In case you somehow didn’t hear, Beyonce, the woman who managed to keep an entire album and its 17 videos under lock and key last year, had two songs—”7/11″ and “Ring Off”—leak in one week. But instead of throwing a fit, she’s handed us a video for “7/11” early. It’s not exactly the glossy, Beyonce-esque production we’ve come to expect, but it’s just as fun to watch.
Instead, “7/11” is playful and casual — playing out like that time you and your cousins were bored on vacation and figured, Hey, why not make a music video? The entire clip seems to be shot from some hotel room somewhere, and was most likely done in a single afternoon. Instead of stilettos, Bey wears a lot of frumpy sweatshirts, some bath robes, and, for about 85 percent of it, no pants.
Both “7/11” and “Ring Off” will appear on the Beyonce deluxe edition.
