Beyonce Debuts New ‘Love On Top’ Music Video

Pregnant Beyonce is certainly showing no signs whatsoever of slowing down – just a week after revealing the music video for ‘Countdown’, she’s back with another one!

Following the October 6 release of her video, “Countdown,” Beyonce has unleashed the full-length visual for her latest single, “Love On Top.” The release surfaces a month and a half after the Pop star performed the upbeat track during this year’s annual MTV Video Music Awards where she revealed her pregnancy.

Remember New Edition? Beyonce Knowles does – plus all their moves from 1988’s “If It Isn’t Love” video. And she’s recreating scenes from that clip step by Brooke Payne-choreographed step in her new video, “Love on Top.”

Yes, it’s only been a few days since Beyonce took us on a very fashionable trip through time in “Countdown,” but she’s already back with a new video – this time joined by a five-member boy band (not the actual New Edition) in an airy ’80s-style dance studio to bounce through this particularly get-happy 4 track.

New jack swing dance moves and costume changes are pretty much the focus of this one. (Apparently “Love On Top” was shot pre-baby bump, so don’t even try scanning this one in slow-mo for “denting” or “crumpling.”) Still, Beyonce reveals a talent we never knew she had: the ability to switch costumes every time she switches keys. (This, it turns out, is a good thing. That pantsless African dictator look in the first scene? Maybe we’re the only ones, but we’re not really feeling Idi Amin-chic this season.)

Beyonce talked to Australian paper the Daily Telegraph about the “Love on Top” clip, saying: “I had an idea for the video based on some of my favorite male groups. I remember seeing videos from New Edition, the Jackson 5 and The Temptations, bands I love for their beautiful harmonies, and precise choreography and I always wanted to make a video and be part of a boy group myself. It was so much fun.”
