Beyonce, ‘End of Time’ From ’4′ LP — Exclusive Listen + Photo

Columbia

The-Dream and Beyonce make a stellar team and their collaboration on ‘End of Time’ is a slap in the face for anyone doubting their musical chemistry.

The duo — along with two ‘Run the World (Girls)’ beatmakers, Diplo and Switch — jointly produced the percussion-heavy number, which commences with a militaristic beat driving the track into its rhythmic lane six seconds in. Before Bey gifts listeners with her smooth vocals, a muted phrase that sounds oddly similar to “Don’t f— with me, don’t f— me” serves as the background.

“Come take my hand I won’t let you go/ I’ll be your friend, I will love you so deeply/ I will be the one to kiss you at night/ I will love you until the end of time,” the blonde-haired chanteuse sings over the marching band-like production with an assist from the Superpower Horns — a six-member group playing saxophones and trumpets.

Her formula hasn’t changed much; Beyonce once again proves she can move from pop ballads to bold numbers like this with ease.

The BoomBox will release the last exclusive track from Beyonce’s ’4′ LP Wednesday, completing the full album listening experience on June 22. ‘I Care,’ ‘Best Thing I Never Had,’ ‘Rather Die Young‘ and ‘Love On Top‘ have already made their debut.
