​Beyoncé's shares ‘Break My Soul’ remixes from Honey Dijon, Nita Aviance, Will.i.am and more

Beyoncé recently unveiled a 4-pack EP of remixes of her track 'Break My Soul' which included contributions from Will.i.am, Honey Dijon, Terry Hunter, and Nita Aviance.

The singer’s house-inspired track took the world by storm when it was originally released in June - leaving many eager listeners hungry for her latest album ‘Renaissance' - which came out last Friday (July 29).

The already wildly successful tune ‘Break My Soul’ gets a new dance music twist with each successive rendition. Beyoncé's words are interlaced with new sonic twists in Will.i.am's rendition - all while keeping in the spirit of the house music legend Robin S.’ 1990-released track ‘Show Me Love’ sample.

Honey Dijon’s remix gives the track a complete dance-music makeover - making it the perfect addition to any pumping house setlist this summer festival season.

Terry Hunter’s rework is bouncy and fun, offering a different angle to the original. Meanwhile, Nita Aviance’s remix is club-ready and steamy - keeping the spirit of the summer going for the rest of the warm months.

Honey Dijon has already featured as a producer and programmer on ‘Renaissance' tracks ‘Cozy’ and ‘Alien Superstar’. After rumours spreading in March that Dijon would be featuring in the new albums, fans were excited to hear a dance-music album from Beyoncé.

After the release of ‘Renaissance’, Honey Dijon took to Instagram and wrote a lengthy caption about her collaboration with the US superstar. She wrote, in part: “Thank you @beyonce for this incredible moment. Meeting and working with you on Renaissance has been life changing.

“To share my Chicago house music roots and black queer and trans culture with you and the world is profound and emotional. I am honored, humbled, delirious with joy, and proud.”

Also credited as producers on ‘Renaissance’ are Skrillex (‘Energy’), Green Velvet (‘Cozy’), A.G Cook (‘All Up In Your Mind’), and Boi-1da (‘Heated’).
