Beyonce – Bow Down/I Been On | MUSIC

Maaaaaaaan, NOBODY was ready for this. Beyonce has teased us, and teased us, and teased us since the very beginning of the year; but all without releasing new music. First, there was news of her $50 Million deal with Pepsi. Next, it was the red hot GQ coverin January , which led to much speculation that her single would drop right before the Super Bowl. Then there was the Presidential Inauguration, National Anthem buzz. Then, she shut her haters up in New Orleans singing the anthem live during a press conference for her performance later that weekend. That performance mentioned before was the 2013 NFL SuperBowl Halftime Show. She destroyed the New Orleans Super Dome re-united legendary R&B girl group, Destiny’s Child, and even made the power go out in the dome for 40 minutes succeeding her performance. After that saw Beyonce throw up her set (gang reference) at the 2013 Grammy’s where she sat front row with husband Jay-Z, and her new partner in slayage, Justin TImberlake. After the Grammy’s, the cover of Vogue was released. After that a tour video and news about The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour was announced. And after ALL of that, still no single.

Well today, when seemingly her fans could wait no longer, Beyonce let loose a ferocious, hand hitting, shit talking, trap flavored record entitled “Bow Down/I Been On.” The “song” is actualy a mash-up of two records, the first being produced by Hit-Boy, the second being produced by Polow Da Don and Timbaland. And both records, my gawd, both records feature Beyonce like you’ve never heard her before. Talking immense amounts of shit, cursing up a storm, chopping and screwing her voice, singing opera notes…it’s crazy. Check out the song below:

EPIC! Granted, this clearly isn’t first single material (it’ll probably live as some sort of album intro or interlude), but wow! Wow! Wow! This bitch went HAM. If I were a R&B singer, and I heard this song, and these lyrics, I would definitely be feeling some type of way right now. I mean, sheeeesh! It’s nice to hear somebody who people love to claim has no personality, come to life in such a hood, raw way. She plays the trophy wife and follows Jay around when he’s on tour, but don’t get it twisted, she’s still that bitch that these other singers have wanted to be since they were little girls!

Beyonce will head out on her World Tour in exactly a month’s time, so if this is any indication of what we’re in for, bishes better get ready. It’s Bey Season.
