Rihanna who? Beyoncé is ready to reclaim her throne as pop queen — do YOU think she’ll do it?

Beyoncé is furiously at work on her fourth album, and if these 18 leaked seconds of her next single are any indication, it’s going to be epic! The 29-year-old superstar has teamed up with up and coming DJ and producer Diplo to create a new pop-electro sound we love.

The track, which is reportedly going to be titled “Girl” or “Girls (Who Run the World),” samples Major Lazer‘s hit song, “Pon de Floor.” (Not so coincidentally, Diplo is actually one half of Major Lazer…)

Earlier this week, photos leaked of Beyoncé working on the music video in the Mojave Dessert in California, for which she reportedly hired 200 African dancers. Clearly, B’s old motto — “Go big or go home” — is in full force here.

Are YOU excited to hear her new music? How do you feel about her collaboration with Diplo? Sound off below!

I’ve heard the full track thanks to a few .. ahem .. connections to the industry and can i just say this clip DOES NOT do the full track justice! The song has so many parts to it, its very inovative, different n like nothin else around today (or been around ever). Queen B about to sting.

@Sarah thanks for the info.I’ve been reading negative comments about the snippet and like I said before to everyone just wait until the full track comes out.Then make an opinion.I can’t wait!

Thank you SO much. I was kind of freaking out because I really don’t like that clip & I’ve been looking forward to this single/album for forever so when I heard it I was really disappointed, but you’ve given me hope :)
