James Flaunteroy Releases Original Demo For ‘On The Run’
James Edward Fauntleroy II is an American singer, songwriter and record producer from Inglewood, California. He is best known for featuring on tracks by high-profile artists. In 2014 and 2018, Fauntleroy won the Grammy Award for Best R&B Song
The much sought after songwriter-producer has shared the original demo version of Jay-Z and Beyonce’s collaboration ‘Part II (On the Run)’ that appeared on Hov’s 2013 album, Magna Carta Holy Grail. Timbaland and J-Roc were responsible for the production on the love song that peaked at #77 on the Billboard Hot 100 but was a fan favorite off Jay’s not-so-well received album.
On this OG version titled ‘Take Me’, the beat of course remains the same, but the accomplished songwriter has more lines that did not make the cut on the studio version. Listen to the amazing song below. Back in September, Fauntleroy dropped a freebie called ‘I Can See You Now‘.
James Flaunteroy On The Run[Verse 1] I don’t care if we on the run
Baby, long I’m next to you, ooh
And if loving you is a crime
Tell me why I bring out the best in you, ah, ah [Bridge] I hear sirens while we make love
Loud as hell, but they don’t know, oh-oh-oh
Nowhere near us
I will hold your heart and your gun
I don’t care if they come, no, no, oh (Oh)
I know it’s crazy, but [Hook] They can take me
Now that I found the places that you
Without you, I got nothing to lose
