Complex says: The queen insists that she's creating "her own genre" of music on her fourth studio album, 4. Her ambitions to mix a wide range of sounds shine through on left-field lead single "Run The World (Girls)." We're still waiting for the pop smash to debut, but there's no way Bey is releasing an LP that won't be stacked with hits.
