Beyoncé Plays Dress-Up (and Down) in ‘Partition’ Video
By Radio.com Staff
After shocking (and delighting) music fans this past December with the release of her self-titled fifth studio album, Beyoncé has found various ways to maintain the momentum, from a sexually-charged performance of “Drunk in Love” with husband Jay Z at this year’s GRAMMY Awards to rocking stages around the globe on the latest leg of her “Mrs. Carter World Tour,” which now includes selections from the new album.
Today, the singer released the steamy music video for “Partition,” the album’s third single. It was shot at Paris’ famed Crazy Horse cabaret club, and features Beyoncé performing an erotic chair dance interspersed with images of the singer and Jay Z getting hot and heavy in the back of a limousine.
The video was in part inspired by Bey’s desire to prove that women can maintain their personal sexy even after childbirth.
