Beyonce‘s “Drunk In Love” now faces stiff competition for R&B/hip-hop radio airplay, from Pharrell‘s “Happy” and Pitbull‘s “Timber” featuring Ke$ha. Just as it started to descend the charts, however, Beyonce surprised yet again: On February 14, Hot 97′s Angie Martinez debuted the official “Drunk In Love” remix featuring Kanye West. The next day, Bey herself hinted of a video remix treatment, too.

Recent clips show Beyonce wearing a cowgirl hat and swinging a lasso inside a pen; immediately, they recall West’s more explicit lines in the remix — “You reverse that cowgirl / you reverse, reversing / and I impregnated your mouth, girl.” (Lovely.) Buzzfeed points out that the footage is from a behind-the-scenes peek at a 2011 Essence cover shoot, to accompany a story that Beyonce wrote of how she’s “taking the reins herself” after father Mathew Knowles managed her career for 15 years.

Could Beyonce be using her Essence footage for a remix video? It’s hard to say now, but doing so wouldn’t be new to her — after all, she did use Star Search clips for Beyonce‘s “***Flawless” video. Watch Beyonce’s “Drunk in Love” video teaser up top, then check out the official remix, plus other inspired takes by  Diplo and The Weeknd, in full after the jump.
