Beyoncé released the hit single “(Girls) Run The World” six years ago on this day. It was released as the first single off of her fourth album, 4, in 2011. Beyoncé wanted listeners to be motivated by something different, including a mixture of different cultures and eras, a new sound, and a message which would give women strength.
The song was heavily sampled on “Pon De Floor” by Major Lazer. Several people have critiqued the song and compared it to “Independent Women,” but “(Girls) Run The World” takes even more of an approach towards female empowerment.
