Countdown to 4: Beyonce Travels the World in 30 Seconds
We know that Beyonce took a yearlong break from music-making before bouncing back with the eagerly awaited 4. Apparently, the downtime did her some good. In the 30-second commercial for the deluxe edition of 4, we see clips of B’s last world tour as she explains how the time off helped renew her sound.
“It’s hard to see when life moves so fast,” Beyonce says in the ad. “So I left the stage, and I joined the audience.” She adds: “I didn’t perform, I observed. And what I saw inspired me.”
What we see in the clip is Bey chillin’, observing, and being fabulous. You get the sense that she gained a second wind during the brief hiatus and channeled that energy onto her new album. The video culminates in a shot of Bey back on stage in a sizzling red number doing what she enjoys best.
4 is up for grabs on Tuesday, June 28. Target’s exclusive deluxe edition is available the same day. — Rizoh
