Beyonce Schools Bitches, Sorta

Well, that was unexpected: Beyoncé shared a bizarre track via Soundcloud and Instagram that abuses vocal modulation and is really maybe two tracks and might be from a new album? Either way, it's the first song we've heard from her since she gave birth to Blue Ivy, so it caught our attention. The first minute of this mysterious track is "Bow Down," a song in which Beyoncé sassily reminds us that she's not "just his little wife," and most importantly, to "bow down, bitches." The first thing I thought of was Jay-Z's recent verse in "Suit & Tie," which he spent talking about how he dresses his wife in designer clothing and gets along swell with her parents. Maybe things got a bit too domestic for the Queen, but we're wondering whether anyone actually doubts that Beyoncé is pop royalty. Who exactly is she sassing?

The next two minutes are "I've Been On," which has (we have to assume) Beyoncé rapping in awkward baritone, "I heard your boo was talking lip / I told my crew to smack that trick / Guess what they did? Smack that trick." To tell the truth, we were more intimidated by her thighs in the "Run The World" video than this campy verse. Trippy production by Hit-Boy and Timbaland (respectively) gives the song a boost, but we're left feeling mostly bewildered.



Part of "I've Been On" was recently featured on an ad for Beyoncé's UK tour, which is worth checking out just for the costumes:



Remember her little sister, Solange? Well, she's making dance-happy electronica with a funky back-up band, and gave us a taste at our recent SXSW showcase. Watch her perform "Losing You" below:
