Sounds like the music of the summer will be of much tender choices,
We’ve got Beyonce, Kanye & Andre’ resonating through BlackVoices:

BlackVoices.comBeyonce continues to ramp up interest in her forthcoming album, ‘4’, with the release of her latest leaked single, ‘Party.’ The Kanye West co-production features cameos from Andre 3000 and Yeezy himself, and sounds like a potential song of the summer.

Beyonce mailed in an uptempo dance anthem when she dropped ‘Run the World (Girls)‘ and proved that she could emote in true R&B diva fashion with the follow-up ballad, ‘Best I Never Heard.’ But here on ‘Party,’ she nails an easy-breezy, soul vibe on this track co-produced by Kanye West and Consequence.

The laid back jam begins with a subtle Slick Rick sample of ‘La-Di-Da-Di’ and Yeezy sounding like he’s lounging in a beach chair with this sly line: ‘You a bad girl and your friend’s bad too/ You got the swag sauce, you dripping swagu.’

Launching into lyrics about being “so in love” and “music knocking till the morning light,” Beyonce’s idea of a party may have a not-so-innocent double meaning. Yet the track’s bright horn toots and light ’80s-era synths keep it from sounding like anything but a good old time.

Andre 3000, as he does on virtually every cameo appearance, almost steals the show. This time, he unravels a few cocky couplets: “Set the scene, 3000 degrees/ Ain’t worried about those f**k niggas over there, but they worried about me/ I got a homeboy named Butter/ and another homeboy, that nigga named Cheese/ F**k with me baby, I’ll make it milk till it drip down your knees.”

But ‘Party’ is still Beyonce’s show, soaring vocals and all. And the song does an even better job than the two previous singles at stoking anticipation for her upcoming album, ‘4,’ with is set for a June 28 release.

I don’t know about you, but I miss the fore mentioned few.
It is a necessity that we jam — so let’s do what it do.
