This newly-revealed music video sees the 'Sasha Fierce' singer finding her love interest already dead in the woods.
An alternate version of Beyonce Knowles' "Halo" music video has made its way out. The R&B singer is driving her car on a dark, empty street, while her on-screen lover is being chased by a bunch of men through the woods. When she parks her car on the side of the road and walked into the forest, she finds him lying lifeless.
The music video is directed by Philip Andelman and includes scenes from the previously-released video. Beyonce's love interest is portrayed by actor Michael Ealy, the same man who plays her lover in the old version of the clip.
Taken from Beyonce's 2008 studio album "I Am...Sasha Fierce", "Halo" is co-written by Ryan Tedder. The song coincidentally sounds similar to another Ryan-penned track, Kelly Clarkson's "Already Gone", but the frontman of OneRepublic denied speculation he gave two similar tunes to the female singers.
Beyonce Knowles herself won't rush the follow-up to "Sasha Fierce". Earlier last year, she revealed her plan to take time off for a while before returning to studio and crafting something really fresh and new for her fourth solo album. As of late, she was reported to have started working on the new album.
