And I said, 'This is genius.' We kept a lot of the Fosse choreography and added the down-south thing—it's called J-Setting, where one person does something and the next person follows. It's like the most urban choreography, mixed with Fosse—very modern and very vintage.In the video Beyoncé wears a titanium roboglove designed by her long-time jeweler, Lorraine Schwartz, to complement her alter ego Sasha Fierce.Globally, it was 2009's seventh best-selling digital single with 6.1 million units sold thus becoming one of the best-selling singles of all time.A black-and-white music video accompanied the single's release.It won several awards, including the Video of the Year at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards.Beyoncé has performed "Single Ladies" on television and during her concert tours.The song and particularly its music video have been widely parodied and imitated.

Several news media sources named it as one of the best songs of 2008, while some considered it one of the best songs of the decade.

Daniel Brockman of The Phoenix complimented the song's use of the word "it", and wrote that the technique "sums up her divided musical persona far more effectively than the [album's] two-disc split-personality gimmick." She further commented that it was pleasant hear a voice which "changes timbre naturally, a voice with actual cracks and fissures (however slight)" in contrast to the "Auto-Tune epidemic that seems to be plaguing so many of her mainstream pop peers".
Douglas Wolf of Time magazine added that "Single Ladies" is a sing-along which allows Beyoncé to demonstrate her virtuosity and "a focused, commanding display of individuality that speaks for every raised hand without a ring on it".
