The Essential Guide To Beyonce’s Surprise Album

"Drunk In Love" "Your breasts is my breakfast."

“Drunk In Love”

“Your breasts is my breakfast.”

SONG: 3. “Drunk In Love”
GUEST: Jay Z (aka Mr. Carter)
KEY LYRICS: “Why can’t I keep my fingers off you?”, “Feelin’ like an animal with all these cameras in my grill,” and “Sleep tight/ We sex again in the morning / Your breasts is my breakfast” (the latter courtesy of Jay Z)

“I’ve been drinkin’, I’ve been drinkin’” Beyoncé confesses right at the top of this track, the Hype Williams-directed video of which showcases a wet, bikini-clad Bey emerging from the sea clutching a trophy of some sort (if you’re thinking it sounds a bit like her video for “Baby Boy,” you’re not far off). Turns out the trophy is a metaphor for Jay Z, who appears later in the video and cops to his unquenchable thirst for King Bey’s B-Milk (see the aforementioned “Your breasts is my breakfast”). Speaking of metaphors, Beyonce compares her husband’s you-know-what to a surfboard (“Grinding on that wood”) during a romp in the tub after a night out at the club. After the drinks have been drunk and the sex has been sexed, the two end up waking up in the kitchen—shades of 9 1/2 Weeks, perhaps?—saying “Oh baby, how the hell did this sh*t happen?” In a good way, though!—Mark Graham
