About Upgrade U

"Upgrade U" is a song by American singer and songwriter Beyoncé from her second studio album B'Day (2006). The song features additional vocals from American rapper Jay-Z. It was composed by Swizz Beatz, Cameron Wallace, Beyoncé, MK, Makeba, Sean Garrett, Angela Beyincé, Jay-Z, Willie Clarke, Clarence Reid, and Beyoncé's sister, Solange. Columbia Records released "Upgrade U" as a promotional single on 8 October 2006 in the United States only. "Upgrade U" draws from the genres of hip hop and contemporary R&B. The concept of the song revolves around a woman offering luxuries to a man to upgrade his lifestyle. "Upgrade U" was generally well received by music critics, some praising Knowles' assertiveness while singing about her desire to give luxuries to her man. Many also praised the natural chemistry that Knowles and Jay-Z have in the song. After the release of B'Day, "Upgrade U" started to gain popularity on R&B and hip hop radio stations in the United States. This prompted its pre-release debut on the US Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart and later on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart; after its promotional release, the song peaked at number 11 and at number 59 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and the Hot 100 charts respectively.

Yeah B
Talk yo' shit 
(Partner let me upgrade you)
How you gon' upgrade me what's higher than number one?
You know I used to beat that block
Now I be's the block (partner let me upgrade you)

I hear you be the block, but I'm the lights that keep the streets on
Notice you the type, that like to keep them on a leash though
I'm known to walk alone, but I'm alone for a reason
Sending me a drink ain't appeasing, believe me
Come harder, this won't be easy
Don't doubt yourself trust me, you need me
This ain't no shoulder with a chip, or an ego
But what you think they all mad at me for

You need a real woman in your life (that's a good look)
Taking care, home is still fly (that's a good look)
And I'mma help you build up your account (that's a good look)
Better yet a hood look, ladies (that's a good look)
When you're in them big meetings, for the mills (that's a good look)
It take me just to complement the deals (that's a good look)
And anything you cop, I'll split the bill (that's a good look)
Better yet a hood look, believe me (ladies that's a good look)

Partner, let me upgrade you, Audemars Piguet you
Switch your neck ties to purple labels
Upgrade you, I can (up), can I (up), let me (up) grade you
Partner, let me upgrade you

Partner, let me upgrade you
Flip a new page
Introduce you to some new things, and upgrade you
I can (up), can I (up), let me, upgrade you?
Partner, let me upgrade you

I can do for you, what Martin did for the people
Ran by the men, but the women keep the tempo
It's very seldom, that you're blessed to find your equal
Still played my part and let you take the lead role, believe me

I'll follow, this could be easy
I'll be the help, whenever you need me (you need me)
I see your hustle with my hustle, I can keep you
Focused on your focus, I can feed you

You need a real woman in your life (that's a good look)
Taking care, home is still fly (that's a good look)
I can help you build up your account (that's a good look)
Better yet a hood look, believe me (ladies that's a good look)
When you're in them big meetings, for the mills (that's a good look)
You take me just to complement the deals (that's a good look)
Anything you cop, I'll split the bill (that's a good look)
Better yet a hood look, believe me I can upgrade you (ladies that's a good look)

Partner, let me upgrade you, Audemars Piguet you
Switch your neckties to purple labels (have you rocking purple labels)
Upgrade you, I can (up), can I (up), let me (up) grade you
Partner, let me upgrade you

Partner, let me upgrade you
Flip a new page, let me upgrade you
Introduce you to some new things, and (Uh!) upgrade (HOV!) you
I can (up), (Uh!) can I (up), let me, (HOV!) upgrade you?
Partner, let me upgrade you

Uh huh, I be's the d-boy, who infiltrated all the corporate dudes
They call shots, I call all-the-booze
Jacob the jeweler, baubles, Lauraine Schwartz, oughta do
It's big balling baby, when I'm courting you
I'm talking spy bags, and fly pads, and 
Rooms at the Bloomberg, and rumors you on the verge 
Of a new merge, 'cause that rock on ya finger, is like a tumor
You can't fit ya hand in ya new purse
It's humorous, to me they watching and we just yachting off the island hopping off the Amalfi coast
Mafioso! Oh baby, you ever seen Saturn? 
No, not the car, but everywhere we are
You're sure to see stars, this is high level not eye level
My bezel, courtesy of Audemars
I order yours tomorrow, now look at the time I saved you
Mama, let me upgrade you

Just when you think we had it all
Big ends, condos, collecting cars
Picture your life elevating with me
Make you my project celebrity I keep your name hot in them streets
And it's that little glimpse of light that makes that diamond really shine
And you already is a star, but
Unless you're flawless
Then ya dynasty ain't complete without a chief, like me

Partner, let me upgrade you, Audemars Piguet you
Switch your neckties to purple labels 
Upgrade you, I can (up), can I (up) let me upgrade you
Partner, let me upgrade you

Partner, let me upgrade you
Flip a new page
Introduce you to some new things, and upgrade you
I can (up), can I (up), let me, upgrade you
Partner, let me upgrade you, upgrade you

Audemars Piguet watch, dimples in ya necktie
Hermès briefcase, Cartier tie clips
Silk-lined blazers, diamond creamed facials
VVS cuff-links, six-star pent suites
Partner, let me, upgrade ya, grade ya
Partner, partner, let me, upgrade you, grade you
Let me, let me, let me, upgrade you, grade you
Partner, partner, partner, let me upgrade you
