Watch Beyonce's no-frills, no-pants video for '7/11'

Posted on

BEYONCE VIDEO

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.
