Background[edit]

Beyoncé's manager approached English production team Freemasons to remix "Déjà Vu" after hearing a remix they made for a song by singer Heather Headley.[1] A club-oriented version was produced and appeared on a "Green Light" Freemasons EP, released on July 31, 2007.[2] A maxi single, featuring the album version of the track and Freemasons club mix, was released on August 5, 2006 in European countries.[3]
