Beyonce’s ‘Bow Down/I Been On’ Remix With Bun B, Scarface & Co. Premieres


Last week a reporter at Fox revealed that a remix to Beyonce’s new single “Bow Down/I Been On” was on the way featuring Houston rappers Bun B, Scarface, Willie D, Slim Thug, Kirko Bangz and Lil KeKe, and turns out it was true. Bun B debuted the “I Been On” remix on Friday via Houston radio station The Box, making a soundcloud stream available shortly afterwards.

The track features Bun B, Z-Ro, Willie D, Slim Thug, Scarface, Lil KeKe but no Kirko Bangz. Before dropping the song, Bun B gave some love to the featured artists, also writing, “This for Pimp C. Screw. H Town. PA.”

The original track, which features production from Hit-Boy, Timbaland and a host of others, plays out in two parts. On the first, Beyonc√© commands her female adversaries to praise all that she’s done, singing to them “bow down bitches.” The “I Been On” half of the track finds her in full-on rap mode, however, spitting bars in a slow, pitched-down style of rhyme patterned after DJ Screw’s syrup-soaked mixtapes from the 1990s. Bey also shouts out Geto Boys rap vet Willie D. and pays respects to the late Pimp C of UGK.
