The song that has been on my brain the most this week:
- “If I Were a Boy,” sung by Reba McEntire or Beyonce Knowles.
CMT today debuted nine new music videos, including Oklahoma native Reba McEntire’s soulful countrified performance of “If I Were a Boy.”
The song initially was a hit for R&B star Beyonce, who released it as the co-lead single, along with the smash “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It),” for her 2008 album “I Am… Sasha Fierce.”
Reba performed the pop hit for her episode of the CMT series “Unplugged,” which aired back in spring.
Both divas are talented enough to be known on a first-name-only basis, and I think both versions of the song are worthy of carrying around inside your brain for several days.
