Round IV officially begins tonight as "Run The World (Girls)" is rushed to iTunes. I can hardly breathe. Hurricane Bey is coming and the air is thick with snatched wigs and shattered dreams. Lock down your faves and pray for mercy! Today also delivered some new details about the legendary diva's new smash. Most of us were under the impression that Diplo produced the track given the previous confirmation that he worked on the album and the fact that the song samples Major Lazer's "Pon De Floor". Diplo is one half of Major Lazer. As it turns out, the other half of Major Lazer - Switch - produced the track with Beyoncé herself.
Honestly, Honey B's talent astounds me. Singer, dancer, actress, fashion mogul. Is there anything she can't do? Hell, she even co-wrote the song with The-Dream. Bow down, bitches! As much as I'm feeling the "Run The World (Girls)", I don't like the cover. It looks rushed and was obviously shot on the set of the video between takes. After the iconic "I Am... Sasha Fierce" artwork, this is a let down. Happily, the video itself looks amazing. Team Knowles released a 15 second teaser today and it slays me. Bey straddling that black stallion like a Queen, while her immaculate lace-front blows in the breeze like strands of gold is the defining image of 2011. Watch in awe below!
