Beyoncé’s ‘Girls’ Video Will Be One of Her Biggest Ever, Says Director

Beyoncé

Beyoncé is pulling out the big guns in the music video for “Girls,” the lead single off her highly-anticipated fourth album. According to the clip’s director Francis Lawrence, the visuals go above and beyond what the superstar has done in previous videos.

“It’ll be big, it’ll probably be one of the bigger Beyoncé music videos ever done,” he told MTV News. “And, I can say that I think the song is unbelievable.”

The famed visionary confirmed “Girls” as the song’s title, but kept mum on the concept of the video. “She would probably have me shot if I said anything. … Some stuff spilled out, but she wasn’t happy about it, so I’ve been sworn to secrecy,” he said, referring to photos that surfaced from the shoot.

“Girls,” which was filmed over several days in California, marks the first music video he’s helmed since Lady Gaga’s Grammy-winning “Bad Romance” in 2009. He hopes Bey’s latest will achieve the same success.

“The Gaga thing took me by surprise, ’cause I’ve done videos for probably 15 years, and I had forgotten what to felt like to have a video premiere and have it be anticipated and have it explode,” he added. “And yeah I hope the same for Beyoncé, but I don’t know if that’s gonna happen. It is a fantastic song, so I really hope that song catches for her, and I think the video’s gonna be really fun and cool and different for her.”

    Whatever happened to the “chill” videos…”Me Myself and I” was my favorite of her solo ones.

    “And yeah I hope the same for Beyoncé, but I don’t know if that’s gonna happen” And we don’t know how the video will impact just like he didn’t think Lady Gaga’s BR would’ve done what it became. But Not try tho lol
