Beyonce's new song, 'Girls (Who Run The World),' leaks online
Images were all over the Internet last week from the set of a music video, widely reported to be the clip accompanying the single "Girls" from her new album, which is expected in June.
Now a demo version of the track "Girls (Who Run the World)" has leaked and lives in various fan-created tribute clips on YouTube. Quick insight into the song: It's about girls who run the world.
"Who run this ... ?" Beyonce asks with well-deserved authority, preaching "make your check come at they neck / disrespect us? no they won't."
"Girls" has a harder edge than her milestone "Independent Women Pt. 1," but is nowhere near the gritty, futuristic chic of "Diva," complete with Brian Lichtenberg headgear.
