Beyoncé Sampled One Of The Worst Songs Of 2008 For ‘Lemonade’

It’s widely known that Lemonade and Beyoncé songs in general are the best, whereas anything Soulja Boy Tell’em touches is the worst.

So imagine our surprise to learn that Beyoncé sampled Soulja Boy’s 2008 song “Turn My Swag On” on Lemonade favorite “Hold Up.”

At the end of “Hold Up” Beyonce lets us know:

I hop up out the bed and get my swag on
I look in the mirror, and say, “What’s up?”
What’s up, what’s up, what’s up

Which is a variation on the hook of Soulja Boy’s song which goes:

I hop up out the bed, turn my swag on
Took a look in the mirror, said what’s up
Yeah I’m gettin’ money, oh.

Leave it to Beyonce to find the one golden nugget in a song that probably never should have been made in the first place.

Listen to “Turn My Swag On” below if you must or go ahead and just take our word for it.
