So. The Queen Bee is about to drop her new album, and while she has kept her die-hard fans salivating by dropping snippets of her new video for Girls (Who Rule The World),

Beyoncé spoke with Billboard about the new album, titled 4, the influence of Fela Kuti, and the departure of her father as her manager.
