(RNN) - Beyonce is full of surprises lately. She released a self-titled video album in the middle of the night, dropped in for a coordinated dance during sister Solange's Coachella performance and now she's part of a surprise collaboration with singer-songwriter/producer Boots.

Boots released the song Dreams via his SoundCloud account Tuesday and much to his fans' (and the world's) surprise, it featured backup vocals and one verse by Beyonce.

Boots, whose real name is Jordy Asher, worked heavily on Beyonce's self-titled video album and was credited with a total of four songs. He was unknown at the time Beyonce was released, but that's about to change.

Dreams is part of his upcoming 16-song album, WinterSpringSummerFall. He slowly rolled out each song from the album via SoundCloud, saving one of the best for last. And with more than 63,000 listens and 1,000 likes, we'd say fans approve.

Dreams can be purchased via Boots' SoundCloud page for only 99 cents.

But hey, surprise or not, we'll take some new Beyonce music anytime.

Glen Campbell moved to care facility

Country singer Glen Campbell, diagnosed with Alzheimer's in 2011, has been moved into a care facility .

"Sadly, Glen's condition has progressed enough that we were no longer able to keep him at home," Campbell's family said in a statement to Rolling Stone.

"He is getting fantastic care and we get to see him every day. Our family wants to thank everyone for their continued prayers, love and support."

After going public with his diagnosis, Campbell went on one final tour for fans in 2013.

We wish the best of care to the Rhinestone Cowboy.
