Almost a year after its release, Beyoncé’s album Renaissance is still giving us gold, and she just dropped a new version of one of its biggest hits. Queen B joined forces with Kendrick Lamar for the first time in seven years for a remix of “America Has a Problem”.
Beyoncé is currently busy with her all-stadium Renaissance World Tour, and she prepared a special surprise for those who had to miss it. She dropped a new version of “America Has a Problem”, with Lamar contributing such verses as “My momma told me that the money outgrew you / My horoscope said I’m really out my noodle, I’m troublin’, I’m puzzlin’, it’s sudoku / Say B, yes, America got a problem.”
Lamar most recently collaborated with Beyoncé on the song “Freedom” from her 2016 album Lemonade. He joined her for live performances of this song at the BET Awards and during her closing Formation Tour show and was very impressed by her work ethic.
“[I’ve learned] how particular to be about your music. She’s a perfectionist. Think about the BET performance. She was very particular – the lighting, the camera blocking, the transition from the music to the dancing. It was confirmation of something I already knew,” Lamar told The Rolling Stone.
