Way back in January I wrote a cheeky post about "Why Don't You Love Me?" being the 9th single from "Sasha Fierce". At the time the song was rapidly climbing the US dance chart (it eventually became the 5th of 6 #1 club hits from SF) and basically, I thought - why the fuck not? As it turns out, a similar idea obviously ran through Queen B's mind because the Solange penned anthem is currently being dusted off for an official release. Hell, yes! "Why Don't You Love Me?" is an amazing track that fully deserves its moment in the sun. And I'm not just saying that because it will help fund her little sister's next flop album. I genuinely love retro 70s Beyoncé. "Work It Out" has always been a favourite of mine and this is as close as she's come to re-visiting that period ever since. Surprisingly, Bey's gone all out with the video. A leaked preview (above) finds the diva in fine form, paying homage to blaxploitation films by posing as B.B. Homemaker - a desperate housewife with a bad smoking habit, short shorts and a killer pair of heels! Beyjesus looks stunning despite being covered in motor oil and I'm glad she recycled her fabulous wig from "Telephone". It's great to see Beyoncé finally cutting loose and having some fun. Strike this up as a thank you to her fans and stans. Keep 'em coming, B!
It's already here! And even better than I hoped for. Am I the only one who thinks working with Lady GaGa loosened Beyoncé up? All of a sudden she's doing housework in her skimpy outfits, smoking like a chimney and sucking down martinis in the bath. It's like she put a spy camera in my house! My favourite part is definitely when she dusts all her Grammy awards. This video is clever, funny and beautifully put together. I wonder if Sony Australia is brave enough to give the song a push over here. It's just weird and wonderful enough to work over. Particularly the catchy Jump Smokers remix. Anyway, prepare to be blown away by Beyjesus at her most fabulous. Sweetheart, if you're listening and have a couple of spare hours up your sleeve, I'd really love videos for "Smash Into You" and "Radio". But none of that black & white shit. Cheers.
