About End of Time

"End of Time" is a song recorded by American singer Beyoncé for her fourth studio album, 4 (2011). It was written by Knowles, Terius "The-Dream" Nash, Shea Taylor and David "Switch" Taylor while its production was handled by Knowles, Nash and Taylor. The song was initially touted to be a follow up to the lead single, "Run the World (Girls)" (2011). However, "Best Thing I Never Had" was ultimately chosen as the second single. In February 2012, it was announced through Knowles' website that "End of Time" will be the sixth and final single from 4 within International markets. It was sent to promoted to a release date of April 23, 2012 in the UK. An uptempo song, "End of Time" exhibits the influence of late Nigerian music legend Fela Kuti; its bass line was inspired by the multi-instrumentalist's work. Also displaying elements of Afrobeat, the song's instrumentation includes marching band drums, percussion and horns. The high energy level provided by its instrumentation has similarities to several songs by Michael Jackson from the Off the Wall era (1979–80). "End of Time" was lauded by music critics, who coined it as one of highlights on 4 thanks to Knowles' boldness and its dance beat that makes the song a catchy one. Critics also commended the uplifting lyrics and Knowles' confident vocal delivery. Following the release of 4, "End of Time" charted at number 62 on the UK Singles Chart and at number 20 on its R&B Chart, based solely on downloads. It also opened at number 26 on the South Korea Gaon International Singles Chart. The song peaked at number 13 on the US Billboard Bubbling Under Hot 100 chart. The song was part of Knowles' set list for her 4 Intimate Nights with Beyoncé, Revel Presents: Beyoncé Live and The Mrs. Carter World Tour revues; critics generally agreed that the song sounds great when performed live, and showed much appreciation for the choreography.
