Hitting fans with that “H-Town” vicious,” Beyoncé dropped a bomb on her Tumblr page in the form of surprise single, “Bow Down/I Been On.”
She must have been holding this in since the controversy surrounding her lip-syncing at inauguration, because Queen Bey is putting all detractors on notice and taking no prisoners. Some of the lyrics include:
“I know when you were little girls, you dreamed of being in my world,” Bey says with smooth condescension (Who knew that was a thing?) before driving the dagger in: “Don’t forget it, don’t forget it, respect that. Bow down, b*tches.”
Yes, she did that and the Beyhive goes wild. But that’s not all:
“I took some time to live my life, but don’t think I’m just his little wife,” Beyoncé growls. “Don’t get it twisted, get it twisted, this my s*it, bow down b*tches.”
Then, paying homage to the late, legendary DJ Screw and Pimp C — that“Texas trill”– the diva screws her voice (way to put H-Town on the map, Bey) and reminisces about classic UGK music and telling her crew to “smack that trick.” Throughout the song, Beyoncé makes it clear that she’s always been “on” and asks” “Who gon take me off?”
Welp…it’s a legitimate question.
We’re not sure if President Barack Obama and the First Lady Michelle Obama will allow daughters Sasha and Malia listen to this song from their “role model,” but it definitely will be a club banger.
“Bow Down” was produced by Hit-Boy, the same super-producer behind Jay-Z and Kanye West’s “N*ggas in Paris.”
