It's the first song from 'Lemonade' to have a video released on its own
Beyonce‘s ‘Sorry’ has now got its own standalone video.
The clip for the track, which features on the singer’s latest album ‘Lemonade’, was previously a part of the visual film that accompanied the record.
It is the first video from the album to be released on its own and stars tennis ace Serena Williams. Watch it below, via Pitchfork.
Released in April, the singer’s ‘Lemonade’ album is widely perceived to contain songs about Jay-Z’s rumoured alleged extra-marital affairs and the couple’s subsequent reconciliation.
The track ‘Love Drought’, co-written by Beyoncé, Ingrid Burley and Mike Dean, opens with the couplet: “Ten times out of nine, I know you’re lying / But nine times out of ten, I know you’re trying.”
In an interview with Genius, Burley explained that the song was actually inspired by lies she was told by people working at Beyoncé’s label Parkwood Entertainment.
“Two of the people who were running the label at the time lied to me and told me that Beyoncé wasn’t currently listening to any new music,” Burley said, explaining that she later found out Beyoncé was in fact listening to new music from potential collaborators. “The only way I could really get over it was, like, ‘She’s gonna sing the song I wrote about her label one day.'”
