People Who Are Addicted To Music
With fans still awaiting official word on when they will hear Beyoncé‘s next album, a version of her sparkling, summery love song “Standing On the Sun” has hit the Net.
The sexy song was first heard in a H&M commercial in April. Then she played it live, giving fans a fuller taste, during a tour stop in Antwerp, Belgium, on her Mrs. Carter Show world tour on May 31 when she closed out that leg of her jaunt.
Full of heavy breathing (both male and female), steel drums, claps, island-tinged synths and seductive lyrics, Beyoncé sets out to get her man all fired up on the Sia-penned tune. One fan @G3mm4_L3igh, noted that the song is giving off major “summer vibes” after it picked up steam on Thursday (June 27) after first leaking last week.
“Can you feel the heat on my skin?/ Can you feel all my loving?/ You and me we’re standing on the sun,” she sings on the steamy chorus.
While some fans are unsure just how complete this unconfirmed version is, they are feeling the groovy vibe. “Standing on the sun makes me want to dance on the beach with a Bahama mama in my hand just basking in the island breeze,” @YesItsmeMaria tweeted.
@noellekurtz added, “20 min early to work which means I can listen to standing on the sun 4 more times! thank you [queen] bayonse for this blessing today!!!”
Taking a cue from the song’s flirty vibe, one fan, @DiamondZolanski, used the leak as a chance to flirt with her favorite One Direction member, writing, “@zaynmalik Can you feel all my loving? You and me, we’re standing on the sun.”
Still with no word on when an official song will be released from Bey (though her hubby Jay-Z will drop his album Magna Carta Holy Grail next week), the leak only made some of the BeyHive more anxious.
@howvery_ wrote, “Standing On The Sun is lovely. Not sure it’ll satisfy her fans who’ve been waiting a millennium for this album, but still.”
Beyoncé will resume her tour on Friday in L.A. at the Staples Center, where perhaps she will bust out the tune. Earlier this week, Queen Bey confirmed she’d be extending the trek right through the end of the year. She’ll hit South America in September, take October and most of November off, before landing back in North America again on November 30 in Vancouver. She’ll play L.A., Las Vegas, Chicago and New York before wrapping up again on December 20 in Boston.
