Another "Cadillac Records" has made its way out. While the previous clips show either Jeffrey Wright's Muddy Waters, Columbus Short's Little Walter or Mos Def's Chuck Berry, this clip focuses merely on Beyonce Knowles' character, Etta James.

Taking nearly 3 minutes to be watched, it highlights on the moment James is challenged by Adrien Brody's Leonard Chess to sing her Church Bells track, saying she is not woman enough for the song and asking her whether she knows about being in love. Taking the bait, James who is about to leave the recording studio steps back in front of the mic and sings the song whole-heartedly.

A drama musical chronicling the rise of Chess Records and its recording artists, "Cadillac Records" is directed and scripted by Darnell Martin. With a star-studded cast ensemble that also includes Emmanuelle Chriqui, Cedric the Entertainer, Gabrielle Union and Tammy Blanchard, this tale of sex, violence, race and rock and roll is set to be released in U.S. on December 5.

It's so funny how people will take the time to blog about someone that they don't like. I'm sure Beyonce takes time out of her superstar schedule to blog about them. lol. NOT!
