Say whatever you want about Rihanna, Beyonce is the queen pop diva of our age. She is “Flawless,” she is innocent in a “Halo,” she is a “Naughty Girl.” She is a mother, a lover, a daughter, a friend. She is every woman, it's all in her, and she has legs on legs on legs.

She is unafraid to stand up for her beliefs or make a statement in front of millions. She is powerful and emotional and Bey-ond all description. About the only thing she can't do is stop the memes, but hey, no one is God.

With a discography that includes six successful solo albums and four with her old gal pals Destiny's Child, there's a whole lot of Bey out there to enjoy. Still, we love to see DJs and producers get their hands on Ms. Slay, and these are some of our favorite remixes of Beyonce songs out there.

#1 Beyonce Song Remix: “7/11” – DJ Mustard

Holy shnikes does this ish bang. “7/11” is kind of obnoxious. It's so repetitive, but there's no chance to be annoyed by the five-millionth “side to side” in this hyped-up version from one of the best hip-pop producers to ever do it. Get ready to sweat out your blow-out, for real.

#2 Beyonce Song Remix: “Naughty Girl” – Finesse and Brenmar

Released in honor of Bey's Bday in 2013, this Jersey Club edit features is back-breaking, booty-bouncin' greatness. It's rather minimal with a repetitive vocal sample, but in this instance, it's all you need.

#3 Beyonce Song Remix: Formation” – TRST

Woooo! This hot sauce is too hot! Our buns are burning from the workout TRST put on this instant classic. Another Jersey Club rework, but this one is a bit more colorful than Brenmar's approach. Up-tempo, hard-hitting, and fierce af, just like Queen Bey.

#4 Beyonce Song Remix: “Sorry” – Niko Javan

Why does this song end in a baby crying? Why isn't it longer? Because Niko Javan is crazy, but he do know how to write crazy awesome beats. This one feels like a trip through funky hyper-space. Sorry he ain't sorry.

#5 Beyonce Song Remix: Crazy in Love” – 50 Shades of Gray Soundtrack

Beyonce pre-Lemonade be lookin' at Jay with wild side-eye. This haunting rendition of the young Beyonce's ode to now-hubby Jay Z turns the peppy pop song into the anthem for crazy ex-girlfriends everywhere. We've all felt this way at one point or another. We've all had that one scary lover for whom this jam is perfect.

#6 Beyonce Song Remix: “Drunk in Love” – The Weeknd

Kick every child in a five-mile radius out of the vicinity. Do not listen to this without headphones if your boss is anywhere within ear shot. This is the dirtiest thing you'll ever heard maybe in your entire life. The Weeknd is disgusting in the best way over this turned-down version of Beyonce's run-away hit. Hope you've got a minute for – ahem – yourself.

#7 Beyonce Song Remix: “XO” – Full Crate

A lil wonky bass line for your last-call Beyonce feels. If this doesn't get the room laid just before the club lights go out, you're doing something severely wrong.
