The songwriter of Beyonce’s latest smash hit ‘Best Thing I Never Had’ has released the original edit of the song, which substantially differs in production from the final cut.
Patrick “j.Que” Smith said on his website:
“I’m both thrilled & grateful that #TeamBey decided to make our song the single and it sounds awesome… But, this is what the song sounded like when we wrote it”. “I like this version… Mostly because it’s not a ballad.”
Going on, he claims he was inspired to pen the track by the drums from Lenka’s single ‘The Show’:
“The drums from “The Show” are what made me write to this song in the first place!”
Ouch! We think we prefer the final version anyway…
