‘Sweet Dreams’ Writer: “Beyonce Recorded The Song In Fifteen Minutes”

Published: Friday 5th Jun 2015 by David

March 27th 2008 saw a  Beyonce number named ‘Beautiful Nightmare’ surface online and “break the internet” as anticipation for her third studio album ‘I Am…Sasha Fierce’ intensified.

Months later would see the cut’s official version emerge under the name ‘Sweet Dreams’ and appear on the first half of the aforementioned double-disk album.

Today, fans of the song and singer will learn that the song took no more than fifteen minutes to record.

Full story below…

The bop’s builder Rico Love revealed that the singer’s courteous nature is the real reason it was recorded. Indeed, he shares that Beyonce braved one of the worst storms in Miami’s history to reach them as she did not want to renege on her promise to meet him at his studio.

Beyonce shows up, in full Beyonce mode – hair done, makeup, shades, high heels — she’s like, ‘I’m so sorry guys! I cannot stay because Jay Z has a concert, but I didn’t want to not come, because I know you guys have been waiting all day.’ She was super sweet. And I said, ‘I wrote this song for you, would you like to listen to it at least?’

The singer loved the song so much that she recorded it in fifteen minutes, thanked Love and made her back into the storm to catch her husband’s show.

The song has sold over 2 million units in the U.S. since its release and followed the release of her last #1 single in the market, ‘Single Ladies.’

    It is IMPOSSIBLE to record a song in 15 minutes.

    You people need to stop with the creative Beyonce worship.

    With the tons of background vocals and vocal layering that took place in that song….the only thing Beyonce could have probably done in 15 minutes was a demo of the lead vocal so she could take it with her and record the whole thing with her engineer on her own time.

    The background vocals ALONE on that track must have took upwards of two hours.

    • TheElusiveLamb June 5, 2015

      Not necessarily true. If this was the 90’s, then I would agree with you, but engineering has taken the place of background singers and multiple takes. All she had to do was record the background one time and the engineer was able to copy and paste it throughout the entire track, multilayer it while tweaking the key of her voice on each track creating flawless harmonies. That’s no shade, it’s just the way that music is recorded now.

      • mike June 5, 2015

        I’m an engineer which is why i’ve said this.

        Recording vocals take time especially songs like this. A song like My Heart Will Go on could be recorded in one take.

        Beyonce did allllllll the background vocals on Sweet Dreams!

        15 minutes is BEYOND AN EXAGERRATION!

      • Tali June 5, 2015

        it is NOT possible to record a song in 15 minutes. As someone who personally works at a studio with some of the best, perfect pitch artists…15 minutes wouldn’t even allow enough time for Beyonce to listen back to the vocals she recorded after each take. I am sure Beyonce did it quickly, probably in an hour and perhaps Rico Love was being facetious and said 15 but as someone who works with professionals, it’s just not possible. Even if Beyonce didn’t playback her vocals for a listen, every studio has quirks that happens before recording, during recording after and etc. While yes it is possible to record something in a key, tweak the key and create flawless if you mean robotic and unnatural vocals, anyone who is used to a studio or has an engineering ear can hear that this is NOT what Beyonce is doing. She records all of her background harmonies. Now what probably DID Happen is that the lead vocal was probably recorded in 30 minutes but then again, I’ve had great singers with good pitch in a studio and the song took 45mins to an hour to do WITHOUT background vocals. And then take in consideration that Beyonce does not know the lyrics of the song so she would most likely be reciting off a paper or listening by ear.

      • Tali June 5, 2015

        And furthermore to add to what I just said…Here Rico Love states it took 30 minutes. I’m willing to bet the only thing he remembers is that it was quickly done, but the record was definitely not recorded in 15 minutes.

        “Sweet Dreams” was done on the second day I worked with Beyoncé. The first session I did with her was a song called “Save The Hero.” The second session she was like seven hours behind because of the weather. That was the same night JAY Z and Mary J. Blige were opening up their tour in Miami. Beyoncé came down. She was in full Beyoncé mode and was on her way to the concert, but stopped by the studio just to apologize for missing the session. She wasn’t really there to hear music, because she had to be at JAY’s show. I asked if I could just play one record. She heard it and looked at her cousin Angie and was like “How much time do I got left?” Angie said she only had like an hour. Beyoncé took her earrings and heels off and went in the booth. The record was done in about 30 minutes.

    • londontru June 5, 2015

      You can record a lead vocal demo in 15minutes. Which is likely what happened. Then the song is re-recorded at a later date. the demo “beautiful nightmare” leaked online. Then when the demo was cleared. Beyonce would have recut it added harmonies and really made the song her own.

      Sam smith, re recorded stay with me about 7 times until the final vocals were piece to together for the final mix.

      • Faf June 5, 2015

        But why does it matter how old is this song ?

    • You tried June 5, 2015

      @Mike someone sounds a little mad and bitter if RICO LOVE the one who wrote the song and also was the ONE INSIDE the studio when it took place and also SAID that it took 15minutes let it be ! WERE U THERE.. DID U WRITE IT! Was it a RUMOR or was it SAID BY ACTUAL PEOPLE THAT WERE ACTUALLY THERE LOL HAVE A SIT PLEASE LMAO

    • Jessica June 5, 2015

      They write anything about Beyonce. Was this really worth writing about?

      • Danny Bey June 5, 2015

        You read it tho….

        ☕️????

      • jamon June 5, 2015

        If Beyonce went to a lunch or a Basketball game, TGJ would write a post about it. They stay up her Ass. She probably never even heard of this website.

    • truth(nicki the reason AI is cancelled and Meek playn ha!!) June 5, 2015

      Chiiiile rest! Fantasia, Faith, Patti, Aretha all do it in one take.

    • bash June 5, 2015

      In another article Rico stated hr is also on the background vocals… And yes you can record a some in 15mins…not mixing etc…but to record vocals in 15mins which is what he said is possible… Then again YOu weren’t there…

    • Aj June 5, 2015

      Probably meant the first rough cut. I’m sure she went back and redid the track many times after.

      • truth(nicki the reason AI is cancelled and Meek playn ha!!) June 5, 2015

        Fu ck u

    • AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig June 5, 2015

      ‘Sweet Dreams’ was originally leaked a day after it’s recording in March 2008, under the title ‘Beautiful Nightmare’ prior to the IASF release. That version had less layering and was a demo so I believe that is what Rico is referring to.

    • Bets June 6, 2015

      Thank You – everyone needs to get real with Beyonce! What is real and she doesn’t expand is her creativity – she is extremely artistic and this seems to get lost in all the fake hype.

      Be yourself Beyonce!

    • A-natural June 7, 2015

      i’m also a recording engineer, writer, and vocalist who has completed a song in 15 minutes before, full background vocals and leads. Sweet Dreas actually contains vocals pre-recorded by Rico Love so Beyonce just added her leads and doubled his vocals. Of course, this is not for everybody. The artist, producer, and engineer must be very skilled to do quality work that fast…in this case, they all were. Most of what you hear on the final song was probably done in post-editing and mixing.

  2. Cake like Lady GaGa June 5, 2015

    But, even if that’s the case, self-titled is still stalled at 3.8m WW. The gimmick couldn’t help it anymore.

    • Lolz June 5, 2015

      Thats more than double artpop has sold>>>>_/

    • Rosie June 5, 2015

      …but Fagpop has been stalled at 1.8 million for over a year? You tried it. And DON’T come at me with the label-made “2.5 million!!1” receipt because in that case UV sold 2 million+ also according to Interscope.

    • african music lover June 5, 2015

      Replace satellite with disapper then i agree with you

    • african music lover June 5, 2015

      Sorry,that was meant for dirty laundry,,But i too cought the sublimal shade

    So!

  4. LB June 5, 2015

    I believe she recorded it in 15 min, I mean B’Day was done in 2 weeks and it is her worst album to date. She makes better music when she puts in the effort.

    • Ms Beykim wants Bieber,One Direction,Miley Cyrus,Gaga and Beyonce (I wanna marry Bieber) June 5, 2015

      Then rihanna must be making her songs in half a second cause it lacks all the above

      • LB June 5, 2015

        No, the intelligence level of Beyonce’s lyrics is much more interesting.

      • OMG Logic!!! June 5, 2015

        More than half of Rihanna’s #1s are features. That is what she is doing right.

      I know. So many other people have redorded songs this fast. It would be a little worth the mention if she had written it at least 🙂

  9. Brandys Starr June 5, 2015

    Someone like Beyonce has the vocal ability to record it in 15 minuites. Whiles others like Rihanna probably have to re record it dozens of times.

        Disappear is up there too. Im not too fond of scared of lonely besides her vocals.

  16. Barb-wire June 5, 2015

    Maybe Rihanna can take notes and stop the shitt she’s been dishing out lately.

      • Ciara The Flop June 5, 2015

        Dann!!! Barb-Wire just got clocked!!! You better scalp her, LB!!!

  17. Ciara The Flop June 5, 2015

    15 Minutes??? Isn’t this what Bey’s #1 bûtt kisser Sam refer to as “microwaveable pop” music!!!

    • Pray for #R8 June 5, 2015

      Microwaveable pop refers to music that follows a cookie cutter “add water and stir” formula to a hot 100 hit by being hot for a second and then no one cares. Up tempo, catchy chorus, dance breaks, basic vocals, repetitive, generic ….It’s not about the time it took to lay down some vocals.

      • King B June 5, 2015

        ^^^^ class dismissed ???????????? thank you

      • Ciara The Flop June 5, 2015

        Again, that refers to Beyonce’s music. Pray for another surprise album because she can’t get hit singles no more without a Grammy performance. You do that!

      • Lolz June 5, 2015

        Critics and accolades disagree though. So go stuff your opinion up your ass please and thanks because its irrelevant.

      • Legend B June 5, 2015

        Queen Bey is probably the only biitch in the game that doesnt need #1s or top 10s to go platnuim or double platnuim. So nice try R****** Biitch

      • OMG Logic!!! June 5, 2015

        Your definition of Microwaveable Pop literally fits this song to a T.

    • King B June 5, 2015

      I hate you for that jab at sweat dream cuz it actually one of her best uptempo but you got it right with that lil’l list I would add even if it was a special edition song Save the Hero( I want that song played at my funeral)

    • Dirty Laundry June 5, 2015

      UMMMM b**** music preference is SUBJECTIVE. Ive heard those songs and sweet dreams is still my fave OK? But DEAD at you admitting to buying the deluxe the amount of time you spend trashing Beyonces music.

      • LB June 5, 2015

        Your music taste is atrocious ans tragic.

        When have I denied buying Beyonce’s music? How does that egg on your face taste?

  24. JOHNVIDAL June 5, 2015

    And this is news because…
    TGJ´s obsession with Beyonce is beyond fan site. I think they need psychological help 🙂
    I see stories of this type all the time, about how quickly a song came together and all that. And not only cecorded fast, but also written fast. You know, by singers-SONGWRITERS 🙂

    • Legend B June 5, 2015

    Sounds like it. I guess, there’s no back vacals or vocal layers in the song. It’s was a poor man’s Please Don’t Stop The Music/Disturbia…
    .
    This is the reason why Beyonce will never be GREAT, she put very little effort in her music. Recording a song in 15 mins and a whole album in 2 weeks is nothing to brag about. The pest can get mad all they want, but this is why Rihanna have better music and why her music sell and chart better.

    • JOHNVIDAL June 5, 2015

      LMAO
      But Rihanna puts even less effort in her music hun. She is no songwriter (just like Beyonce), but it´s even worse because Rihanna (so far) has never cared about the concept of an album or anything. Just the hottest producers making songs for her, ready for radio. At least Bey has demonstrated she likes to choose songs trying a concept or something.

      Neither of them are great musically obviously (remembers a few Beyonce crazy fans going nuts because a real musician won Album of the Year at the last grammys 🙂 ).

      • Lolz June 5, 2015

        Rihannas is the one known for being lazy both creativley and musically. Beyonce slays at her craft which is performing and she shows a lot of input. Rihanna slays at fashion. Read between the lines.

      • Lolz June 5, 2015

        musically and on stage*

      • JOHNVIDAL June 6, 2015

        What are you talking about? I was kind of defending Beyonce LOL I didn´t talk about performing skills.

      • Lolz June 6, 2015

        Beyonce musicality is fine. She is no worse off that someone like Whitney who I’m sure you would never label as ‘not great musically’, in fact she has more input. Not everyone has to be a songwriter and play 1000s of instruments to be a good musically. The award was for ‘album of the year’ not ‘musician of the year’ so that shade is boring.

      • JOHNVIDAL June 6, 2015

        Your argument is invalid. I wasn´t talking about Whitney Houston (no she wasn´t a songwriter, voice alone made her legendary in a natural way, it was too much), I wasn´t talking about performing. We were talking about MUSIC and songwriting. Beyonce is not great at that. End of the story. I said Rihanna is worse. So I don´t know what your problem is. There are a lot of artists out tehre who are better musicians than Beyonce. It´s as easy as that. She is one of teh top performers though. But we were not talking about that.

    • Lolz June 5, 2015

      Loooool you’re officially a delusional Rih stan.

  31. Iamdiego June 5, 2015

    Them demo is the same as the official mix… The only difference is the title, “turn the lights on” at the begging of the song and the Adlibs at the end. She could have recorded the song in 10 minutes if she heard it prior to showing up at the studio. If you listen, Rico love is singing the harmonies in the chorus. If she had more time it would sound 2x better. Some of you muiscal genius’s need to stop investing in them beats and get better (cheaper) studio headphones lol. It’s either that or yall can’t hear. I love Disappear btw.

  32. Centurion June 5, 2015

  35. Gee June 5, 2015

    What makes this news worthy Sweet Dreams is seven years Beyoncé has released much more material since then. But I guess anything for this blog to post a story about Beyoncé. Also correct me if I am wrong doesn’t Rico Love have his own project out right now and shouldn’t his focus be promoting his own project. Just a thought.

  36. RihYonce June 5, 2015

    Sweet dreams is definitely one of bey’s best songs! & I am… Is in my opinion beyonces best albums lyrically, musically, and the diversity was out of this world I definitely want her next album to kind of run off on that its perfect for this time ! But TGJ don’t post nothing else about bey until it’s about some new music because Bey-Hydration is killing me & I get annoyed with her if she’s not releasing any music lmao

  37. RihYonce June 5, 2015

    • Legend B June 5, 2015

      Kii Kii I knew it ???????????????????? I knew Hoeianna Raggedy Ass Broke Ass stans would be in here pressed. Yea Sweet Dream was along with her last #1 single but that album was multiplatnuim. When was the last time Hoeianna so those numbers??? R****’s music is great bwahahahahahahaha. Where the hell did that come from. Queen Bey has the awards to prove hers is better kii.

    I thought Beyoncé wrote Sweet Dreams… Even as a fan I know she hasn’t written since dangerously in love

    It cracks be up when holes is poked into Beyonce’s “legacy”, The Pest thinks that bringing up Rihanna feels in the holes.

      Stfu Ugly

    • Lolz June 5, 2015

      You brought up Rihanna first though.
      Beyonces legacy remains in tact no matter what you and your delusional little rants say. Worry about your faves career going down at 26 not Beys musicality which is fine.

  41. @JanetCIARA_ June 5, 2015

    That’s my song….

  42. CherylSoldierr June 5, 2015

    Deathhhh at mark getting dragged. You cannot come for hey when your fave can’t write a song and flops worse than artpop when she “tries to be creative.” I am screaming.

    • KING B June 5, 2015

      We dont need a Cheryl stan to help us. Leave it for the Beyhives that can drag his ‘ass.

      • CherylSoldierr June 5, 2015

        And we don’t need more gravatarless trolling bottoms on this site. ????

      • Mark111 June 5, 2015

        When the lonely Cherry Coke stan gets kicked out of the hive. Lol

      • LB June 5, 2015

        SCREAMS, from one octave session to one woman army 🙂

  43. Lolz June 5, 2015

    You come in as Rihanna stan comparing and trying to critique musicality, therefore, whatever you say about Beyonces muscality will make your fave look 10x worse lol.

  44. KING B June 5, 2015

    Mar-kaitlyn is seething. LMAO

  45. Royalkev June 5, 2015

    Love the song! The video never gets old!

  46. JazThatBoi June 5, 2015

    Yea. I went back and listened to the demo version “Beautiful Nightmare” and its highly possible that was done in 15 min. You this not much layering at all. All of the harmonies are done by a male voice. She probably with through the whole 3 times at most just to get it down. So yea its possible folks

  47. Legend B June 5, 2015

    The Queen is so Legendary! Rico was the one in the studio, not u pressed biitches. Sweet Dream never gets old. I still love that song! One of the best song off IASF thats sitting pretty @ 3.12 million. Hoeianna cant do those numbers with #1s. How sad ????????????????????????????

  48. bria June 5, 2015

    Beyonces legacy is a thirsty cut and paste plagiarist who how did vanity fair put it “pisitions herself as the queen of all things”

    Positions herself being the key phrase, its already written

    • Legend B June 5, 2015

      Biitch STFU

    • bria June 5, 2015

      Thumbing down the truth that is what is written, positions herself
      Mj didn’t, Aretha didnt, true legends don’t, con artist, posers, thirst buckets do

  49. bria June 5, 2015

    And mark is correct attempting to tear down rihanna does not build up befraudce it just adds extremely jealous and insecure to the adjectives that describe her and threatened by others who were supposedly beneath the self positionef queen,lol,smh…legacy what a joke

    • Legend B June 5, 2015

      Biitch you’re the joke.

  50. ajm265 June 5, 2015

    He is such a liar and full of s***. The song is at least three minutes long. You have to stack the background and the any adlibs. Tell that to someone who has never produced and written a song. This is the same bull neyo was trying to sell with irreplaceable and the 30 minute recording session he had with her.

  51. oilofsalt June 6, 2015

    Beyonce gets so much slack for no reason! Ever listened to that Debut that still shits all over any album released by Rihanna,Katy,Kelly Rowland,Kelly Clarkson and any other female artist who debuted during the 2000’s? Beyonce is queen and you haters will f****** deal. This is coming from someone who wasn’t a big Beyonce fan until Bday!From her 2nd album ALBUM on Beyonce has destroyed her so called competition!Fergie and Gwen are flops now especially Nelly!What’s really surprising about her out doing the other chicks from her 1st and 2nd album eras? Taylor is only slaying because she is a white female pop star in the very racist United States of America! If Taylor was black she’d be a flop too!All the other black artist shine because they came out before 2005! Rihanna has her singles but what else does she have? Most of the artist who debuted during her Destiny’s Child phase are flops now and she’s still here. Plus Beyonce has always been as killer singer so really is it a surprise she could knock vocals out in 15 minutes? Think of how many artist debuted in 2003 , but are flops now! Beyonce deserves all types of praise for being in the game 12 years later and still being a star! She’s the only artist from 2003 that has a strong following!

      @oilofsalt I see no lies!!! ????????????

  52. You wanna love it right bettor like you do then my funky money June 6, 2015

    It looks like it was a demo 15 min first for Beyoncé Carter knowles however it’s an old song and it still nice

  53. Bets June 6, 2015

    What is real is Beyonce’s artistic ability – she is extremely artistic and needs to concentrate on this to enhance her career. First Thing – Fire your PR people!
