The world has been captivated by Beyoncé and Jay Z performing “Drunk In Love” live, first on the GRAMMYs and followed the week later by a Super Bowl party performance that went viral. Now the song we can’t get enough of lands a 7-minute remix.

This lovingly long rethink of the hit single comes from Detail, one of the track’s main writers and producers. Detail has previously said his post-production process was rushed more than he’d like, due to the nature of the surprise Beyoncé album release, but now that he’s had some time to play around he came up with this epic take on “Drunk In Love” that’s worth a listen for any member of the Beyhive. There are amplified handclaps, a more etheral/haunting vocal overlay on the second verse, strings (!) in an arrangement that completely changes the way the whole “surfboardt” section rolls out.

Something this version has that you might not hear elsewhere: an epic note hold from Beyoncé in LOOOOOOOVE, about 6:43. All in all, a stronger affair than Future‘s recent “Drunk In Love” remix.
