Beyonce Glistens + Rihanna Cheers

beyonce-1+1

She may not know much about algebra, but when it comes to music videos, Beyoncé’s expertise is unmatched.

Queen B premiered the video for her power ballad “1+1″ on E!, just days before her performance at MTV’s 2011 VMAs. The clip — which was directed by Beyoncé, Laurent Briet and Ed Burke — is the third from her 4 LP and the first in a series of story-driven videos from the album.

As the acoustic guitar strings are plucked and black screen fades in, Beyoncé comes into focus. She strands with blond hair draped just below her exposed shoulders. The honey-dipped diva glistens with a top coat of glitter all over her body. Looking as sexy as ever, turning her head from right to left with her eyes fixed off-camera, the sultry singer starts her vocal seduction. “If I ain’t got nothin’, I got you,” she belts out.

Check the video below and the rest of the article here.

The song is a chill, reggae and island-inspired jam about letting the Jameson sink in and not letting the bastards get you down and the video reflects that. The video culls footage from RiRi’s recently wrapped Loud tour so there are plenty of glimpses of her rock hard body and those high-waisted shorts that she pairs with a bikini top.

That live footage is spliced together with clips of her running around backstage with a flip cam, getting on airplanes, putting on her makeup and driving in a convertible, with her brown curls blowing in the wind. Avril Lavigne, who appears on the song, contributing a nasally “Yeah yeah yeah yeah” sample, has a cameo in the vid that amounts to about three scenes. We see Av holding up a red plastic solo cup, presumably filled with a liquid that makes you want to say ‘Cheers,’ and we see her diving in a pool, having a grand old time, too.
