Great news for Idol fans--Beyonce will premiere the music video for "Run the World (Girls)," the first single from her forthcoming album "4," on American Idol.
B will debut the video on Idol during "American Idol's" Top 3 performance episode on Wednesday, May 18th.
"It's definitely riskier than something a bit more…simple," Beyoncé told Billboard.com of her new single.
"I just heard the track and loved that it was so different: it felt a bit African, a bit electronic and futuristic. 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."
Sony just released a teaser for the video, check it out below...
