We knew this day was coming. The day that Beyoncé would return and in one fell swoop show Rihanna Goat, Keri Lotion, and all the rest of those female pop/R&B tarts of questionable vocal talent to their seats near the exit. Thankfully that day is today. Well, technically this leaked yesterday, but the lo-fi demo version was kinda wack sauce. However, with the official version now surfacing online of "(Run The World) Girls," it's a foregone conclusion that Bey has another out-of-the-ballpark hit on her hands. Using the infectious Major Lazer "Pon De Floor" sample was a genius move by producer Switch. Beyoncé's female empowerment leaning lyrics are equally as in your face ("eff you, pay me" -- is she talking to her daddy/former manager Mathew Knowles?) as the track's bombastic thump. Get used to this song, because it will be everywhere from the clubs to the curb come summertime. Resistance is futile.
