"I'm willing to run... smash into you..." ( c ) The Yonce

A slice of pop perfection.

I haven't heard Beyonce's upcoming double-disc album "I Am... Sasha Fierce" in it's entirety yet, but I can almost guarantee this will be the best song on there. Surprisingly, it was written by The Dream and produced by "Tricky" Stewart, the team behind Mariah's "Touch My Body" and The Dream's own "Shawty Is A 10". Both the beat and the melody betray a degree of subtlety and measured reflection that I thought was beyond these guys. Not to mention the lack of any "ella, ella, ella, eh eh eh"'s. It's Beyonce's controlled vocal performance however that makes the song great - this has to become her biggest hit to date. Beautiful song.
