Beyoncé – Girls (Who Run the World) [Updated]

Submitted by / 12 years ago / New Singles

A short 15 second preview of Beyoncé‘s new single Girls (Who Run the World) hit the Internet this week, and it was instantly clear for all to hear that she was rocking a Major Lazer sample of Pon De Floor. What we weren’t sure of was how much of the song she had decided to sample, but with today’s leak of the full track it seems that she has sampled Pon De Floor in its entirety, from start to finish.

With Britney Spears, Katy Perry, Ke$ha, Rihanna, Lady Gaga and J. Lo all coming back in the past year with absolutely storming singles, to say this is a disappointment is a massive understatement.

I’m kind of hoping this isn’t her comeback single as it’s a bit embarrassing. I bet you guys can’t wait for Glastonbury!
