Singer Beyonce Knowles has released a brand new track ‘Bow Down/I Been On.’
The song is part of her upcoming fifth solo album, which is yet to be named. It is a break from her usual soulful numbers.
The track produced by Hit-Boy, is a reflection of ‘her personal and professional life.’ The lyrics ‘I took some time to live my life, don’t think I’m just his little wife. Don’t get it twisted this is my sh*t’ are a direct aim at those women who are living a protected existence. In the track, she also describes her break from the music industry and her dream to rule the music charts once more.
The Destiny’s Child singer has lent very little vocals to the new 3 minute 34 second sound clip which seems to have more of a touch of rap and trashy lyrics. While the clip also appears to be a mixture from two different tracks of her upcoming, unnamed album, the second part of the song also contains a promo of London’s O2 Arena concert.
The 32-year-old singer posted the track on her official page along with a childhood photograph of hers with trophies in the background. She is yet to release an official statement about her new track. But there is already a lot of flutter in the virtual world after her new song went viral. A lot of mixed reviews have been posted by fans on Twitter.
The American singer/songwriter is all set to kick start her 2013 tour ‘The Mrs Carter Show.’ Her world tour begins in Belgrade (Serbia) on April 15, 2013 and reaches the United Kingdom on April 26, 2013. She is all set to perform in nearly 13 shows at UK and Ireland. This is inclusive of six shows at London’s O2 Arena in May.
Her last offering ‘4′ released in 2011, was her fourth album that was recorded in the studio. ‘4’ was composed with a mix of ballads, mid-tempo and up-tempo, giving it a classical touch. The songs were about monogamous bonds and ties, which mostly reflected her relationship with her partner.
Beyonce took a two-year music break after her last album ‘4’ was launched in 2011. The singer has been busy spending time with her daughter Blue Ivy. She recently performed at the Superbowl game, reuniting with her former band ‘Destiny’s Child.’
