Singer/producer The Dream has teamed up with pop diva Beyoncé and rapper 2 Chainz on a new song named “Turnt”. A 90 second snippet of “Turnt” was released online today that features Beyoncé and The Dream’s verses. (2 Chainz is expected to appear on the full version of the song.)
“Turnt” is a mid-tempo, sexy song with a heavy bassline on which The Dream and Beyoncé sing about what they want to do with their lovers.
Beyoncé appears to be trying new things with the direction of her music projects this year. First, there were the snippets of “Bow Down” and “I Been On” that showed Beyoncé’s inner hood side. On “Turnt”, Beyoncé is singing lyrics like “beat it up ’til I black out” and then talking about “turning it up“, which further lets us know that this is not the pop Beyoncé that we’re used to hearing.
“Turnt” will be featured on The Dream’s upcoming album “IV Play” that is set to be released on May 28th on iTunes.
You can check out the snippet of “Turnt” below:
For right now, I can’t give this song a thumbs up or a thumbs down. I’ll wait until I hear the full version before I share my thoughts.

During a recent promo tour, Atlantic/CBE recording artist Sevyn Streeter paid a visit to the Detroit high school that was attended by the late singer Aaliyah. After the visit to the school, Streeter was inspired to pen an open letter to Aaliyah which she posted on her blog:
“From the bottom of my heart, I want to say THANK YOU & I LOVE YOU because you taught me it’s sexy to be cool and it’s cool to just be you!”
Streeter also paid tribute to her music idol by performing her own stirring rendition of Aaliyah’s 2003 hit “Come Over”.
You can check out Streeter’s acoustic performance of “Come Over“ below:
Kudos to Sevyn Streeter for paying homage to Aaliyah through the beautifully written open letter and her performance of Aaliyah’s “Come Over”. Aaliyah has always been one of my favorite artists and does not always get the props and respect that she deserves. Streeter’s tribute to Aaliyah was well done and very befitting.
What do you think of Sevyn Streeter’s version of “Come Over”?
