Beyonce releases "Green Light" single
"Green Light" is an R&B–funk song written by Beyoncé Knowles, Sean Garrett, and Pharrell for Beyoncé's second solo studio album, B'Day (2006). Produced by The Neptunes,it was released as the fifth UK single on July 30, 2007.
It was primarily produced for R&B singer Amerie, for her 3rd studio album, "Because I Love It", but was rejected on grounds of project funding and forwarded to label mate Beyoncé. The song received positive responses from critics.
The single performed moderately on charts. "Green Light" peaked at number 12 on the UK Singles Chart and at number 46 in Ireland. The Freemasons remix of the track peaked at number 18 on the Dutch Top 40 chart. Its accompanying music video is inspired by Robert Palmer's 1985 music video "Addicted to Love". Beyoncé considered the video, which is her second to feature her all-female tour band Suga Mama, her toughest shoot.
