A day at the beach for Beyoncé is not like a day at the beach for the rest of us. When Mrs. Carter rolls up at Coney Island in Brooklyn, she rides the Cyclone while wearing a Biggie hat and a bunch of gold chains. And sure she gets the front car every time, but that’s because she’s mixing business with pleasure to film a new video.
According to reports, the singer spent the day at the seaside amusement part on Thursday enjoying some down time with stylist Ty Hunter and some of her dancers, while shooting footage for a video.
Wearing jeans, a white tank with a black bra underneath and the B.I.G. snapback, Bey spent nearly an hour on the ride with a couple dozen extras, according to E! News. Several hundred people gathered to watch the shoot and get a glimpse of the star as she laughed and threw her hands in the air on the 86-year-old coaster. The New York Daily News reported that famed fashion photographer Terry Richardson was directing the clip.
A spokesperson for Beyoncé could not be reached for comment at press time about the shoot or where the footage will be used.
Bey is headed to Philadelphia for the holiday weekend to perform at hubby Jay Z’s second annual Made in America festival , which will also feature sets from Nine Inch Nails, 2 Chainz, Kendrick Lamar and Phoenix.
