The-Dream‘s new song ft. his homie Beyonce and 2 Chainz, "Turnt" just hit the net. Decide if we love it inside…
After her own "Grown Woman" leak last night (Dream co-write that too), Beyonce has popped up on Terius’ newest leaked track "Turnt" with rapper 2 Chainz. Off his upcoming IV Play album (MAY 28th), the track opens with Bey’s vocals singing about undressing under candlelight and doing all the things that special someone likes.
Dream cruises over the track with a verse of his own, joins Bey in the background and on the chorus, there’s a few shout outs to Kelly & Michelle, and 2 Chainz comes in at the end.
Check it below:
DO WE LOVE IT?!
In addition to Kelly Rowland, The-Dream calls on another one of Destiny’s children for his album IV Play. On “Turnt,” Beyoncé taps into her ratchet side as she trades provocative lines with the “Single Ladies” hitmaker.
“People think I’m crazy, but I love you cuz you crazy too,” sings B, while proclaiming, “Turn up!”
And what would a ratchet record be without 2 Chainz? Tity Boi adds a verse about drinking his lady’s bathwater and umm, satisfying her (“I kill that thang, whoa manslaughter”).
The-Dream’s entire album, featuring Jay-Z, Big Sean, Pusha T, Gary Clark Jr., and more, is now available to stream on YouTube ahead of its May 28 release.
It looks like Beyoncé is not pregnant after all. Jay-Z took matters into his own hands to quash the baby rumors by responding to a congratulatory e-mail from the program director Ebro Darden of New York’s Hot 97. According to Darden, Jay-Z wrote:
“It’s not true. The news is worse than blogs.”
Reports emerged last Friday intending to use the pregnancy rumor to explain Bey’s recent ailments on tour, including a show she canceled last Tuesday in Belgium because of dehydration and exhaustion. In addition, multiple sources at the Met Gala told the New York Post that the pop icon was expecting.
It was bound to happen. After teasing with snippets and live performances, Beyoncé’s “Grown Woman” has leaked in full. The empowering female anthem, produced by Timbaland and co-written by The-Dream, can be heard in B’s Pepsi commercial and may appear on her upcoming album.
“It ain’t no fun if a girl can’t have none/ You really wanna know how I got it like that ’cause I got a cute face and my booty’s so fat,” sings Queen B over the marching tribal beat.

The wait is finally over. Beyoncé’s full-length “Grown Woman” release has hit the ‘Net.
Bey Hive rejoice, we won’t judge you.
A snippet of the Timberland-produced up-tempo track was featured in Bey’s Pepsi “Mirrors” commercial. The 31-year-old performed “Grown Woman” for the first time during the Paris stop of her The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour, last month.
In true Beyoncé form, there’s a lot here to make for the perfect “ladies anthem,” but still unlike anything she’s ever done. Content-wise “Grown Woman” could easily be akin to “Single Ladies [Put A Ring On It], ” but sonically it’s next level. Timbo meshes elements of Afro/Carribean-inspired drum beats that you can’t help but move to, with layered vocals; giving traces of a big-band influence.
Maybe it’s giving birth to Blue Ivy, firing her father, or clapping back at you “low life people,” but Bey has never sounded more secure, proclaiming : “I’m a grown woman, I do whatever I want.”
No argument there.

”It’s Not True, News Is Worse Than Blogs”
Jay-Z has apparently made it clear that Beyonce is not “with child.” Hot 97′s program director Ebro said that Jay flat-out denied reports that Beyonce is expecting another baby. Reports of a “confirmed” pregnancy surfaced late last week.
“I e-mailed on some, ‘Congratulations, send my love to the family, blah, blah, blah,’ and he hit me back and said it’s not true. [I hit him] like literally, it had to be Saturday afternoon. So it had been a whole 24 hours of ‘It’s true,’” Ebro explained. “I figured, I didn’t want to hit them [right away], you know, I figured they were in good sprits. It was just announced there’s a new child. [His direct quote was] ‘It’s not true, news is worse than blogs.’ That’s what the e-mail account said. [laughs]”

Looks like The Carters won’t be adding an additional member to the clan after all. According to Hot 97’s “The Realness,” the rumors that Beyonce and Jay-Z were expecting a second child are false.
“Jay-Z emailed Ebro over the weekend and told him the pregnancy rumor is false,” Peter Rosenberg said on the station’s morning show Monday (May 20) to start off the top hip-hop stories from the weekend.
The New York radio station’s program manager reached out to Hov to congratulate him and heard straight from the Roc Nation Sports agent himself that all the reports that his wife was preggers were premature.
“That’s crazy, too,” Ebro said. “I hit him to say ‘Congratulations man, send my love to the fam.’ Do I gotta buy a gift, what? It’s not true the news is worse than blogs.”
Beyonce’s diehard Beyhive exploded with excitement with the “news” that Blue Ivy would get a sister or brother and E! was the first to confirm the reports based on “multiple sources,” but no source is better than Bey’s hubby, who vehemently denied the rumors this morning.

Singer Shows Off Her Svelte Physique
Is Beyonce pregnant or isn’t she?
After rumors began swirling that the superstar’s recent show cancellation was a result of pregnancy, her team claimed the star was just resting due to exhaustion and dehydration. Then supposed insiders “confirmed” that the singer is, in fact, pregnant.
But now, it looks like Bey is doing her part to downplay or refute those “confirmations,” as well.
At the Milan show of her “Mrs. Carter” World Tour, wore a lot of the outfits that led to speculation she was trying to hide a baby bump. The wardrobe seemed to flaunt the fact that Beyonce looks slim and trim–in other words, not at all like a woman expecting her second child.
Beyoncé posted a message—which was quickly deleted from her Instagram—that criticized reports of her being pregnant with her second child with husband Jay-Z. What pics do remain are photos from her recent trip to Cuba to celebrate her fifth wedding anniversary. But of course the deleted message was seen by many, and saved, and it throws shots at the media.
The message that addressed the pregnancy rumors partly reads, “All I can do is sit back and laugh at all these low life people who have nothing better to do than talk about me.”
Needless to say one of Bey’s handlers probably told her that’s not the type of vitriol you should be sending the media’s way. Yesterday, E! Online reported that multiple sources confirmed that the singer was pregnant. The rumors of the bun in the oven caught fire when she arrived at the Met Ball wearing a Givenchy dress that hid her midriff, which in turn fueled all the speculation.
As for the photos of that controversial trip to Cuba, some of the flicks include a shot of her and some smiling children as well as one posing with her hubby. Check them all out, and the message she sent to the “low lifes,” in the gallery below.
There are no “do-overs” on the Internets.

Singer Seemed Stunned By the News
This week it was announced that Beyonce and Jay-Z are expecting their second child. And as surprised as fans and media were by the news that Blue Ivy will soon be getting a playmate, no one seemed to be more caught off-guard than Bey’s BFF Kelly Rowland.
When TMZ caught up with Kelly and asked about Bey being pregnant, her reply seemed to be genuine surprise.
“What?” she gasped.
But who really knows? It seems unlikely that Rowland wouldn’t know Beyonce was expecting and according to TMZ, she got considerably hush-mouthed when more questions were asked.
