After a preview of the Beyoncé new Pepsi commercial — and for a fortunate few, a debut during the Paris leg of Bey’s The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour – the full-length of Grown Woman is now available for our streaming pleasure. Produced by hit producer Timbaland and co-written by The-Dream, the tribal-esque single merges contemporary pop motifs with world music sensibility. Funky, energetic with odes of feminist vibrations, the single will no doubt fill dance floors in the months to come. No news as to where the track will end up but it’ll most likely appear on her forthcoming untitled fifth solo LP. Stay tuned.
