If there's one theme that has always run through Beyonce Knowles' career, it's female empowerment. From songs like "Independent Women" and "Survivor" from her Destiny's Child days to solo material like "Ring The Alarm" and "Single Ladies," Bey has shown that's she's all about girl power. So it should come as no surprise that the first official single from her upcoming, but as yet untitled fourth studio album, "Run The World (Girls)," is a female empowerment anthem. What is a mild surprise though, is that the song's co-written by producer-singer Terius Nash, better known to most music fans as The-Dream. Apparently, Dream is either very in touch with his feminine side, or else knows how to tap into it quickly. Anyway, "Run The World," is undeniably a memorable addition to Beyonce's catalog of songs. But whether it's a great track or not is very much debatable. If you haven't heard it yet, you can stream "Run the World" via Ms. Knowles' official SoundCloud page. A link's included below.
