Drawing on the ‘60s colorful look and sound, the video is truly a feast for the eyes, as well as an assault on them.
Beyonce does little dancing in it, as compared to previous releases, but, when she does, she actually manages to incorporate her baby bump into her moves, as well as the now famous belly-rubbing move she did at the VMAs 2011.
The clips is packed with patterned images, lots of fierce bat-lashing and warehouse dance sequences; in other words, it’s a perfect match for the retro-inspired yet very energetic track, which, now, has just achieved a whole new meaning. MTV
News notes that fans too have received the video with the most glowing reviews, with the majority saying that it’s mature, yet fun; simple, yet not too simple to be boring.
In other words, with the pregnancy, Beyonce has just entered a new stage in her life as an artist.
“I thought maybe having a baby bump would stop her from doing a lot of dance moves, but she was still moving around [and] still looking good,” one fan says for MTV News.
“I think [the video] was super-fun, super-dance-y, lots of energy – I think a lot of people will like it and it’s super-simple too,” adds another, noting how amazing it is that Beyonce is actually showing off her bump in the clip, instead of trying to hide it like other celebrities have done in the past.
“It was really cool! She dances really, really well. Gosh, I wish I could dance like her!” a third fan enthuses.
Others believe that, with the “Countdown” video, Beyonce is targeting more mature women: women like her, who are accomplished professionally but still like to have fun on the dancefloor.
