Pass Or Play? The Dream & Beyonce Get “Turnt” For His New Single
While it might have been a bit unnecessary, we can see why singer/songwriter The Dream publicly distanced himself from Keyshia Cole after she criticized Beyoncé’s “Bow Down.” He knows King Bey is that money maker and it would be career suicide to go against the machine. So, it really comes as no surprise at all that Beyonce’s featured on The Dream’s latest album IV Play. After all, The Dream says she’s family. You know black folk love a play cousin. Anyway the song, “Turnt,” also features 2 Chainz and gives all parties involved a chance to display their less than professional, (read: ratchet) sides. (Not that The Dream and 2 Chainz ever stray too far from that anyway.)
Though the song is called “Turnt” don’t expect a head banger. It has more of a winding, slow grind feel. In the song Beyoncé confronts a potential suitor: “Talking ’bout you gon’ kill it/beat it up till I black out.”
And then The Dream comes in talking about what he and the ladies want in a man or woman. “I need that black leather, when it’s hot outside, in the summertime. She need that cocky, ready to back…”
He even goes to so far as to explain how the ladies approach him: “She said you the reason why all of these cute girls got babies.”
Ha! He ain’t never lied. He does tend to reproduce with very attractive women…and then dip. Ratchet indeed.
