Beyonce is opening up in more detail, for the first time, about her fifth studio album release. During a Q&A, giving fans a break down of the album and songs recently, she explained her reason for releasing her now controversial single, “Bow Down”, earlier in the year, and the motivation behind it.
“The reason I put out Bow Down is because I woke up, I went into the studio, I had a chant in my head. It was aggressive. It was angry. It wasn’t the Beyoncé that wakes up every morning. It was the Beyoncé that was angry. It was the Beyoncé that felt the need to defend herself. And if the song never comes out, okay! I said it. And I listened to it after I finished, and I said ‘This is hot! I’ma put it out.’ I’m not gon’ sell it. I’ma just put it out. People like it, great. If they don’t, they don’t. And I won’t do it every day because that’s not who I am but I feel strong. And anyone that says ‘Oh that is disrespectful,’ just imagine the person that hates you. Imagine the person that doesn’t believe in you, and look in the mirror and say ‘bow down, BITCH,’ and I guarantee you’ll feel gangsta. So listen to that song from that point of view again if you didn’t like it before!”
