[Music Video Premiere] Beyonce Pays Tribute To Dance Montages In Cinema With ‘Countdown’
With a flip of her ponytail and a high-necked unitard, [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Beyoncé[/lastfm] has churned out dance-heavy video after dance-heavy video, always making us jealous that she a) can move the way she can and b) possesses such awesome thighs while still looking healthy. Miss Beyonce is fierce, fun, and real–and her new video for “Countdown” off her latest album 4 showcases that well.
“Countdown” is rife with nods to other dance-heavy moments in pop culture including Audrey Hepburn‘s beatnik Funny Face scene, Flashdance, Fame, and even A Chorus Line with half a dozen Beyoncé clones dancing together.
Purportedly pregnant in this video, Beyoncé looks sensationally gorgeous clad in retro garb, color-blocked and cat-eyed, almost evoking a 1980’s era [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Whitney Houston[/lastfm].
- Does Beyoncé’s new video make you want to get to a dance studio and work it out (like us)? Or is it totally blah? Let us know in the comments!
