The Australian singer says that his song, which features him channeling 'Drunk in Love', was recorded before Beyonce released her hit late last year.

has just dropped his newest single called "Surfboard". Hitting iTunes on Tuesday, March 18, the catchy and summery track features maturer vocals and lyrics from the Australia-born singer.

"So come on/ Let the ocean takes us away/ Till we see the daylight/ Come and I know that it's getting late/ But we wanna stay," he sings before channeling ' "Drunk in Love", singing, "She on my surfboard, board, board, board."

However, Bey's hit didn't inspire Simpson's "Surfboard". In an interview with MTV News, the "" contestant revealed that that his song was recorded before the songstress' collab with her husband arrived late last year.

"Everyone was like, 'Beyonce did that' and I had the idea for a while. And then Beyonce's came out and I absolutely love that song, but when I heard it I didn't know if it was going to affect my idea at all," he said. "And at the end of the day I thought about it so much and I thought 'Hey it's a part of pop culture right now,' if I was going to release this song it would probably be the best time to do it, so I decided why not just go along with it now."
