New Video from Beyonce – Party

Beyonce’s highly anticipated music video for her new single “Party” has finally been premiered on BET’s 106th & Park show. The Kanye West-produced track is the latest offering from the R&B/pop singer’s platinum selling album “4”. For the video, Beyonce’s song features the official remix with J Cole. The Roc Nation rapper is also present in the backyard fiesta visual, alongside Kelly Rowland and Solange. I love it. It’s a very simple clip but it fits the song perfectly. I think it captured the flow and the vibe of the song and, as usual, Beyonce looks stunning. What do you think?

Michelle Obama Loves Beyonce

US First Lady Michelle Obama recently answered a Twitter question in which she talked about listening to music while exercising for the Let’s Move campaign. Michelle said in regards to what songs are on her iPod “I always love Beyonce, so anything that’s fast-paced that she’s doing is a good one for me. I have very eclectic taste, so my playlist on my iPod runs from fast-paced to a little more mellow.” I wonder if the first lady ever tries to do some of Beyonce’s choreography. Maybe I should tweet her that. What do you think? She looks like she can get her groove on.

Idris Elba has compared Jay-Z to Stringer Bell, the drug-dealing character he played on cult TV series, The Wire. The Luther actor says that when he met the rapper he was immediately reminded of the role that made him a star in the US. “There’s a way Jay-Z looks you dead in your eye and doesn’t look away that reminded me of Stringer,” Elba, 39, tells Essence magazine. The irony of the comparison is not lost on the Hackney-born actor who is aware of the rapper’s past career as a drug dealer. Born Shawn Corey Carter, Jay-Z started selling crack cocaine in his Brooklyn neighbourhood when he was just 13. The 41-year-old has been open about his criminal past. Elba met Jay-Z at the premiere of Obsessed, the 2009 film he starred in opposite the rapper’s wife, Beyonce.

New Song from Jay-Z, Kanye West and Beyonce – Lift Off

Check out one of the most anticipated tracks from Kanye West and Jay-Z’s joint album “Watch the Throne”. The song is called “Lift Off”. It was co-produced by Jeff Bhasker and Mike Dean, and features Beyonce. The two rappers spit some sick verses while the R&B singer takes charge of an anthem-sounding hook, all over a cool retro production. I think this is one of the stand outs on the album and I hope that they decide to give this the single treatment. I can only imagine the greatness of this being performed lived as well as the epic music video that will go with it.

Beyonce Certified Platinum

All it took was a month and Beyonce’s new album “4” has now been certified platinum. This is because the album has hit the one million units shipped mark. I would just like to point out that “shipped” doesn’t mean that the albums are “sold”. Some people are calling the R&B singer’s latest album a flop but Beyonce herself said that she wasn’t really aiming to break records with “4”. She said “I really wanted to get the critical acclaim. I feel like the longer I do this—I’ve been doing it for 15 years now—No. 1s are amazing, but to see some of the comments that the Rolling Stone and The New York Times and all of these credible, amazing, really critical magazines and papers [are saying] has really made me my proudest.”
