I ran across this video while poking around the intarwub this afternoon. It's a month or so old, so it's probably been seen by a lot of people already, but it's new to me.
Beyonce Feat. Jay-Z performing their new single Deja Vu on the 2006 BET Awards.
No one can deny that Beyonce is a fucking POWER-HOUSE vocalist. She does not need a producer to mix her voice into perfection, and she's so damn good that she can run around on stage in high heels, succumb to uncontrollable booty shaking convulsions, and even throw herself down on the ground and do the back-stroke on stage ALL while her vocals are still stunningly strong, gorgeous and perfect.
Jay-Z, eh, meh. His flow in this one could use some work, though he does call out the H-O-U-S-T-O-N (!). The great thing here in the video though, is when he says the word "bounce", he reaches out and smack's Beyonce on the ass. Yes, in case you missed that:
Anyways, I'm mainly posting this because I liked the theatrics, costumes, the guitar players' dancing, and I liked seeing a wannabe Tina Turner seizure on the ground while belting out beautiful lyrics flawlessly. Also, I'm quite taken by the bridge that leads into each chorus of the song. And this video is so way better than the Justin Timberlake video I considered blogging about instead.
