Video News: Beyonce's "Girl" To Be About Female Empowerment

Beyonce - 25th Anniversary Gala of Radio One
News continues to hit the net about Beyonce's first single, Girl, which she is currently in LA shooting the video for now.  Roc4Life reports that there will be about 200 female dancers in the video and that the video and the song are about Female Empowerment.  The video is being directed by, famed director, Francis Lawrence.

Via Roc4Life/ONTD:
The theme of "Girl" is like a female empowerment/girl power type of song that is a definite club banger with Top 40/Worldly appeal. The beat is driven by a sample of a popular club song that a lot of you will probably recognize. There's a breakdown in the song that is described as absolutely f-cking disgustingly sick! Definitely an anthem in the style of her singing. My friend couldn't remember exact lyrics, but "Girl...girl....girl" is repeated a lot through out the song.

No males will be dancing except these 2 African men that do this sick solo African intro with footwork at the top of the routine. There may be more, but at the meeting today only those 2 men were dancing. Bey will have an army of like 100 or more girls. 20 of them will be doing the choreography with her and there will be like 100 of them behind her carrying sticks and marching. Men will be used as props and actors with the girls coming all in their faces and intimidating them. Again, the concept wasn't revealed so that's just connecting the dots with the choreography and small information that was given. It definitely looks like Bey will have an army or lesion of girls for one of the scenes that is presumably being shot on the 13th. Expect a full out dance number with lots of choreography.
