It’s been a while yes, but what better way to make my return to music blogging than with the latest Beyoncé single Run the World (Girls). An anthemic war chant, this song sounds surprisingly MIA influenced with its naked, but dance inducing drum tracks and barely there baseline. The video features several Alexander McQueen looks, and serves as a reminder that Beyoncé is one of the great pop artists of our generation (and that Lady Gaga is forcing everyone to step up art part of performance artistry in music).
Unfortunately, the video can’t be embedded, so you’ll have to click through to see the whole shibang. Its totally worth it though.
