After two big-budget clips, Run The World (Girls), in which she attempted to channel a feminist revolution, and the romantic Best Thing I Never Had, it is the ballad 1 +1 that now gets to have a clip.
Without dancers, the video focuses on the physique of Queen Be who changes several outfits throughout the video.
The singer appears covered with glitter on the face and body, facing the camera, covered in water or with the light projected onto her.
Described by Beyoncé as her “favorite” on her latest album 4, the song will be one of many videos “which will be released to visually tell the story of 4,” according to her record label Columbia .
The 29-year-old singer debuted the ballad on the final of American Idol in May.
