What Sucks...Live Blogging Things That Should Not Be Live Blogged: The Shakira/ Beyonce “Beautiful Liar” Video
When two major artists collaborate it’s important to examine the work they do together. as a music lover, it’s always interesting to see how each individual artists work will influence the others. Thus, I was very excited to see that Shakira and Beyonce teamed up on a song called “Beautiful Liar”. Let’s together look at this piece of work and observe it’s effect on these successful artists.
:03 here we go
:10 All right! There’s Beyonce…
:15 And there’s Shakira! We’re looking at them through some sort of cloud effect. Cool. Sounds like Shakira is singing Beyonce’s name and Beyonce is answering Shakira by singing her name. How cool.
:20 And Beyonce is singing…very nice there- she has such a pretty voice…
:25 Oh, there’s Shakira…I guess she has the vocal part that kind of echoes Beyonce. So nice to see them compliment each other so well. It’s amazing how these two stars can collaborate with their styles being so different…
:33 These two have such great styles- it’s obvious they take their craft very seriously.
:45 I’m enjoying this chorus- and the way each artist is filmed in this room.
:51 And I have to say, I like how they are trading off verses, giving each other a chance to sing lead- they are showing so much professionalism.
1:12: Oh, I guess it’s Shakira’s turn to sing lead. Very nice- again, Beyonce is backing her up just as solidly as Shakira backed Beyonce up before.
1:47 Nice, now we’re back in the chorus. So catchy this tune.
2:04 Oh, they’re they are in the same shot, laying next to each other on what seems like a strip cub stage. HOLY SHIT, PLEASE KISS!
