Beyonce’s “Party” Video Premiering Tuesday With J. Cole Instead Of Andre 3000

Becky Bain / October 21, 2011

Since Beyonce’s “Run The World (Girls)” video premiered in May, we’ve been treated to five videos in total from the pop star, and the visuals for Bey’s sixth single from 4, “Party”, are already scheduled to premiere next Tuesday on 106 & Park. There will be one major difference from the album version and the single, though: Andre 3000’s verse has been replaced with J. Cole. Listen to the new cut below and tell us if he did good on Three Stacks’ spot.

Beyonce feat. Kanye West & J. Cole – “Party” (Single version)

We’re not sure we get Team Knowles’ strategy here — we were barely able to marinate in the joy of “Countdown” before “Love On Top” came along, and now we’re already being served the cameo-filled video (which was directed by Beyonce, FYI) for “Party”? We get filming all your videos early so you can focus on your pregnancy in the later months, but why release them one on top of another? We need breathing room, Bey!
