Video: Beyoncé – ‘Self-Titled’ – Part 3: Run ‘N Gun

Beyoncé and Jay Z

Beyoncé unwraps a Christmas Day present for her fans with Part 3 of her “Self-Titled” documentary series entitled “Run ‘N Gun.”

In the five-minute clip, she reveals that she recorded 80 songs for her self-titled visual album. “It was the songs that were more effortless for me that stuck around,” she said.

The first single, “Drunk in Love,” came about when she was in the studio with Detail, Timbaland, and Jay Z. “It wasn’t about any ego. We weren’t trying to make a hit record, we were just trying to have fun,” said Bey.

She also gives a behind-the-scenes look at the video for the song, which was shot on the beach. “It was just us two and it was perfect.”

Many of the 17 music videos were filmed guerrilla-style in locations including the 4th Ward, Houston, and Coney Island.

“If it was my choice, I would never have a permit. I would just get in the car, get a camera, and we just shoot. And trust me, we tried,” she laughed.

BEYONCÉ is nearing one million in U.S. sales and will likely top the Billboard 200 for a second week. Final sales will be announced on Thursday.

    @meme, A “try hard,” huh? Beyonce WORKS hard and she DOES. To “try” means that you don’t accomplish what you set out to do; you only make an effort towards it.

    @2bad2bme, ACTUALLY… if you listen to the intro of “Mine” she is still channeling her inner MJ.

    I love these videos. Quite cool getting such an insight into her process like this. Love the fact that Bey freestyled in the studio. Explains why this is some of her best work so far.

    I really did not care for Jay-Z’s verse on ‘Drunk In Love.’
