Beyonce drops surprise music video for ‘7/11’

Beyoncé has done it again.

The pop superstar surprised her fans by releasing a new music video for “7/11” on Friday night. The video instantly lit up social media with its low-budget production style and high energy dance moves.

Beyoncé famously released glossy, expensive-looking videos for each track on her self-titled fifth album, but with “7/11,” she goes the opposite route.

The clip for ‘7/11’ includes Beyoncé showing off dance moves on a balcony by herself and with her backup dancers.YouTube The clip for ‘7/11’ includes Beyoncé showing off dance moves on a balcony by herself and with her backup dancers.

The video has a handmade, lo-fi quality as Beyoncé, occasionally by joined her dancers, alternately goofs off and shows off some killer moves. Blue Ivy is spotted briefly in the clip as her mom bounces on a bed, and a man, who many fans speculate is Jay Z, is seen doing a somersault.

But the highlight of the clip is when Queen Bey mimes an angry phone call using her foot. (The moment has become instant GIF classic.)
