In his first music video since the globe-straddling Bad Romance for Lady Gaga 18 months ago, Francis Lawrence delivers another winner for the lead single from Beyonce's new album 4 (June 27).

Featuring a cast of thousands, a hundred costume changes brilliantly styled by Ty Hunter and excellent, original choreography, Lawrence matches the 'everything and the kitchen sink' production of Run The World with an exhaustive run of set pieces swiftly edited together, enchancing the marching, mangling soundtrack.
