We got to see how [artist id="1236911"]Beyoncé[/artist] would “Run the World (Girls)” in her post-apocalyptic video for the song, and then we attended her wedding in “Best Thing I Never Had.” Now Queen B is throwing a “Party” in her latest video, and lucky for us, we’re all invited.
According to reports, Beyoncé headed to New Jersey to shoot the video. ThatGrapejuice.net reported that Beyoncé was hanging with little sister Solange and former Destiny’s Child bandmate Kelly Rowland and was spotted wearing a fur jacket on set. The song also features Andre 3000, though he wasn’t seen at the shoot.
Rapup.com further reported that the shoot took place at South Brunswick’s Oakdale Mobile Home Park. The site posted photos of Beyoncé from the set in which she wearing a black dress and little black pillbox hat while being driven around in a golf cart. An old-school red muscle car was also spotted on set.
Local website Mycentraljersey.com spoke to some of the area’s residents. “I wasn’t expecting this,” Bill Flaherty told the site. “There’s a lot of good-looking young girls. I’m impressed by the artists doing the painting on the side of the trailer. This is not something that happens every day.”
The video shows some of the area’s charm, and a number of locals were used as extras in the clip. “We had a call last night to be here by 8 a.m.,” the mother of Monica Singleton, an extra in the video, said.
Beyoncé is very busy locking down several videos off her album 4. Videostatic.com reported that Adria Petty, who worked with Beyoncé on her trippy “Sweet Dreams” video, will also work on her “Countdown” clip.
MTV News’ request for comment from Beyoncé’s camp had not been answered as of press time.
