On August 21 R&B singer Beyonce Knowles wil release 'Irreemplazable,' an eight track Spanish language EP featuring select songs from Beyonce's hit album, B'Day.At the same time a Wal-Mart exclusive CD/DVD combo of the EP will also be released. Special content includes a behind the scenes documentary entitled La Evolucion Latina de Beyonce (The Latin Evolution of Beyonce) as well as the music video for Beyonce's "Get Me Bodied" (Timbaland Remix) featuring Voltio.The Spanish language EP follows close on the heels of B'Day's Grammy Award for Best Contemporary R&B Album raising Beyonce's Grammy total to 10. B'Day debuted at # 1 selling more than 530,000 copies and has already sold more than 4 million units worldwide to date.Comprised of original material and tracks from B'Day and Dreamgirls, Irreemplazable starts off with a recording of the single, "Amor Gitano," with Grammy Award winning artist, Alejandro Fernandez. This fiery collaboration between Beyonce and Alejandro has topped the Spanish single charts and is also the theme song for the immensely popular telenovela (Spanish soap opera,) Zorro, airing on Telemundo. Returning to some of her older material Beyonce also sings a Spanish version of her Academy Award Nominated song, Oye (Listen), from her RIAA Certified Platinum soundtrack, Dreamgirls.Following "Amor Gitano" and "Oye" on the EP is the hit title track, "Irreemplazable" (Irreplaceable), both in its original form and as a Nortena remix. In addition there are three different recordings of Beyonce and Shakira's sultry duet, "Beautiful Liar": one fully recorded in Spanish, another performed in Spanglish featuring Sasha (also known as Beyonce), and finally the English version of the single. Beyonce winds up Irreemplazable with a Timbaland remix of "Get Me Bodied" from B'Day featuring well known Reggaeton artist, Voltio.Although it was released nearly a year ago, B'Day has lost none of its power, and Irreemplazable only reinvigorates the strength of this multi- Platinum album. Beyonce can be seen on her nationwide tour, which began in July, in over 40 major cities.
