MUSIC VIDEO: Beyoncé - Countdown

As her pregnancy progresses, Beyoncé will be releasing a number of music videos to accompany all or most of the songs from her latest LP "4". In addition to two video edits of lead single "Run The World (Girls)", fans have already been graced with videos for follow-up single release "Best Thing I Never Had" and promotional release "1+1". A video has been shot for "Party" featuring Kanyé West and André 3000; life-long friend and "sister" Kelly Rowland appears alongside Beyoncé, as will rapper J Cole, who features on the upcoming official remix of the song and shot additional scenes for a remix video this past week. Lastly, the premiere of a preview indicates the video for "Love On Top" - confirmed as the next single in Australiua - will also follow shortly. 

With so much to look forward to (even if Bey's videos are notoriously low-budget, especially when done in bulk) I present to you the video for Beyoncé's latest single, "Countdown", which sees the diva doing full choreography despite a rather obvious baby bump. The visuals makes various references to art, fashion and dances of the past, with the most prominent nod being to the late Audrey Hepburn in Funny Face.

Probably not the smash hit she would benefit from at this point, but not bad at all.
