Beyonce Drops Solo Version of ‘Part II (On the Run)’
Beyonce may be more than happy to help her man, Jay-Z on ‘Part II (On the Run),’ a song featured on his new album, ‘Magna Carta Holy Grail.’ However, it’s not too surprising that Queen B would release her own solo version of the track.
Starting off like the original duet, the melody does sound a bit softer on the bass side — probably because we’re not expecting Hov to spit some rhymes. But listening to Bey sing the whole track on her own, it easily changes from a hip-hop song to a smooth R&B track.
“I don’t care if we’re on the run / Baby, as long as I’m next to you / And if loving you is a crime / Tell me why do I bring out the best in you,” she sings.
This version highlights Beyonce’s heartfelt proclamation of love to her husband, but with a little Bonnie and Clyde twist with “I will hold your heart and your gun / I don’t care if they come.”
