Watch Beyonce Take Over a Strip Club for ‘Partition’ Video
Jay Z is a one-man audience, puffing on his cigar
If you’re one of the millions who bought Beyoncé’s Beyoncé, you’ve probably already seen the steamy video for “Partition.” For those who didn’t pony up to buy the digital album and its accompanying videos, Queen Bey unveiled the short — which was partly filmed at Paris’ Crazy Horse cabaret club — via Vevo today. The narrative follows a bored, rich housewife’s fantasy of being a cabaret dancer, with Mrs. Carter donning a variety of skimpy outfits while husband Jay Z looks on, chilling in the shadows with a huge cigar. There’s no nudity, but the video certainly comes close, so we’d recommend you don’t watch this one in a library.
