PREMIERE FAB: Beyoncé’s “1+1″ Video
The third video from Beyoncé‘s 4 album is here. If you missed the premiere on E! tonight, we’ve got you covered. Check it under the cut…
“1+1″ is not an official single,” her label Columbia stated today, “but it’s the first song on the album and it’s the first of many videos which will be released to visually tell the story of 4.”
Bey put on her director hat for the vid, along with Laurent Briet and Ed Burke. And she’s called this track, which was written by The Dream, her favorite song on the album.
The video is a simplistic but artistic one one showing mainly her face doused in water and tears. And she gets intimately sexy in a leopard bra and thigh highs and one pieces while seductively dancing with a random buff guy.
Not gonna lie. While the video was visually stunning–I expected more “real” Beyonce with a personal storyline for this song. And less of an “extended Heat perfume commercial” vibe. I needed something more. But it’s beautiful nonetheless.
Beyoncé is also hitting your tv screens again on Sunday at 9pm ET performing (another one of her songs) on the 2011 MTV VMAS, live from the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.
