Hear The Inevitable "Best Thing I Never Had" Dance Remix

Maybe it’s because we live in a culture where art is constantly derived from preexisting material, or maybe it’s because Beyoncé’s second single isn’t that great (boom, said it: should have been “Countdown” or “End of Time”). Regardless, “Best Thing I Never Had” is on the path to getting reworked more times than Heidi Montag on a plastic surgeon’s operating table, proving the message behind the piano-heavy kiss-off speaks to the masses, much like the drunken late night confessions of Drake’s “Marvin’s Room.” (Of course, empowerment and progress are what great dance tracks are made of, right? Not sexual innuendo, pulsating synths and monotonous beats that carry you into the wee hours of the morning?) Friday we gave you the first crack by K.Michelle, whose angry and emotional “Worst Man I Ever Had” served more as catharsis than a contagious celebration. Today brings us the Gareth Wyn Club Mix, which is much more straightforward (no lyrical changes) yet injects B’s creation with an extra shot of Red Bull (or better yet, Four Loko). At almost seven minutes, the exuberant track is long enough to be the soundtrack to your next marathon dance party and breakfast the morning after. Get your dance on, below.
