When discussing all the different elements and styles of music she incorporated in I Am…Sasha Fierce, Beyoncé said of this track:

You can hear with ‘If I Were A Boy,’ it’s not a traditional R&B song. It’s difficult to grow and to break out and do new things because people have strong expectations. I feel like at this point, I wanted people to hear songs with stronger lyrics and songs that made you feel. I love singing ballads because I feel like the music and the emotion in the story is told so much better.

BC Jean, who co-wrote the song with Toby Gad, told Hartford Courant about her reaction when she got a phone call saying that Beyoncé would be recording her song.

At first I was confused, because I never thought of myself as writing songs for other people. I had always written for myself and was trying to get signed and do the whole artist thing as well. It’s an amazing compliment, but I was like, “That’s great, but it’s going to be on my album!” And it can be on my album, too, I just didn’t realize how it worked. This was my first cut ever; I’ve never written for anybody else. It was not my initial intention, but it’s opened so many doors, it’s amazing.

That actually is true with her latest ballad If I Were A Boy, the first single from her 3rd album I Am. Sasha Fierce, is actually her most-heartfelt ballad yet. The song speaks a more meaningful message.

The song started because I had the title. Toby and I had written about 11 songs together over a week or two. Whenever I said anything interesting, he would take out a little tape recorder and start recording me just talking. Our communication was very interesting – he’s European. So we were walking through Times Square, and I said, “I wish I were a boy,” and he’s like, “Why would you say that? That’s very weird to me.” I said, “That pizza smells really good, and I’m trying not to eat carbs, and I wish I were a boy so I didn’t care.” That’s how the song started, and he was like, “What else would you do if you were a boy?” And I was going through a really hard breakup with my first real love, so I said, “I’d be a better man than my ex-boyfriend!” And he asked, “How would you sing it?” So I’m just singing in Times Square into his recording thing, and we went back to the studio, and he had a guitar part. We recorded it that day; it was so simple. I remember Toby looking at me and going, “We just wrote a smash.” I thought he was crazy. I was like, “Really?”
