Beyoncé: Work It Out (VLS) (Columbia, 2002)

Vinyl-only R&B remixes of Knowles' 2002 Austin Powers soundtrack cut Work It Out featuring remixes by Rockwilder, Damon Elliott and southern rapper Juvenile (Terius Gray.) Rockwilder's mix features a guest slot from Redman (who later featured on the Eric Sermon remix to her 2004 song Naughty Girl). All mixes sound quite different from the original; the Rockwilder and D.Elliott remixes are more poppy whereas Gray's mix is slightly more urban. All mixes use the original vocals though for some reason, on the Rockwilder remix, they have been weirdly pitched up.
