Agree with you!

The song: When she added the Pon De Floor sample beat it became too upbeat, overwhelming not to mention her screaming which destroyed the song.

The Video: Love the choreography and costumes, but it was poorly edited and the theme was off. I felt that it was too-Gaga. I was expecting her (Gaga) to jump out somewhere.

Overall, I felt that the new single debut was a miss.

I was also looking through the previous thread, Beyonce's style is horrid. I miss her old days.

I`ve read somewhere that Run The World (Girls) wasn`t originally meant to be the Album`s lead single. It got leaked so they`re forced to rush it as a single. And Beyonce being dedicated to it even though it`s a flop makes her more admirable.

I, at first, hated the song and I`m a BIG Beyonce fan. But after some dedicated listening, it started to grow on me and I started to know the real meaning. Amazing song/

The video is nothing but 100% Beyonce for me - choreography, attitude. It`s not GaGa. Is there a rule saying that only GaGa can wear Couture and Fashionable clothes on her video? She can`t wear Mugler now like she used to (I Am... Sasha Fierce era) because GaGa runs and rules the brand. I love the dance, and yes it looks like Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It) but she`s the one who brought that trend back so she can work it anytime and does it with justice.

I just don`t get the comparison. It`s no specific artists` era today. It`s the girls` era.

I may sound biased but these are just my honest opinions

I really can't @ people saying the video is like gaga! She didn't invent high fashion! Gosh.

^and no, Run The World is meant to be the first single but was forced to be released early because of the leak. It was meant to be release last week.

i really wish i could love he song. it's okay, i don't hate it. but still not that great IMO.
i am biased about the video aswell.
i do love the choreography cause it's so different. i am curious which direction she'll go now. i respect her for taking risks a lot though

i thought the visuals of the video would boost the song but ... not really.
I like the dancing and she looks pretty but its not one of her videos you want to watch repeatedly.

I felt that she did her thing
She knows how to get the attention she wants for her album.
**shrugs**

love the video! my fav shot is where shes wearing the gold boot like shoes and the gold dress. What makes her the top singer in the world is because she dares to be different which sometimes may not go down well with the general public. Remember Dejavu, it had a similar reaction but she still stuck with it and even performs it when touring
