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:
