Listen: Beyonce releases new track, commands us to ‘Bow Down’
Bow down, folks, Queen Bey is back with new music. Not that she was ever gone considering she’s already had an extremely successful year and it’s only mid-March.
Beyonce released her first new track “Bow Down/I Been On” since her album “4″ was released in 2011.
The song sounds much different from the “Single Ladies” Beyonce we’ve come to love. This doesn’t mean it isn’t perfect.
“I took some time to live my life, but don’t think I’m just his little wife / Don’t get it twisted, get it twisted, this my s—, bow down, bitches,” she sings on the track, as if the world hasn’t bowed already.
The song has been streamed on SoundCloud more than 1 million times in about 24 hours.
It is not yet clear whether this new track is part of a new album or released as a bonus single.
Not only did Beyonce release a new song, she also posted a photo of herself as a young girl, dressed like a princess, surrounded by a slew of trophies. It’s so Beyonce, it’s perfect.
This is really shaping up to be Mrs. Carter’s year. She’s already sung the national anthem at President Barack Obama’s inauguration, killed it at the Super Bowl halftime show, released a biographical movie on HBO, and tickets for her upcoming summer tour are already selling like hotcakes.
