Beyoncé shimmers and seduces in the new video for her ballad, "1+1." Co-directors of the clip -- Beyoncé, Laurent Briet and Ed Burke -- experiment with lighting and visual effects to give Bey's "favorite song" off' "4" a cinematic feel. Watch below.
"1+1" debuts a week after Beyoncé's four-night concert series, "4 Intimate Nights with Beyoncé,' where she performed a collection of solo No. 1s, Destiny's Child classics and her recent Billboard 200 No. 1 album in it's entirety.
Let's cross our fingers and toes that we'll see Beyoncé belt "1+1" at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards, as she joins the stellar line up of performers that includes Adele, Bruno Mars, Lady Gaga, Lil Wayne and more. The 2011 MTV VMAs air live from the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunday (Aug. 28) at 9 p.m. EST.
