Behind the Video: Beyoncé f/ J. Cole – ‘Party’

A lot goes into throwing a great “Party.” As Beyoncé shows us, it takes a team effort to make a music video. Go behind the scenes with the superstar as she shoots the funky clip for her J. Cole-assisted single in a trailer park.

“The inspiration is trailer trash, ghetto fabulous, out there, edgy,” explained B’s stylist.

The mom-to-be was happy to unwind and just have a good time while shooting in New Jersey. “I like this video. It’s no choreography, no pressure. All I have to do is party and have a good time,” she said, while reflecting on fond childhood memories.

“Growing up, I had really amazing parents and I had a great childhood,” said B. “We went from nicer homes to being in apartments with our lights cutting off. It didn’t matter where we were ’cause we had love and we had so much fun. It’s great when you don’t have as much how you improvise and you have more fun.”
