Beyonce has released her new single, a song titled: Who Run The World (Girls).
And while the cover is hot, that’s pretty much the only thing going on for the song.
The song is so bad that I have yet to listen to it in its entirety. Yes, it’s one of those four minute songs that keep you thinking for the first half of it what the artist was thinking when they:
1) recorded this.
2) had the idea of releasing it cross their minds.
3) Actually decided to release it as their debut single from an anticipated album.
4) Film a video for it.
And then you press the stop button.
I understand Beyonce wanted to challenge the current norm on pop radio of electronic music ruling everything but you cannot do so with a bad song. Look at Adele. She is today’s prime exhibit of not going with the flow when it comes to music. Her song, Rolling In The Deep, is currently #1 on iTunes and growing exponentially on pop radio.
Dear Beyonce, out-of-the-box is not always out-of-this-world good. Maybe you should have released a better song so more people could care about your upcoming release and then went on them with a bad song all empowering for the women.
Besides, talk about a topic rehash, it’s not the first time Beyonce tries to empower women in song. If I Were A Boy, Irreplaceable, Single Ladies ring a bell?
I am not the biggest Beyonce fan. But I appreciate her better songs (Halo, for example). This one, however, isn’t even close to being a good song – let alone one of her better songs.
Check out the song:
After my first listen, I absolutely refuse to voluntarily listen again or even purchase it. lol
I have yet to listen to it in its entirety and I do not intend to anytime soon 🙂
I think the song is a typical Beyonce song.
Same music style as Videophone, Diva. Same theme as Independent Women and the songs that you mentioned.
I like the beat though. It will grow on you.
I don’t like the songs you mentioned to begin with. And I couldn’t listen to this one the whole way through yet so I can’t see how it will grow on me :p
if it will, it’s going to take a long time.
this is not her best song but after listening for awhile it’s not that bad
Well, it came on the radio and tried to listen to it in its entirety and couldn’t. So yeah, it’s still bad :p at least to me.

Crap. No wonder Adele’s heartfelt songs have her album in the top 100 for OVER 100 weeks. Thats two years.
