It's Beyoncé like you've never heard her before.
The singer, famous for her sexy but All-American image, is causing quite a stir with her new song. It's called "Bow Down", and it features some very edgy lyrics: "I know when you were little girls, you dreamt of being in my world. Don't forget it. Don't forget it. Respect that. Bow down bitches."
That's right, "bow down bitches."
The 31-year-old singer released a 3:34 clip of the song on her Tumblr page. She posted it with a photo of herself as an innocent little kid—quite a contrast to those lyrics.
Now, many of her fans are expressing outrage about the new song.
"How can u sing at the presidents inauguration then release this disgusting, offensive song?" tweeted one fan. "I'm genuinely shocked."
'This song is randomly offensive, and is way out of Beyoncé's lane," tweeted another fan.
E! correspondent Alicia Quarles told INSIDE EDITION, "Beyoncé is America's sweetheart, but everyone has to change their image at some point. So, she's saying these kind of profane words. People are divided. Some people love the single, and other people are like, 'Is this a joke? What is she doing?' "
