16. 'Irreplaceable' was recorded by Beyoncé but written for Shania Twain.
'Irreplaceable' was written by the extremely talented singer and songwriter Ne-Yo, along with production duo Stargate. The track was actually written with a country vibe in mind, and intended to land in Shania Twain or Faith Hill's lap, but when Beyoncé heard it she loved it and took it for herself. Now you think about it, you can still kind of hear the country vibe in the track can't you?
