“Jealous” – Beyonce shoves everything off a table in one fell swoop.

SONG: 7. “Jealous”
KEY LYRICS: “I’m in my penthouse half-naked/I cooked this meal for you naked” and “Sometimes I want to walk in your shoes/Do the things that I never ever do”

“Jealous” not only contains some of the most potent and glorious imagery of Beyoncé in the entire video album (i.e. Beyoncé shoving everything off the table in one glorious swoop), but it also returns to the theme of Jay Z’s alleged infidelity. Beyoncé not only seems to feel jealous of Jay’s straying eyes, but also his liberty as a man to go out and misbehave. The resolution of the video is Beyoncé being reunited with her man once more, so I guess everything is still cool between King Jay and King Bey.—Meghan O’Keefe
