Beyoncé Drops Remake of Frankie Beverly’s “Before I Let Go” and we Love it!

New Queen B Track is a Revamp of Soul Classic

R Dub!, host – Sunday Night Slow Jams

I’m old school. I hate to admit it, but I rarely get excited about new music. What can I say, I’m a 90’s kid: I was there when Jodeci, Boyz II Men, Snoop and 2Pac were new artists dropping new, groundbreaking music. Call me old, but today’s music–at least in the R&B world–doesn’t even come close to our jams from back in day.     

But today I got a little excited.

Behold, Beyoncés version of 1981 soul classic from Maze and Frankie Beverly, “Before I Let Go.” You’re gonna want to turn this up.

It’s hard for anyone to do justice to Frankie’s original, but we loved this one. It still holds on to the original foundations of the song, with just enough of a new twist to make it fresh.

Beyoncé surprise-released the song today, that serves as both the closing credits song to her new Netflix documentary/concert film Homecoming and a studio bonus track to her unannounced companion LP Homecoming: The Live Album.

About R Dub!

Host, producer and creator of Sunday Night Slow Jams, R Dub! started the show when he was just 16 years old, at a tiny AM radio station in the middle of the desert. Today, Sunday Night Slow Jams is heard on over 170 radio stations in 14 countries. When he's not Slow Jammin' stateside, R Dub! can probably be found on an airplane headed somewhere new: his goal is to see all 193 nations on earth, and he's already seen over 100.
