The first two singles from Beyonce's upcoming third album, I Am, were just released online today. One of the two songs is "If I Were A Boy," which from the title a lot of people assumed followed the same theme as Ciara's 2007 hit "Like A Boy." And it looks like those people were right - sort of. The theme is the same: it's about a woman wondering what it would be like to be a guy. But Ciara's song was an upbeat dance tune, while Be's is more of a melancholy, mellow track. Be's other new song, "Single Ladies," will be spotlighted here tomorrow, but for now, you can stream "If I Were A Boy" by clicking on the link below.
