Ok I know I posted this video a few weeks ago AND there's the whole weird Calvin Klein-esque circa 1994 intro thing, but I can't help but fall madly in love with this song every time I hear it, so I'm bringin' that biznitch back:

I actually prefer the original "If I Were A Boy" by BC Jean.

I dunno, I just can't get down with Beyonce's. And far too may times, especially lately, she's been accused of biting someone elses style.

Ciara's on the other hand, I love! I love the lyrics, the concept, the video, choreography. It was a great vid, very original.

If I were a boy...I would not ride Bay Area Rapid Transit... I would feel ashamed that we as a nation ...pay and educate doctors ...who are faced with life and death decisions as their trade....yet... police are required to have 22 weeks (only) of training, to make the same decisions... a life is a life.... for those of you who have not heard, the New Year started with a bang in Oakland....A young man was murdered by police...

Law enforcement is a service industry that that is driven by what seems to be a new motto...Protect and serve...is now Protect those who Deserve...(the rich)\\Good Luck being gay,everyone...

I really value Ciara's inclusion of (what appear to be) masculine identified women in her video. Her tune is a bit more catchy to me, and I'm disappointed that it didn't get more airtime than gave it. Do you think gender-bending Ciara et. al. could have been perceived as a threat to masculinity and that's why it didn't become more popular?
