In this week’s issue of Billboard, Beyonce gives her fans a personal look at 4, her forthcoming fourth studio album scheduled for release on June 24th.
“Having time to grow as a human being really inspired me and gave me a lot of things to pull from for this new album…I feel like I know who I am and don’t feel like I have to put myself in a box. No one can define me. I can just have fun, and have the artistic freedom to do whatever I want,” [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Beyonce[/lastfm] told Billboard.
Her debut single from that album, “Run the World (Girls),” debuted on April 21st of this year and became the female empowerment song of the spring.
