Fans are excited to see what [artist id="1236911"]Beyoncé[/artist] has in store for her [article id="1663254"]"Run the World (Girls)" video[/article], but it seems they're going to have to wait a little bit longer. An announcement confirms that the premiere has been delayed, with no information on when B plans on dropping the video.
"OK, bad news: 'Run the World (Girls)' won't be out on Friday like we thought. No new date yet. Beyoncé is perfecting it," a statement from Vevo.com reads,
target="_blank">Aceshowbiz.comreports. "We're disappointed too but wanted to let you know as soon as we knew. We'll [put] it up as soon as we do get it!"
A rep for the site had not responded to MTV News' request for comment by press time, and a search on the site for the video comes up empty.
The Francis Lawrence-directed video remains in limbo, but teasers leading up to its release have given fans a taste of the super-fashionable, [article id="1663639"]post-apocalyptic world that Beyoncé[/article] and her supermodel minions inhabit in the video. Donning couture by Givenchy and Norma Kamali, Queen B looks stylish while fending off an opposing army.
The song is the lead single off [article id="1663665"]Beyoncé's forthcoming album, 4.[/article] She recently spoke to Billboard.com about the track, which hasn't sparked much interest on the charts (it has yet to climb into the top 10). "It's definitely riskier than something a bit more ... simple," she said. "I just heard the track and loved that it was so different. It felt a bit African, a bit electronic and futuristic. It reminded me of what I love, which is mixing different cultures and eras — things that typically don't go together — to create a new sound.
"I can never be safe; I always try and go against the grain. As soon as I accomplish one thing, I just set a higher goal," she continued. "That's how I've gotten to where I am."
