Columbia Records announced that they will release ’4,’ the fourth solo album for Beyonce, on Tuesday, June 28. The album was recorded over the past two years, and signifies not only her fourth solo effort, but the day of her birth. She also claims the title is a personal gift to her fans, as her fans urged her to name the album for her special number. That Beyonce, always giving back.
The highly anticipated video for ‘Run The World (Girls)’ was also released yesterday, and did not disappoint. The video is pure fire, focused entirely on dance, fashion and theatrics. I love the video – Beyonce proves she’s still the queen, and can indeed run the world. The video was filmed in LA and the Mojave Desert over three days in April. The video is directed by Francis Lawrence and contains over 200 dancers and a ton of exotic animals.
The video is a breath of fresh air. Finally, a singer releases a video with good dancing, good music, and good overall production. Videos are supposed to entertain and accompany the song – it’s got to bring it. And this definitely does.
Beyonce has released her newest single, called ‘Run The World (Girls),’ and it’s nothing short of fire.
Much like her single ‘Single Ladies,’ the song is a female anthem with heavy dance beats. I can see this being a smash hit… actually, it’s already on its way!
My only critique is that the song is a little repetitive… we get it Beyonce, you run the world. You don’t have to shout it over and over for four minutes. Whatever, it has a good beat and catchy chorus, so I’ll forgive her this time around. Return of Queen Beyonce!
