Beyoncé has already teased "Standing on the Sun" in her summer ad campaign for H&M, now you can hear the full track after it leaked online earlier today. There's still no word whether the song will appear on her fifth album, or when the singer will be ready to release the in-progress LP, but she has described the songs she's been working on as both "empowering" and "a lot more sensual."

“You Oughta Know”

Alanis Morissette | 1995

This blunt, bitter breakup song -- famous for its line "Would she go down on you in a theater?" -- was long rumored to be about Alanis Morissette getting dumped by Full House actor Dave Coulier. But while she never confirmed it was about him (Coulier himself says it is, however), she insisted the song wasn't all about scorn. "By no means is this record just a sexual, angry record," she told Rolling Stone. "The song wasn't written for the sake of revenge. It was written for the sake of release. I'm actually a pretty rational, calm person."
