Beyonce Sample Sale: Singer Mixes Madonna’s ‘Vogue’ Into Frankenstein’s Single ‘Break My Soul’ – Without Any Madge Vocals

House Music Beyonce Sample Sale: Singer mixes Madonna’s ‘Vogue’ into Frankenstein’s single, ‘Break My…

Beyonce’s Queens mix for “Break My Soul” is a sad commentary on pop music.

Not content with creating the Frankenstein-eque “Break My Soul” from two old disco records, Beyonce decided to remix it with another.

Now, in addition to the other two records, Beyonce sampled or interpolated or grafted Madonna’s “Vogue” from 1990. Madonna wasn’t required to do anything except sign, take some dough and put her name back on the top 10 for the first time in decades.

“Break My Soul” was already heavily dependent on Robin S.’s “Show Me Love” and Big Freedia’s “Explode:.”

You can hear “Vogue” mixed with “Break My Soul” the same way Sfeve’s Ice Cream used to incorporate bits of M&Ms and Reese’s into their ice cream. Remember how people lined up for this? And then Steve went bankrupt.

Kudos to Guy Oseary or whoever thought of this mix. Interestingly, on Friday, it was “only available” on Beyonce’s website, but magically appeared on iTunes.
