Beyonce’s “Party” Video: Watch A Preview

Is pregnancy slowing things down at Camp Beyonce? After all, it’s been over a week since the “Countdown” singer premiered a new video, and we were really hoping to get visuals for every single track off 4 by Thanksgiving. While Bey tries to catch up, the public will just have to make due with the summery preview clip for “Party”, which also stars chart-topping rapper J. Cole. Non-surprise of the day: It’s always sunny where Beyonce is.

Back in June, we noted the chill ’80s vibe (courtesy of a Slick Rick/Doug E. Fresh sample) and both Kanye West and Andre 3000’s naughty raps on finger-popping jam “Party”. Alas, for the video mix, Andre has now been replaced by J. Cole, who just happens to be signed to Roc Nation, the label run by Beyonce’s husband Jay-Z. What a coincidence!

And if there was any doubt that Bey and Jay are keeping this clip in the family, in the short sneak peek of the vid, the singer and her posse hang out at a sunny summer backyard party that’s being DJ-ed by Beyonce’s sister Solange.

Of course, we probably don’t have to remind you that “Party” is produced by Hova’s Watch The Throne partner Kanye.

The full “Party” should rage onto the Internet any day now.
