Beyoncé Slays In Her Surprise Video '7/11'

Words: mater mea

In what's becoming the pop star's signature move, Beyoncé released a video for a new song when everyone least expected it.

The Knowles family is obviously on a winning streak this week.

Fresh off the heels of Solange's epic wedding, Beyoncé has fans buzzing thanks to a surprise music video released Friday afternoon.

The video for the song "7/11"—one of two new songs that will appear on the platinum edition of Beyoncé's eponymous fifth album—may be the most carefree we've ever seen her. Noticeably dressed down wearing silly sweaters and underwear, Bey dances around her hotel suite the way we would with our friends if we, you know, had massive hotel suites at the ready for girls-only dance parties. She's funny, she's effervescent, and she knows you care.

Watch the video below (and catch a cameo appearance from Blue Ivy!) to see what we mean.
