A snippet from her "If I Were a Boy" music video, which is filmed in Harlem on September 11, shows Beyonce Knowles donning a black cop uniform. Toting handcuffs, the curvy R&B star makes an arresting appearance on West 119th Street near Lenox Avenue.
Produced by Toby Gad, "If I Were a Boy" is the first single from her upcoming studio album, which is tentatively called "Virtuoso Intellect" or "B'Ware". Alongside a second single "Single Ladies", "If I Were a Boy" is set to be released on October 7. Furthermore, all co-written and co-produced by Beyonce herself, the two tunes and all new materials in the album are described as "her most personal, reflective and revelatory collections to date."
Previously, Beyonce and pop star Justin Timberlake have agreed to follow-up their duet in Fashion Rock concert by teaming up in a new song. "I'll be in the studio this week with Beyonce. Who knows what will come out of that," Justin says in a statement. As a follow-up for her 2006 album "B'Day", her third studio effort is reportedly slated for purchase on November 18 under the courtesy of Columbia Records.
