Beyoncé's new single "Run the World (Girls)" is set to be released in the iTunes store tomorrow after a version of the song leaked earlier this week. The track, which includes a sample of Major Lazer's "Pon De Floor," was co-written by The-Dream and Beyoncé, and produced by Switch with help from the singer and Shea Taylor. Diplo, Switch's partner in the Major Lazer project, is not credited on the song. "Run the World (Girls)" will be the first taste of her forthcoming album, which does not yet have a title or release date.

“Wake Up Everybody”

John Legend and the Roots | 2010

A Number One record by Harold Melvin and the Bluenotes in 1976 (a McFadden- and Whitehead-penned classic sung by Teddy Pendergrass) inspired the title and lead single from Wake Up!, John Legend's tribute album to message music. The more familiar strains of "Wake Up Everybody" also fit his agenda. "It basically sums up, in a very concise way, all the things we were thinking about when we were putting this record together in that it's about justice, doing the right thing and coming together to make the world a better place," he said. Vocalists Common and Melanie Fiona assist Legend on this mission to connect.
