Beyonce went against the grain on this one. And I’m sure she will come out on top as always. She has some dedicated fans that really support her and I know they’ve been anxiously awaiting her album. Was it perfect timing?
For her single Partition, shows her cage dancing for her husband of five years Jay Z. The raunchy 30 second clip opens with a stripped down Bey writhing around on a mirrored floor in little more than a thong and sequined cap.
Peep the pics and videos below….
Here’s what the Queen Bey had to say:
‘All this sh-t I hear is boring, I don’t trust these record labels, I’m torn’ -Beyonce
I feel like right now, people experience music differently. I remember watching Thriller on TV with my family, it was an event, we all sat around the TV and now looking back, I am so happy I was born around that time. I miss that immersive experience. Now, people only listen to a few seconds of a song on their IPODS, they don’t really invest in a whole album. It’s all about the single and the hype. There’s so much that gets between the music, and the artists and the fans. I felt like, I don’t want anybody to give the message when my record is coming out. I just want this to come out when it is ready, and from me to my fans.
I told my team, ‘I want to shoot a video for every song and put them all out at the same time!’ Everyone thought I was crazy, but we’re actually doing it, it’s happening!’
I wanted to make this body of work, and I feel like it’s something that’s lost in pop music. I wanted people to hear things differently and have a first impression. Not just listen to a 10 second clip, but actually be able to see a whole vision of the album. It was important that we made this a movie, we made this an experience.
I wanted everyone to see the whole picture, and to see how personal everything was to me. I will make my best art and just put it out. And that’s why it’s out today!
Gumbumpers, what do you think?
