[artist id="1236911"]Beyoncé[/artist] isn’t wasting any time unveiling cuts off her upcoming album 4. After releasing the project’s Major Lazer-sampled lead single “Run the World (Girls),” the pop star unveiled her power ballad “1+1″ on the finale of “American Idol” and is now set to release “Best Thing I Never Had” on Wednesday.
News about the tune’s radio release first surfaced online late last week when Pittsburgh radio ration Kiss 96.1 reportedly received an email from B’s camp. When MTV News reached out for comment, a representative for the singer confirmed the approaching radio date.
Not much is known about B’s new tune, but from the looks of it, the entertainer may have already given fans a preview of the track during a recent album listening session in New York. JustJared.com reports that the second song played during the event was a midtempo tune about karma with drums similar to “Girls.” Written by Babyface, the song reportedly features vengeful lines like “You showed your ass, baby, I saw the real you.”
“Best Thing I Never Had” is just one of the pop star’s forthcoming cuts from her 12-song album, which hits stores in less than a month. Just last week, the music sensation revealed the track list for the forthcoming LP on Facebook. In addition to “Best Thing I Never Had,” 4 also includes “Party” featuring Andre 3000, “Rather Die Young” and “Start Over.”
