Beyonce's All Night music video has arrived in high definition. Unlike most love songs, it embodies the elusive complication of being both heart-wrenching and aesthetically pleasing.
The video is a visual tour de force. Besides featuring Jay Z, it includes Beyonce's daughter Blue Ivy, actress Halle Bailey, and dancers in Black Panther berets. It also features real-life context in the form of home footage, a trip to the salon, and a wedding.
Like other videos from Lemonade, the All Night music video is a visually stunning piece of work. Beyonce's performances are top notch and she takes advantage of the visual environment.
There is no question that Beyonce is one of the biggest names in pop. However, her latest album has prompted some critical thought. She and her team have been slow in rolling out videos for Lemonade tracks. Despite her status as a public figure, she has a reputation for being a highly private celebrity.
"All Night" has been a huge hit for the pop princess. It reached No. 38 on the Billboard Hot 100. Also, it has been covered by Marren Morris. This cover showed just how versatile the song is.
Beyonce's video for All Night was filmed as the climax of her Lemonade visual album. In fact, the video was only available to TIDAL subscribers. You can watch the video above.
While many of the songs on the new Lemonade album have been scrutinized for their meaning, the album's "All Night" is one of the album's most notable tracks.
