“We all have special numbers in our lives, and 4 is that for me,” Beyonce tells Billboard. “It’s the day I was born. My mother’s birthday and a lot of my friends’ birthdays are on the fourth; April 4 is my wedding date. I can never be safe; I always try and go against the grain. As soon as I accomplish one thing, I just set a higher goal,” she said. “That’s how I’ve gotten to where I am.”

For her new album, she will be infusing various genres of music. “I recorded more than 60 songs; everything I ever wanted to try, I just did it,”

Her latest single, Run The World (Girls), with production by Switch, was released April 21, 2011.
