Teaser: Beyoncé – ‘Run the World (Girls)’

Who Runs the World?

Beyoncé starts a revolution in the third video teaser for “Run the World (Girls),” the first single from her fourth album. The Houston-bred superstar stands in front of a burning car, rides a black horse, and assembles her troops for battle in the post-apocalyptic clip. This means war.

UPDATE: Watch the extended trailer below, and look for the full premiere this Friday on VEVO.

    @TiaBxtchhx3, beyonce is such a image artist. you shouldnt have to rely on your image, sex and videos to make your music hot when your as talented as Beyonce. Even rihanna who is 10x less talented than Bey make incredible music then backs it up with her image.

    @meme, oh really? rihanna is not a image artist? then whats with the red hair… her image helps her with her career, just like every other artist!!

    @Joe, you should say her image helps her more than every other artist! Rihanna is ready to do or say incredible incredible things just to have all eyes on her

    @meme, all rihanna does is show her body, sing about sex, & talk about sex. And what “amazing” music are you referring to? That bitch sounds the same in every song! Eh this & Eh that…

    @Shanique, first off mary was here before beyonce mary will bring her to her knees n second both alica keys n mary both have surpassed her in sales n rihanna has more number ones than beyonce so beyonce needs to take a hint and have some kids

    @Danger, I hope so too! To be honest I don’t like all this pre-hype with these teasers

    [Reply]

    Music Lover Reply:

    @Danger, Oh gawd me too. I think Bey threw people a curve ball with this one. people was expected something of “single Ladies” type record. I think people need to open their minds and heart to her new sound and stop putting her in a box. I am so ready for this era to begin!

    Beyonce, once again, shows a severe lack of intelligence by filming a video with heavy war imagery. A bit tasteless when you turn on CNN, don’t you think.

  27. kingkong

    i’m going to be totally honest..i’m huge beyonce fan but at first i hated the song, i really tried liking it but i just can’t..probably the video will change my opinion about it …it’s the same thing with singles ladies at first i didn’t like it but as the video hits …that shit was on repeat ever since. beyonce totally when a deferent direction with her sound which i applaud her for seeing that all her counterparts are doing the whole haus music stuff. this teaser seems quite interesting and it’s evident that beyonce is heading in different direction this time which i’m really looking forward to.

    the video looks like fiyah, but the song coming from bey is crap period. and another thing beyonce might be 10x better than RIHANNA but beyonce is supposed to be better than rihanna because beyonce is rihanna’s mama
    and rihanna is slowly catching up to her mama
    give her some more time on the clock thank
    you bey for training your daughter so well.

    [Reply]

  46. say what

    bey is very proud of her daughter rihanna bey is watching her daughter rihanna breaking records and making history and bey is soproud of her daughter rihanna why aren’t you trolls proud of your fave’s daughter who like her mom beyonce, rihanna is a super star too like mom. like mom like daughter rihanna can’t help who her mom is.

    I’m pretty sure this will be a contender for video of the year. This is where the power of the music video plays a huge part in a songs success. Without a video to “Single Ladies,” I guarantee that song wouldn’t have been as big as it was. Same will happen to this song. Once this video is released I’m sure the song will rise on the charts and become a summer anthem. Just a guess:)

    YYEEEEEESSSSSSSS. Women stand up! This song is for us!! “Raise the stats for the college grads” THAT’S ME. SMU 2012 :)
    ppl don’t like this song bc its female empowerment. I love Rihanna but when has she made a song that really lifts up women? Most of her songs are about being lovesick or being a, excuse my french, HOE. Gaga is taking the weird thing to the MAX & no one really understand Judas.. & why would you make a song about the man who sent Jesus to his death? *dead* i also LOVE britney, but I have seen her performances and she doesn’t lose herself like she used to.. Beyonce is by far the best performer and artist of our generation.! this will be a big album for her. if you remember when “Crazy in love” ‘Deja Vu” and Single Ladies was released NO ONE liked those songs either UNTIL the video dropped! “4″ is going to be her BEST effort yet. :) GOOO B! & women stand up!! WE RUN THE WORLD!

    Yall talk all this bull when you guys have o realize shes manages herself now shes doing most of her work for her self. Not only that but at the same time totally risking her career with all the new shit and sound she bringing to the pop cultural and if anything gaga’s the image artist shes the only bitch wear all that overly done performance outfits she wears that shit off stage in public too. yall say she dresses have naked but jjust about any and all the pop female singers where nothing its all been that so if shes an image star then all of them are and beyonce is no image superstar shes just a pro at what she does no female would match up her live vocals the bitch sounds good on track and even better on stage yall are just a lil mad shes back and if thissong flopped then so let it be then at least shes didnt follow up everyone’s ass or gaga’s ass with that same pop sound. im tired of that ugly hoe anyway hoe been releasing song like crazy and has one coming out today ! beyonce is the queen and yall hate to hear it. AND HELL RIHANNA IS AN IMAGE ARTIST IT TOOK THIS BITCH 5 TIMES TO ACTUALLY DO GOOD OR MAKE IT SOME WHERE WITH HER MUSIC THE BITCH HAD SO MANY LOOKS JUST TO EVEN HAVE PEOPLE LIKE HER SHE NEVER TALK ABOUT NOTHING BUT SEX IN HER SONGS NO MEANINGS AND THE BITCH CANT SING AND IS TERRIBLE LIVE. I BET SHE DON’T EVEN PUT IN ANY IDEAS FOR HER MUSIC VIDEOS AND THAT BITCH JUST ALL TOGETHER ONE TERRIBLE ARTIST BEYONCE IS A 16 TIME GRAMMMY AWARD WINNING DIVA! BEYONCE EVEN SAID HER SEELF IN AN INTERVIEW THAT IM NOT LOOKING FOR ALL THAT THIS YEAR I JUST WANTED TO DO THE THINGS I ALWAYS WANTED TO DO WITH MY MUSIC FOR MY SELF NO ONE CAN DEFINE ME AND YALL MAD SHE TOOK THREE YEARS OFF AND ALREADY WON THE FAN FAVORITE ON BILLBOARD

    @Glen, she still needs to get some self esteem, why do you think she is always half naked? she can sing, she is beautiful, she is talented, she is rich…..why does she degrade herself to be trashy in her wardrobe? her self esteem is shot. she could sell out a stadium just with her natural beauty and voice.

    put some clothes on Beyonce. you are so talented! arent you tired of stripping down just to make men want you? only your husband should see you in that light. you are so talented, you can sing with clothes on to you know! stop selling your soul to the devil for wealth. you have plenty of money, more than you could ever spend in your life time. your self esteem is very low, because you have to put yourself out there half naked to get men to drool over you and they do, but you do it to make yourself feel worthy. pretty sad Beyonce. i am a fan but i truly as a young women as beautiful as your are….do not need to be over exposed everytime to sell a record. your money cant buy class besides you have plenty so work on your inner self.
