Beyonce is stripping down, throwing the glitz and glam to the side and going ‘black’ for the highly anticipated video/single “Ego” ! Channeling the well received look in “Single Ladies,” Beyonce says “I saw this old tape of Bob Fosseâs wife, and I used that as inspiration. I thought in this world, with all the technology and everything thatâs going on, to strip everything down (was) a great idea. So I kind of did the same thing, but glossy and black for “Ego”.” “Ego,” produced/written with Elvis Williams and Harold Lilly, follows the Sean Garrett assisted single “Diva” and arrives just in time for the “I Am… Sasha Fierce” singer’s World Tour launch. Beyonce’s “I AM World Tour 2009” will reportedly kick off March 26 in Edmonton (Canada) and make rounds through Europe before returning stateside. (see dates here) In related news, Beyonce is rumored to have picked “Broken Hearted Girl” as the follow up to the Ryan Tedder produced “Halo”. Videos for both singles are likely to premiere in the coming weeks. Beyonce’s “I Am… Sasha Fierce” is in stores now. SRC: EW
