In 'If I Were a Boy' music video, Beyonce Knowles will play a hot cop, switching part with her in-video husband.
Beyonce Knowles recently reveals the the concept behind her "If I Were a Boy" music video is similar to 2003 comedy drama "Freaky Friday" where two people switch their parts. "It's kind of like 'Freaky Friday'," she speaks of the music video.
"In the beginning of the video, my husband makes me breakfast and he's excited about it, and I kind of don't have time to eat," the singer says. "As a police officer, I have a male partner and the video goes through our days. My husband's at work and has attractive girls flirting with him but he declines their advances. I have a guy flirting with me, and I flirt back."
"It's about all of the little things that mean so much in a relationship. At the end of the clip, you realize that I was acting out his life, and it all starts over again," the musician, whose real name is Beyonce Giselle Knowles, explains further. "He was a cop and everything that happened was really him doing the same thing to me."
The music videos for her two new tunes "If I Were a Boy" and "Single Ladies" are both directed by Jake Nava, the same man who helped her making "Baby Boy" music video. The videos are scheduled to be premiered on October 13 through MTV, BET, VH1, and Fuse.
Furthermore, both songs are planned to be listed on Beyonce's upcoming third major studio album "I Am...". Her record is expected to hit the market on November 18 under the courtesy of Columbia Records.
As a promotional project, a road show for the album has been announced. She will start the gigs in the Spring of 2009 starting with international dates in Asia, Australia, Mexico, Europe, and United Kingdom before closing the tour in late Summer which dates in North America.
