In a nod to the retro groove of her 4 single, the video for Beyonce’s “Party” — which premiered this afternoon on BET’s 106 & Park — could have come straight out of 1994, with the neon outfits, bleached and permed hair, and chilled-out attitude of all of Bey’s party guests, which include baby sis Solange, Destiny’s Child sister Kelly Rowland, and J. Cole (replacing Andre 3000, who appears on the album cut). Check out the mama-to-be’s latest directorial effort below.

Rowland, who can be seen grooving alongside her Destiny’s Child amiga near the end of the carefree clip, told us in a recent interview about working with Beyonce, who directed “Party” (along with Alan Ferguson). “Just the way she directed this video, it was nothing short of genius. I’m just so proud of her, cause now she’s directing videos!”
