Watch the Beyonce cover that has the entire internet abuzz
Late last year, Beyonce re-released her surprise 5th, self-titled LP, and in addition to the album’s original records, Bey threw in this Bobby Johnson-produced banger, “7/11,” which, despite having no real verses, catapulted to #13 on the Billboard Hot 100. Inspired by the record, Kyla Imani, a young guitar-player, New York City resident and Beyonce fan got together with a young video director, Mega, and created her own version of “7/11,” complete with balcony shots, a girl pyramid and a “YALE” sweatshirt to mimic the “KALE” crew neck Mrs. Carter wore in her visual.
It’s well done, it’s refreshing, and it replaces some of the more mature themes of Beyonce’s video with friendly, age appropriate content, without compromising the coherence or musicality of the piece. Watch it above.
Kyla Imani is also an aspiring actress as well as the junior editor of Lil’ Miss Jones in the very popular Jones magazine, not to mention she performed in our inaugural SOURCE360 KIDS in Brooklyn last year. Watch out for this rising star! For more information and entertainment from Kyla Imani, check her out on Instagram, Facebook or YouTube.
