Just when we thought Jay Z and Beyonce would take a few days out of the spotlight post “Catergate,” the power couple drop insane trailer visuals for their Grammy Award-nominated duet “On The Run Pt.2” (shortened to “Run”) in line with their “On The Run” tour!
Yikes, so many emotions.
In typical Beyonce fashion, she posted a super cut of the trailer on her Instagram page around 1am without any notice. Hov and Bey channel their “03 Bonnie & Clyde” and cause mayhem as they shoot up the city, flashing shiny revolvers and killer fashion (peep Bey in the lineup) in high-strung bank heists and shootouts. Oh and did we mention, the star-studded lineup of the trailer includes: Sean Penn, Don Cheadle, Guillermo Díaz, Emmy Rossum, Jake Gyllenhaal (so that’s what they were talking about at the game), Blake Lively, Rashida Jones, and Kidada Jones. There are strippers, fight scenes, they blow stuff up and Beyonce’s top knot makes an appearance. Oh gracious Jesus.
In one scene, Bey asks Jay, as she tends to his wound, if he trusts her. In another, she cries to Blake Lively, confessing that she doesn’t know who she is anymore, but she loves him. It’s so dramatic but CHILE we liveee!
Editor’s note: We don’t know what will happen to Emmy Rossum’s career after this. She tried to shoot Beyonce. The Beyhive will surely attack…
As you can imagine (you don’t have to just watch the video), Jay sounds quite awkward cursing and playing the tough guy when he’s rapping about Basquiat’s and fondue these days, but Bey looks great and “Run” feels like a much-wanted extension of “Beyonce.”
Celebrity stylist June Ambrose was on set and posted these behind the scenes photos on her Instagram with the hashtag #Run:
There’s no word when we’ll get the full video but in the mean time, peep the robust teaser above and let us know if you’re still breathing at the end.
