Confession time, y’all: Beyonce’s “Party” has grown on me since it leaked back in June. While Bey’s layered vocals still sound slightly strained, they’re way too addictive to disregard. And the beat? Good lord. It’s such a hit that it hurts, and that’s probably why it’s grown on me. Or maybe it’s because it’s on the radio at least once every hour.
So it’s with that in mind that I’m digging the song’s official remix. It might replace Andre 3000’s typically great guest feature with one from J. Cole, but hey, anyone can sound good over this beat. And not only that, but Cole’s vocals, however brief, are a welcome complement. I just wish Kanye West never said the whole “swagoo” thing. [Rap Radar]
