Blogs Lose Their Breath Over New Beyonce Single
Rocks Off's handy Google alert tells us that a new Beyonce single, "Girls (Who Run the World)" - or at least a demo - leaked onto the Internet sometime in the past 24 hours. Apparently Ryan Seacrest's L.A. radio show played the track, which seems to be audio from the Michael Jackson-esque video shoot (above), and a few blogs noticed.
You know, just a few. Here's what they're saying:
New Beyonce!!!: "It´s just a demo but we like it! It reminds us of classic Destiny´s Child. Like a 2011 Lose My Breath!" PerezHilton.com
"It leaked! And there's a lot going on." Vulture
"Set to a marching beat which samples Major Lazer's 'Pon de Floor,' pop's fearless leader wields her power over the opposite sex." Rap-Up
