Beyoncé "Best Thing I Never Heard"

Coldplay weren't the only major release this week. Beyoncé released "Best Thing I Never Had" the second single from her upcoming fourth studio album 4 and unlike its lead single, it's quite good. A typical "I'm over you" number, its bitter undertones mimicked with its cold drums and percolate piano keys. If anything it's a nice change from the static electro-pop diffusing the pop landscape.

I agree. After "Run the World (Girls)" and "1 + 1", it's nice to see Beyoncé finally release a strong piece. Why wasn't this the first single released off of 4?

I think you already know that I love this song, it's just that do you really think this is exciting? It's so predictable but I still love it. LOL.

I completely agree! I think this should have been first single!
It's a little predictable in terms of the message, but it's still great!
