It’s time for the third installment of Beyonce’s “Self-Titled” webisode series. Somebody grab the popcorn!
In part one, we found out how and why Queen Bey keep the album hush-hush from the world, in part two, we got a closer glimpse into the superstar’s “not-perfect” perfection, and now in part three, we see the surprise visual album come together with behind-the-scenes footage from the sexy video shoot for “Drunk In Love” with hubby Jay Z.
“This was probably the most organize shoot I’ve ever done,” Beyonce revealed. “We decided two days ago to do this video and it was so much fun. It was just on the beach and it was just us two and it was perfect.”
“It’s been interesting the last few videos. We’ve been deciding what we’re going to do as we’re there and there’s something about that freedom that is different for me because I normally plan things. And I’m trying to rebel against perfection,” she said of the visuals for the fifth album. “I wanted to carry this idea of being in the moment and embracing mistakes and effortlessness into the videos. I wish every video was like ‘Drunk.’”
She also shared footage from the sets of “XO,” “Yonce” and “No Angel.” Check out the full clip below, and be on the look out for part four!
