B-Day pressie! Beyonce releases car-smashing music video for Hold Up to mark her 35th birthday NEW YORK. — It was certainly the most visually striking chapter from “Lemonade”. And to mark her 35th birthday last Sunday, Beyonce finally released the music video to “Hold Up”. While “Sorry” was the song that introduced the world to “Becky With The Good Hair”, “Hold Up” was the song they saw Bey unleash her fury at her, taking it out on some unlucky cars.
The two-part video opens with her “Denial” interlude poem, the visual which sees her float in a completely submerged bedroom, watching her sleeping self.
Seguing into the song, she opens the doors wearing the exquisite layered yellow dress as the waters gushes out behind her.
Borrowing a baseball bat from a child, she proceeds to smash her way along the street, shattering car windows and busting in doors and rooves.
Her mood swings just as wildly, with the smiling and laughing one second, and wailing through gritted teeth the next.
The lyrics of the track had fans wincing for both Becky and her husband Jay Z, whom many assumed had cheated on her upon first listen.
Beyonce received 11 nominations of “Lemonade” at this years MTV’s Video Music Awards, winning eight, including Best Female Video for “Hold Up”.
The song was also one of the five she performed during the show in her breathtaking medley.
The superstar spent her birthday at the “Made In America” festival with its founder and her husband Jay Z, where she was spotted enjoying a chat with former US president Bill Clinton.
