Sorry Stans: You’re Not Getting That ‘Run The World’ Video Anytime Soon

- By Bossip Staff

Beyonce on the set of "Run The World"

After two teasers and all types of “leaked” photos, Beyonce’s over-hyped highly-anticipated “Run The World” video has been delayed without being assigned a new release date.

Following a screening of the video in New York on Wednesday, Team Bey-Must-Always-Be-Perfect decided that the clip just “wasn’t ready” to come out today like it was supposed to. In other words, the video was not spectacular enough to make us ignore how wack the song is.

The Francis Lawrence-directed music video was originally set to make its way out Friday, May 13. However, VEVO later announced the delay, “OK, bad news: ‘Run The World (Girls)’ won’t be out on Friday like we thought. No new date yet. Beyonce is perfecting it. We’re disappointed too but wanted to let you know as soon as we knew. We’ll out it up as soon as we do get it!”

This delay comes hot on heels of “Run the World (Girls)” disappointing chart performance. After debuting at No. 33 on Billboard Hot 100 earlier last month, the single continues to flop on the U.S. single chart. It’s currently sitting at No. 65 on weekly rundown and occupies No. 163 on iTunes chart.

Talking to Billboard recently, Beyonce admitted the risk of picking the song as her first offering. “It’s definitely riskier than something a bit more…simple. I just heard the track and loved that it was so different: it felt a bit African, a bit electronic and futuristic,” she said.

“It reminded me of what I love, which is mixing different cultures and eras — things that typically don’t go together — to create a new sound. I can never be safe; I always try and go against the grain. As soon as I accomplish one thing, I just set a higher goal. That’s how I’ve gotten to where I am.”

Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like going against the grain is working out so well for Bey this time around.

We hear that following the listening session for “4,” which was announced as the album’s official name, Bey and her team decided to take the whole thing back to the drawing board. Luckily, since Beyonce reportedly recorded over 60 songs while getting this project ready, it will probably just be a matter of going through the material again and putting together a better selection.

The team is said to be aiming for a final product with less “Run The World”-like fair and more songs that showcase her vocals.

But that’s not the only change of direction Bey is reportedly considering.

According to a tipster, Beyonce is starting to think that maybe Hubby Hov and his RocNation underlings may not be the right people to handle her music career.

RocNation declined to comment on the situation entirely.

Uh-oh! Could this be the beginning of trouble for Hip-Hop’s ‘royal couple’?

    • gina

      YES, after all the BS and blocking that daddy matt and this chick did to her, Kelly FINALLY has her day. beyonce’s pretentiousness and ego finally caught up to her. it’s called karma. that wack shyt was destined to fail.

  • bre

    You cant be on top forever… But when she was on top nobody could touch her. Life goes on time for you to be poppin out sum babyies anyway.

  • AMBER

    who cares.
    most ppl are over the song anyway.

  • OH MY

    Yup the song was horrible and a remake of pon de floor which is already really famous… back to the drawing board B…. adn please do not mix business with pleasure

  • la di da

    “Leaking” all the sound clips and photos is a mistake. It garners attention true but if you’re product’s not complete you risk losing points in the numbers game. I wouldn’t sleep on her though, i’m sure once she irons out all the kinks on this Frankenstein, it’ll be a successful record.

  • Matix B

    Everyone FLOPs- itโ€™s just Ms Carter’s turn now, the change of the guards is essential to refresh her dry dusty image. Hopefully she will regroup and come back with better product.

  • 50's BACK

  • stop it

    I wish people wouldn’t go so hard on bey what has she done to people to make people hate her so.Either way she will come back better and get a better song im glad she knows that she’s not above a flop but it still sounds as bad as everything else out right now.Still think she’s the most talented female artist in the world

  • honey

    It is KELLY ROWLANDS TIME TO SHINE. I love some Bey but she hurt my heart with this song. I was so hyped when I heard the album was coming then she released this garbage can song run the world. I agree she should just pop babies and give it a rest. I also love love love kelly rowlands motivation. Part of me was wishing this song belonged to beyonce but kelly works hard and deserves to shine. Bey I am sooooo mad with this mess you pulled..maybe I will stan for Kelly Rowland now because she came out swinging with hers. Bye bey *tears*

  • MZSCORPIO

    GOOD…HOLD THE SINGLE OR ALBUM BACK FOR A FEW MORE YEARS SOOOO SICK OF BEYONCE RIGHT NOW…

  • Bob

    Beyonce is not on Roc Nation stop spreading lies.

  • Palest Latina

    Yeah, that shyt was not good. Now Lady Gaga’s new song ‘Edge of Glory’ is the shyt(in a good way)!!

  • T

    Lmao who is kelly rowland??? Didnt she have like 5 flop singles for this unreleased album? And the only reason motivation is doin ok is cause of lil wayne. Face it, kelly will NEVER be on bey status. And last time i checked, bey is getting honored by bb as the artist of the millineum. When ur faves gonna do it? U think 1 single will hurt bey career? Keep dreamin. This girl still makin history. Tell ur faves 2 get 6 grammies in 1 nite, then u can talk shyt about bey.

    • WithAllHonesty

      I hear you, Beyonce is winning the war, but she got her @$$ kicked in this battle.

  • currvalicious

    Gaga is about to dethrone that azz! She needs to take a break, but she’s to paranoid, b/c if she does she may not be as relevant when she returns. Well everyone in the music biz has a shelf life so it is what it is.

    • Cali

      Really? Have you heard Jeewwww dahhhh? Worst song EVER and BTW was a horrible Madonna rip off. Gaga fell all the way off. If she would have kept the same formula that made her last albums great, SURELY would have taken over, but not with her new $hit music!!

  • Loli

    LOL!!! guess it was going to …… not a good song at all !!!

  • RAW

    Pride comes before the fall! She doesn’t have that much talent anyway… so now after all the gloss which everyone is used to now, whats next??? Not this terrible song!!

  • Star

    What does this mean really..she re-doing the album? She is washed up….wack….it dnt matter at this point….she needs 2 rest and be somebody’s wife!

  • http://bossip shoney

    Beyonce is perfecting it ! Gosh these people lie so much. If they didn’t lie and scheme so much they probably wouldn’t be in the boat they are in. She is probably taking out all the illuminati symbolism, because she know she will be thrashed, hopefully removing every thing she copied from gaga, changing some of the fugly wardrobe that even Jay look better than..anyway

    I wouldn’t change a damn thing if I was beyonce. She know her fans will buy it. I would look at them like idc if I breathed on a cd @Ilovebeyonce @Islayfor Beyonce,@beyonceismysavior all the stans etc…wish they would act like they aren’t going to cop it ( rolls eyes) stans better get on their job for the queen. Don’t change a thing, they all dumb anyway. How dare them !! lol so hard !!

  • Sasha Flop

    LMAO IT’S A WRAP stans!! y’all refuse to believe she FLOPPED, now it’s official. Rihanna is not budging from her ‘Hottest Chick In The Game’ throne LMAO

  • LOL

    LOL damn, she flopped worse than Christina Aguilera and Mariah Carey combined LOL.

  • QueenGaga

    LOL, beyonce knows damn well she can’t mess with The Gaga. she didn’t stand a chance in hell against Gaga. no wonder she flopped LOL.

  • #justsayin

    now where’s all the stans that kept saying ‘Bey will NEVER flop’, and my favorite one, ‘every artist has an expiration date-except beyonce’.

    #justsayin

  • Sasha FLOPPED!

    so what’s next? an award for “Artist Of The Universe”? LMAO…

  • Pink Lace

    I think it’s time for Bey to switch her style up. I’m 30 and don’t want to hear crap about girls ruling the world. She should come out w/a few slow jams on some grown woman shyt… I can’t get w/none of these chicks that are out. I mostly play back in (my parents) day jamz and Aaliyah..
