The 9th Single From Sasha Fierce?

Now honey, you better sit down and look around, 'cause you must have bumped your head!

Just when you thought Beyoncé had taken off her weave and hung up her heels for the final time in the Sasha Fierce era, the diva has squeezed out yet another single. "Why Don't You Love Me?" is currently sitting at #3 on the US Dance Chart thanks to sizzling remixes from Lost Daze, Jump Smokers and Karmatronic - among others - and is a strong contender for the top spot. I'm pretty sure this is just a club release to keep the gays happy and provide Solange with some much needed pocket money (she co-wrote the song) but I'm still shocked that they bothered. I guess Beyoncé had a spare five minutes and just thought what the hell. Whatever the reason, it's an inspired choice. "Why Don't You Love Me?" has been a favourite of mine from the beginning, probably because it positively reeks of my Sol-Angel. The track is a funkadelic explosion of 70s soul with a killer chorus and truly memorable lyrics. Think of this as Beyoncé's "Sandcastle Disco". None of the mixes improve on the original but the Jump Smokers Remix seems to be getting the most attention from clubbers. My favourite mix comes from Swedish DJ RedTop (below). He retains the old school flavour but takes it a step further by incorporating disco elements for the full 70s experience. I know it's an acquired taste but I absolutely love it. Keep 'em coming, B!

I bet that horrid B stole this from Solange. If this actually charts well I'm going to count it as Solange's first of many hits!

The title just sounds like her McDonalds Drive-Thru isn't open and she's taking it waaaaay to personal.

you know, i'm of the school that thinks you can't get enough singles from albums (a la Paula Abdul/Janet Jackson circa 1989/1990) so bring it on!

Nice find!

I thought all the remixes to this were dog shit like Bey herself but this one is really fierce.

I love how in America the dance charts mainly comprises of remixes to big pop songs because I don't know anybody on the Australian dance charts, its all those random dance acts. They dont play enough remixes in Australia.

When I used to go to the gay club it was always such a drama when I would make them play push the button remix and C-Milli Say I club mix!
