SONG: 6. “Partition”
KEY LYRICS: “Driver, roll up the partition, please/I don’t want you to see ‘Yonce on her knees/Took 45 minutes to get all dressed up/We ain’t even gonna make it to this club” and “Chauffeur eavesdropping trying not to crash”

King Bey goes full scale contessa in this steamy track, a kind of sequel to “Naughty Girl,” in which she urges her driver to roll up the limo partition so she and Hova can have sex on the go (AKA, the 50-Mile-An-Hour Club), away from prying eyes and ears. With references to buttons popping, blouses ripping, mascara running and lipstick smudging, it’s hot, heavy and definitely evocative. For anyone who’s always wanted to get down in the back of a vintage Rolls (who hasn’t?), or imagine the specifics of Jay Z having mobile dad-sex with Beyonce (who hasn’t?), this song is for you.—Jordan Runtagh
