Beyonce Song, ‘Till the End of Time,’ Leaks Online — Listen
When Beyonce released ‘Run the World (Girls),’ the first single from her album ‘4,’ it was hard — for those already familiar with Major Lazor‘s ‘Pon de Floor’ and accompanying dirty video — to get past the catchy sample. Prior, Beyonce had been quoted going all mad scientist trying to invent a new music genre, but ‘Run the World (Girls)’ already had a familiar ring to it, perhaps making it fall short on the charts, where it entered at No. 23 and then fell to No. 76. But that’s all about to change with the leak of ‘Till the End of Time,’ a purported track off ‘4’ that has found its way to the Internet.
‘Till the End of Time’ picks up on the post-apocalyptic vibe of ‘Run the World (Girls),’ but with more originality and a two-faced delivery; a brash, marching militia-inspired beat is coupled to sweet lyrics. “C’mon take my hand/ I won’t let you go/ I will be your friend,” Beyonce sings. “I will love so deeply/ I will be the one to kiss you at night/ I will love you till the end of time.” The track channels Quincy Jones and Michael Jackson ‘Off the Wall’ production with horns kicking in midway.
Last night (May 22), Beyonce took home the Millennium Award, the highest honor given at the 2011 Billboard Music Awards. She was praised for her work by legendary artists like Stevie Wonder and Barbra Streisand, as well as First Lady Michelle Obama in a pre-recorded video, before the first televised performance of ‘Run the World (Girls).’
‘4’ drops on June 28 via Columbia Records. You can peek the album cover art here.
