The battle over Beck vs. Bey has been raging this week, after Kanye insisted in a post-Grammy interview that the Morning Phase singer give his Grammy for Album of the Year to Yonce. At this juncture, however, it's really time that this beef be squashed -- and what better way to do that than with a mashup that displays the musical genius of both Bs... and makes us want to dance like maniacs in the process.
I give you: "Single Loser (Put a Beck on It)," just in time for Valentine's Day.
The mashup, uploaded to SoundCloud by an artist named "Beckyoncé Knowles-Hansen," merges Bey's 2008 independent woman anthem, "Single Ladies," with Beck's breakthrough 1994 hit "Loser," a song replete with nonsense words and phrases that my friends and I liked to scream on the bus in elementary school. Also, you know, one of the top tracks of the '90s -- and all time.
The songs go surprisingly well together, merging into a weird, haunting jam that could be either uplifting to those braving V'Day alone -- or the soundtrack to an epic night of wanton bad decision-making. Get crazy with the cheeze whiz!
