Beyoncé puts your faves on notice!

The biggest star on the planet left your low rent faves shaking in their Payless stilettos yesterday when a 15 second snippet of her next era defining anthem hit the net. "Girls (That Run The World)" - as it is rumoured to be called - shows that Beyoncé is on a wig snatching mission. While manufactured pop robots like Britney and Rihanna launched recent albums with generic dance trash from mainstream producers like Max Martin and Stargate, Queen B refuses to play it safe. She continues to push the boundaries of popular music by dropping an electro-house/urban infusion that samples Major Lazer's underground club classic "Pon De Floor". To me it sounds a bit like "Ring The Alarm" on crack, which could signal a return to the hood beats of "B'Day". At first, I thought that was a bad move but as usual Bey is ten steps ahead. With everyone doing dance-pop at the moment, the urban market is hers for the taking. I'm sure she'll still do some ballads and pop songs but I'm glad Beyjesus is keeping it real. So back to "Girls (That Run The World)". It's a startling concoction that takes a couple of listens to fully appreciate but it's so addictive. All the song needs is a gigantic chorus and Round IV is off to the perfect start.

I can't be arsed listening to low-quality clips, but the description "Ring The Alarm on crack" sounds promising. I may be the only person who genuinely thinks that B-Day is her best work. Too bad about I am Sashay Away.

PS Sol-Angel's album will still be better.

I've grown to love B'Day more and more with time. I just wasn't ready for it.

One of her dancers is now saying that this isn't the song. I still think it is but who knows?
