A grammar lesson from Beyonce

Beyonce's new song: If I were a boy is so sweet sounding. But is it supposed to be "If I was a boy?" since "I" is singular and "was" is singular? Or is it "If I were a boy?" - due to some other strange rule? Well, it turns out that Beyonce is right. If something isn't true it's called the "subjunctive mood" and the verb is plural. How interesting.
