If two’s a company and three’s a crowd, some forgot to tell Kanye West. On Friday (February 14), Yeezy added a new verse and beat to Beyoncé and Jay Z’s “Drunk in Love” duet on the song’s official remix.
The track, which premiered on AngieReview.com, starts with a foreign wail, and a slightly reworked instrumental before Kanye spews his X-rated thoughts and inner-most desires. “You will never need another lover/ ’Cause you a MILF and I’m a motherf—er,” West starts in a line that may or may not be a reference to fiancée Kim Kardashian.
Yeezy continues to make a number of thinly veiled references to Kimmy. “If you aint on sight, you on skype/ I put you on a bike, you bound girl,” he raps connecting the dots to his “Bound 2” music video, which featured himself and his bride-to-be simulating sex scenes while riding a motorcycle.
The proud beau also tosses in a few mentions of Kim’s voluptuous backside. “Let me remind you, you got a great future behind you,” he rhymes in a cheesy (but somehow charming) way.
Throughout his verse, Kanye gives us a private peak into his bedroom, taking cues from the Carters’ original love fest. There are differences though. As an alternative to Beyoncé’s favorite in-bathtub “surfboard” position, ’Ye adds his own touch. “That cowgirl, you reverse that cowgirl,” he instructs his lady after reminding her: “I ain’t a pastor/ Don’t do missionary.”
Vocally Bey and Jay’s portions remain as they did in the song’s original version, though West does play with the sequencing and adds cool effects like a “flashing lights” sound bite from his 2007 single of the same name. Ultimately it’s Yeezy who steals the show as the song’s third wheel.
