Riff: Beyonce Knowles – “Grown Woman”

Apr 10, 2013

They love the way I walk/Cause I walk with a vengeance/And they listen to me when I talk ’cause I ain’t pretending

from Grown Woman lyrics by Beyonce Knowles

Shut up, AOL – sharing most of a song title doesn’t make it a “rip-off;” no one’s buying the contrived drama. Anyway, everybody involved phones in this Timbaland production, hinting that “grown woman” is Beyoncése for “human billboard.” The Super Bowl’s over, so let’s stop caring about ads; [LISTEN].
