Beyoncé Wants You to ‘Move Your Body’

Beyoncé

Want to work it out like Beyoncé? Here’s how. The pop star has partnered with First Lady Michelle Obama and the National Association of Broadcasters Education Foundation to help fight childhood obesity.

Bey re-recorded her hit “Get Me Bodied” for the “Let’s Move! Flash Workout” campaign and is now releasing it under the name “Move Your Body.” An instructional video featuring a group of teenagers getting down to the Swizz Beatz-produced tune was released online, while she will also record her own version of the exercise routine for distribution to participating schools.

She previously shared her elation over helping to fight the growing health problem. “I am excited to be part of this effort that addresses a public health crisis,” stated Beyoncé. “First Lady Michelle Obama deserves credit for tackling this issue directly, and I applaud the NAB Education Foundation for trying to make a positive difference in the lives of our schoolchildren.”

Middle school students can practice the dance by watching the new video, and can show off their hard work with a nationally syndicated “Let’s Move!” routine to take place at the same time on May 3 at 1:42 p.m. EST.

    I don’t know how I feel about her remixing “Get Me Bodied” and using it as her first single for her fourth album, calling it “Move Your Body” instead, but I will be buying it on iTunes to support. Beyonce knows best! <3

    TeamTM Reply:

    @Mya, Turn that race card down plz

    Get me bodied/move ur body(the topic today) is a R&B song,she is always doing r&b to me.

    britney has couple R&B tracks ans she is pop ..or is she?Perhaps cause she is …W****?

    @TeamTM,

    Beyonce is a MAINSTREAM Artist which = POP ARTIST

    meme Reply:

    @TeamTM, I think people confused the meaning of pop. Pop is short for popular. Country, rap, R&B or any type of music can be pop. Kanye & Nicki is a raps but he is pop, taylor sings country but she a pop artist…the same way beyonce mostly sings r&b but she is a pop artist.

    maya Reply:

    @Mya, have you not heard of Sppechless? Yes? Resentment? Her entire first album is stright R&B. She is very mainstream but Beyonce is also R&B #sit

    DaDonRoMaN Reply:

    @maya, A Pop Artist Is An Artist With Popular Appeal. Pop Music Is Commercially Recoreded Music. Pop Music Is Short For Popular Music. Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj, Kanye West, Jay Z, Katy Perry,Justin Bieber, Willow Smith Bruno Mars, Rihanna and So On Are Pop Artist. R&B Artist Include Monica, Keyshia Cole, Ne-Yo, Fantasia, Jennifer Hudson and So On.. Get It .??

    I love how you can compare Move Your Body and Get Me Bodied and hear how Beyonce’s voice has changed. Her voice sounds lower and fits the song nicely. I love the change. And it’s good to see her participate in such innovating campaign.

    its the truth.

    its well known in the industr beyonce is just boring. she has nothing new to say. shes so rehearsed and media trained. look at the pop satrs today they all have something intresting to say. i think its because she idolises her mum and michelle obama wheres people like rihanna idiolise current culture she reall ages herself with this “holier than thou” persona its such a bore. i predict 300k on her first week.

    bey is the queen and rih is definitely
    the princess so all is well. when people pit artist aganist another they clearly see a clear and present danger with rihanna. these
    super stars are not in a race with each other i swear bey’s fans gets carried away.
    why can’t rihanna make a living too, theres room for all of them.

    GTFOH The Rih-tard stans are mad. Just b/c Bey doesn’t cuss people out, pick fights on twitter, talk about how much she likes d**k, etc. doesn’t mean she’s boring. Some people like AK and Bey like to rely on their talent and not an outlandish and gimmicky personality to get by. Funny thing though: Gaga and Rihanna are manufactured like the rest. They do ish just for shock value and to cause controversy.

    [Reply]

    Whatcha_Sayin Reply:

    @Diva, that’s because Beyonce is older, wiser, more experienced in the industry, a Christian AND she’s married! Why would a married, Christian woman speak about liking d**k? Although i do admit that was a low move from my girl Ri

    [Reply]

    EGkcuf Reply:

    @Diva, exactly, I think B and AK especially, are a welcome change from all the ladies out now having to constantly do or say something controversial to remain relevant.
    Good music, good heart, and REAL talent – you can be as “boring” as you want, I’ll remain a fan.

    @Alicias certified homewrecka, Awww…you mad? The fact remains the same: you’re sitting behind a screen anonymously hating on a woman you don’t know. And Beyonce doesn’t need your seal of approval in any way. She has the First Lady and Pres. backing her, which is definitely worth more than some stranger’s comments on a blog. Like I said, if you don’t like what Beyonce is doing, you get up there yourself. Toodles!
