Beyoncé releases controversial new songs

Beyonce Bow Down
Los Angeles - Beyoncé has previewed two new tracks, Bow Down and I Been On.

The 31-year-old singer unveiled an audio clip of her first new material since 2011's 4 album on her website on Sunday.

The track was accompanied by a photo of the singer as a child standing in a room full of trophies.

Lyrics include the lines: "I know when you were little girls you dreamt of being in my world / Don't forget it / Respect that / Bow Down bitches."

Elsewhere she sings: "I took my time to live my life but don't think I'm just his little wife / Don't get it twisted this is my shit."

Divided opinion

The clip takes pieces from two different songs, Bow Down which has reportedly been produced by Hit-Boy and I Been On which is thought to have been made with Timbaland.

Beyoncé's lyrics appear to refer to her absence from the music industry as she has become a mother to daughter Blue Ivy, now 14-months, and her husband, rapper Jay-Z, but her choice of words and apparent attitude has divided opinion.

One fan wrote on Twitter: "I'm not sorry that @beyonce is a trend-setter and doesn't sound like everyone else. It's about changing the game #beyhive (sic)"

However, others were left surprised at her outburst.

One user wrote: "how can u sing at the presidents inauguration then release this disgusting, offensive song @beyonce? I'm genuinely shocked (sic)"

Beyoncé is set to start her Mrs. Carter Show tour next month.
