And the Beyoncé house music era continues.

A new remix EP for "BREAK MY SOUL," Bey's breakout dance track, was released this week, featuring a club-ready jungle and bounce rendition by Honey Dijon.

Clocking in at an additional two minutes longer than the original, Dijon's version replaces the song's heady keys with a booming drum programming and pulsing basslines throughout. 

Dijon also traded out Big Freedia's break-down-the-door vocal feature and Queen Bey's delicate harmonies for textured rhythmic arrangements and power chords.
