Beyonce has already conquered pop, rock and soul (among many other genres) in her iconic career, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that she just added country to the list with an incredible acoustic remix of “Grown Woman”. As with most things Bey-related, the project is shrouded in mystery. It could be official or simply the work of an extremely talented fan with too much time on their hands.
All I know for sure is that the booty-poppin’ jam survives the genre transplant perfectly — always an indicator of songwriting quality. Oh and that B’s vocal is absolute perfection. Hearing Beyonce quip “bitch, I’m grown!” over a plucked guitar is one of my musical highlights of 2013. I just fell in love with “Grown Woman” all over again.
