Beyonce: 'Run the World (Girls)' Video Premiere!

Check out the video for Beyonce‘s latest single, “Run the World (Girls)“!

The 29-year-old entertainer fights off the enemy in style, rocking fashion from Givenchy and Emilio Pucci in the Francis Lawrence-directed video.

“[The song is] definitely riskier than something a bit more … simple,” Beyonce recently told Billboard.com about the song, which is off her upcoming album, 4.

“I just heard the track and loved that it was so different. It felt a bit African, a bit electronic and futuristic. It reminded me of what I love, which is mixing different cultures and eras – things that typically don’t go together – to create a new sound,” she shared.

In case you missed it, check out JustJared.com‘s exclusive preview of 4!

    YEEESSSS!!! YEEEEEESSSSSSS!!! EVERYTHING I WANTED AND MORE!!!!! OH MY GOD!! THAT WAS BEYOND EPIC. I ALMOST HAD A HEART ATTACK DURING THAT OPENING SEQUENCE WITH TOFO TOFO. YEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!

  • Kind of over

    Wow…that was really BAD

  • ryannnn

    desperately trying to be lady gaga and rihanna, especially in the
    “hard” video.

    FLOP.

  • nkenk

    is there a reason why she stole the beat from “Pon the Floor” ? Yeah I like major lazer’s version better….

  • boston61

    I think I know a song she did. She is total crap. Generic, forgettable, crap from a black girl who wants to be white soooooo bad.

  • KAR

    songs still lame.

  • OhMahGawh

    Song and video sucks but damn her body is SICK.

  • http://www.stickybuns.com Knife the Mack

    Well that was awful – makes me yearn for the end of the world… Death’s sweet embrace cannot come soon enough!

  • http://www.twitter.com/Jacnessa Just Saying

    @nkenk: I know right? and the beat isn’t even from Africa it’s from Jamaica Major Lazer made this beat with Vybz Kartel.

  • lilooo

    EEEEPPPPIIIIICCC PEOPLE! oh By the way HI HATERS!!!!! she did it again!

  • Em

    There was something very awkward about this. Her dancing was stiff. You can definitely tell that she hasn’t been doing it for a long time. (because of her break) And what was the purpose of the guys? They didn’t even have a dance off or anything, the guys just stood there. Everything was just awkward. The yellow dress dancing scene was cute, but other than that- blah. Doesn’t make me like the song any more, or less. I was expecting something better, especially after all of the talk about the video.

  • whyinthis business

    She nailed it! Keep it up Lady B and dont let these nuts get to you. Wonderful job and the clubs are banging to it all ready…

  • kablamo

    @boston61: She just keeps getting blonder and lighter skinned. Kind of reminds me of Jennifer Lopez. Put them through the hollywood machine and they slowly lose their ethnicity and eventually become blonde, and lighter skinned.

  • Koree

    You people are dumb!! She didn’t say the beat was African or from Africa, she said it FELT a bit African. Read first & make sure you understand what you’re reading smh.

  • Koree

    & might I add: SO MANY HATERS!! Now that’s how you know she is killing it!! Loved it and Love you Queen Bey!!!

  • Afarin

    Copying Lady Gaga and Rihanna? What a joke, Beyonce has been killing it way before those 2 idiots got famous, don’t even try to say she is copying them. I hate it when people compare everything to Gaga, she isn’t original herself.

  • Sara

    haters gonna hate ….
    AND BEYONCE STILL RUNS THIS MOTHAF#@

    GO B

  • anon

    wow that was really awful and B looks ugly in the video. Why does that sound so mechanical, like a a robot was singing?

  • elle

    I’m a girl and all but this song sucks as hell. The video is good but the song is really bad.

  • SweetLips

    That was just… AWFUL. Who the fck is dumb enough to waste money buying this crap? Don’t get me wrong, I’ve liked some of Beyonce’s songs but this? This is utter CRAP.

  • Kayla

    Where are the soulful R&B female singers today? I mean Rhianna and Beyonce have no soul….And when you call Black Eyed Peas hip hop, well something has changed here.

  • justme

    @ryannnn:

    Name the last time you seen Rihanna or Lady gaga actually dance.. I mean dance.. not wave your arms in the air either

  • caxposed

    To call this video “Fierce” is an understatement. Obviously this video is going to help the song climb up the charts… Honey B NEVER disappoints when it comes to music videos. Now I can honestly say that I can’t wait for “4″ to drop.

  • Lalalove

    She wrote the lyrics, huh? She is one heck of a performer though!

  • John

    All the racists and haters on JJ are so predictably pathetically; always trying to drag Beyonce down. Keep trying because it is never going to happen. YOU WILL NEVER BRING THIS TALENTED BLACK WOMAN DOWN!!! NEVER!!!!!

    LONG LIVE THE QUEEN
    LOVE LIVE QUEEN BEYONCE

  • Oheneba1

    the video is orgasm for the eyes but the song isnt her best……

  • J-log

    beautiful face and great pair of legs!

  • dumdeedum

    My American Idol was interrupted for this?? This sucked. Beyonce does it to herself by hyping things up as the biggest vid ever, she’s making her own music, blah blah stupid. Even more stupid is that in this song she even goes on to talk about her greatness when this is a FAIL. I really loved pon de floor, she just shat all over it with her yelling and faux-feminism. And what’s with the recycled moves? When she gets down on her knees (again) that came right out of the crazy in love vid.

  • sourpatch575

    She looks like a BLACK BRITNEY SPEARS!

  • smith

    She really wants to be white!

  • haha

    Don’t compare B with Gaga or Rihana. Gaga is nothing but a freak and Rihana can’t sing a tune.

  • um

    Haters can hate. the more you do the more she is in the limelight!!!!

    16 GRAMMY’S!!!! HATE ALL YOU WANT!!!! CAN’t STOP BEYONCE!!!!

  • lilia mazunina

    THIS’S WHITNEY HOUSTON ON THE PIC. LOL!

  • Kesha

    Love it!

  • sea

    Beyonce and JLO: who’s copying who??

  • Sheigh

    She needs simplicity!
    Too much for eyes and ears!
    She’s gone too far!

  • sb

    LOL!!!! Just started looking at the video and had to stop after a min, those retarded moves are embarrassing to watch.

  • Sofie

    wondering if you all who think this is a cool video & song.. can separate your liking Beyonce & liking the song…cus this one is bad! horrible dancing also.

  • kathleen

    Im a gr8 fan of Beyonce but I hav to say this was really disapponting-as somebody else commented above shes trying to be too cutting edge and its not working- she’s better when she sings balads too. Hope the whole album isnt this dissaponting
