Beyoncé's new track "Grown Woman" has leaked, and the aggressive, defiant track can now be heard online at The Huffington Post. Beyoncé briefly teased the song in a Pepsi ad in April, and the full version continues the busy tribal beats and self-assured vocals of the trailer. "I'm a grown woman," Beyoncé sings on the percussion dominated track. "Do whatever I want."

Jay-Z: Beyonce Not Pregnant

Though "Grown Woman" has surfaced, there's no word on if the track will be on Beyoncé's long-awaited new album, and the singer has yet to announce a title or release date for the record. Beyoncé was rumored to be pregnant last week, and canceled a show in Antwerp, Belgium on doctor's orders due to dehydration and exhaustion. But husband Jay-Z denied the news, saying they were not expecting another child.

The 31-year-old singer is currently on a world tour, with her next show set for tomorrow in Munich, Germany.

“Bizness”

Tune-Yards | 2011

The opening track to Merrill Garbus’ second album under the Tune-Yards banner (she also plays in the trio Sister Suvi), “Bizness” is a song about relationships that is as colorful as the face paint favored by Garbus both live and in her videos. Disjointed funk bass, skittering African beats, diced-and-sliced horns and Garbus’ dynamic voice, which ranges from playful coos to throat-shredding howls, make “Bizness” reminiscent of another creative medium. “I'd like for them not to be songs as much as quilts or collages or something,” Garbus said.
