Beyonce teams up with producer/singer/rapper Boots once again for a new track called Dreams. The two previously worked on Beyonce’s latest self-titled album.
Boots spoke with Vogue and discussed how this latest collaboration came to be:
“I love that the song has me and what I’m doing in my realm and her and what she’s doing in hers, and it’s so completely opposite but they work incredibly together,” he says. “It’s just a really cool testament to our friendship and relationship to do something like this, and as natural as it was for it to exist in the way that it’s going to exist. I feel like I’ve been given my wings to fly. It’s the greatest kind of cosign you could get, from someone who truly, truly believes in you. As gifted and as brilliant as she is, and she is, to be able to believe in me in that regard is a really special thing.”
The song will be featured on Boots upcoming mixtape WinterSpringSummerFall but you can buy it right now here.
Music apps are all over Apple’s App Store and Google’s Play Store: Pandora, Spotify, Songza, Rdio, Rhapsody, the list goes on. Selecting one those can be a tough choice, especially when you have to pay for some and unfortunately, the choice got even harder with the introduction of the Beats Music app.
The Beats brand has gone beyond just headphones now. They’re in laptops, they make portable speakers and now they bring what they know best, music.
The Beats Music app is looking to change the music app landscape by being more than just that. The app goes deep than just asking you who your favorite artist is. The app learns your listening patterns. It knows when you get into a new artist and instead of presenting you with a playlist of artists similar to them, it give you their best work.
I spent a few days with the app (7 day free trail, 30 for AT&T customers) to get a better view of the app and see if the price of subscription ($10/month) was worth it.Note: My review is of the Android version of the app on a Nexus 5 phone
