Friday the thirteenth did not scare or frown upon Beyoncé and her husband, well let’s just say the Carter Family. They pulled off the biggest heist in music history on December 13, 2013. A week later, and over 1 million copies sold, people are still talking about not just the heist but the quality and the artistic value of the videos, especially Drunken Love. The directors did their thing.
Congratulations to Hype Williams for capturing Beyoncé in her freest element in black and white in the Drunken Love Video. The video is crazy, she seems to have been free styling “The Beyoncé Way”, and it was just captivating, her camera presence is very effortless and intriguing. As they would say in the neighborhood “She Did That”!
Not only did she do that, but her husband did that too! He looked nice in the video, nothing like his age of 44, but very much like a young man in his mid-30’s. Rockin’ a crispy white tee, a New York fitted cap and the smoothest neck-line a barber could offer.
He did his thing…, “One can see why Beyoncé is always saying she loves her some Jay-Z! I can’t wait until Jay-Z gets buff in his next video…You have to believe it’s coming, I don’t think he went Vegan for nothing. Everyone knows that New Yorker’s can’t stay away from a great meal, unless it is for a great reason. And getting buff is a great reason!
The video Drunken Love began to dominate the radio early the next week after the drop of her self-titled album Beyoncé, and it seems to be growing at 1,000,000 views per day.
Tell us if you think that Jay-Z will end 2013 as “The Newest Sex Symbol” of the Year?
