*Long before Kanye West ever forged a link between Beck and Beyoncé, the two had an even less degree of separation.

Reddit user Sitdownyo pointed out that Beck’s father, David Campbell, worked on Beyonce’s 2006 Grammy-winning “B’Day” album. According to his MTV biography, Campbell specifically contributed to the track “Listen.”

As the Toronto Star notes, Campbell is an “arranger, orchestrator, conductor and sometimes session player,” and he’s worked on some of the biggest albums of the last 50 years: Adele’s “21,” Taylor Swift’s “Red,” Carole King’s “Tapestry” and Justin Timberlake’s” FutureSex/LoveSounds” (as well as many of his son’s albums including “Morning Phase”).

Campbell also played viola during recording sessions for Marvin Gaye’s “Let’s Get It On” and Bill Withers’ “Lean on Me,” among others.
