2018 marks 10 years since Beyonce released her iconic third studio album, I Am… Sasha Fierce. Released on November 12, the album was released through Columbia Records and Music World Entertainment and in its initial release, the album was formatted as a double album, intending to market Beyoncé’s contrasting facets of artistry.

The first disc, I Am…, contains slow and midtempo pop and R&B ballads, while the second, Sasha Fierce (named after Beyoncé’s on-stage alter ego), focuses on more uptempo beats that blend electropop and Europop genres.

Along with the historic Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It), 8 other singles were released including Sweet Dreams. Written by Beyonce alongside James Scheffer, Wayne Wilkins, and Rico Love as the sixth single, it was critically acclaimed by contemporary music critics, who praised its beats, synthpop sound and Beyonce’s vocals.

Some critics noted that the sliding bassline gave the song a dark quality and resembles the one used in some of Michael Jackson’s songs on Thriller, though I personally think it resembles Off the Wall.

Earlier today, a trap remix was released on Apple Music, iTunes and Tidal. The remix is credited to “IDS” on Tidal, and the copyright is attributed to “℗ 2018 Beyonce” on Apple Music and iTunes, though its not an official release:

Sweet Dreams debuted at number seventy-two on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart issue dated August 9, 2009 and peaked at #10. It has since been certified platinum with sales of 1.6 million.
