Well, it has been about six months since we last heard from Beyonce, which means we’re way overdue for more Beyonce on the airwaves.
Guess she’s never heard the old adage “absence makes the heart grow fonder.”
Yesterday, Bey’s “Girls (Who Run the World)” leaked online, which is being touted as the first single of her new album. As you can guess from the title, it’s another girl-power anthem. Think of it as “Independent Women 2011.” Sort of like how “Single Ladies” was “Independent Women 2008.” And how “Me Myself and I” was “Independent Women 2003.” This woman needs to diversify her topics.
“Girls” isn’t bad but it starts to drag after a couple of minutes. It might be too over the top to become a radio hit, but that’s just my jaded opinion.
I’ll bet my collection of vintage ties that it’ll be the theme of the new Charlie’s Angels movie. Wait and see.
I didn’t embed the video – didn’t want Mathew Knowles trying to shut us down – so, here’s a link. Let us know what you think.
