Twenty-four hours ago, the Internet heard 30 seconds of Beyonce’s newest single “Ring Off” and speculations flew as to what the song was actually about. Now, just 24 hours later, Queen Bey has released the full version of the heartfelt single, which is dedicated to her mother, Tina Knowles.
On the up beat song, Beyonce sings honestly about all the years of love, loyalty and sacrifice Tina gave to her husband and family, along with all the times Tina had to smile through the tears. Now that Miss Tina took her ring off, she’s happier, more successful and has a chance to enjoy life on her terms.
This song along with “7/11” will be featured on Beyonce: The Platinum Edition, which will hit iTunes next week. The double-disc CD includes 14 songs and 17 videos from Beyoncé’s platinum self-titled visual album along with a live performance DVD from her Mrs. Carter World Tour plus a slew of unreleased songs.
Beyonce’s ends the beautiful musical tribute with Tina’s speech from the Texas Women Empowerment Foundation.
