In the video, Martina and Flocka take a trip back in time, putting their own seductive spin on the classic world of Grimm's fairytales. Martina sports an iconic red cape while running through a mysterious forest (actually, L.A.'s Walking Dead set) while Flocka plays the not-so-innocent lumberjack/anti-hero.

"The song is dark and sexy, both musically and lyrically, and I wanted to carry this vibe throughout the video," Martina tells Billboard. As for Flocka's contribution, he says "'Beast' is a dope record and all it needed was some turn up from The Turn Up God himself, Waka Flocka!"
