Listen: 'Bow Down/I Been On' by Beyoncé

BIC's mum has got it going on.

Beyoncé has taken to her Tumblr to share a new song, 'Bow Down/I Been On'. You could be fooled by the intro into thinking that you're listening to infant rapper Willow Smith, but then Beyoncé breaks into her inimitable vocals and you're all like, "Damn, woman." Produced by Hit Boy (who did 'Niggas In Paris'), the song also features a fair dose of syrup and a bit of opera, and definitely indicates a new direction for Beyoncé. She steps up to the challenge of making sure her music will appeal to the Tumblr generation, but at the same time it remains her own. 

"I took some time to live my life, but don't think I'm just his little wife," Beyonce assures us in the lyrics before telling all the other bitches to bow down. 

Beyoncé posted the single's artwork on her Instagram (above). Honey Boo Boo might have something to say about this.
