Beyonce has released a standalone music video for the infamous “Becky with the good hair” Lemonade song ‘Sorry’, which features a twerking cameo from tennis champion Serena Williams.
it opens with Bey on a bus with a gang of painted women, before seeing her lounging and seething in a mansion where she is joined by Williams, who dances through the halls.
“I got really sore from dancing!” the tennis player joked to WSJ Magazine, adding of the cameo’s origin: “I’ve known Bey for a long time”.
Shot in black and white, the video sees Beyonce give all manner of disdainful looks, the track of course allegedly centring on husband Jay Z’s infidelities.
It opens with a reading of a Warsen Shire spoken word verse:
‘So what are you going to do now that you’ve killed me?
Here lies the body of the love of my life, whose heart I broke, without a gun to my head. Here lies the mother of my children, both living and dead.
Rest in peace, my true love, who I took for granted, most bomb pussy, who, because of me, sleep evaded.’

Her shroud is loneliness, her god was listening. Her heaven would be a love without betrayal.
Ashes to ashes, dust to side chicks.’
