'Smash Into You', the song that appeared on the deluxe edition of Beyonce Knowles' 'I Am...Sasha Fierce' LP is reportedly a scrap pile from Jon McLaughlin's album 'Ok Now'.
Beyonce Knowles has reportedly received a leftover single, which is originally Jon McLaughlin's song called "Smack Into You". She then includes the track on the deluxe edition of her third studio effort "I Am...Sasha Fierce", which has been outed since November 18, with a changed title "Smash Into You".
"Smack Into You" was rumored to be written for Jon McLaughlin's second studio album "Ok Now". The song has reportedly been performed throughout his summer and fall tour but it ended on the scrap pile when his album was finalized. To avoid a waste, it was then presented to Beyonce Knowles.
On his official website, Jon wrote that "Smack Into You" was written and produced by Tricky Stewart and The-Dream. "[The song] is about falling head over heels in love, a combination of The Police's 'Every Breath You Take' and U2's 'With or Without You' melding acoustic guitar and McLaughlin's piano to create a passionate undertow," so his biography read.
