Beyoncé to Premiere ‘Run the World (Girls)’ Video on ‘American Idol’

Beyoncé

It’s official. Beyoncé will debut her new video for “Run the World (Girls)” in front of millions on “American Idol” this week.

The visuals for the first single from the singer’s fourth solo album 4 will air Wednesday, May 18, on Fox’s “American Idol,” her official website confirmed. Following the TV broadcast, the video will be available online.

Originally scheduled to premiere last Friday on VEVO, the Francis Lawrence-directed clip was mysteriously delayed. It was shot over several days in California in April.

It is unclear whether Beyoncé will be on hand to drop off her video, but her cousin hinted at a possible appearance. “Tune in Wednesday May 18th to see Beyonce on American Idol,” tweeted Angie Beyince.

A sneak peek can be seen here.

    Its funny how Beyonce stans are so damn arrogant she gonna slay this the queen shut it down that. J Lo had Idol when her album came out and her album still tanked. Beyonce stans are the most fucked up people in the world they give her too much credit. I don’t understand how they think that the video will help that flop single. If the song was all that it would be rising in Billboard not tanking and on I tunes its doing even worse. She wont be #1 even with idol lmao.

    RichGirlPlanet Reply:

    @antonio, Some of her songs debuted at 77 and spots similar as such and later moved to number 1 for WEEKS and WEEKS on end. Others have their songs debut at number 1 and it quickly falls down the charts. WHO RUN THIS MOTHA?

    @antonio the real question is where were u?? We were here defending it, talking bout how it was her second highest debut ever!!!

    She never debuts songs at number one, she’s 10x more successful than 99% of the artists who do!!! She sells albums and her songs do well, she doesn’t just pull off one extreme!! Wait til her album comes out, it’s gonna sell more first week than Riri and Katy combined!

  32. rockwitu

    LMAOOOO you guys are talking about so it starts, yall know what that means, let the slaying begin. YOU STANS HAVE NOT LEARNED ANYTHING FROM THE LAST COUPLE WEEKS AS THE SONG CONTINUES TO FLOP HARD. Gosh, humble yourselves for once. There is officially NO slaying going on. She didn’t slay out the gate, pushed back the video and luckily for her she didn’t set a release date for the album because she would be pushing that mess back too. LOL, slaying, yeah, right. That song will get a nudge on iTunes, but it is getting no radio airplay and the two together -= Billboard magic. Just drop the next single and keep it moving already!

    [Reply]

    mofan95 Reply:

    @rockwitu, STFU the song is getting radio airplay. the song moved from 72 to 58 on the Airplay chart with 20 million audience impressions! and if it wasnt getting airplay i highly doubt it would be debuting on the pop charts like it did. Sitting nice at number 37 with airplay on that format rising!

    I am so excited to see this!!! I was kind of guessing that she would’ve premiered it at the Billboard Music Awards this coming Sunday because she was going to be honored with the Millenium Award. Then again, they never premiere videos at award shows but it could’ve been a good idea. Beyonce knows what she’s doing and this album will be successful, I know it.

    Look, I’m gon do like the name says and keep it real with stans who don’t understand why people visit B’s posts….IT’S BECAUSE OF YOU! Most of the entertainment involving B’s latest releases have been YOU!

    For weeks, you shoved your hateful words of “B’s gon slay…” and “Bitches watch ya wigs…” and other ignorant comments in people’s face that, NATURALLY people like to see YOUR reaction when you…..finally….notice…..that…..beyonce…..is….not…..PERFECT!

    Your love for her is sometimes sickening (even to a healthy B fan) and it just feels damn good to see you eat your words.

    So what B’s song ain’t doing good. It’s actually more entertaining to see ya’ll make up excuses for your piss poor behavior in the previous weeks. Let this be a lesson to you…always, always, ALWAYS keep it classy.

    Cause diva-esque, bitchy, downright STANK behavior no matter who you’re supporting ain’t a good look for you or your girl.
