On That Leak: Beyonce "Beautiful Nitemare"

Beyonce "Beautiful Nitemare" (prod. by Polow Da Don): New cut from her as-yet-untitled next album, rumored to be released later this year? Who knows, but this fits into that "electro-pop" sound that has been big over the last year (thank you, Rihanna, Kanye West and all of you other Urban Popsters who are embracing sounds we loved 20 years ago). I'm on the fence with this one - if this had come out in, say, 2006, I would be all over this just for the fact that it's a pretty big departure from B's previous hits. But with everyone from Danity Kane to Janet Jackson putting out albums with this sound right now, it's almost like she hopped on the bandwagon. I do like her vocal on this, and I could see this growing on the clubs, especially with a dope guest verse from a Kanye or someone who could spit some cool spunk over that beat.
