‘Love on Top’ Video: Beyoncé’s Boy Band Is Here

A few weeks ago, while rattling off a few of the tasks on her Superstar Bucket List — directing, "balance," etc. — Beyoncé mentioned that she might want to create a boy band. And when it is spoken aloud by Queen Bey, it must be so. To wit: The video for "Love on Top," Beyoncé's baby announcement song, in which she fronts a five-guy (or six, counting Bey) vaguely Temptations-y music group. The video will do nothing to silence Beyoncé plagiarism or baby bump conspiracy theorists; the first half borrows from an old New Edition video, and the entire thing was clearly filmed before her bump began to show. (Or began to … fold.) Still, Vulture salutes any artistic undertaking that requires a new costume with every key change. Okay, enjoy!
