The 'Countdown' singer is said to be keen for her new track to be of the same calibre as 'Single Ladies'.

Beyonce is reportedly still deciding on which song to release as the lead single from her new album.

The 'Party' singer is yet to officially announce a release for her highly anticipated fifth studio album, and is said to be going back and forth over which track to launch the record with.

"Beyonce is a perfectionist and her biggest competition is herself," a source told The Sun this week. "She won't put anything out as her first single until she's 100 per cent sure it will be a classic.

"She's putting pressure on herself for it to be a hit of 'Single Ladies' calibre, and to make sure she's on top of the game," they explained.

The source went on to say that 'Love On Top' star Beyonce had originally planned to release either 'Grown Woman' or 'Bow Down' as the record's lead single, before opted to release neither of the newly unveiled tracks.

"The first single was supposed to be 'Grown Woman' but that got cancelled and used as a teaser for her new Pepsi ad," they added.

Earlier this week Beyonce featured in a series of new promo images as part of H&M's new summer 2013 campaign, showing off her beach-ready bikini body in the pictures.
