Although the Carters were not actually in Los Angeles’ Nokia Theatre L.A. Live, their pre-taped performance was still as exciting.
Hov opened up the clip by taking a seat in a chair onstage under a crimson light as he spit a brand new never-heard-before verse for Bey’s “Partition.”
“Word to Riccardo Tisci, she like ‘Oh my God,’ I’m like ‘Nice to meet me.’/Damn girl you got that Versace, left the curtains open for the paparazzi/A little TMI for you TMZ,” he rapped
On cue, Bey emerged from backstage under a spotlight in front of a large digital screen flanked by dancers on stripper poles. The fans in the sold-out arena shrieked with delight as the sultry chanteuse was shown on the big monitors near the stage.
As she sang, “Driver, roll up the partition, please/Driver, roll up the partition, please/I don’t need you seeing ’Yonce on her knees,” in a glittery leotard, the video panned to the hordes of fans singing along.
