    Sandra,

    I thought the title was If I were a boy....

  • licia

    i thought this was gonna be a fast song.the title makes it seem like it was gonna be fast. am i the only one who thought this? IMo this is not beyawnce's best work. i don't hate it, but i'm not all ecstatic about it.

  • LADYTEA

    LOL.. are you being funny Sandra.. it's boy, not man.

  • LADYTEA

    @licia.. I thought it would be up tempo as well, I like Bey, but I don't like this song..

  • toosexy

    This song is for carrie underwood or kelly clarkson, I really am not feeling this song right now. I don't know maygbe it would have to grow on me, as of right now i will just say i'm undecided.

  • Krysi J

    Umm....I vote No.

    It's deep and civilized.

    I can feel it cause sometimes I feel if I were a man I would treat women better than men do.

    Bey said that she was doing what she wanted to do this time and I can definitely respect it. It's not the usual dumbed down stuff, it's real music, like real life.

  • toosexy

    I would have to say that ciara's song is the winner.

  • Mzsuave

    "Hatedddd it!!!" - In Living Color

    Is this one of the many styles that she is breaking into on her upcoming record? If so, I won't be downloading it.

  • Amulet

    In the real world, we crucify Jesus and let the wicked free. So exalt the playboy bunny and nail Bey cause her song is not smutty.

  • CaramelDrop

    omg! Beyonce is really letting me down. I dont like this song or the other song she put out. I understand what she's trying to do but she needs better producers imo.

    I was really looking forward to buying her cd but if she keeps doing this sh!t - she's outta there

  • CaramelDrop

    lol

    Good Morning Amulet

  • Amulet

    Hey CaramelDrop :)

    Ciara > Beyonce' version

  • Sharonda

    Let me clear that up, theme wise and lyrical wise.

  • PAGESINADIARY

    trying to copy cat off ciara

  • PAGESINADIARY

    mizzdallas; WHY ARE YOU CUTTING UP THIS MORNING?

  • whyohwhy

    I like the song, nice beat, beautiful words with a message..I'm glad she started out this way. And for sure we know her singing this song live will be just as beautiful.

    New CD, new direction, good work Beyonce. Everyone wants upbeat and booty shaking (probably on the CD) but I'm glad she did not start off with it.

    I like it!!!

  • toosexy

    THIS IS HER ICONIC SONG!LOL

  • http://myspace.com/tamarlese Peachizz

    I don't like it. Sorry I will continue to listen o your first album beyonce until you get this right..

  • bubblez

    People on here are so pathetic especially toougly stan ass who claims not to like Beyonce but comments on her on different blogs.

    Please Ciara is nowhere near Beyonce level and this song is waaay better than Ciara's nonsinging mess. Ciara is a no talent who opened up for Rihanna who is another no talent.

    Please Ciara couldn't even shine Bey's shoes and her new video is a Beyonce BET 2007 Awards ripoff and a Britney/Madonna elevator rip off.

    And that BCJean track was a demo for Beyonce so she didn't jack nobody. DJ's are loving this song and they keep playing it every 5 minutes.

    I remember when everybody hated Alicia's song No One and it became a hit.

    Once again, you dont pay attention to no life having hating women on the interent a la standra and her groupies.

  • Coo Coo Bananas

    I like the BC Jean version better.

  • whyohwhy

    If everybody liked everything a person does than something is wrong. I still like the song.

  • msmika31

    I don't see how this fits in with the video screen shots we saw a few weeks back. I like the song, I'm not sure about it being a lead off single, though.

  • candycane

    Didnt like it.

  • http://myspace.com/thegameoncw Bird

    Is this a country song? What category are they putting it in? It's definately not R&B or even Pop. Anyway, I like the topic. I often think what I would be like if I were a male. But the song doesn't doesn't fit my fantasy. Anyway, I'm cool with country and western so the song is kinda ok for me.

  • Coo Coo Bananas

    With this song, I think she's trying to recreate Irreplacable since it was the biggest hit of her career. I wish I can find that link where she said she wrote every song on this new record of hers.

    Luckily for me, I won't be bombarded with the song via payola recieving radio stations.

  • Coo Coo Bananas

    @ Bird, it's a Top 40 song. Not really aimed to stations that "blaze hip hop & r&b."

  • toosexy

    @coo coo & bird

    what's up

    the urban song which is called single ladies, is no better, and if this is reflective of her, why is she singing a single ladies song?

  • iyonah

    I can't wait for the new album, I appreciater the lyrics ... content based is a good direction

  • toosexy

    @bubblez

    dang i'm sorry i like the song and this one is better than ciara.LOL

    your right i don't have a life that's the only reason i wasn't feeling the song, so i take it back so that i can have a life.

  • http://myspace.com/jazmyneh Jazmyne

    *YAWNS*
    Ciara like a boy is better then this.

  • iyonah

    appreciate**

    I can't stop listening to it ... I love her sound ...
    Listening to this, beautiful nightmare, Kick em out, should have, etc ... I can see the direction ...

    Nov 18th! YEAH BEY!!!!

  • Amulet

    Didn't Beyonce use to be single too? So I think that means that she can relate to single women too, right? I don't know, I'm just wondering.

  • Detroit48205

    Hey Sandra:

    Revoke Bubblez SR card... she just hated on everybody in the SR La Familia...

    SNATCH HER SR CARD....

  • toosexy

    @amulet

    well i guess your addressing me, yes, she has been single , what about 6-10 years ago, I was just saying looks like if you were just newly married, and on the high from that, single would be far off of your mind, if this was a reflection of your life right now , right? she said this was about her now, not then, right? so i was just wondering also.

  • Amulet

    @toosexy

    Single women and married women all feel cheated and get cheated on. I feel like she is opening her heart up at this moment. Everybody knows J cheats on her, but you never heard her cheating on him.

    She sounds like her new album is about singing what's in her heart as a woman and a person, and not what the industry or fans may only just like. That's what I got from her statement of her new album. Of course, people are not going to like it because it's not what they are use to hearing from her. I think she knows that. She is rich now, and married of course so I don't think she really gives a damn about most of her supposedly loyal fans turning on her for a moment while she does what she really wants to do.

  • MUNCHOSGIRL

    LOOKIE HERE YA'LL SANDRA LET ME BACK IN! HI SANDRA! *WAVING LIKE FORREST GUMP*

  • toosexy

    @amulet

    have you heard the single ladies song?

    and although i understand your statement, the fact still remains that she's NOT SINGLE. you can still sing a song with all the emotions and express how you feel, without going the single ladies route if your not single, i feel even though pain is pain, the two are diff. now when trina made her single again, it was a hit, and plus she was single and everybody knew about her and wayne, i don't think beyonce's song will be a bigger hit than trina's single song.

    also beyonce been singing about how jay treats her, i know it, and you know it. this is nothing new, but beyonce has always denied it, right?

    ring the alarm was not about jay , and the song (i forget the name) where she said was about etta in dreamgirls

    that's why i find it hard to believe she will admit and be consistent and say ok this is a reflection of me. i bet if you were to ask her a question about it it would be,, oh it's not about me, or the obvious person is not the person. so i don't know, but if you were in love and on a high (newlywed high) and your relationship has never went thru anything why would you be doing a single song. I don't know i think too deep sometimes. but anyway i don't like either, but i still wish her luck.

  • toosexy

    OK GUYS HERE IS THE LATEST SCOOP

    BEYONCE'S IF A WERE A BOY IS A EITHER RIP OFF OR WAS SOLD TO BEY

    BC JEAN'S MYSPACE HAS THE SONG, AND IT IS BEING SAID THAT THAT'S WHERE THE SONG CAME FROM.

    AUNTIE SANDRA GET ON YOUR JOB. LET US KNOW THE DEAL

  • Amulet

    @toosexy,
    I don't think she just wants to come all out and sing "I'm married to a man that cheats on me". Just read between the lines.

    I'm not her fan either, and I'm not hating but I don't think she should have married Jay Z. A lot of us women just be dumb about picking a partner in life. She seems like she is just with him cause she is use to him, which is weak. He is definitely a lucky man. She just married a high price kneegrow with money. Anyways, I'm digressing lol. I'm really good with emotions, I just feel and understand people in a paranormal kind of way.

  • MUNCHOSGIRL

    THE SONG WAS NOT WRITEN BY BCJEAN, SHE IS JUST SINGING IT. BEYONCE'S VERSION WAS CO-WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY HER AND TOBY CAD.

  • toosexy

    @amulet
    ok, really I have always thought that jay just was infactuated with having the it girl and her more like a trophy wife from pics i have seen this is only my observation. but really how do you know he cheats like that. I have never heard of anything besides rhianna and maybe a thing a two about him taking a young lady out to dinner. other than that fill me girl!

    @munchosgirl

    ok,then, i wonder how could bc jean be singing it before beyonce, I mean if the song was written for beyonce why would she have it before then. I don't know but it makes yo say hmmmmmm. i just read it on another blogsite.

  • Amulet

    @toosexy, okay you win, men don't cheat at all.

  • toosexy

    @ amulet

    no really, I don't want to win, I want to know. I also thinks he cheats but he's been really good at keeping it on the low, I just thought maybe you knew some gossip about it, really believe me i am not fan of jay and bee like that.

    i just wanted to know, i know their be some insiders on here.

  • MUNCHOSGIRL

    TOOSEXY, BC JEAN DID THE DEMO FOR THE SONG.
