Beyoncé's hot new single "Drunk In Love continues to stay on our radar with potentially the best rendition of the song yet with a surprising remix / cover from The Weekend complete with free download. The Weeknd breaks down the song and reconstructs it from the hot new background production to his completely new verses while still keeping the original hook lyrics in place. He manages to slip in some of his signature over the top lyrics like "the pussy's got some superpowers" and "I fuck my enemies" throughout. This is a complete change of pace from the recent festival remix of the song from Diplo from a couple days ago. Enjoy!
