Let out that baited breath — Queen B has a new song.
After teasing the track two months ago in her Pepsi “Mirrors” commercial, Beyoncé has gifted the world with “Grown Woman,” a bold upbeat track widely believed to be the lead single off her highly-anticipated, as-of-yet-untitled fifth solo studio album.
In the song co-written by The-Dream and produced by Timbaland, Bey oozes self-confidence: “I’m a grown woman/ I do whatever I want/ I can be bad if I want/ I can say what I want/ I can live fast if I want/ I can go slow all night long.” Touché.
“Grown Woman” is the first full taste of Beyoncé’s new music, following a few months of the Grammy-winning singer trickling out several snippets of upcoming songs. Back in March, Blue Ivy‘s mom previewed “Bow Down” and “I Been On,” and just weeks later, shared a short cut of “Standing on the Sun” in her new commercial for clothing brand H&M.
This latest track is suspected to have “leaked,” but oh-so serendipitously — coming as speculation continues to swirl that Bey may be pregnant with her second child. Could the song release be a clever move by the Queen to change the conversation? If so, well played.
