Still haven’t gone to the trouble of downloading Beyoncé, the star’s self-titled surprise visual album? (Who could blame you — all that clicking!) If so, you’re in luck — because its super sexy “Yoncé” video is now available for free online.
Who, exactly, is Yoncé? Just consider her a fiercer Sasha Fierce — tricked out with grills, a belly ring, and outfits like a bondage-inspired orange bathing suit. She’s also pals with supermodels Jourdan Dunn, Joan Smalls, and Chanel Iman.
“I wanted to do something sexy and provocative, but not so overt,” video director Ricky Saiz told New York Magazine shortly after Beyoncé’s release. “I feel like the Mileys and the Rihannas have that covered and this was more sophisticated. There are a lot of references to nineties eroticism and Madonna videos. We shot it against one wall for the most part, so I was looking a lot of Carlo Molino photos. I feel like they are some of the sexiest photographs ever taken of women. They are so simple and voyeuristic and raw.”
