Beyoncé ft. Lil Jon & Shawty Putt - Best Thing I Never Had (Remix)
Fresh off bringing down the house at the VMAs, and announcing that she’s pregnant with her first child, Beyoncé‘s got all eyes on her right now—and while collaborating with Lil Jon doesn’t seem like it would be the safest move on paper, in excution Best Thing I Never Had (Remix) is quite dope. Hooking up with DJ Kontrol behind the boards, Jon crafts a more upbeat piano groove to replace Symbolyc One‘s ivory-tinkling, and Shawty Putt contributes a brief guest verse on the back. How does it stack up against the original? You decide. In any case, you can find the album version of the record and much more on Bey’s 4 LP, out now in stores and online.
