Beyonce Delivers New Songs ‘7/11′ and ‘Ring Off’
Beyonce fans are waking up very happy this morning since the singer dropped the full version of '7/11' and another new track, 'Ring Off,' both featured on her forthcoming 'Beyonce: Platinum Edition Box Set.'
A snippet of '7/11' was released earlier this week. On the uptempo club banger produced by Bobby Johnson and Detail, Mrs. Carter details exactly how she gets down in the club.
"Clap, clap, clap, clap, clap it / Foot up, my foot up, hold up now my foot up," she sings. "Never drop that alcohol, never drop that alcohol /I know I'm thinking about alcohol... Man it feel like rolling dice, man it feel like rolling dice / seven eleven, seven eleven, seven twice, man, seven twice," she sings.
On the feel-good track 'Ring Off,' Beyonce tells the story of a mother -- most likely Mama Knowles -- who's fed up with her failed marriage. "Mama, I understand your many sleepless nights / When you sit and think about father, oh how'd you try to be the perfect wife," she sings. "You used to dress and fix your hair and you'd smile through the tears / In the mirror you would stare, and say a prayer ... So tired of the lies and trying, fighting, crying, took that ring off."
The 'Beyonce: Platinum Edition Box Set' arrives Nov. 25. Besides featuring the two new songs, remixes of 'Drunk in Love,' 'Run the World (Girls),' 'Partition' and 'Heaven' are also included. Jay Z, Nicki Minaj, Kanye West, Pharrell,and Mr. Vegas collaborate on the remixes too.
Plus, the box set will contain a DVD showing footage from B's Mrs. Carter Show World Tour, and a 2015 Beyonce calendar. Pre-order the effort now on iTunes.
