Beyoncé - Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)
Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It) - Beyoncé |
Okay, this song is now stuck in my head, thanks to Matt Crawford, since I've just watched his YouTube video on how he does his hair, and he just had to include this song... So I thought, why not review this video? Beyoncé is fire and she always will be. This song is one I don't like to like, but I actually can't help it. Watch Beyoncé become completely fierce as she dances her way through this music video titled "Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)".
Beyoncé, full name Beyoncé Knowles-Carter, is someone I used to be a fan of, some of her songs are amazingly catchy, just like this one, but her music style has been very versatile, and although that is something to be incredibly proud about, she lost me as a fan in the process because some of her songs I didn't like. I think, maybe, I wasn't a big enough fan and so it didn't work out well. This song is one that gets stuck in my head after I've heard it, but I literally don't enjoy it when I hear it... I honestly believe this is the only song that makes me feel this way, in the whole entire world... Does that make it my guilty pleasure? Surely not... Anyhow, it was written by Christopher "Tricky" Stewart, Terius "The-Dream" Nash, Thaddis Harrell, and Beyoncé Knowles.
The music video was directed by Jake Nava. It was inspired by a 1969 Bob Fosse routine entitled "Mexican Breakfast". The video went viral the previous summer when Unk's "Walk It Out" was dubbed over the original mix. Beyoncé wanted to create something similar.
It is completely in black and white, which isn't something I enjoy watching, which probably explains why I always flipped through the music channels whenever this one came on. I just don't see the appeal with it, unless it's set in the past.
The choreography is on point throughout, I seriously cannot deny how amazing Beyoncé is when she's nailing these moves. It may seem simple, but just like the UK ITV show "Dance Dance Dance" proved, it's not as easy as it looks.
There is so much fire and attitude in this music video that it isn't a surprise that Beyoncé nails this music video entirely. The choreography relates perfectly with the song, and although this music video is in black and white, and not my sort of thing, I have to give it credit, because it is fire. However, I knocked it down because it's not something I would happily watch.
