Beyonce's Vocals Get Trippy on James Blake's "Drunk in Love" Remix

Best New Artist GRAMMY nominee brings Bey like we've never heard her before

The overtly sexual "Drunk in Love" is a highlight off Beyonce's latest album and with a No. 12 peak on the Billboard Hot 100, it's her highest-charting single since 2009. Electronic producer/Best New Artist GRAMMY nominee/Chance the rapper roommate James Blake has been spending time with the record too, offering a trippy new remix of the track last night.

Blake revealed the synthy remix while hosting a BBC Radio 1 show, with the track now boasting a stark, dark, bass-heavy production featuring Bey's vocals heavily altered and severely pitched-down. The remix is a fun departure from the pristine, clean diva delivery we're used to hearing from Beyonce. But don't hold your breath for Jay Z's lines about "foreplay in the foyer"; Bey's hubby got cut from the mix. 

The remix further proves why we're so pumped Blake got a Best New Artist nom—alongside strong competitors Macklemore, Ed Sheeran, Kendrick Lamar and Kacey Musgraves—at the upcoming GRAMMYs.
