Beyonce Delays ‘Run the World (Girls)’ Video Debut

Columbia

Those waiting to see Beyonce‘s music video for ‘Run the World (Girls),’ the lead single of her fourth studio album, aptly-titled ’4′, are going to have to wait longer.

The video was scheduled to debut today (May 13), but was pulled at the last minute because “Beyoncé is perfecting it,” Aceshowbiz.com reports (via MTV). “We’re disappointed too but wanted to let you know as soon as we knew. We’ll [put] it up as soon as we do get it!”

No new release date has been revealed, but anticipation is high thanks to several teasers the Queen B has released for the Francis Lawrence-directed clip. The first clocked in at 20 seconds, while the follow-up is a few minutes longer and gives a better glimpse of the revolutionary-style stand off between Beyonce and an army of men. JustJared.com got the scoop on the video and reveals Beyonce rides in on a horse, gives the middle finger, rolls around in the sand and has some dance sequences with Mozambican kwaito dance group Tofo Tofo, who she discovered on YouTube and flew in for the shoot.

“I wanted to do something refreshing and different,” Beyonce told the gossip site of the music on ’4.’ “So I mixed genres and drew inspiration from touring, traveling, watching rock bands, and attending festivals … I was like a mad scientist, putting lots of different songs together.”

One song off ’4,’ tentatively titled “Till The End of Time,’ was influenced by Fela Kuti, while another samples Boyz II Men‘s ‘Uhh Ahh.’ Other songs on the album were written by Babyface and Jeff Bhasker (Bhasker is credited with writing several songs for Kanye West.)

’4′ does not have a finite release date, but is expected to drop this summer. After debuting at No. 33 on the Billboard Hot 100, ‘Run the World (Girls)’ currently sits at No. 65 on the chart.
