Beyonce - Run The World (Girls)

UPDATE!

Beyoncé’s much-anticipated lead single from her upcoming as-yet-untitled fourth solo album, premieres on radio worldwide tomorrow. Run The World (Girls) will make its radio debut at 8:00 AM EST in the US/1:00 PM GMT in the UK. The single will be available worldwide for sale on iTunes starting Thursday morning. Run The World (Girls) was produced by Switch with additional production by Beyoncé and Shea Taylor. The song was written by Terius Nash (The Dream) and Beyoncé.

I was anxiously awaiting for Beyoncé‘s new single to leak, which it did and it’s called Run The World (Girls), have a listen below for yourself before it gets taken down by Sony. Right now everything seems shrouded in secrecy, there’s still no official word on her website (or via Twitter, she has an account but has yet to tweet) but I’m sure she’ll soon kick into promotional gear since she already shot the music video (I posted pictures of her on set last week). Overall, I do like the track (produced by Diplo, and heavily samples Major Lazer‘s Pon de Floor which I love) but I also find it to be a bit cluttered, plus it doesn’t seem very radio friendly, yet this could be just a demo, what does everyone else think? It’s super nice to have something new from her but this tasty tidbit is just making me hungry for more. Supposedly her new album is dropping in June, so expect a big announcement from Beyoncé any day now.
