R&B singer from Houston, Beyoncé, released two snippet recordings on March 17 as an anticipation builder for her fifth studio album. The album is assumed to be called Mrs. Carter but hasn’t been confirmed by Beyoncé. Beyoncé is commonly known as the former lead singer of the best-selling girl group Destiny’s Child from the 90s. She has recorded four solo albums and stared in ten films since the group’s split in 2001. In the track, Beyoncé raps in a slow, low pitched voice. The song proves to her fans (and critics) that she is worthy of the title Queen Bey of R&B. The track’s lyrics “…when you were little girls / you dreamt of being in my world…don’t forget it / Respect that, bow down…” reminds her fans that she used to be their role model and that she writes music for her fans. The track has been used in commercials previewing her upcoming The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour. The tour begins in Europe on April 15.
