New Video: Beyonce – ‘Halo’ (Alternate Version)

Published: Thursday 20th May 2010 by Sam

Though Beyonce is currently on a ‘break’ from the industry, another new video from the superstar singer has surfaced – this time in the form of an alternate version of ‘Halo’ – with an entirely new storyline. Check it out after the jump!

With the original clip for ‘Halo’ having left me disappointed, I must say this alternate incarnation is MUCH better. Boasting an actual storyline, as opposed to the original’s cheap handy-cam produced clip, I’m somewhat surprised this wasn’t used instead.

In any case, word has it this will feature on Bouncy’s forthcoming tour DVD.

Your thoughts?

  6. phittedphilly May 20, 2010

    that made me wanna cry

  7. SPRING May 20, 2010

    so this is taking a break in her own terms????
    i see her true colour now… just a pretender.
    why not bring these videos and commercials out way before kelly’s new LP and Commander????????????????????
    Kelly will still make…
    you keep calling her your sister,… but no am no fool,… not anylonger..
    SMH…

  8. Mr. T May 20, 2010

    Yeah if you guys purchased that Beyonce and Beyond…they had scenes from this video. I was wondering what those scenes were for.

    Love this woman

  9. nOt24seven May 20, 2010

    wow, the cinematography is outstanding!! When this song was original written with Kelly Clarkson in mind, she should’ve kept it! O well, Bey did the damn thing!! \o/

  10. Blasian May 20, 2010

    SPRING

    SHUT UP ABOUT KELLY and go buy her single on itunes which might I add isn’t even in the Top 100

  11. Nicole May 20, 2010

    This made me want to cry but I wish the original scenes were cut.

  12. Kirk May 20, 2010

    OMG…she’s trying to sabotage Kelly. Lol you know kelly’s six stans are gonna come here downplaying her actual talent. Anyway I like this version MUCH more than the original, can’t wait for the DVD.

  13. boytoy1814 May 20, 2010

    BOO !!!!! BOO !!!! GO AWAY BEE-FROG !!!! TIRED OF SEEING YO FACE !!!!!

    WHAT A TRAMP !!!

  14. SPRING May 20, 2010

    @BLASIAN you shut it … beyonce worshipper..
    @BOYTOY1814 thank you…
    SMH..

  15. kveick May 20, 2010

    Yup i have to agree this is way better.

    Did the dude die? And why was he being attacked in the frist place? Kinda sad but it kept me interested. Love Bey and love this song

  16. kveick May 20, 2010

    And she looked absolutely beautiful<3 Especially the parts when she was hardly wearing any makeup 😉

  17. Ben May 20, 2010

    All they did was cut and paste here. The footage from the original and the new doesn’t match up. I am a Beyonce fan, but I don’t really understand, if anything, instead of just releasing new material, or even a remix, she re-does a video for a single that is a year old. They should have just done a completely new video. Trust me, I am no hater like most of you Beyonce worshipers will call me, but what kind of break is she actually on?

  18. !!! May 20, 2010

    I think i liked the orginal better. It painted a better picture of emotions.

  19. jonstrax May 20, 2010

    @BEN THIS WAS SHOT AT THE SAME TIME AS THE ORIGINAL ITS NOT AS IF BEYONCE DECIDED HEY LETS REMAKE HALO. IF YOU THINK ABOUT IT MICHAEL EALY IS IN BOTH CLIPS SO THT ALOND INDICATES IT WAS MADE AT THE SAME TIME. PLUS GET OUT OF HERE WITH THT KELLY S***. WHY SHOULD BEYONCE SIT AT HOME JUST BECAUSE HER FRIEND HAS A SINGLE OUT SMH

    CHECK OUT MY NEW ENTERTAINMENT SITE >>> http://WWW.FRESHURBANENT.CO.UK

  20. jonstrax May 20, 2010

    @BEN THE LAST PART WAS’NT DIRECTED AT YOU LOL

  21. ADE May 20, 2010

    Is this alternate version even necessary?? I mean come on! And she still can’t act, can’t even show emotion at the end when her man is laying dead on the ground…damn shame. She should have just left it alone.

  22. Dominique May 20, 2010

    i love it… I hope Beyonce made a video for Smash Into You.

  23. “Dj Y2k Malone” May 20, 2010

    I love it they should have used this version to begin with

  24. Jamie Grandison May 20, 2010

    You guys HAVE to chill out. THE VIDEO WAS FILMED A LONG LONG LONG TIME AGO.

  25. exposed May 20, 2010

    B**** IS GETTIN THICK YALL!! EVEN WITH THE FOTOSHOPPED VERSION WE ALL KNOW SHE’S 15 LBS HEAVIER IN ALL THE WRONG PLACES ESPECIALLY WITH THAT FAT HEAD OF HERS! SIT DOWN AND DISAPPEAR FOR A LONG LONG TIME. SMH.

  26. Alex Grey May 20, 2010

    I really prefer the original version…

  27. Kross May 20, 2010

    Over her…

  28. Andre Le Dale May 20, 2010

    Very nice Beyonce, I cant deny her drive man lol IT IS WHAT IT IS…

  29. ImHighPrice May 20, 2010

    I would appreciate her more if she would let people miss her so we can anticipate her return…but in the meantime *reads book & waits for “Radio” video to leaked*

  30. ~Team Weezy~ May 20, 2010

    Smh @ the foolish Kelly stans.

    Anyway, the video was cool. I so LOVE Michael Ealy, he’s so handsome. Beyonce looks totally different without so much make-up and in a good way. Get ’em BEY! 🙂

  31. Chinny May 20, 2010

    I think both parts of the video match in the sense that they were comparing what they were going through with how sweet their life used to be. Notice how when the dogs were attacking him, they showed them playing with a puppy? Or when she saw him (dead or unconscious) on the ground, they showed her looking at him sleeping on a bed in the exact posture.

  32. Anne May 20, 2010

    @ IMHIGHPRICE, No one forced you to select this article and watch the video. These old clips are being released for interested fans while she’s on her break. Why do these sick people who let someone else’s work ethic and existence bother them purposefully seek out Beyonce and then say they want her to go away? Kelly’s music will sale or flop regardless of what Beyonce does or doesn’t do. If Beyonce releasing old material effects Kelly then she should retire.

  33. Devil’s Pie May 20, 2010

    @ Anne. Amen.

  34. RIP CHRIS BROWNS CAREER May 20, 2010

    Thunder thigh needs to put down the kfc bucket and take a damn break. More videos coming soon, not to mention her new DVD. Come on now, this is getting ridiculous.

  35. B-Real May 20, 2010

    This is so much better than the original video.

  36. BEYDABESS (DA REAL ONE) May 20, 2010

    PHAIL AT THESE CRAZY KELLY STANS.

    SHE YO FAV B*** YO FAV IS FLOPPIN HARD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    BEY KEEP EM CUMMIN

    SASHA FEARCE STILL GOIN STRONG AFTA 2 YEERS

    WERE YO FAVS AFTA TOO YEERS?

  37. ImHighPrice May 20, 2010

    @ Anne

    I wasn’t throwing shade at Bee and I actually enjoyed the video…but she is over-saturated and she needs to be missed so people will anticipate her arrival and fully enjoy the new material that is to come. This is so that people (that are not stans) won’t be tired of her & think that she is releasing songs from the same album…I’m only speaking the truth

  38. Plain and Simple May 20, 2010

    how you gonna say fail and can’t spell it thumbs down to you

  39. Ghetto Fab May 20, 2010

    Are we really being forced to watch another horrid Beyonce video? She hasn’t learned her lesson from the other terrible ones. Who really cares about the alternate video to halo? The original video was terrible. How about release the damn thing when the single is actually relevant? I did not watch it nor will I be watching it. This is just another sad ass attempt to stay relevant. I’m not buying it and neither should you all. Instead spend your time watching and listening to o other talented artists that aren’t trying that hard.

    NEXT!!!!!!

  40. Anne May 20, 2010

    I think the stan vs. fan distinction is sometimes overstated. Her real fans enjoy her work bottom line. I’m just a music fan period and if you’re going to put out enjoyable material then keep it coming. Many artists have been supported although they were workaholics that lived in the studio and recorded countless albums and songs like Marvin Gaye, Aretha Franklin, or Prince; I don’t recall any campaigns for them to take a break. Bloggers who are sick of Beyonce need to get a life. Read a book or buy a TV with a remote and a MP3 player.

  41. ~Team Weezy~ May 20, 2010

    @Ghetto Fab

    I don’t think anyone is FORCING you to do anything. It is YOUR choice to watch it or not, and it is YOUR choice to comment about your view on Beyonce and her career choices.

  42. Jay May 20, 2010

    I love this version. Like it better than the other version.

  43. BEYONCE VS. WORLD May 20, 2010

    BEY KEEP THESE H*** SCARED THEY DON’T KNOW WHEN U COMING

  44. Jeff_Turnbough May 20, 2010

    I love anything that B does, but I actually prefer the original. Whereas it didn’t have a movie-like plot line, it showed raw emotion, which is what this song is all about.

  45. S*** May 20, 2010

    I like it, Its cool but I cant say if its better or worse… Waits for the radio video.

  46. BLACk May 20, 2010

    SILLY haters, its to funny to watch you all go crazy over this chick.lol worst than the stans, i like the video, cant wait for the DVD to come out.

  47. FUTURE May 20, 2010

    @ Ghetto Fab, I’m glad to know you did not watch it, but her thousands of fans will, it wasn’t made for you, it was made for her fans and it’s clear you are not one. You might not care about her alternative videos but her fans do, and it’s clear you’re not one. You are not buying it but we her fans are. Beyonce is talented enough for us, why do you think everytime she comes out she slays and her albums always go platinum. Girl plzzzzzzz give it up. If you don’t want to support beyonce her fans will. Girl bye.

    Anyways, nice video.

  48. Jerry May 20, 2010

    Damn girl take a break or something…

  49. Trucie May 20, 2010

    Why didn’t we get version the first time around? She just lame!

  50. GangsterA May 21, 2010

    I love it so beautiful great job bey keep it comin

  51. Yellow Gorillah May 21, 2010

    But whyyy nowww!

    That is the problem this song is sooo old and she brings it out now when kelly is coming out just so she can still have people talking about her beyonce knows what she is doing she aint fooling me..!

    But it was an ok video. I don’t think it is better than the original the original was better in my eyes but wateverr ..

    And YES i agree im waiting for the RADIO VIDEO!!

  52. KD May 21, 2010

    @ the Kelly Rowland stans, B doesn’t have to do anything to sabotage Kelly’s music career because guess what she (Kelly) doesn’t have any. I am still waiting to see a glimpse of Commander on any chart…

  53. Mr. Lockhart May 21, 2010

    Uugh i hate when ppl say beyonce is taking light from Kelly or other Celebs and then they fail…..its us as consumers who let ppl fail Beyonce can be up in our face all she wants but if we dont buy anything from her then she isnt the big star she is…so if yall dont want Kelly 2 fail or flop….Then go crazy over Kelly and buy all her albums!! then she will have the same succes!

    like the britney dude said: Leave Beyonce alone!! lol

  54. dakkylove May 21, 2010

    look this is the best Beyonce video from her I Am album period..i am a die hard kelly fan but i dont even see what kelly has to do with this post. i am just happy that i got to watch this video, why didn’t they use this one in the first place?? i love it.

    oh on a side note Kelly is going to do an interview with CNN go to this link to drop your questions http://connecttheworld.blogs.cnn.com/2010/05/20/tuesdays-connector-kelly-rowland/

  55. pinkpop May 21, 2010

    so if RADIO would come out with a video none of you would blame her for disturbing kellys career… you’re all f***inck lame.

    this has nothing to do with kelly and instead of blaming beyonce you better run and buy her single.

  56. GangsterA May 21, 2010

    Pepole.haters remaber no one is hypin u 4 the radio video cuse i know when she release the video or there is a post about her those pepole are gonna say its bad even if it was good and talk s*** and the gonna say all the hype 4 nothing and the same lame comments saying shes trying to outshine kelly.sit down b****.she overated.she worship the devil.shes fat and her all of her videos are pohtoshop.she steal songs.shes a copycat.and comparing her to other artist ec gaga.riri .shes fake (incloding her body and personltey).shes possesd.shes old.she cant act.her mom is ugly and a witch.her husband is ugly and gay or worship the devil.she cant sing(yes someone saied that)her music is evil.she brainwashed pepole.She cant write.she buy her awards.she dont know how to speak. so think of new things to say or should i say a new lie to say and the worst part is just cuse the belive that they act like its true and everybody should belive what they are saying

  57. GangsterA May 21, 2010

    Yes i know pepole will say i am a crazy fan or brainwashed iam just saying

  58. Stoney-Brie May 21, 2010

    ok i have to a point i can say “since beyonce says she loves her works so much she can’t afford breaks that’s fine..i don have a problem with that but only God knows if there’s something behind all this that leads to some sort of selfishness, towards her former band mate >> Kelly..

    All i can say is nothing or nobody stays perfect forever in this world…we all go down at some point…!

  59. Stoney-Brie May 21, 2010

    i knew that Beydamess persona of a dumb person was gon get all up in the negativeness of this post instead of simply commenting on how the video looks…??

    damn some people need life!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  60. GangsterA May 21, 2010

    @stoney b if u talking about me i already comment on the video u stupied b****

  61. Renee May 21, 2010

    I like this version better than the first one. Beyonce is smart. She is taking a break, but still have enough videos and pending television commericals and clothing advertisements to stay on the public’s mind. It’s much better than taking a break, going away and people forgetting all about you. This way, she is still present without having to work because all of this from the videos to commericals and photoshoots for Dereon clothing was done months prior to her break.

  62. Beyoncebreezy May 21, 2010

    Are some of you born retarded?
    This video was AGES ago and it’s great,
    Gucci you obviously liked it since you watched it.

  63. LUV-LEE May 21, 2010

    JANET IS THE QUEEN!!!

  64. pr3ttywild May 21, 2010

    I like the video that was actually released a lot better because it really captured the messaged of the song…You could almost feel the love coming from the screen in the original, this one was okay but I believe she made the right choice in the end.This one was kinda boring to me lol

  65. Love Music May 21, 2010

    Eh…Its okay.

  66. Stacey May 21, 2010

    As long as Beyonce is at least three shades lighter than Kelly, she will dominate. I worked with a guy who was closely related to Farrah, who was in Destiny’s Child. She told him about how they made her tan and darken her hair so Beyonce could be the lightest and not be overshadowed by someone lighter than her. Beyonce’s family is not only hung up on skin color, they know the pulse of people and know that they will alway curry favor to the lightest woman in a group.

    This girl has spent her entire life being the center of attention, and she will continue to work to be the center of attention, and she’s not going to care about anyone, including Kelly, get any shine. Sorry folks, that is the way it is. Truth is that as long as black folks are hung up on light skin, this WILL continue. I’m not really a Kelly fan, but there is no denying that the girl CAN sing, but people refuse to give her or any black women with skin darker than a paper bag a real chance.

    I know I will be called a hater, but those are the facts, and I’m light skinned and know this to be true.

  67. ego May 21, 2010

    LOWE!!!

  68. Qelz May 21, 2010

    This version of the video does not make sense.

  69. goldandrubies May 21, 2010

    Who the fu** cares!!!!!!!!!

  70. DizzyGuy1985 May 21, 2010

    I like this version.

  71. troubleoh7 May 21, 2010

    some people are so stupid.

    1. in this video: the dude stole money and was chased down with dogs
    – beyonce loved him-the end.
    (how do you NOT get that?)

    2.Beyonce is a musician
    – Kelly is a musician:
    how dumb would it be for them to take turns releasing tracks, videos and albums.

    3.Kelly Rowland (Last name still necessary) is a Euro-Techno- Dance track girl now. she’s getting her coins one way or another
    Beyonce is in a different lane

    4. break or no break – she didn’t REmake the video – everyone knows for every 5 minutes of video you watch ANYWHERE! TV or MOVIE or MUSIC VIDEO they FILMED 30 minutes and cut out the other 25minutes.
    They made another version but didn’t use it
    (Now they’re going to sell the alternate version because Beyonce has 1 Million+ that will pay $$$ for it)

    “i dont care if you come for me,
    I want you to come for me!”

  72. Love Music May 21, 2010

    @Stacey

    Wow…I didn’t know that about Farrah. So sad..

  73. huh May 21, 2010

    I agree that we need to miss her but at the same time no other female artists are really bringing it right now so though i’m tired of seeing her, she’s the only one who actually makes me want to listen to music. I still don’t like commander although i’m trying REALLY REALLY HARD to like it 🙁 sorry Kelly you going to have to come harder and i am yet to hear it o TV. And all of you should chill i see lady gaga all over the place and she’s still releasing music why y’all not asking her to go sit down somewhere for a while? oh and what about rihanna who is still releasing singles/videos AND has album coming out this year? SO ALL YOU CAN JUST SHUT THE F- UP AND LET BEYONCE BE cos it’s hard t stop doing something you love to do, WHEN SHE’S BURNED OUT SHE CAN GOO SIT DOWN SOMEWHERE

  74. huh May 21, 2010

    ^^^oops i meant to say i have yet to hear commander on radio NOT TV obvisouly vid isnt out 🙂

  75. FUTURE May 21, 2010

    Beyonce keep doing what you are doing, haters will hate, so its obvious you are doing something right. Right now music is boring without you, I’m tired of seeing lady blah blah and her stiff self, I mean I went to see gaga in concert and she is sooooooooooo stiff, I’m tired of all the gimmicky stuff. BEY hurry up come back

  76. Kime May 21, 2010

    I think this video has a much deeper meaning that the first one. By “I can see your halo”, she actually means, i can see what other people can’t see about you : your love, your tenderness etc. because in the video, he is obviously portrayed as the bad guy – that’s why people are chasing after him. It’s a mix of her perception and reality and both comes toghether in the end.
    THAT said, her acting is still TERRIBLE and her scenes could have been developped a little bit.
    So, while the concept of this video is much better than the one she released, it’s also a lot more depressing and halo for me is a joyful song

  77. SHouw May 21, 2010

    LoL You’re all crazy ’bout this “story” with kelly R and Bee

    This video is out NOW because it’s gonna be on her DVD tour !!

  78. Kenny May 21, 2010

    I love how Beyonce knows that her fanatics will buy anything she puts out, mainly because of people thinking she is a god.

  79. JustReal… May 21, 2010

    I just wanna no why come on & comment about somebody who you dont lik??? If i didnt lik someone i wouldn’t waste my time…assuming if you had actual time obviously not…bad mouthing them and calling them names as if yall have done anything to contribute to the world…thats all…

  80. MeMe May 21, 2010

    I can’t see it.. can u repost it please?!

  81. SnijanaFleur May 21, 2010

    I love this version more because it has more action. I already love this song so much. This is great.

  82. BEYONCE VS. WORLD May 21, 2010

    I NEVER LIKED THE FIRST HALO VIDEO SO BUT I LOVE THE NEW ONE

  83. NAS May 21, 2010

    Is it just me or the concept of this video cast a different meaning to the song whatsoever. I’m getting confused now!!

  84. roadsareendless May 21, 2010

    i agree with S***. i cant really tell if this video is any better, or worse, than the first version. both are really bland with no dancing sequences and bad acting. plus the scenes are cut in a very choppy way, which makes the second edit look rushed. this song deserves so much more. still waiting on the Radio video!

    Kelly stans needa go take their conversations to the Kelly posts. there are plenty of them on this forum.

  85. lisa May 21, 2010

    ONE WORD FOR BEYONCE GREEDY!

  86. BEYONCE VS. WORLD May 21, 2010

    ONE WORD FOR BEYONCE SMART

  87. BLACK May 21, 2010

    WHY is beyonce responsible for kelly career, I DONT GET IT,

  88. Meechy05 May 21, 2010

    Okay. To the Kelly stan @Spring Beyonce is in no way trying to sabatoge Kelly, if your going to Rep for kellz we teamkelly members don’t want to see u whining in a Beyonce post everytime she realeases something, Kelly is still slaying with or without Bey , spring you making kellz look weak by whining all the time, Kelly’s snatching wigs right now and everybody is finally catching on there are more to follow so. In the mean time Rep hard for kellz and stop whining your giving those crazy Bey stans pleasure …..When Kelly takes over 2010 yeah !!!!video comes out in june ,Commander is already number 4 on itunes US dance charts and imma say this will debut at 1 next. Week and many more to come #1 baby….

  89. ~TeAM WeeZY~ May 21, 2010

    @TroubleOH7

    I Co-sign with your entire comment.

    But this was the perfect statement:
    “2.Beyonce is a musician
    – Kelly is a musician:
    how dumb would it be for them to take turns releasing tracks, videos and albums.”

  90. dreamy May 22, 2010

    uh oh … this video no longer exists
    i’m late 🙁

  91. MeMe May 22, 2010

    I have to admit. I love it!

  92. Dane May 22, 2010

    aLL THESE PEOPLE IN HERE TALKING ABOUT BEYONE NOT LETTING KELLY SHINE….INSTEAD OF TYPING ON HERE…YOU NEED TO BE ON ITUNES HELPING HER CRACK INTO THE 100 LIST….LOL…LMAO…..

  93. remmy May 22, 2010

    in the original halo video she’s remembering him. in this one they’re showing like a flashback of how he died. that’s y it’s called halo. she’s remembering him like an angel. he was originally killed

  94. mel May 22, 2010

    All yall stans do is talk about numbers I hope yall realize that America is built on alot of b******* that is why alot of bad stuff is happening in America and alot artist who sell alot in the US are into things that are not good. I am being honest and from the heart……. quality music is not who sales the most but is music that is to uplift you and help you not just to put the artist into a God like position. Be smart Americans and look deeper into an artist before you give them your mind, body, and soul.

  95. fan of music May 24, 2010

    i loved it!
