Best Thing I Never Had

New Music: Beyoncé – ‘Best Thing I Never Had’

She showed her fellow females that they can “Run the World,” bared her heart on the soulful “1+1,” and now Beyoncé takes a stand with the debut of “Best Thing I Never Had,” the second single from her upcoming album 4 (June 28). Written by Babyface and produced by Symbolyc One (Kanye West’s “POWER”), the midtempo tune sees the Grammy winner spewing vengeful lyrics about a lover who didn’t recognize a good thing until it was gone.

“When I think of the time that I almost loved you/ You showed your ass and I saw the real you/ Thank God you blew it, I thank God I dodged a bullet/ I’m so over you, so baby good looking out,” she sings before kicking him to the curb.

Karma’s a B.
