Beyonce's new video and cover magazine

Watch the trailer of Beyonce “Run The World (Girls)”:

Just recently, Beyonce released her teaser video for “Run The World (Girls)”
From her highly anticipated 4th upcoming solo album she's thinking when the actual world premiere will happen. The music video was choreographed all by herself.

Meanwhile, the video director is Francis Lawrence and he told MTV this - “Some stuff spilled out, but she wasn’t happy about it, so I’ve been sworn to secrecy.”

“She would probably have me shot if I said anything.. It’ll be big, it’ll probably be one of the bigger Beyonce music videos ever done,” he added.

The song is the lead single from her forthcoming album, set for release this year.

Aside from that Beyonce was also Interviewed on Billboard Magazine:
The new album is called “4.” Aside from this being your fourth solo album, what significance does that number hold?
We all have special numbers in our lives, and 4 is that for me. It’s the day I was born. My mother’s birthday, and a lot of my friends’ birthdays, are on the fourth; April 4 is my wedding date.

How did the creative process begin with the new body of work?

I recorded more than 60 songs: everything I ever wanted to try, I just did it. I started off being inspired by [Afrobeat music pioneer] Fela Kuti. I actually worked with the band from “Fela!” [the hit Broadway musical based on his life] for a couple of days, just to get the feel for the soul and heart of his music; it’s so sexy, and has a great groove you get lost in. I loved his drums, all the horns, how everything was on the one. What I learned most from Fela was artistic freedom: he just felt the spirit. I also found a lot of inspiration in ’90s R&B, Earth, Wind & Fire, DeBarge, Lionel Richie, Teena Marie… I listened to a lot of Jackson 5 and New Edition, but also Adele, Florence + the Machine, and Prince. Add in my hip-hop influences, and you can hear how broad it is. I also gave myself more freedom to really belt out some songs, and bring soul singing back: I used a lot of the brassiness and grittiness in my voice that people hear in my live performances, but not necessarily on my records.
