The time has finally come for Beyonce to release new music! The “Single Ladies” singer hasn’t had a new album since 2008’s I Am…Sasha Fierce, and she hasn’t had a new single since a small release of “Video Phone,” featuring Lady Gaga.
So now Beyonce is back with her first single off a new album (which has yet to be mentioned for a title or release date), called “Run The World (Girls).” In the promotional video for the song–shown before it got leaked on the internet– shows Beyonce on a horse, and there’s a car with the word REVOLUTION painted in red. Dramatic, much?
I’m…not sure how I feel about this song. I mean, after the greatness that was “Single Ladies” and even “Crazy In Love,” “Irreplaceable,” just songs like that, and after them having done so well, why would she go back to a song that’s more in the style of “Video Phone”? She has such a great voice, I think it’s wasted on this song. It sounds like a combination of “Video Phone” and the Beastie Boys‘ “Girls.”
