"Déjà Vu" is a song recorded by American R&B singer Beyoncé Knowles, featuring additional vocals from American rapper Jay-Z. It was produced by Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins and Jon Jon Traxx for her second solo album, B'Day (2006). "Déjà Vu" was initially leaked to the internet on June 13, 2006. The song was later released as the lead single from the album on July 31, 2006 in the United States through Columbia Records. "Déjà Vu" derives genres from R&B, incorporates the 1970s funk as well as soul music and is composed in a moderate hip hop groove. Its varied instrumentation includes bass guitar, hi-hat, horns, and the Roland TR-808 drum machine, which provides a heavy and energetic beat. The song's title and lyrics refer to a woman being constantly reminded of a past lover.

"Déjà Vu" was received with generally mixed to positive reception by music critics, with most of them telling that the track could be considered as a sequel to "Crazy in Love" (2003) even though the former was less harmonically and melodically produced than the latter. Several other music critics praised the assertiveness, the easiness, and the sensuality with which Knowles delivers the lyrics on the song, further saying that this would remind listeners of Tina Turner when she was still young. "Déjà Vu" was nominated for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration and Best R&B Song at the 2007 Grammy Awards, while the remix version was nominated in the category Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical. It was recognized as "Best Song" at the 2006 Music of Black Origin (MOBO) Awards.
