Here’s a new single from Beyoncé Knowles which could be from her so far unnamed upcoming album which will be out in June. Beyoncé has teamed up with production maestros and all around DJ dons Diplo and Switch (who together are Major Lazer) for this track, and they’ve reworked “Pon De Floor”, a big hit from the Major Lazer debut album Guns Don’t Kill People…Lazers Do. While it’s cool that they’re working with Beyoncé, isn’t it pretty surprising that a new single from the biggest popstar around isn’t a totally new production?

Is this going to be another “Single Ladies” style super-hit? Listen/download below, and hit the jump for the well worth watching, but NSFW video for “Pon De Floor” and see just how similar the two songs are.

UPDATE: Diplo is not credited for the production on this song, but Switch is. It was co-written by The Dream.
