New Music: Beyoncé – ‘Run the World (Girls)’ [Official Premiere]

Run the World (Girls)

After an early version leaked online, Beyoncé takes things back into her own hands, officially premiering “Run the World (Girls),” the first single from her as-yet-untitled fourth album. The Destiny’s Child diva picks up where “Single Ladies” left off, creating another girl power anthem for the dance floor.

Written by The-Dream and Beyoncé and produced by Switch (M.I.A., Santigold), Shea Taylor, and B, “Girls” borrows its hypnotizing beat from Major Lazer’s “Pon de Floor.”

“My persuasion can build a nation/ Endless power, without love we can devour/ You’ll do anything for me,” declares the femme fatale, who wields her power over the opposite sex.

“Who run this motha?” she repeatedly asks. This summer, the answer is B.

    @Real Issh, I’m wondering if people these days realize whether or not that not everyone HAS to like a Beyonce song, and this is coming from a Beyonce fan. I love Bey and her music just as well as the next fan, but my underwear doesn’t wad up in the back just because someone call one of her songs a “disaster”.

    @2011k, U must be new . I’m aware that people have their own opinions but they heard thee song in an earlier post . Don’t keep posting how they don’t like thee song . All they gotta do is not click on Beyonce’ shyt & not listen . Simple .

    @Gregewqo, Yea — I’m 16 . I’m growing up , bitch . “They don’t have to listen to it” .. Well then don’t listen or COMMENT . Like gtfo .

    2011k Reply:

    @Real Issh, Naw, been coming here for 2+ years; I just don’t comment very often. And, yes, you have a valid point because I don’t like Lil’ Wayne, and you don’t see me on his post claiming that he sucks because I don’t feel compelled to share that information there. However, if I were to decide to drop a line or so on how one of his singles were absolutely horrid, even for a Lil’ Wayne track, I would not want my opinion disrespected by a dig at my parents, face, sunshades, etc. (which is extremely immature). That’s all I was saying….

    @2011k, Of course it’s immature . Becuz ur taking it that way . I don’t know him/her so why should she be offended ? It’s fun & games to me . I thought that when someone becomes grown , they understand that WORDS SHOULD NEVER HURT THEM . I’m 16 & I know that . #Next .

    [Reply]

    Drose Reply:

    @No ma’am, Major Lazer is a group production with Diplo and Switch’s dancehall production. It’s a compilation album with A LOT of really sick appearances and beats. The main reason i’m unimpressed with Bey’s single is when I heard she was working with Diplo & Switch they said it was like nothing we’ve ever heard before and its hard to defend this as original. Over half y’all love it tho, i’ve still got faith in them for the rest the album. Cop that Major Lazer if you like Dancehall and MIA’s first 2 albums

    It sounds worse than the leaked demo, which i thought was interesting lyrically bad and lacking a decent chorus. This however this is just sad :(

    Im a massive fan and i hope this album doesnt suck, how can she like this? I have no problem with the direction/genre, it just sounds bad.It will definitely flop in the UK. Anyone else notice that Diplo has removed himself from the credits, i expected better from him and DJ switch

    To the song : I love Love LOVE Beyonce, but, this song isnt really her type of song, to me. I like the song and of course its a summer smash, but Beyonce coulda did better in the end.

    Beyonce is in some way like Aaliyah cause I remember Aaliyah would release a song and people wouldn’t feel it at first because it was so different, but once people finally caught on to where she was comin from and seen the video the song became a huge hit! That’s why “We Need A Resolution” wasn’t a big hit because it was so different, but yet to date it has almost become like a cult classic! Same thing with Beyonce’s Single Ladies, people didn’t like at first because it was different but now it’s a classic too! So I’m just saying don’t be so quick to say u don’t like something.

Now these stans can come reply cause i wont be in here to read it. Fukn dumbasses hahahahaa.

    I have to say to all these ppl who is hatin on dis song. FOr one the single is sick and i knw it will b a banger. 2 u all is saying dat she stole the beat like she made the beat. if u all wanna get mad at someone get mad at the producers who gave beyonce the beat. she jus wrote the lyrics wit the dream for it and its hot. finally B have tons of money more than 99% of the ppl on here. im sure she can make her a beat wit the dough she has. any the song is hot and its go be another banger

    I loved the singles from Beyonces last album, but this song is just not good. The album tracks from sasha fierce were better. It sounds like beyonce made an acapella song, somebody stole, and placed it on the first beat they could find. I hope the next single is good, because Im sick of Gaga.

    This song is #71 on iTunes

    I actually like this version…there is a difference. In the leak, I think (I think i said), you can only hear the slow breakdown once…in this you can hear it twice which gives it more of a recognizable pattern. Plus you can here the little “ha’s” that she does all the time as opposed to the 1st one.

    Anyhoo, the artists nowadays use shock and awe to stay relevant…maybe this is the case???

    somebody tell me the different version ppl have been talking about. mine is 3:56 length and has different melody on verses with tbe leak Rap-Up posted some days ago.
    btw i like the leak version more than this. this version copied all the parts of Pon De Floor while the leak version got different melody on verses.
    it’s definitely a grower, and i think i like it.
    feels like it is a marriage between single ladies and diva/videophone. just my opinion. :)

    It’s the only music story that “matters” today, pretty much: Beyonce has a new single out, and it’s called “Girls (Who Run the World),” and it’s about to be playing at loud volumes in every club in about 3…2…1…. But you’re too cool for Beyonce, so you’re going to act like you hate this before you hear it, but here’s a reason to at least give it a shot: Diplo and Switch, the producers behind most of the M.I.A. songs you care about, produce this, as the song samples Major Lazer’s “Pon De Floor.” Apparently Beyonce really wants to be a dancehall artist. Fair enough, I guess. Though that makes her Rihanna in 2004. But seriously, how many “girl power” songs can Beyonce squeeze out? By my count this is her 4573rd. If you haven’t realized women are powerful via a Beyonce song, you’ll never learn.

    I love you Beyonce, no matter whatever people tell about the sing. I love it.

    Okay I think its hy tyd I stand up 4 Bey! Sure Run The World(Girls) isn’t the greatest song in the world, hey the song isn’t even one of Bey’s best singles to date but ut certainly is NOT awful NOR is it a disaster. I’ve heard ton of bad 2011 releases but this is NOWHERE close to them. The song is way better than that unoriginal GaGa song and eeven better thab what Britany or Rihanna’s doing at the moment… Just saying!

    @John, Boi stop beyonce always sampling something rather its a song, dress or video ideas beyonce is NOT original very fake if you ask me she wanted to put something out just to prove something because Rhianna has taken her shine along with lady gaga, Britney spears and others that’s why she put this bull shit song together so fast she didn’t even use her own beat I think she was just lazy nobody really like the song its sounds like a lot going on, I hear Mechelle, Kelly, Letoya and the rest of the destiny children from past and present in the back ground I even hear animals and I swear I hear somebody playing Jay Z hump as drums Beyonce better come with it because Rhianna and the rest is making her look stupid and I’m not a fan of rhi rhi.

  150. try again, take two

    she sounds good. the song is all over the place. the harmonies is the best part. the would-be cacophony of instruments doesn’t mesh, isn’t cohesive. her anthem, the lyrics lack sophistication and are sub-par.

    it’s too much.

    i think after a time in the dance clubs, folk will grow tired from it, much in the same way. repetition is good, but has a tendency to fade to background noise.

    i can see folks leaving the dance floor whilst the song is yet playing, to go to the bar or stop and talk to friends.

    it’s background noise, plain and simple.

    and from what i’ve seen of the video, i don’t know if that post apocalyptic, desert scenario, grimy, mad max with haute couture will save it.

    i can definitely see a more crisp and clean treatment for this video. something inside of a large corporation. think matrix and having beyonce and her uterus that can bear children then get to business, followed by an army of women with uterus that can bear children, taking on the establishment, the man, kicking the man to the curb for girl power…

    because that’s what beyonce likes to do in her anthems, right? elevate girl-power while emasculating the man.

    and this is her form of feminism *eye-roll*

    This proves one thing, she yet lacks subtlety and nuance in her work, in her *writing* which (look above) is sub-par and plain juvenile. Read a book, many books and come up with clever ways to make your man “pay me!” without literally saying pay me…

    this song is background noise that will soon pass in the wake of hopefully her next sonic boom.

    she is washed up. These pathetic garbage songs she is making like 1. Who rules the world and 2. Ring the alarm. Will not be remembered 20 years from now. They are just temporary ‘hits’…..(if this new one even makes it to be a ‘hit’) that will eventually be forgotten. Stop trying to fit in with the younger generation and be yourself and stay true to yourself. Shaking your ass and weave will only get you so far. Her music has no meaning anymore. And i am not feeling ‘best thing i never had’ she sounds like she is whining in that whole song. The focal point of the song was a good idea, but the title and the way she sang it was not for her. The old B i loved. Loved the dangerously in love album and when she was with destiny’s child. Now she just looks like she tries way to hard and is feeling the competition from the younger generation artists i.e. rihanna. who is her own artist in her own right with her only style. Make memorable, meaningful songs B. Not 1,2,or 3 hit wonders.
