Beyoncé’s ‘Drunk In Love’ is still putting charts on fire (#2 added song on Pop radio this week) but she’s now readying the follow up from her latest self titled album. Mrs. Carter has picked ‘Partition’ as the next single from BEYONCÉ which will be going for radio adds in the coming weeks, although a number of stations are already playing it. The track was produced by Timbaland and in one of her vlogs explaining the making of the album, ‘Yonce had revealed the inspiration behind the “freestyle-like” vibe:
“I’m in the studio and I hear this beat and I hear this baseline, it has snaps and has 2 tracks. It reminds me of like Too $hort or E-40. It takes me back to being in my car teenager and it takes me back to when me and my husband first meet. He’s trying to scoop me and he thinks I’m the hottest thing in the world. I kinda had this whole fantasy of being in the car and this whole movie played in my head. I didn’t have a pen and paper, I just got to the mic I’m like ‘oh, press record.’”
