Check Out Beyonce’s Two New Music Videos
While it’s customary for artists to debut one single at a time, Beyonce Knowles recently previewed two tracks from I Am…, her third solo album.
In a message posted on her website, the 26-year-old revealed that it took longer to create this “baby” than anything else she’s done in over 10 years. Then again, she did record over 70 songs for it.
“I have worked on this album for close to one year. I have taken the time so I can create my sound. Something that says who I am at this stage in my life. I have poured my heart and soul into it. It is my baby. It is the most time I have spent on any project since my first records as a member of Destiny’s Child when I was 15 years old. I have recorded over 70 songs and have created a sound that reveals all of me. I am in a different place right now and I wanted people to see the many sides of me. The music is upbeat for the dance, fun side and it is reflective, passionate and serious for the personal side. I have taken risks here. I am not afraid and my music will explain it all. There is no label or tag on my sound. It’s me and I am so excited to share it with the world on November 18.”

In the album’s first two videos, we get a chance to see completely different sides of Sasha (Beyonce’s alter ego). In “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It),” the singer relives the conversation she had with Jay-Z prior to their engagement. (At least that’s how I envisioned that talk.) Then in “If I Were a Boy,” Knowles starts with an Obsession ad…takes us through a troubled love story…then ends the whole thing with a twist.
