Beyonce “Im Just A Boy” Confirmed As First Single (Update)

I'm Just A Boy As many of you well know, Beyonce is hard at work on third solo CD, which has a tentative release date of around November 2008. Rumors spread throughout the net a few weeks ago that the new album title was Virtuoso Intellect, but now even more reliable information about the first single and the video for that first single, has spread throughout the net as well. Recently posted information concerning the casting for a new Beyonce video shows the title of the song to be ‘I’m Just A Boy” with the video shoot scheduled to start on September 11th and wrap up on the 14th. Jake Nava, who helmed Beyonce’s “Beautiful Liar” video with Shakira, has also been tapped to direct this video as well and based on the posted information below, it may have a “Ring The Alarm” type of theme to it.

UPDATE

Billboard magazine has cleared up a few things about Beyonce’s upcoming single. The song is actually titled “If I Were A Boy” and is due to hit the airwaves in October. Another track, Single Ladies, is also due to be released at the same time. So we will have two Beyonce songs instead of one leading off the new album, which according to Billboard will be released on November 18th.

  2. @Harlem Chic…

    She do look like she in a witness protection program with that wig piece…

  3. You know at first I thought that was her real hair and the longer hair she had was a wig, but now I think the longer do is hers and this is the wig. Whatever the case, this look was just for the Etta James performance.

  7. @ DIAMOND
    Why did u bring up Rihanna? You are asking for the DRAMA!
    I cant wait I love this girl!!!
    I am a BEYONCE fan but I dont like the drama!

  8. “You know at first I thought that was her real hair and the longer hair she had was a wig, but now I think the longer do is hers and this is the wig.”

    WEll i’ve seen pictures of her real hair and there is no way the straight blond is her i’m sure she has great her since her mother made sure we all registered that her daugthers and her are creole but if the blond hair was hers i think she would have bottled and sold whatever she used to grow her hair πŸ™‚

    Either way i know beyonce is going to sell a million the first week so it does not matter if the tittle of her song make sens or not πŸ™‚

    Go bey she is a goddess

  9. yes kanyade
    she will lead all of us back to the land

  10. Can’t wait to hear her new stuff, everyone’s new stuff. Christina’s got me on a music high, hope it last the rest of year. New stuff, new stuff!

  11. I am no longer a fan of Beyonce’s . The way she treats the press and any other person who just want to take a “picture” of her or with her , it’s rude and selfishness to treat people like this who built your career!! I’m so happy Rihanna and others are the “IT” girls . I could careless about any album or projects she is releasing !!!!

  12. First Diana Ross, then a Latina, ok, so now Beyonce thinks that she really is Ette James. This girl has major issues. I am sick of Beyonce and her over inflated ego.

  13. I am so excited! Can’t wait for the new era to begin! Loved what I was hearing at Fashion Rocks, so I am so ready for some new music! Love the Etta James wig too! Beyonce is a beautiful girl, so she can rock anything.

  14. oh my god, if this songs anything like beautiful nightmare shes out done herself, yet again. she is amazing at what ever she does. peace out peeps

  15. As far as the STAND UP performance, her voice was just annoying to me. It’s high pitched and loud and I think I’m tired of it.

  16. Beyonce is a good performer and I loved her first solo project. Wasn’t too crazy about the second solo project. However, I just don’t get all of the hoopla over her.

  17. She is about to shoot the video for the video this week! Can’t wait for new music from Beyonce!

  18. I’m just a boy uh? WEll she can come up with a song called “when i have my period i get cranky” and she’ll get a grammy for it that’s queen beyonce she is going to sell a milli the first day so what do i know?

  19. Screw what y’all talkin about, where do I audition for the Office Assistant?

  20. Bey looked a hot mess with that wig on…is she gonna say she was “still in character”…save it for the movie honey, it’s not cute.

  21. Yeah I think Bey did that tribute to Etta James at Fashion Rocks because she is playing her in an upcoming movie.

  22. @Jazi

    Actually, Etta James was in the audience on the front row. According to the reviews she rock the house with the rendition and received a standing ovation. There are clips on youtube, but the show will air tomorrow night.

  23. Since when do “it” girls last? Since when is it a good thing to be an “it” girl?

    Jlo was an “it” girl.
    Ashanti was an “it” girl.

    I’m sure Rihanna will disappear soon too like all the other “it” girls with no talent.

    Beyonce recently said she is beyond that “it” girl crap and I’m glad she said that because she is right she is more than that.

    Beyonce, Alicia Keys, Mary J Blige, and Mariah Carey are going to be considered the legends of this generation. Hate on Beyonce if you want, but she has something that no other female artist has. That’s having everyone talking. Even on the other post full of several women, everybody was talking about Beyonce. She is already an icon, years and years from now she will definitely be a legend if she keeps at it. Best of luck to her. People can say what they want but she gets more and more successful every day.

  24. and the only thing in common this song has with ciara’s is the word “boy”.

    beyonce came out with ‘baby boy’ first. did ciara copy her? smh

    seriously stop reaching.

  25. Didn’t someone else did a song like that. Not going to say any name! See if she can dance like her.

  26. Icon – please. She is not a pioneer or an originator. There is nothing revolutionary about her music nor is she a groundbreaking artist. Beyonce has reached her peak, but also she is full of herself and delusional in thinking that doing what she does is iconic. She is all looks and no brains. Maybe she should take her millions and invest in a decent education. Every time she opens her mouth, she needs to stick her foot in it.

  27. I am sure the album will be a success. But I hope with as much energy that you all have for this girl that you are out there making sure that all of your friends are registered to vote. The cut off date is October 3, 2008 and if you are not you can go to http://www.barakobama.com and get registered depending on the state or you can get the information. And once you are registered let’s make sure on November 4, 2008 you get to the polls and actually vote.

  28. bria: girl i made everyone i knew register πŸ™‚ and my husby and i are driving a bus november 4th and making sure everyone vote obama then head to vegas to pre-celebrate his victory lool

  29. @Dark sista you go girl. I am out in the communities getting people ready to vote. Alot of people are under the impression that if you have a felony you can’t register to vote but that is not true. You have to find out what the requirements are. But even if you have a felony just go and register what’s the worst can happen they are not checking that go register and then the most important thing is to get up on November 4m 2008 and make history.

  30. Great i am missing some beyonce, awaiting on her material to drop i hope it ROCKS!!!!

  31. Let the hate begin. Curious. If all the haters can’t stand my girl B, why do they bother to read posts about her? Why take the time to blog about her? Why not just move on to someone else? Hmm, just sayin’…..
