Four months after Columbia released a "deluxe edition" of B'Day, which added a second disc, the label released this "special low-priced CD" -- essentially the bonus disc from the deluxe B'Day with a tacked-on Timbaland remix of "Get Me Bodied." If you're a die-hard Beyoncé fan, you'll probably feel jerked around a bit -- especially if you bought B'Day when it came out in September 2006 and bought the deluxe edition seven months later, only to find out that the bonus material would later come out on its own (with a track not on the second disc of the deluxe edition!). And there's really not much to the disc, anyway: a Spanish-language version of "Irreplaceable," along with its attendant norteña mix, the subdued "Listen (Oye)," three mixes of "Beautiful Liar," "Amor Gitano" (a duet with Alejandro Fernández), and the aforementioned Timbaland remix.
