthly payment so they exposed her ass.

      • lovebird April 22, 2014

        SCREAMS!!!! They did her wrong by posting her bribes (the cakes) on Twitter; I’m sure they were mad it wasn’t a check.

        That Toronto radio station just went flat out and exposed her ass, the tea was hot and I loved every moment of it.

    • FutureCIARA April 22, 2014


      Im gagging, Who spilled all this T about Katy using Payola???

      This is an Ultimate Kii!!!

      • lovebird April 22, 2014

        Gurl you better go to Twitter, the monsters have an Axe to grind, they’ve been spilling tea for days.

  16. No Troll April 22, 2014

    I normally only read and shake my head at the comments. I’m a lamb to the heart and will tell you that song wasHOT! See real lambs aren’t in here fighting. Real mariah fans love music and all music. Our fave just so happens to be mc. We had our time and are comfortable with the success and hope for more. This is Bey season and I am enjoying the fruit cake out of it. She has been releasing some good tunes. This is a summer banger.

  17. lovebird April 22, 2014


    I’m surprised she let that truth tea come out, at least Mariah kept that s*** on lock for a good 12 to 15 years, Katy’s Payola activities are coming out so early in her career DIES!!!!!!!!!!

  18. Skyfall April 22, 2014

    At Mariah #1s weren’t a generic repetitive mess like katyolas lol. Mariah also sold albums WW unlike Katy who could barely sell TD even with it’s paid for #1s and rerelease.

  19. Blue Ivy Carter-Rodriguez April 22, 2014

    I like the song but I think it would have been better if bootz sang the whole thing or it was just a Beyoncé song, also we all know Beyoncé cannot pull at hi note live.. At least not without a prerecord ing.. Kii

    Beyoncé girl this won’t push more albums, you need to get on stage, grab you a pole and pop thAt hippo ass because that’s the only way people will buy your album girl.

    • Jewel April 22, 2014

      Girl bye know what you are talking about before you come for Beyoncé. Yes she prerecords sometimes, but she hits high note LIVE throughout her whole Tour. Start with 1+1.

  20. Skyfall April 22, 2014


    A radio station in Toronto called her out

    • FutureCIARA April 22, 2014

      Thats a Kiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii

      She is soo basic/generic

  21. FutureCIARA April 22, 2014

    Not @Slut_Riah announcing publicly that she passes on this Bey song, when its clear the GP has also passed on all 637286472386 of Mariah’s released singles since 2009.

    If anything, the Mariah stans need to be supporting and sharing love to every artist so their fave can atleast secure a Top 1000 and not look bad!!!

  22. Rosie April 22, 2014

    This song is cute.
    I see pressed little Fagbird still has me on its mind, aw. Wasn’t it just bandwagoning the s*** out of Katy around the time Roar came out? But I’m not going to pay anymore attention to it since I already get it fuming with no attempt.

    • FutureCIARA April 22, 2014

      Sis why have you been hiding?????

      Everyone here has clocked that all the Llama stans have been No where to be found!

      Awaiting “Flop Coast” video on Wednesday to see if it will save it from free falling down the iTunes charts, are we??

      • Rosie April 22, 2014

        Kii and it is STILL higher than “smash hit” Local Party ever charted on iTunes. And Lana isn’t even a local singles artist like your fave. I have a life, unlike you gigs who just sit on some low budget urban blog all day.
        See you in June when Lana does more than 57K!

      • FutureCIARA April 22, 2014

        Gorl Bye!!!!

        Lets hope it doesn’t take her another 2years to get to platinum in the US!

      • Rosie April 22, 2014

        It could be worse though! Like your fave still not selling 200K of her “comeback” album after 9 months.

      • FutureCIARA April 22, 2014

        Or worser, Like Llama being dubbed the “Queen Of Festivals” but cant keep a single in the top 5 for a couple of days, And performing at venues half the size Demi Lovato entertains!

  23. Luscious April 22, 2014

    Absolutely beautiful. The song is so soothing and deep. Bey has a lovely voice.

  24. FutureCIARA April 22, 2014


    Is there any Adele T lately?? Imma need her to announce an album this year!!!
    Preferably around Summer

  25. Rosie April 22, 2014

    Also I’m surprised there wasn’t a post on Katy’s apparent payola yet.

  26. lovebird April 22, 2014

    @Future Ciara

    A local radio station in Toronto, Canada has said that Katy Perry participates in marketing schemes such as paying off radio stations to play her songs, a practice known as payola.
    A representative from Hits 93 Toronto took to twitter to discuss why Katy Perry’s song Birthday won’t chart on the Canadian Hot 100. Apparently the reason the song isn’t getting much airplay is because it’s not a song that Perry’s PR team has paid the stations to play.
    The rep did say however, that Dark Horse gets as much Canadian airtime as it does is because she pays for it…
    This is interesting… read the tweets for yourself, and see if you can follow along!
    @KatysFlop: #Birthday by @KatyPerry was a FLOP, not G.U.Y. There’s a reason why #GUY is #1 on our chart and #Birthday isn’t even on it.
    — Hits 93 Toronto (@Hits93Toronto) April 20, 2014
    @KatysFlop: Birthday is NOT gonna enter the Canadian Hot 100 because, of how little airplay it gets. GUY will most definitely get in.
    — Hits 93 Toronto (@Hits93Toronto) April 20, 2014
    @PromoKaty05: Oh, and Dark Horse is ONLY being played so much because, Katy PAID the stations to play it. It’s a marketing scheme.
    — Hits 93 Toronto (@Hits93Toronto) April 20, 2014
    @PromoKaty05: GUY isn’t being played because, Gaga doesn’t do marketing scheme’s like that. I’m not supporting either. Just staying facts.
    — Hits 93 Toronto (@Hits93Toronto) April 20, 2014
    @_iEatHearts: No, I’m just stating facts. I don’t think it’s professional to be paying radio stations to play your music EVERY 10mins.
    — Hits 93 Toronto (@Hits93Toronto) April 20, 2014
    @_iEatHearts: I applaud Lady Gaga for not doing such.
    — Hits 93 Toronto (@Hits93Toronto) April 20, 2014
    @MichaelKatyDaw: I agree. BUT, I don’t think Katy Perry’s fans shouldn’t be insulting Gaga because, she’s not using marketing schemes.
    — Hits 93 Toronto (@Hits93Toronto) April 20, 2014
    @RafaSMartinez: I’m sorry but, I’m not. It’s just very unfortunate that a pop celeb has to PAY to get airplay.

    • FutureCIARA April 22, 2014

      ULTIMATE DEATH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      iLive for this #EXPOSÉ

      Radio stations need to expose more artist for this shitt, so we can properly divide who Stole/PAID for their #1’s and who got it rightfully!

  27. KATY -MJ-PERRY April 22, 2014


    • FutureCIARA April 22, 2014

      She clearly PAID cash money for those generic #1’s sweetie!!

  28. Jdek April 22, 2014

    This is actually nice.

  29. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) April 22, 2014

    LOL @ it though. Lmfao

  30. lovebird April 22, 2014

    @future Ciara

    Pics of Katy Payola bribing radio stations with cakes; they did her wrong by posting this on Twitter, obviously mad they’re not checks LMAO

    • FutureCIARA April 22, 2014


      You peed for these receipts!!

      I have lost all respect for Ms.Perry

      You think Rihanna is guilty of these types of marketing schemes as well or Nah??

  31. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) April 22, 2014

    Not defending Katy but isn’t her net worth more than Rihanna’s net worth? Also, doesn’t she have more #1 singles as lead artist? Doesn’t she also have more #1 albums?

    • Lolz April 22, 2014


    • H2O April 22, 2014

      Seriously I just feel sorry for general radio listeners’ ears. Every 10 minutes? OMG

      • H2O April 22, 2014

        wrong comment box -_-

    • Blue Ivy Carter-Rodriguez April 22, 2014

      Girl I’m not going to bother with you but you’re honestly bored and need to stay humble. You’re going to get dragged because Mariah bob Carey pants is flopping and losing her voice. So how about you exit TGJ while you still can before we drag you, your spongebob looking fave and Katy for being so basic to let a Canadian radio station shade her

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) April 22, 2014

        I asked a few question and you’re seething? #MyImpact #dismissed

  32. Blue Ivy Carter-Rodriguez April 22, 2014

    Rosie girl, we missed you! How does it feel to have your fave outsold and charted by Gaga? You went hard too but it looks like Lana’s impact is only apparent on TGJ because other than you , your 4900 fake accounts and fishy hippo bottoms, no one gives a f*** about her

    • Rosie April 22, 2014

      The irony of you out of all people accusing me of having multiple accounts. Kii.

      • FutureCIARA April 22, 2014

        Give it up @TROLLsie

  33. Skyfall April 22, 2014


    Her album is rumored to come out in October and she’s planning a concert to promote it

    • FutureCIARA April 22, 2014

      Im here for it babe!!!

      • Rosie April 22, 2014

        You’re as pressed as that other f** with me. Stop worrying about me and my fave and go get Ciara an aluminum foil certification.

      • FutureCIARA April 22, 2014

        Go back into hiding until UltraFlop bombs!!!!

        And stop chasing me to reply to my comments!!

        BYE NOW!

      • Rosie April 22, 2014

        B**** not when YOU are the one replying to me first. Once again, don’t come for anyone when your fave is getting outsold by irrelevant indie acts who have less than half the promo that Cierror did.

      • FutureCIARA April 22, 2014

        But not your fav being “Queen Of Coachella” but debuting less than APPLAUSE APPLAUSE APPLAUSE!

  34. H2O April 22, 2014

    Seriously I just feel sorry for general radio listeners’ ears. Every 10 minutes? OMG

  35. coolness April 22, 2014

    It’s really nice and Beyonce seems to have found a sweet spot with Boots who I think did an amazingly creative job on her album. Beyonce’s voice has really changed. Lol, I still recognize her voice and all but it’s gone from being rather bright, clear and powerful (B’Day) to a darker timbre as I noted on her self-titled album. Not to mention, her skills as a vocalist have improved SO much. From a technique standpoint, she’s amazing! I like the song. Very hypnotic.

  36. rih keeps winning – catch up heuax April 22, 2014

    Sia said she offered ‘ pretty hurts’ to katy perry and rihanna 1st. So that answers the stupid u asked about rihanna songs sound better when others sing it.

    RIP was meant for Rih RIH and Rita whora took the sng and where did it go? NOWHERE!

    Tallking of rita whora her song has been out in the USA FOR NEARLY 24 HOURS, COMPETE with a video dn all and yet she still cannot break into the top 100itunes. She is literally pinning all her hopes on fallon.

    Does it take RIH RIH 24 hours to chart on iTunes chart? PR does it take it take RIH an hour or so to hit number 1?

  37. Lolz April 22, 2014

    I am in love with this her vocals are everything. Their voices are well suited too.

  38. lovebird April 22, 2014

    Gurl Rihanna doesn’t need payola, when she goes #1 she goes #1 EVERYWHERE.

    • FutureCIARA April 22, 2014

      Well you gotta admit, Katy being exposed definitely brings up the question of who else is doing these types of schemes, Its a shady dark business, and you never know.

      But hooray for Gaga I guess.

    • Skyfall April 22, 2014

      I agree Rihanna actually promotes her music and whatever it charts then that’s that. Ive observed that She doesn’t seem to care about chart positions

      • Lolz April 22, 2014

        Rihanna doesn’t care about chart positions? Are you serious?

  39. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) April 22, 2014

    Dying @how Rosie is dragging it though. When will that BXTCH learn?

    • FutureCIARA April 22, 2014

      You should be dying at how JLO and Nicki Minaj are dragging Mariah OUT of the charts though!!

      • lolz April 22, 2014


  40. Skyfall April 22, 2014

    You can always tell who’s using payola buy if the song actually lives up to its hype, I mean roar went to #1 but who do you know who actually listen to it and sang it, Dark Horse went #1 but again it was hot for a week but her payola kept it #1. When Rihanna releases a song everybody is on it, singing it, buying it (illegally downloading for the hood rats) Katy doesn’t get the same reception and I’ve been suspecting her of payola since teenage dream

  41. ICANT April 22, 2014

    its boring rihanna wouldve fit this song better

    • GREEKGOD April 22, 2014

      With what vocals?

  42. Revolution April 22, 2014

    Wow. Beautiful.

  43. Ajanni April 22, 2014

    Very pretty.

  44. CherylSoldier April 22, 2014

    Yas bey, slay!

  45. CherylSoldier April 22, 2014

    Not west coast selling less than team now!!
    I thought Lana was global?! Is she still #1 in
    Cambodia, Rosie and truth?

  46. Rosie April 22, 2014

    I love when you f*** have to cling to Borde just to drag Lana.
    Too bad with all of those (American) smash hits, Payola Heorine is only certified in less than 5 countries.

    • CherylSoldier April 22, 2014

      Yet like Cheryl and Gaga, Lorde also sold more than double first week than West Coast. Seethe now that your fav is out of the top 40. I’m pretty sure that’s a bigger drop than every single one of Gag’s promo singles. I’M DEAD. Looks like Lana being certified in Cambodia couldn’t save West Coast.

  47. fatusankoh April 22, 2014

    Omg bey have the best vocal I love the song a lot thanks Sam for posting this make my day

  48. CherylSoldier April 22, 2014

    I’m screaming that in all of these European countries that Rosie brags about, West Coast hasn’t even charted!!! A peak position of 21 in Finland and she wants to come for Gaga. deathhhhhh

  49. Blue Ivy Carter-Rodriguez April 22, 2014

    Girl the only way Beyoncé could hit them notes live is when there’s a sound guy working those autotone cords to death. In the studio she’ll kill it but live she will dodge them notes just like how mooriah Carey dodges a gym.

    • Jewel April 23, 2014

      You know nothing. Sit.

  50. Blue Ivy Carter-Rodriguez April 22, 2014

    ^^^ replied to that hive account of slay hive or Richie rich or whoever is in the hive

    Wait.. When did Beyoncé take pic in a head scarf? Didn’t Rihanna do this like months ago? Lmfao death , that Rihanna impact

  51. gilbert April 22, 2014

    daaaaaamnnnnn B’s vocals>>>>>>>>> sang it with that angelic voice B!

  52. RoyalKev April 22, 2014

    The life given from that last 2 minutes.
    Will this woman ever stop outdoing herself with every era?

  53. Spunkypoop April 22, 2014

    BEYONce is a flop b****! … Now you all know I’m lying! She is that b**** and will forever bey! She sounds so damn good it’s sickening.

  54. Navy Commander April 22, 2014

    Lmao at payola Perry and her fans have the nerve to come for the navy. Happy flopdayy kii
