Beyonce's new video is a fresh take on a New Edition classic.
Really, it's a lot more simple than it sounds.
The pregnant pop queen dropped the video for her single, "Love On Top," which channels the template of the 80s boy band's "If It Isn't Love" video in both choreography and setting. Beyonce and company kick to the same dance moves that the group -- fresh off the loss of Bobby Brown to a solo career -- cut in '88, and set the whole thing in a simple, bare walled dance studio, just as the R&B group did back during the tail end of the Reagan presidency.
Conspiracy theorists, enjoy this one: the star's baby bump is much less apparent here, though that's more than made up for by her awesome hat. There's something about this song that brings out her sartorial best; remember, it was the first song she performed after announcing she was pregnant at the VMAs, and she was rocking a pretty fancy tux during that rendition.
