Beyonce has kept us busy releasing video after video. This week she shows us that she likes to “Party,” whether it’s in a trailer park or motel room.
She keeps it stylish with her retro wear throughout the entire video. Keep an eye out for appearances by Kelly Rowland, Solange doing her DJ thing, and rapper Theophilus London.
There was a little talk as to why Andre 3000 was replaced with J.Cole in the video version. It’s not so much the fact that people don’t like J.Cole, they’re just curious to why Andre was replaced.
In a interview with Deanna Cruz and Vezzy Parmesan of Hot 106 Rise and Grind Morning Show, this is what J.Cole had to say:
Do you know how many verses I did for that song? I did a version before her album even came out. I did two verses and I love those verses too but they ended up going with Andre’s verse and Andre killed it. Then she reached out to me and wanted me to get on the remix. Out of the second set I did, she picked the first one, but [I liked] my second verse–I just got to say for the record–but it was too long. I think she was looking for something shorter and more to the point. But it’s a blessing to even to be able to work with Beyonce.
I’m on my defensive rapper because when you follow in Andre 3000 shoes, you’re expected to really go in, so that’s why I say that about getting defensive. But just the fact to be on the song with her and then to be shooting that video with her, being in her presence and she’s such a hard working and incredible artist, that’s a blessing. I will never forget that day we shot the video, I’ll never forget being on that song and hopefully we get more as time goes on, so shout out to Beyonce.
