It’s hard to imagine you have not seen this yet, but whatever the case/your excuse may be: here’s the video for Beyoncé’s “Mine,” featuring Drake and produced by Noah “40″ Shebib, and as shared (looks sort of like a rip?) by OVO team captain Oliver on October’s Very Own earlier today. Directed by Pierre Debusschere, it’s got all sorts of Virgin Mary imagery, Merce Cunningham vibes and contemplative looking Drake. BEYONCÉ is not only iTunes’ fastest selling album ever, it’s also Beyoncé’s fifth consecutive album to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.
Elsewhere on the Beyoncé news front, the Queen B’s released the second chapter of her Self-Titled documentary. Part 1 elaborates on her decision to release a “visual album” and to do so without an announced release date. In Part 2, titled “Flawless,” Beyoncé shares the backstory to that Ed McMahon’s “hip hop rapping” Star Search introduction, reveals that she discovered Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche while cruising YouTube for videos about feminism, and explains the trophy motif. Part three coming probably whenever Yoncé damn well pleases.
