Beyoncé’s ‘Thique’ Was Created 8 Years Before ‘Renaissance’ Came Out

<p><a href="https://www.cheatsheet.com/tag/beyonce/">Beyoncé</a>‘s album <em><a href="https://ift.tt/Fi0U3Ey> </em>has gotten people everywhere back on the dance floor after two years of lockdown. It’s quickly become one of the most beloved albums of 2022. But one of the songs on the album was first produced all the way back in 2014 after the release of her self-titled visual album. </p> <figure class="wp-block-image size-full"><img loading="lazy" width="1200" height="798" src="https://ift.tt/2QrKySU" alt="Beyonce, who changed a term in her song 'Heated'" class="wp-image-3103667" srcset="https://ift.tt/2QrKySU 1200w, https://ift.tt/6zs8kLR 150w, https://ift.tt/SmR8QF2 640w, https://ift.tt/r5UgbzO 768w, https://ift.tt/wQHU8W7 1024w, https://ift.tt/PnELdu6 90w" sizes="(max-width: 1200px) 100vw, 1200px" /><figcaption>Beyonce attends the “Manus x Machina: Fashion In An Age Of Technology” Costume Institute Gala at Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 2, 2016 in New York City | Mike Coppola/Getty Images for People.com</figcaption></figure> <h2 id="h-beyonce-s-renaissance-has-been-the-album-of-summer-2022">Beyoncé’s ‘Renaissance’ has been the album of summer 2022</h2> <p>Beyoncé bucked her previous release strategies for <em>Renaissance</em>, as she announced the project with a month’s notice and released a single before its release, <a href="https://ift.tt/1LnvsH0 My Soul.”</a> The song would go on to top the Billboard Hot 100, becoming her eighth No. 1 on the chart. </p> <p>The album incorporates elements of house and disco music, with plenty of samples from nearly every corner of the music industry. And of course, because no disco album would be complete without a nod to Donna Summer, Bey sampled her hit song “I Feel Love” on the album’s closing track “Summer Renaissance.” </p> <figure class="wp-block-embed is-type-video is-provider-youtube wp-block-embed-youtube wp-embed-aspect-16-9 wp-has-aspect-ratio"><div class="wp-block-embed__wrapper"> <div class="jetpack-video-wrapper"><iframe loading="lazy" title="Watch Hit-Boy showcase making Beyoncé's "Thique"" width="925" height="520" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/77lYs0HgnoE?feature=oembed" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen title="Watch Hit-Boy showcase making Beyoncé's "Thique""></iframe></div> </div></figure> <p><strong>RELATED: <a href="https://www.cheatsheet.com/entertainment/beyonce-reportedly-doing-metoo-background-checks-renaissance-collaborators.html/">Beyoncé is Reportedly Doing #MeToo Background Checks on Her ‘Renaissance’ Collaborators</a></strong></p> <h2>Beyoncé’s ‘Thique’ was first created back in 2014</h2> <p>One of the album’s grittier tracks is “Thique,” produced by Grammy-winning producer Hit-Boy. In a 2022 episode of <a href="https://ift.tt/zISXLY7 Stone</a>‘s <em>Music Now</em> podcast, Hit-Boy recounted how he produced the beat for “Thique” back in 2014 and waited for Beyoncé to do something with it.</p> <p>“I had to sit on that beat for eight years!” he said. “That’s the way the game goes sometimes. I’ve had a lot of ups and downs in the game and certain people will perceive like, ‘Oh, where’s Hit-Boy been? What’s Hit-Boy been doing?’ But then I’m sitting on stuff like ‘Thique’ that just hasn’t materialized yet.”</p> <p>“Y’all don’t even know how ahead I really am,” he continued, teasing, “I’ve been holding onto legendary stuff, and there’s plenty more.”</p> <p>At the time, “Thique” was one of two beats that Hit-Boy gave Beyoncé. The other would go on to become the Nicki Minaj collab “Feeling Myself,” released later that year. </p> <figure class="wp-block-embed is-type-video is-provider-youtube wp-block-embed-youtube wp-embed-aspect-16-9 wp-has-aspect-ratio"><div class="wp-block-embed__wrapper"> <div class="jetpack-video-wrapper"><iframe loading="lazy" title="Hit-Boy Makes A Beat On The Spot | The Crate | All Def Music" width="925" height="520" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/FvwV8-ZQSOo?feature=oembed" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe></div> </div></figure> <p><strong>RELATED: <a href="https://www.cheatsheet.com/entertainment/beyonce-channeled-studio-54-with-her-renaissance-album-cover.html/">Beyoncé Channeled Studio 54 With Her ‘Renaissance’ Album Cover</a></strong></p> <h2>Beyoncé has worked with Hit-Boy many times in the past</h2> <p>Beyoncé has collaborated with Hit-Boy many times over the years. In addition to “Feeling Myself” and “Thique,” Hit-Boy also produced Beyoncé’s smash songs on her self-titled 2013 album “Flawless,” “Bow Down/I Been On,” “XO,” “Flawless,” “Jealous,” “Haunted,” as well as her <em>Lemonade </em>hit “Sorry.” </p> <p>Hit-Boy approaches all of his songs differently. With “Bow Down,” for example, he told Rolling Stone that he aimed to recreate the magic of “N****s in Paris,” the hit single he produced for <a href="https://ift.tt/a4ifovL West</a> and <a href="https://ift.tt/Fr0qD3E>. </p> <p>“I was basically trying to make a ‘N****s in Paris,’ female version,” he said of “Bow Down.” “With that bounce, with that synth. Obviously, you look at the lyrics, she’s talking crazy, talking rapper s***. So just to bring that energy out and go to her stadium shows and see the reaction is like, wow. The energy I was trying to convey really went over.”</p> <p><strong>RELATED: <a href="https://www.cheatsheet.com/entertainment/beyonce-secretly-revealed-title-renaissance-album-year-before-release.html/">Beyoncé Secretly Revealed the Title of Her ‘Renaissance’ Album a Year Before Its Release</a></strong></p>
