Beyonce Knowles Premieres Official 'Run the World (Girls)' Music Video


Beyonce goes hard in the Francis Lawrence-directed music video, leading the ladies to a 'battle of sexes' with the male squad.

Beyonce Knowles' "Run the World (Girls)" music video has made its debut during the top 3 performance night of "American Idol". Directed by Francis Lawrence, it follows the R&B diva as a chief of a female army. She leads them to a hard-hitting dance routine, showing the opposite sex what they are capable of while emphasizing her message on the song lyrics.

Sampling Major Lazer's "Pon de Floor", "Run the World" is the first single from Beyonce's new album "4" which is due later this year. It got lukewarm response on the chart, debuting at No. 33 on Billboard Hot 100 in its first week on sale and then dropping at No. 65 the following week.

Talking to Billboard recently, Beyonce admitted the risk of picking the song as her first offering. "It's definitely riskier than something a bit more...simple. I just heard the track and loved that it was so different: it felt a bit African, a bit electronic and futuristic," she said.

"It reminded me of what I love, which is mixing different cultures and eras -- things that typically don't go together -- to create a new sound. I can never be safe; I always try and go against the grain. As soon as I accomplish one thing, I just set a higher goal. That's how I've gotten to where I am."
