WATCH NOW: Beyonce – “Run The World (Girls)” (Official Video)

Filed under : Africa, Entertainment, Music

Hello lovely ones!


Beyonce just premiered her new music video tonight. The 2011 BET Awards nominee (‘Female R&B Artist‘ Of The Year) used  “American Idol,” to debut her music video for the much-anticipated “Run The World (Girls)” single.

You guys know that I am ALL about the lyrics of a song. Check out what Bey had to say to the girls that “run the world”:

My persuasion can build a nation
Endless power, the love we can devour
You’ll do anything for me…

I’m repping for the girls who taking over the world help me raise a glass for the college grads

I work my 9 to 5, better cut my check
This goes out to all the women getting it in you’re on your grind
To other men that respect what I do please accept my shine
Boy you know you love it how we’re smart enough to make these millions.
Strong enough to bear the children then get back to business

Love! Check out the fab video:


Was Bey dancing PANTSULA in there with those two Mozambican kwaito dance group guys, Tofo Tofo (mark 1:05 – 1:43)? Apparently Bey reached out to them to help out choreographers Frank Gatson and Sheryl Murakami with the moves for the music video.

Pantsula is a South African dance that became very popular in the 80’s. It was a spontaneous expression of the lives of young men and women in the townships of South Africa that needed a way out of their misery. The dance was not only used for them to express themselves, but was also a way of life. It expressed their lives as a reflection of the violence of the township culture. The dance set them free from parental dominance and it gave them freedom without prejudice. It gained international recognition and became the pop music of the decade.

Pantsula dance is described as a flat footed African tap-and-glide style of dance. The Zulu word “pantsula” means to “waddle like a duck” or alternatively to “walk with protruded buttocks“, which is a characteristic of the dance.

Your Thoughts?!?!
