Last night on American Idol Beyoncé debuted her much anticipated music video for her single Run the World (Girls). The track is off her latest album titled 4.
The pop star was on American Idol to serve as a mentor for the last three remaining contestants.
The clip, which runs 4:51 minutes includes impressive dance routines, exotic animals and a number of wardrobe changes for the 29-year-old singer.
I also found a lot of inspiration in '90s R7B; Earth, Wind & Fire; DeBarge; Lionel Richie; Teena Marie, Beyoncé recently told Billboard. I listened to a lot of Jackson 5 and New Edition, but also Adele, Florence + the Machine and Prince. Add in my hip-hop influences, and you can hear how broad it is. I also gave myself more freedom to really belt out some songs, and bring soul singing back.
