Beyoncé – Why Don’t You Love Me (Video Premiere)

Beyoncé is STILL releasing songs from I Am…Sasha Fierce. No seriously, have I counted wrong or is this the NINTH single to be taken from it?! Surely that has to be some kind of record?
Anyway, numbers aside, Beyoncé has just released the video for this single, which is set to be released May 17th (although it has already reached the #1 spot on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart).
The video features Ms. Knowles as ‘B.B.Homemaker’, a stylish woman who likes to drink, do housework, and dust off her, oh I don’t know, SIXTEEN GRAMMYS..as you do. There’s crying on the phone, there’s car fixing, there’s a bubble bath…and I like it. It’s shot differently to most videos at the moment, the fact that it doesn’t have a glossy sheen to it it rather nice. It’s a kickback to the olden days, and somehow manages to portray Beyoncé classily even when she’s lying on the floor trying to sip the last dregs of her martini.
The fact that this song is taken from an album released 18 months ago is also pretty impressive. It’s not her best song but it still manages to sound fresh, and full of the attitude we’ve come to expect from Beyoncé.
