Video: Beyoncé – 1+1

The latest in a series of official videos promoting Beyoncé’s latest album, 4, just hit the Web in the form of “1 + 1”, a steamy, sweaty treatment for her passionate ode to romance. In keeping with Bey’s career-long reputation for hands-on attention to detail, Ms. Knowles herself directed the clip along with Laurent Briet and Ed Burke. Starting off with a straightforward, vocal performance-focused shot, the video quickly  becomes steeped in symmetrical effects, psychedelic colors, and more abstract, slow-motion imagery.
