I enjoyed it! See a heavy Jackson 5, James Brown and New Edition influence to this and she sounds great!

She did the same thing with B'Day. She had a video for practically the entire album.

I believe Resentment was the only thing on there that didn't get a music video.

She's not the first artist to do it either though, although I think that rings true by her not taking breaks between albums and projects.

I love the B'Day era, she got it right then Sasha was alright to me, but I believe she has peaked.

The video is boring and average... nothing creative about it.

I didnt even get through the whole thing. The dancing/choregraphy is average as usual far from impressive.... same o.. same o... I dont know why she wore a leotard.. I didnt get that??

Yes, it's an obvious homage to New Edition.

Beyonce is constantly paying "homage" to artists though. If this was anyone else, they'd get called out. Beyonce always makes cheap, uninspired video's that rip off other artists. This is why for me I can't take her too seriously. Everyone is inspired by someone, but this girl has no originality whatsoever.

"And When The Groove Is Dead And Gone, You Know That Love Survives, So We Can Rock Forever" RIP MJ heart

"Baby, that was much too fast"...Goodnight dear sweet Prince. I'll love you always heart

She wore a bodysuit cause that formula worked for Single Ladies and follow-up videos. Guess she tossed the robo-glove aside for this lol If she was already pregnant for this, that explains keeping it simple, but I like what she did with her arms on cue with the music and the moves.

A hobo could do the cha cha slide in the middle of the street and some of yall would still find it entertaining. lol

I know we all have opinions but geezz its almost as if everything well to SOME of yall everything or anything this chick does its so entertaining to some LOL, when all she does is copies, rips off countless recycled concepts or just does the same things...

I can think of a TON of videos that have been inspired by the temptations, new edition, jackson 5 concept and were alot better than this boring video..

but I guess different strokes for different folks lol

she's definitely not the first or last to do it, it's been that way for so many years and it's fun pointing it out for them too, cause they are still themselves

lol

didn't she just release a new video last week?! nuts "Countdown"?

It seems like,with this album,she's just throwing everything at the wall to try to see what sticks lol I don't know if that strategy is working.None of these songs have become hits.

Not pop hits anyway. "Best Thing I Never Had" and "Love On Top" are getting quite a few spins on urban radio. I haven't checked on "Countdown's" spins yet.

Beyonce hasn't even been in the top ten with her singles at all this year. Forget reaching #1.

Times are changing I had a bad feeling about this album mainly because I feel she don't fit in with the other pop girls (the songs).

Beyonce is jsut so extra, when I see her work it feels like a parody/joke to me. I just don't get it.

Is she doing that "release-a-video-for-every-song-on-the-album" routine again? lol

I could watch it till the end only cause I like the song. The videos are so boring these days. No wonder MTV has to air reality shows instead of music.

"When Michael Jackson is just singing and dancing, you just think this is an astonishing talent. And he has had this astounding talent all his life, but we want him to be floored as well. We really don´t like the idea that he could have it all."
