The over-synthesized pop simply must end. Beyonce’s next single was leaked to the Internet a couple of days ago, prompting the pop singer to release the song earlier than anticipated. The song was just released to iTunes, but Ryan Seacrest got to release the audio track yesterday.
It’s called “(Girls) Who Run The World” and features everything bad about heavily studio-ized music today. It sounds like something that will give you a seizure. It features European club beats, but then adds Beyonce’s same style of vocals as all of her past songs. The two styles clash, and badly.
Add the fact that the chorus keeps repeating, “Who run this mother…” (which pretty blatantly comes across as motherf***er). Yeah, really great message. It’s really repetative and features a simpler beat than Gwen Stefani’s horrible “Hollaback Girl.”
