Either you're willfully ignorant or you live under a rock if you don't get the impact.

Would rather have no impact whatsoever than have this song as a part of my discography. Such an ugly song.

I believe gwen follows toni's strategy, she keeps rejecting all the ugly songs, but somehow the amazing ones she chooses have no impact whatsoever. :(

Is it what you call an impact ? I would have said H. Clinton may have liked this song. And it has nothing to do with impact.
Girl you need to stop trying it.

I don't get the hate for this song, it's amazing, especially in a club. 8-)

I think that's the issue. Most people hear it on the radio or whatever. I haven't heard it in a club but I'm sure it sounds amazing. I hear it on my beats headphones and it pumps 8-)
I pretend I'm in a club :lol:

Still hate it. Always will. But I did enjoy it when she performed it on the Formation Tour.

For some reason, this is one of the songs she really goes AWF on.

I swear this is one of her biggest hits here in Portugal.

They just copied her Billboard performance for one of the shows on TVI tonight, it was super lame. lol

Still one hell of a bop five years after its release 8-) . Have never got why it got so much hate. It's one of her best singles IMO.

It does feel like one of her biggest singles in the world actually. It's just...its chart performance doesn't match. :lol: Same with "Listen".

Had streaming been available back when it was released, it could've been top 10 easily.

Even "Halo" didn't chart THAT high back then.

Right! Even "Irreplaceable" peak positions in some European countries are kinda tragic. :lol:

That's funny, let me explain.

Two days ago, I went to a university dinner where the girls (mainly freshman) decided to prepare a routine and get all sexy for the guys, at the dinner's afterparty.
And they had the thing sorted like a dance battle, where 2 groups would dance against each other.

The first group, opened with a routine to Flawless.. Which was pretty surprising to me, since I didn't know the song was that popular among 18yo girls. In the end, all the girls gathered and danced hardcore to Run The World, and even a few guys in the audience were singing along.

It was pretty fun, and surprising to know these songs appear to be pretty popular amongst the younger crowd.

This really will turn in one of her personal classics, I was made fun of on the last page :lol: , but so many people know this song and this really will be one of those girl power staple hits for years to come tbh. She has so many songs that people know that never were proper singles or never were those proper chart hits

Prophetic, these lyrics are my daily prayer.

It's hot up in here
DJ don't be scared to run this, run this back
I'm repping for the girls who taking over the world
Help me raise a glass for the college grads

41' Rollie to let you know what time it is, check
You can't hold me
I work my 9 to 5 and I cut my check
This goes out to all the women getting it in
Get on your grind
To the other men that respect what I do
Please accept my shine

Boy I know you love it
How we're smart enough to make these millions
Strong enough to bear the children
Then get back to business
See, you better not play me
Don't come here, baby
Hope you still like me
F U Pay Me

My persuasion can build a nation
Endless power, with our love we can devour
You'll do anything for me

Who run the world? Girls!

the reason why this song kinda tanked at first release was cause Major Lazor's Pon De Floor was released a year before this and the beat was LITERALLY The same, not even a change.

Hence bumping to Pon De Floor one year before this, just made it seem strange that B would chose a beat that's been out for a year as the lead single

^ Diplo: Beyonce’s ‘Run the World’ Started As A Joke

Diplo wants to set something straight about the newly crowned World’s Most Beautiful Woman and one of her most anthemic girl-power tracks. (No, don’t worry, “Single Ladies” is safe). Apparently “Run the World (Girls)” started out as one big ha-ha between the song’s co-producer and everyone’s new favorite Tumblrer.

“I still think a lot of people don’t even realize where that song came from,” Diplo said in an interview with his sometime employer the BBC. “That song never really had a push. It was a joke song we did. Kind of like a funny joke kind of song.”

Emphasis on kind of. Given the fact that a playful snippet of the track leaked in April of last year, before the song was officially announced, and considering how wonderfully left-field that Major Lazer “Pon de Floor” sample sounded on a Beyoncé single at first, Diplo’s claims make some sense. The video, nevertheless, was straight-up fierce (and so was her Billboard Music Awards performance of the song).
