The lyrics are heartfelt, and hold a lot of meaning. Her voice, is spectacular. This is probably my favorite out of all of her songs. It packs a punch and really makes you sit up and listen.

It has been 3 years since Beyonce' originally released her last album B'Day, and a lot has changed in her life. She got married to her longtime beau Jay-Z, and hard to believe her songs actually got better with age. That actually is true with her latest ballad If I Were A Boy, the first single from her 3rd album I Am... Sasha Fierce, is actually her most-heartfelt ballad yet. The song speaks a more meaningful message about learning from the heartaches and the losses of love, with understanding about what a woman wants, if was in a man's shoes, and the other way around. Unlike other songs she has recorded on her own, this is one that doesn't feel cheesy and flavor of the moment. I don't know why Beyonce' has made songs like this one in her solo efforts. Hopefully, there should be more to come from her like this.

My mother introduced this song to me when I was really getting frustrated and I understood the song instantly. The song is about a girl who wishes she was a guy for one day because the guy is always putting himself first, using her for granted, always with another girl, and he knows his wife will wait for him. Women always put everyone first and themselves last and they always wait for him to come home. The song is from the girl's point of view of how the guy acts and how she wishes to be a boy for one day so that way her man gets a taste of his own medicine. This is an excellent song by Beyonce. Thanks mom for introducing this to me!! ;)

She's such a great role model. Aside from her multi-remarkable talents, she's a good person with good morals, she behaves, sets good examples, doesn't act like most other celebrities of all ages out there, and she's so beautiful too. She is a real person with awesome talent. Great songs as always.

My sister found this song a year ago and it is still one of my favorites. I had never heard it from her before but it is such a heartfelt song and is on my favorite list.

I love Beyonce and I love this song! The song really makes a lot of great points about gender in our society. I also like the video a lot.
