"Runnin' (Lose It All)": Video and Lyrics for Beyoncé and Arrow Benjamin's New Single
Queen B never skips a beat: Beyoncé has been making rounds in the music festival circuit this summer, vacationing on the Galactica Star and even put aside time to release a new hit with Arrow Benjamin.
British producer Naughty Boy teamed up with the two performers to release an avant-garde music video, accompanied by a strong ballad with a classic drum-and-bass beat.
The lyrics center around a relationship seemingly tearing at the seams, as Beyoncé laments the loss of her partner in life. The song continues and both partners decide to sacrifice everything for each other, becoming entangled underwater.
"These four lonely walls have changed the way I feel, I'm standing still," Beyoncé sings as a piano plays in the background. "And nothing else matters now, you're not here, so where are you? I've been callin' you, I'm missing you.
"Where else can I go? Where else can I go? Chasin' you, chasin' you/ Memories turn to dust, please don't bury us, I got you, I got you."
Arrow Benjamin croons over the beat throughout the second verse, as the song quickly becomes more of a dance-club hit. "I've outrun the fears that chased, they're standin' still. I'm runnin' still, I'm runnin' still/ And every voice that cries inside my head, forever drives, forever drives, I kill the lights."
Beyoncé and Arrow Benjamin perform a duet in the second chorus: "Runnin', runnin', runnin', runnin', runnin', runnin', runnin'/ Ain't runnin' from myself no more, together we'll win it all/ I ain't runnin', runnin', runnin', runnin', runnin', runnin', runnin'/ Ain't runnin' from myself no more, I'm ready to face it all/ If I lose myself, I lose it all.."
