While you were busy getting your life from #PapaPope’s read of Fitz or #MamaPope’s grand finale (white coat and all), Beyoncé was readying a riot with the release of a self-titled, visual album featuring 14 songs and 17 accompanying videos. Of the sonic-visual feast she granted us with, minutes after midnight, our sartorial selves are especially drawn to “Yoncé,” a Ricky Saiz-directed clip featuring a triumvirate of top models: Joan Smalls, Jourdan Dunn, and Chanel Iman.
Clad in a $1,650 3.1 Phillip Lim leather-meets-leopard moto jacket, Queen Bey of the Third Ward is joined by the titillating trio, who lip sync her tease, “Tell me how it’s looking babe,” with gold and diamond-encrusted grills in plain sight. Smalls, Dunn, and Iman slink in Christian Grey-approved lingerie and swimwear—seemingly Hervé Léger—while Beyoncé, ever the eye-candy, flashes her infamous curves in lacy pants, a red-hot one piece, and cheeky cut-off shirts. This, mind you, all happens in 2 minutes, 30 seconds of which you can preview below.
Beyoncé, the fifth studio effort that the Beyhive never saw coming, is now available on iTunes for $15.99.
