Beyoncé reveals new single Grown Woman – but no baby
The pregnant pause is over: Beyonce has a new song out.
The pop superstar today dropped “Grown Woman,” a feisty tribal beat-driven track co-written by The-Dream and produced by Timbaland. It’s full of an energy that’ll inevitably draw comparisons with “Single Ladies.”
Beyonce’s full of confidence as she sings: “I’m a grown woman, I do whatever I want.” Who would argue. She’s at the pinnacle of pop music, the matriarch of a music dynasty.
The buzz surrounding whether she is or isn’t carrying a sibling for Blue Ivy will almost certainly segue into more hype for this new number.
A short cut of the track had accompanied Beyonce’s Pepsi “Mirrors” ad, and it’s been given an airing on stage in recent weeks. Today, however, is the first full taste of the recording.

For the record, Beyonce’s husband Jay-Z has said there isn’t another Carter baby. Apart from this new record, that is.
Mr Carter – Beyonce’s husband Jay-Z – has denied claims that his wife is pregnant despite growing rumours, fuelled in part by the singer’s dancers pushing two prams out onstage during her live show in Zurich, Switzerland over the weekend. Jay-Z apparently told Ebro Darden, of Stateside radio station Hot 97, that Beyonce was not expecting after he sent him a congratulatory email. “Jay-Z emailed Ebro over the weekend and told him that the pregnancy rumour is false,” they said. “I hit him to say congratulations… It’s not true, the news is worse than blogs,” said Darden.
