First thing first, did you SEE the music video?! CLICK HERE to watch maybe the sexiest display of Queen Bey ever!
Now, listen carefully to the background beats. Because banging on that bucket that you hear is Justin Timberlake!
Actually, we EXCLUSIVELY reported about when Beyoncé and her little drummer boy JT got into the studio together over a year ago!
And it was in that studio sesh that 'Yoncé was born!
B recently discussed the moment her new moniker and track title came to life, saying that her producer The Dream coined the nickname while Justin was pounding out the background jam!
"Dream actually came up with Yoncé. We were in the studio and Justin Timberlake started beating on buckets, so when you hear the beat, that’s literally a bucket and it was really organic, it reminded me of being in middle school during lunch breaks when you just start free styling and so we kept the production. We went back and forth and I was very adamant about keeping it organic because that whole feeling is what’s so beautiful about it and Dream started [singing], ‘Yoncé all on his mouth like liquor’ and I’m like what does that mean? But I love it. I think Yoncé is Beyoncé. Mrs. Carter is Yoncé. Sasha Fierce is Yoncé and I’m finally at a place where, as I said earlier, I don’t have to kind of separate the two anymore. We’re all one. It’s all pieces of me and just different elements of a personality of a woman because we are complicated.”
Oh, to be a fly on the wall in the studio that day!
