Beyonce - "If I Were A Boy" Music Video

Beyonce -

Check out the music video premiere of Beyonce‘s “If I Were A Boy”!

“[The video] is about all of the little things that mean so much in a relationship,” the 27-year-old singer has said. “At the end of the clip, you realize that I was acting out his life, and it all starts over again. He was a cop and everything that happened was really him doing the same thing to me.” (Check out the lyrics here.)

The video was directed by Jake Nava, who also did Beyonce‘s “Baby Boy” featuring Sean Paul. The song was produced by Toby Gad, who also worked on Fergie‘s “Big Girls Don’t Cry”.

  • Marina

    Becky did you not just say that you hated the song? And why, oh why, must you wright with caps lock on?

  • iReneee*]

    She’s perfect, the video’s perfect, the song’s perfect! She’ll rock the world with this super powerful ballad.

  • danz

    I don’t like the song very much but the music video is amazing!

  • Ambar

    I like the song a lot. However it was written by a new artist who I guess has to pay the bills and sell her songs to keep her head above water. BC Jean does a far better job on the song she wrote!

  • Liana

    BC Jean didn’t write it, it was written by Carlson/Gad.

    The video shows Beyonce is a true artist, unlike Britney.

  • Ambar

    It’s credited to Toby Gad and BC Jean. Look it up

    I have worked on this album for close to one year. I have taken the time so I can create my sound. Something that says who I am at this stage in my life. I have poured my heart and soul into it. It is my baby. It is the most time I have spent on any project since my first records as a member of Destiny’s Child when I was 15 years old. I have recorded over 70 songs and have created a sound that reveals all of me.

    I dont get beyonce for saying this: and then the first record thats she gets out there: if i were a boy, is not even hers?? Weird dont ya think.

    I get it that artists dont always wright themselves, but if you read what she says on her site (read text above) and then you get to know its BC Jeans song and not only the lyrics. The way BC Jeans sings the song is exactly the way beyonce put it out. STrange!!

  • Kelby

    This video is amazingly genious. I love videos with a storyline and I love the song, the content behind the song, it’s awesome, its a hit. Queen Bee is back! I like Brit’s video too, it’s classic Britney and you can tell that she is back to her old self! I love both!

  • jen

  • Laila

    omgsh! listen to the meaning, its an awsome video!

  • Liana

    If you check the authority on all things songwriting ASCAP you will see that BC Jean did NOT write this song, it was written by Britney Carlson and Tobias Gad.

  • tess

    I was wondering if anyone knows who the male cop at the beginning of the video is.

    Thanks

    for anyone who thinks that this song was bc jeans and beyonce took it, they are wrong. this song was sung by bc just as a demo for beyonce.
    and its much better on beys voice.
