One of the videos features a romantic moment between Beyonce and her husband Jay-Z, whose wedding ring is spotted as she kisses his hand.
Beyonce Knowles has released music videos for "Love Drought" and "Sandcastles" from her 2016 visual album "Lemonade" on YouTube. The videos are launched following her epic medley of the two songs at the 2017 Grammys.
"Love Drought" video features Beyonce lying down in a stadium as she shows her sultry look in a white dress. The three-and-a-half-minute video then shows some ladies, led by Beyonce, walking on a beach while her vocals can be heard in the background, singing, "Ten times out of nine, I know you‘re lying/ But nine times out of ten, I know you're trying/ So I'm trying to be fair/ And you're trying to be there and to care."
The song is an airy and calming plea to reinvigorating a relationship riddled with trust issues and insecurities. "Love Drought" was co-written by Beyonce's childhood friend, Ingrid, who is now a Houston rapper. Ingrid also contributed to Beyonce's self-titled album.
Meanwhile, "Sandcastles" is a ballad which offers Beyonce's raw voice as she's seen playing a keyboard in a sparse room while singing, "We built sandcastles that washed away/ I made you cry when I walked away/ And although I promised that I couldn't stay, baby/ Every promise don't work out that way, oh, babe/ Every promise don't work out that way."
The four-and-a-half-minute video then shows a romantic moment between Beyonce and her husband Jay-Z, whose wedding ring is spotted as she kisses his hand. They also hug and stare into each other's eyes. These tender acts can be interpreted as Jay-Z's surrender and Beyonce's acceptance of his wrongdoings.
"Love Drought" and "Sandcastles" are the fifth and sixth videos from Beyonce's album after the singer released "Sorry", "Hold Up", "Daddy Lessons" and "All Night" respectively last year.
