Last Saturday, the crew at Saturday Night Live put on a parody in honor of baby Blue Ivy Carter. The clip opens up with Beyonce (played by actress Maya Rudolph) and Jay-Z chatting it up in their mansion as B cradles the baby to sleep. Suddenly, Prince pops into the room, followed by surprise visits from LL Cool J, Nicki Minaj Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Taylor Swift, and Bon Iver.
As the battle for the Republican nomination rages on, the Democratic Party kicks into full gear and does so in the most couture way possible — with Vogue Editor, Anna Wintour calling upon music industry icons to take part in “Runway to Win.”
In honor of the birth of Lady B and Jay-Z’s newborn daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, we have declared “Glory” as today’s pick of the day. This past Sunday morning, January 8, welcomed the couple’s first child after a decade long relationship.
In a flurry of rapid music video releases, Beyoncé is out with her latest edition, the ”Dance For You” bonus track off her concert DVD “Live at Roseland: Elements of 4.” The music video is shot is black and white and features Beyoncé dancing seductively for a stoic detective watching from the shadows. The clip is filmed prior to her much raved about baby bump and Lady B dons lacy lingerie and silk for the part. The video goes for a 50s, film noir mood, and takes place in the detective’s office while Beyoncé struts her stuff on his desk. Although, despite the risqué atmosphere of “Dance For You,” the music video is a bit blasé when compared to her previous work and falls short of anything extraordinary. Still, it’s a fun number worthy of checking out.
To date, Beyoncé has delivered six sensational music videos from her platinum album, “4.” Among them are the dance hit, “Party,” “Run The World (Girls)” and “Best Thing I Never Had.” Now she’s getting ready to unleash the seventh video “Dance For You,” which will also be included on her DVD “Live at Roseland: Elements of 4,” coming out November 29th.
