Beyoncé & Andre 3000 - "Back To Black" (Amy Winehouse Cover)

A snippet of Beyoncé and Andre 3000's cover of the late Amy Winehouse's "Back To Black," surfaced about a week ago, and many people took offense to Bey and 3 Stacks touching the recent classic.

Stream the entire track in full below, which premiered on East Village Radio, and make your own decision. Do the "Party" collaborators do the the talented Amy Winehouse justice?

[Snippet] Beyoncé & Andre 3000 - "Back To Black" (Amy Winehouse Cover)

Soundtracks have fallen off over the years, but the musical counterpart to the upcoming film The Great Gatsby has a lot of mouths watering. Thanks in part to contributions from Jay-Z and Lana Del Rey, the most anticipated record on the soundtrack is undoubtedly Beyoncé and Andre 3000's cover of the Amy Winehouse classic "Back To Black."

Stream a 90 second snippet of their new take on the record, and be sure to cop the full version when the soundtrack hits stores on May 7.

Beyoncé - "I Been On" (Remix) ft. Bun B, Slim Thug, Z-Ro, Scarface, Willie D & Lil Keke

When Beyoncé dropped the dual single "Bow Down/I Been On," the leading track caused so much uproar that I feel the homage she paid to Houston on "I Been On" almost went overlooked.

Thankfully, Houston's all-stars Bun BLil Keke, Wille D, Slim ThugScarface and Z-Ro reprised the screwed up production to present the remix, which I'm sure will get a grip of spins tonight in the South. Listen to the official Houston remix of "I Been On" below, and hit the comments with your thoughts!

I wish Trae had a verse on this though!

Beyoncé - "Bow Down / I Been On"

Ever since dominating television sets since the Super Bowl and the premiere of her HBO documentary, fans have speculated that Beyoncé would have new music on the way in time for her forthcoming tour.

Well last night, Bey flexed her pass as King Bey as she dropped the dual tracks "Bow Down" and "I Been On." Though "Bow Down" was produced by Hit-Boy and "I Been On" is a joint effort between Polow Da Don, Timbaland, Sonny Digital and Planet VI, the common denominator is the subject matter which I loosely sum up as this: I've been the shit since birth and will continue to be forever. Question that if you're about that life.

Listen to Beyoncé's latest and don't be shy. Hit the comments with your thoughts!

[Video] Beyoncé's Super Bowl XLVII Halftime Show

If you missed the Beyoncé performance last night that was opened by the Baltimore onslaught of the 49ers in the first half of Super Bowl XLVII, gaze your eyes on vaseline coated thighs and power outage inducing lights below. Even if you watched it last night, join the party (and the Keyshia Cole slander) and watch Mrs. Carter and her Destiny's Child sisters Kelly and Michelle kill it in front of the packed stadium. Congrats Ravens!

[Video] Beyoncé Sings The National Anthem At The 2013 Presidential Inauguration

Today's presidential inauguration was definitely a beautiful sight to see. On Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, President Barack Obama was sworn in along with VP Joe Biden while a sense of "togetherness" permeated through the air.  Along with the moving speech from our President, one of the highlights of the inauguration was Beyoncé's performance of the National Anthem.

With the Super Bowl, an HBO documentary and a new album on the way, it seems that 2013 is about to be another amazing year for Queen Bey.

Filmed at the General Assembly at the United Nations, Beyoncé used her amazing vocals for an honorable cause as she performed 4 anthem "I Was Here" to commemorate World Humanitarian Day. Clearly, August 19th has passed, but that doesn't mean you can't use each day to do something good for others. Get inspired HERE!

Beyoncé - The Making of Revel (Pt. 1 & 2) [VIDEO]

From what I've seen on Twitter, Beyoncé gave a hell of a performance in Atlantic City this weekend at Revel. She's got one more show left and she's given you an all access look at the making of the show. Clearly she's in creative control of every aspect, and there's nothing love to see more than a woman making things happen.

Beyoncé Performs Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You," Lauryn Hill's "Ex Factor" & More [VIDEO]

I'm no Beyoncé stan (well maybe borderline), but I'm a little in my feelings that I couldn't be in Atlantic City for her return to the stage. Fortunately thanks to Miss Jia and Atlantic City Beats, it's like we were there in the crowd.

Watch below as King Bey pays tribute to the all time great Whitney Houston and performs "I Will Always Love You" before transitioning into "Halo."

Jay-Z - Glory feat. Blue Ivy Carter [Prod. by Pharrell]

Yesterday, Beyonce gave birth to her and Jay-Z's first daughter, Blue Ivy Carter. After having the pregnancy announced during a VMA performance, trending on Twitter for over a day since being born, and NOW having a song with her vocals on it at one day old, this baby's got one hell of an entrance to the world.

Jay-Z wasted no time to dedicate a song to his baby girl Blue Ivy, and I think it's just precious.  When's the album coming out tho Blue?

Beyoncé's Full Interview On 20/20 [VIDEO]

At times, it seems like the speculation surrounding Beyoncé's pregnancy has attracted more attention than some of the nation's biggest issues.  While there is a full out army behind King Bey and soon to be baby girl, there have also been those who have fed into the conspiracy theory that this is a complete publicity stunt.

Last night on 20/20, Katie Couric interviewed the expecting mother at NYC's Roseland Ballroom about the false pregnancy rumors, her Live At Roseland: Elements of 4 DVD, and cravings that come with the territory. Watch below!
