This Bey-Beck mashup is the best song we've heard all week
Remember last Sunday when basically everyone in these continental United States booed in unison as Beck won the Grammy for Album of the Year over Beyoncé? And remember when Kanye West almost pulled a “IMMA LET YOU FINISH” on Beck, but didn’t because yay mature, rebooted, self-aware, trickster 2015 Kanye? Well, however you feel about the triumph/snub, both artists are incredibly awesome and talented at what they do, and so when the Internet blessed us with this Beyoncé-Beck mashup of “All the Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)” and “Loser,” we took it as some sort of peace treaty.
And you guys. It’s really, really good. Like good-luck-getting-this-song-out-of-your-head good. And TBH, “Single Loser (Put a Beck on It)” is an anthem we needed post 2015 Grammys and pre-Valentine’s Day. It’s catchy. It’s hip. The title is unbearably clever. It’s a perfect marriage between hip-hop-pop and ’90s alt-rock. It sounds like Girl Talk, but dare I say . . . better? Basically, it’s everything.
The song was uploaded by “Beckyoncé” on Soundcloud yesterday, and already it’s broken our Internet (speakers). As of right now, it’s already gotten over 421,000 listens, so well done you Bey-Beck fan and mashup wizard, you.
Go ahead. Listen to “Single Loser (Put a Beck on It)” and don’t be too surprised when it gets stuck in your head.
