The anticipation can finally end.
Beyonce premiered the video for the fan-favorite single “Countdown” tonight, and her baby bump makes its video debut while she gets colorful and crazy paying homage to several musical and style references of the past.
Most noticeable, are her wardrobe and choreography nods to the 1957 Audrey Hepburn film “Funny Face.” But you can catch subtle references to old Vogue spreads with her vibrant, solid-colored and ever-changing bathing suit and background combinations. You can even spot references to the movie “Fame” when Bey auditions in a studio loft.
It seems as though King B is counting up through the decades as she counts down in the song. When she counts, make sure you peep the “IV” tattoo she’s showing off on her ring finger. That’s the matching tattoo she and Jigga got before they eloped.

“Girls” and “1+1″ were cool videos, but this is the best one from her new album. Definitely one of her best.
