Learn of the thought-process that went in to making the 'Beyoncé' tracks.
You can now get a sneak peek of what went on behind-the-scenes on the video shoots for Beyoncé songs 'Haunted' and 'Superpower' from her surprise self-titled 2013 visual album.
A new five minute video, released by Beyoncé herself, shows the creative process that went in to making the Jone Akerlund directed films.
The clip begins with Akerlund learning the news that Beyoncé would be dropping a visual album and goes on to show the thought-process behind the costumes, make-up, choreography, sets and everything else that goes in to making a music video.
"These two videos are a little unique, because it was less choreography than [Beyoncé] usually does. It's a little less performance. It's a slightly different tone than what she usually does" he says in the video. "Part of my challenge with her is to take her to places that maybe she hasn’t been. And, maybe take a step out her comfort zone."
Watch the behind-the-scenes footage above.
