He explained: “It’s one of those things. The song came out so long ago in the scheme of music. Music kind of goes so fast. And I was like, I want to do it as a single.
“And then I thought of a way of re-launching it. I was like, I love Beyoncé, should I ask Beyoncé? In my head, I was like, she’s going to say no, and then I was like, well you might as well ask, and she said yes.”
