Beyonce’s platinum edition box set of her self-titled album, Beyoncé: Platinum Deluxe that releases early this week and two songs from the release dropped late last week making Bey fans feel blessed just a little bit early.
Earlier this month, Bey’s team shared that the limited edition box set would feature two new singles, and four unreleased remixes with collaborators Kanye West, Nicki Minaj and Pharrell Williams and one unannounced feature. The two singles that were recently leaked were Bey’s new tracks “7/11” and a snippet of “Ring Off.”
“Ring Off” is a track that is sure to send news hubs reporting that Bey’s marriage to rapper Jay-Z is on the brink of disaster with lyrics like, “Until you had enough, then you took that ring off/You took that ring off/ So tired of the lies and trying and fighting and crying/ You took that finger."
However, that isn’t the case. The 70s soul-sampling track, “Ring Off” is actually a creatively constructed track of reminiscent pain and an uplifting ode that tells the story of her mother’s broken marriage to her father.
“Mama, I understand your many sleepless nights. When you think about father/and how you tried to be the perfect wife...I wish it didn’t hurt at all,” Bey sings.
Beyoncé: Platinum Deluxe is now available for download on iTunes.
