Complex Says: Jay and Beyoncé's working relationship has spawned some great records but “03 Bonnie And Clyde” is not one of them. The track is the culmination of several bad decisions, the most egregious offense being the fact that the song is an inferior remake of 2Pac's classic, “Me And My Girlfriend.” Where Pac's song was a metaphor for his relationship with his gun—an idea that Jay paid proper homage to on the second verse of "All I Need"—the '03 version was a dedication to his actual girlfriend—who just happened to be singing the hook!
Opting for braggadocio over grittiness and flaunting their relationship on the track was unnecessary, especially because the pair would never admit they were dating. But nothing was worse than the Latin-flavored strings orvideo depicting them as fugitives on the run. Really?
