Beyoncé’s version of “In Da Club” made its way onto several mixtapes after being released a couple of weeks ago, but it never quite made its way into the clubs as a dancefloor favorite.
Still, there’s good news for anyone jonesing to shake their jelly to the sounds of Jay-Z’s Bonnie at a favorite hot spot. Beyoncé’s father and manager, Mathew Knowles, said they’re choosing between two songs as the first single for her solo LP, Dangerously in Love, now due in June. According to Knowles, both tracks are geared toward the club, and whichever one wins out should be out by the first week of May.
Knowles said his daughter’s “In Da Club” was just a buzz cut and will not be on the album, but he said to look for guest appearances by Sean Paul, Missy Elliott and Jay-Z. In fact, B’s Clyde stepped a little outside the hip-hop realm and wrote two R&B songs for the album. One will definitely be included on the LP.
R. Kelly also contributed to Dangerously in Love, according to a spokesperson for the R&B crooner. Knowles would only confirm the aforementioned artists, but he did admit that Beyoncé was either in talks with or had worked with a few other artists.
