Another forgettable Beyonce song. Big Whoop!

# 3

It’s horrible!!! And who cares about her? This song ridiculously shows she’s so full of herself! LOL!

# 4

dont like it

# 5

I thought this would be better this is crap Beyonce! I liked her older stuff than this new stuff!

# 6

Is she trying to be hip with that cover?

# 7

It’s not even a full song. It’s more like a buzz song to get people hype for the album.

What celebrity isn’t full of themselves? Most music artist are nowadays, are you new?

# 8

@cyn: No, I am not new. Her song exagerates way too much. I know celebrities in general are full of themselves but this song is beyond ridiculous.

I LOVE THIS, BOW DOWN HATERS TO THE KING B

:( I love bet but hate this song

This is obviously not a song! She only sings in like the first 30 seconds! Relax it’s just something to hype up her fans. Sort of like a snippet to get fans excited for her album. Obviously, thought you could’ve figured that out yourself… She is appearing on GMA. excited for that!

GMA tomorrow for a special announcement*

The chorus reminds of of “Teach Me How to Dougie”

these are two different tracks…
‘Bow Down’ is by HitBoy and ‘I Been On’ by PolowDaDon & Timbaland.

Because tell other women to bow down ******* is so empowering…. F**K this fake B*tch and all the idiots who can’t see it.

She has an amazing voice!

Horrible song

@Annie: Exactly, it’s just a snippet of what’s to come. You can’t keep doing the same old thing, an artist has to evolve to stay relevant.

I liked the Bow Down part, but the rest of the song was a mess. Was waiting for Bee to come back on the track but she never did.

this is not a single people…just an intro to her tour

Boring…just like her Superbowl Performance….RETIRE !!!!!

Half baked idea just to sell tickets. Lameyonce !

BORINGGGG @ 03/17/2013 at 6:57 pm

2 out of 5*

Journalistic @ 03/17/2013 at 6:59 pm

Just because this isn’t a single doesn’t mean it’s still not terrible. “Bow down b**ches???” Didn’t she ask how to maintain humility in her documentary? Well this isn’t it.

just sayin @ 03/17/2013 at 7:00 pm

Really!:lmao

R I P Forever Amen @ 03/17/2013 at 7:03 pm

“I Been On” is like a trap version of Janet’s “This Time” and you are certainly going down gurl !!!!!!!!

The end is near….Hahhahahahhaahaha

JAMES WITT @ 03/17/2013 at 7:05 pm

It sucks!!! This is the first thing she has ever done that I didn’t like. A really bad direction to get her career back on track.

Stripper Child ex @ 03/17/2013 at 7:06 pm

Not going to see her show….she is so 5 years ago. Bye Beyawnce.

Lets say… Amen, wake me up when she has a new idea.

Pathetic Boring Lame @ 03/17/2013 at 7:07 pm

********whorrible just like her costumes***********

She should retire with GaGa !!!!!!!

Taylor Fans Forever @ 03/17/2013 at 7:16 pm

PLEASE BEYONCE …SIT DOWN AND POP OUT MORE APE BABIES……. :(

Is this a Joke?

This song is GARBAGE. What is she like 31 now? It’s time to grow up. I love that song ‘I was Here’ from her last album. Why can’t she start making more music like that?

Flopmamayonce @ 03/17/2013 at 7:25 pm

This is a hot mess of Ciara-proportions !!!!! *Yawn*

Desperate Mrs Carter Tour…..sad sad sad !

Shaqunaya @ 03/17/2013 at 7:26 pm

……a has-been !

An epic fail comeback from Beyonce! :(

uhm.. that was literally terrible. maybe she’s trying to trick us the way JT did with Suit and Tie and come out with something good after.. but this is not a song.

WHAT A PIECE OF $hit….FLUSH IT AND SIT DOWN.

beyonce is so fake and lame…..calling other women B***** is just going to far. You are older than the women you are speaking to and should try to be better on every album this is just a disgrace to your self and…im just gonna say it GROW UP LAME.

ZzzzZzzzzz @ 03/17/2013 at 7:30 pm

SAME GARBAGE…DIFFERENT SONGS.

YUCKY and TACKY !!!!!

B**CH. YOU ARE NOT 21 YO…..

.......is @ 03/17/2013 at 7:47 pm

horrible !

This is so not her. Sounds like somethin rihanna shoulda done, and Beyonce is way better than that. Horrible song. She contradicts herself so much…this is definitely not a sign of humility.

She Is Boring @ 03/17/2013 at 7:48 pm

…….her last album? Hopefully.

She is over @ 03/17/2013 at 7:49 pm

Beyonce is a done deal !!!!!!! :(

Bey.....Is @ 03/17/2013 at 7:50 pm

…done! RIP

Flopyonce @ 03/17/2013 at 7:51 pm

Flooooppppppp!!!!!!

Poor woman,she’s so desperate that she does everything to get attention and to be in the media.I predict another flop in her futile career.Her ego is out of control,and that’s sad.This may be her last album and the beggining of her retirement,if she doesn’t control her ego.I know i won’t get this album,not even for free.She’s fake and pathetic.If not even her daughter made BeYAWNce be less annoying,she’s doomed.

What horrendous English it’s as if she just came from the lowest of street trash and raided a recording studio then broke into a persons home and pretended to be of high status and linage – minus the actual class, integrity or intelligence.

What a positively vile woman.

I wish I had her ego

“I took some time to live my life, but don’t think I’m just his little wife”

Says the woman who called her tour The Mrs Carter Show Tour.

Professional mid-life crisis much? Its like she’s trying to remind everybody that she’s deserves all the respect and than she offers us a pile of crap like this song and calls it gold. Sorry bey but you might be through if you keep this **** up. You are not 22 anymore. WOMAN UP!

BOW DOWN *******!!!!!

This sounds like an intro to me still entertaining :-)

Trash, trash, and more trash!! So sick of this person. Since she got married we’ve seen more of her naked ass than I care to see. She’s shallow, too worried about her pr image and a fake. It’s time for her to take some serious time off and go find herself and relieve us all of the disasters she call music.

And she says that she is humble.What a joke!

SORRY… THIS **** IS HOT. some of yall might not get it but yeah…. this **** fire. may not be cute to some of yall gaga fans an all but… She stays true to her lane.

lol had to stop after 2 secs of it, horrible song! and disrespectful & so egotistical., plss

so boringggggggggggggg as always

NOT her new single. Just a buzz song and it’s over a year old. She played it at her Revel concert

Wtf did i just listen to? in the beginning she sings “when you were lil girls you wanted to be in my world…bow down b******” Umm so the lil girls who idolized you in the late 90s/00s should bow down and be called *******? Should I be offended. This shouldn’t be a single.

Is the class and humility that Beyawnce’s supposedly has? It’s ridiculous and contradictory to everything that she and her fans say about her. She really needs to get over herself and grow up. So fake! I wonder what Michelle Obama has to say about this?

I DONT LIKE IT !!!!! I really liked the old songs she had. the more slow numbers.

KindaShocked @ 03/18/2013 at 2:04 am

Gotdamn, has Beyonce been body snatched by Nicki Minaj??

Naw, you’re not his little wife. You’re his little puppet.

@Thats Right:

You are so sad. I feel sorry for you. What joy do you get from hating black people so much.That kind of hate towards people is unhealthy. When do you have time for love? Seek help.

Obama should not be associated with this low morals money grabbing couple. They just want a presidential publicity to stay relevant in the public eye. Sad joke of the decade- Beyonce and Jay-Z and Obama doesnt see that yet…. :(

Aunt Jemima @ 03/18/2013 at 3:11 am

The American biggest liar- lipsyching pig who is desperately to make a comeback but has failed miserably !

I don’t like this.. at all :(

like it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

she is so annoying as fcuk !!!!!!

maybe Michelle could save Bey’s career by buying her singles and tickets in bulk for her white house staff ????? LOL

THE LIPSYCHING QUEEN IS BACK !!!! Zzz

I feel sad for her daughter…really. What kind of mother would sing this garbage…

Flop comeback….incoherent and lackluster songs from a has been diva. K bye..

i have no time/respect for profanity and wannabe ghetto stripper…..

AMAZINGGGGG!!!! THE OPERA>

an opinion @ 03/18/2013 at 11:24 am

Now I understand why Beyonce and Gwyneth Paltrow are friends. Both are arrogant and patronizing.

I’m a fan of B but this song is NOT a great one. Not feeling it and to me it seems beneath her but hey to each their own.

All these people with these negative comments on a person they don’t even know personally tells me what kind of people they are. Some of the comments on here are totally not necessary!! If you like the song say you like it, if you don’t say you don’t and keep it moving! I would like to know what people would think and say about yall! Especially since you have no talent, no money, no beauty and can’t sing a note.

sunnyautumn @ 03/18/2013 at 12:27 pm

Bow down? She is trying too hard to act like someone in their early 20s.

Beyonce is ALLOWED to be full of herself lol. She runs the world haters. This #BeyNation. KNOW THIS

Ayyye different and definitely a risk but taking mad props to Beyonce.

Ummm, for people who don’t know or understand what “screw” music is. This is what she did. She is paying homage to the music that originated in H-town. It’s chopped and scrwed. duh…. I don’t care what anyone says, this beat is sick!!!! Hitboy killed it!!!

@funny witch:

yes.

she is going about it WRONG. Run The World was amazing but bcause it wasnt recieved well she began this campaign to be liked and relatable…THEN this massive attitude and EGO came out and it’s NONSTOP!!!

she is bugging me.hard.

Horrible! I don’t know what she was thinking when she made this song.. I usually am a fan of Beyonce but I feel like she’s trying to stay relevant and compete with younger, newer, better artist. Bow down b****s? B**** please!

Can’t Say Queen Bey, don’t get you talking lol! On another note check out Jewish Soul Singer Amy Faithe as she covers Emile Sande Smash Hit!! “Next To Me” http://youtu.be/HUNnE17l638

She needs to sing irreplaceable to herself….TO THE LEFT, TO THE LEFT!!!!

I BOW to no one FAKEONCE @ 03/19/2013 at 8:48 am

To Beyonce and her fans, this dumb as rock no speaking woman just killed her career. This thing is blowing up all over the internet and it looks bad for Beyonce. You don’t tell people to bow down to you. Backlash, Backlash and a double backlash. Boycott Beyonce’s new album everybody and lets have her bow down to us. We put her where she is and we can make some one else hot while she fades out.

This song is Trash!!!

DoneWithHer @ 03/19/2013 at 11:31 am

She is so FAKE!
if her “good” side is claiming Christianity, why would she say bow down.. towards herself??? idolization much?? FAKE much??
snippet or not this crap sucks.
beyonce is and has been old news.
and her little act of “struggling” between the good girl “beyonce” and the bad side “sasha fierce”. it’s quite OBVIOUS which one she choose by stating
“dont think im just his little wife”
Everyone knows Jay-z is bad news,, Neyo even stated “Jay-z is not someone you want mad at you.”
smh.. Yal some DUMB fans if you really bow down to someone who demands it calling you a ***** in the process…

DoneWithHer @ 03/19/2013 at 11:36 am

@Taylor Fans Forever:

why should she ?? its not like she even cares for the one she has already!
out trying to make a comeback.. she needs to go home and take care of her child instead of being selfish and have all the attention on her,,
it aint about her no more
#oldnews

RevaDaDiva @ 03/19/2013 at 1:40 pm

Mrs Queen Carter killed it again…see ppl think you always are going to be nice and polite but everyone WOMAN has a “im feed up side”. real. talk don’t hate.

Keep it up B

THIS IS NOTHING TO BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY. JUST A LIL STUDIO FUN! MY GASH, YOU GUYS ARE SO EMOTIONAL LOL. I HIGHLY DOUBT IF THIS WILL EVEN BE ON HER NEXT ALBUM. FIRST OFF, IT SOUNDS VERY UNDERGROUND AND RATCHET! NOWHERE NEAR THE BEYONCE, GOOD QUALITY CALIBER.

@boobs:

If she wants to give a teaser she needs to take a page out of the Birthday Cake book. That got people wanting more, This gets people grabbing the remote faster. Nothing sexy or seductive about this song.

Realy Bey? Really? i think we just got punked.

Rochelle Maclin @ 03/19/2013 at 4:52 pm

After having a baby and sining at the inauguration. I would not think beyonce would come out with this dump song. I hate it!!!!! Why should people bow down to you?? Because you have money!!!! The only person I will bow down to is my Lord Jesus Christ. Beyonce who do you think you are God??? Just like your on top it can all come down. See how money and power go to people head. STOP IT.

SpeakTruth @ 03/19/2013 at 8:03 pm

Seriously? Is this what music has come to? She needs to get off her high horse, she’s so full of herself. You make music Beyonce, that’s it. You’re not God…there is only one worthy of our worship and His name is not Beyonce, sorry

First of all, this song sounds like GARBAGE. Second of all, how can you claim to be a Christian and you have the nerve to say BOW DOWN…to who? YOU? Last time I checked, she is NOT God. You do not run anybody’s world, at least not mine. You need to eat some humble pie, chick.

Beyonce, are you really this insecure that you need to make a derogatory, expletive laden song to proclaim that you are the best? If you really were the best, you wouldn’t need to say it. Threatened much?

Aren’t you Ms. Women Run the World and now you’re out here calling us “*******”? Really? Beyonce, get your story straight and figure who you are. Not something NINA SIMONE would do, since you had the nerve to liken yourself to her (which was a total farse, given you are her antithesis in every way).

Maybe some of your numb-skull, stupid worshippers to whom you can do no wrong (those who refer to her as “Queen Bey”) worship you Beyonce, but I for one will not, do not, never have, and never will. I don’t even understand how it is possible to admire and worship someone as much as some of these commenters do….it’s pathetic and scary.

Anyway, this song is trash. Beyonce, you are old news. Stop it. Go nurse your child or something.

@patri:
I love Beyonce but what the hell was that? Sounded like it was going to be jamming, then went into some gothic instrumentals. Not feeling it!

@NAY:
You are so right. This girl is too full of herself. When she reaches Michael Jackson or even Madonna status she’ll be doing something. Until then I wish she would go somewhere and learn to speak. AND, somehow she’s convinced she can’t get attention unless she’s half-naked. She is EXTREMELY insecure and has very low self-esteem. YET she’s called a role model??????!!!!! I can only pray for her. Another thing, she’s always saying how humble she is. She LOVES this attention and glory. She’s greedy for it, you can see it in her eyes. Humble people don’t have to proclaim it, it can be seen and heard by the way they speak and is SEEN in their mannerisms. This is just like in the Bible, about hypocrites who stand on rooftops and announce their salvation, what good people they are, etc. While a true Christian shows Christ by how they live, WITHOUT their having to scream it out. And we all have to remember, the devil is powerful and tricky, he wants us to bow down to him too. Hmmmmmmmm. Hey Bey, if you performed with clothes on would you still get the attention? TRY IT. A woman’s body is sacred and should be treated as such – first by the woman herself. By now you all know I’m not a Beyonce fan. For all of the geniuses who call people like myself haters, have you ever hard of preference and opinion?

@Journalistic:

Well said JOURNALISTIC. HUMILITY, Beyonce, HUMILITY. Think about it, she is ALWAYS saying how humble she is. Humble people don’t NEED to say it. They show it. She LOVES the fame and attention, she’s greedy for it, you can see it in her eyes. The girl has low self-esteem, or she would not be near-naked ALL of the time. And she’s obviously not well educated,( the way she speaks). She feels she won’t get any attention if she puts some clothes on. And for those of you who call people with the same opinion as mine, haters, there are two little things that most grown-up mature people understand, PREFERENCE and OPINION. I don’t hate her, I feel sorry for her. I’m as poor as dirt, and she is filthy rich, but, somehow I feel so sorry for her. So, I pray for her.

@Angelina:

@Angelina – I was JUST thinking the SAME EXACT THING. !!!!! LOL And since when did a President and First Lady hang out with rappers and hip hop people anyway. What is up with THAT? I want my prez and 1st lady to be focused on world security. Not on someone who feels they can’t get attention unless they’re near-naked. This girl has NO IDEA what humble means let alone how to be humble. But she’s always saying how humble she is. She needs to a lesson from some of our previous truly humble, truly ENTERTAINING artists. She is fame and attention hungry, and and she is fake. She loves it, ergo, she is NOT humble, she’s simply FULL OF HERSELF………. For the people who would call us haters, you all need to know that there are two things most of us grown-up and mature people know, we are ALL entitled to preferences and opinions. And these are MINE.

@funny witch:

@Funny Witch – I LOVE YOU. Beyonce is SO full of herself she CAN’T see anything else. HUMBLE – NO. SELF-ESTEEM – NO, if she had any she wouldn’t feel she needs to be near-naked to get attention. Go away Beyonce.

@Rohan:

@ROHAN – I don’t know how old you are, but you are obviously not old enough to understand what grown up and mature people know. We are ALL entitled to two very specific things: PREFERENCE and OPINION. And the last time I checked we still live in a free country. If you don’t like what we’re saying about Beyonce, click your mouse. No one is forcing you to read these comments. Do you have talent, beauty(?), money, and are you able to sing a note? I haven’t read one comment of anyone claiming any of these things. Yet, it sounds TO ME, like you are
assuming that none of us have any of these qualities. Baby, we are ONLY sharing our PREFENCES AND OPINIONS just like you are.

@CU DE GRUDE:

I just told ROHAN the same thing I’m gonna tell you. Grown-up, mature people understand that there are TWO things for sure, that we ALL are entitled to – PREFERENCE and OPINION. We don’t HAVE to be ‘haters’ just becasue we’re not Beyonce fans. PREFERENCE and OPINION. Remember that, it’ll take you a long way in life. I’m thinking that you are not a grown-up, mature person, yet. But you will be someday.

@Elijah:

@ELIJAH- It’s obvious you are very young, if you weren”t you would know that PREFERENCE and OPINION is open to EVERYONE. Because some of us are not Beyonce fans does not make us ‘haters’. It ONLY means that w have a different PREFERENCE and OPINION of her than you do. That’s it and that’s ALL it means.

@Go Home:

@GO HOME – Have we EVER heard of or had a Prez and 1st lady who were best buds with rappers and hip hoppers ? !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SMH. I want MY president and 1st lady to concern themselves with NATIONAL SECURITY, our social security, and everything else relevant to being the prez and 1st. lady. Well I guess ther really is a FIRST time for everything. And this is one of them.

@Rochelle Maclin:

@Rochelle Maclin – You are so RIGHT. We are to bow to none other than God. And Beyonce has the NERVE to tell someone to bow down to her. !!!!!! REMEMBER THE DEVIL WANTED US TO BOW DOWN TO HIM, TOO. AND LOOK WHAT HAPPENED TO HIM…… It’s just a matter of time before God is sick of her haughtiness, and she will have to bow down to HIM.

@DiDi You sound like a racist fool. Why shouldn’t the President and First Lady be friends with rappers and hip hoppers? They’re friends with rockers and country westerners!!! What the others shiii don’t stink or something? SMH. Beyoncé spoke her mind and you clowns have to deal with it. She will continue to rule the game for at least another 10 strong years and there’s nothing you can do about it but Bow Down *******!!!

PS. The shout out to Willie D was too gangsta!!!!

OOOhh H*** nah… in my opinion she is loved by many because she never had to something like that… She know she’s nice on what she do why make a song like that when it was so unnecessary… i love beyonce For the Music she puts out but I’m with keisha On that one.Over all there is Many,Many amazing artist Out there.

i liked it before the creepy rappers(i think tehy are rappers idk) came in

Low class and embarrassing, the anthem of a narcissist.

PlushsizeDiva @ 03/30/2013 at 10:22 pm

Everyone is so upset for nothing. It was a song made for pure entertainment. Yes it was vulgar but what isn’t nowadays. You can’t really turn on the tv with children in the room anymore. And let’s not forget that in his day Shakespeare was vile and vulgar, writing about inappropriate subjects, but today we praise his writing like it was elegant. It was just a song, I am sure she does not want anyone to actually bow down to her. It was just figuratively speaking to represent her position in the industry. There were no rappers, that was Bey rapping and it was “screwed” (slowed down) to pay homage to her hometown Houston, TX where screw music originated and Houston brought screw to the rest of the world. It was a fun, cocky song and my goodness after all of her accolades, awards, and hard work if she can’t have a cocky moment, none of us deserve one either. I have days where I feel like I am the BEST thing walking, and I think we all have those days. We do not need to get so riled up about a song, we need to get riled up about hate crimes, and feeding the hungry, and donating money to families in need but I am more than sure most ppl in this comment thread don’t think twice about those things. They just rather be upset about a singer who really doesn’t matter in the grand scheme of things. Don’t pray for Beyonce, pray for the woman under the bridge with the 3 children who are hungry. Beyonce has enough ppl praying for her. Just my opinion.
