Beyoncé has just released the first new song from the sessions leading up to her upcoming fifth solo album. Though there's no guarantee it'll arrive on the LP, "Bow Down/I Been On" is the first new music fans have heard from Bey since the release of her 2011 LP, "Four."
Produced by Hit Boy, the track is a far cry from the triumphant, glistening pop most are used to hearing from Beyoncé. Instead, it's a gritty, Houston rap-tinged track that features an empowered Bey growling, "Bow down, bitches" on multiple occasions. In another line, she's possibly referencing the shadow of Jay-Z: "I took some time to live my life, don't think I'm just his little wife."
