92. Summer Heat of the 2000s: Beyoncé and Black Eyed Peas (Pt. II)

The final episode of our Switched on Summer throwback series finds us deconstructing more early aughts bangers.

Under consideration: two of the biggest hits since Y2K, Beyoncé’s “Crazy in Love” and the Black Eyed Peas’ “I Got a Feeling.” Tune in to dig how these tracks keeps the temperature rising through harmonic suspension, and to ask if will.i.am cribbed “Chopsticks.”
