Behind The Scenes: Beyonce’s ‘Partition’, ‘Grown Woman’, & ‘Flawless’ Videos

Published: Tuesday 11th Mar 2014 by Sam

Four months after its surprise launch, Beyonce‘s self-titled visual album is still dominating on the charts.

Indeed, with more than 3 million units shifted globally already (almost 2 million of which stem from the US alone), the set is on-course to become the superstar’s most successful yet.

Three of the project’s most pronounced talking points are the videos for current single ‘Partition’, Pepsi promotional anthem ‘Grown Woman’, and of course ‘***Flawless’.

The trio, helmed by directorial maestro Jake Nava, receive the behind the scenes treatment in this newly released footage.


You’ve seen the visuals, now see how they were pieced together. Where? Right here on That Grape Juice — after the jump…


Love it!

    This era is absolutely epic. She has thee best team, ever! They work so hard! She hasn’t done one interview for any new stations WORLDWIDE and has sold 3 MILLION records already. This is and will be her biggest album. I can’t wait till the 2015 Grammy awards.

  2. Lovebird March 11, 2014

    Ewwwwwww ratchet ho.

  3. RiriRoyale March 11, 2014

    Just look at this loose p**** lady.

  4. Mariah (Mother Of Divas) March 11, 2014

    Queen Mariah encourages the Lambs to spread love and harmony. Beyonce encourages her fans to spread their p**** lips.

  5. Lovebird March 11, 2014

    Blow is my song though; whenever it comes on when I’m in the gym, I always imagine Colton Haynes walks in and drags me to the locker room. From there he drops his pants down and I go for that vainy awesomeness and make him feel things that he’s never felt before.

    Then from there, he goes at me and bangs me like a s** deprived inmate on fresh meat.

    Blow has to be the next single. Pink is the flavor….

  6. Miss thang March 11, 2014

    She is the biggest star in the world.
    Who else you know can drop an album without promoting for months and see 3 Million?
    Others have hit singles and struggle for that!

  7. Lovebird March 11, 2014

    But Beyonce fans are already loose booty queeny bottoms.

  8. HausMuthaCici March 11, 2014

    You want to talk about loose p****** when Rihanna’s is stalking Drake? B****, take my Colombian balls and stuff them in your mouth, pull them out and tell me they taste like fried chicken.

  9. Keyshia Del Rey March 11, 2014

    Lovebird is the queen of all s**** and that is why Elijah will never want her.

  10. Unbiased March 11, 2014

    Omg she looked so pretty with those black braids. I wish she would wear them more often. I like how we are getting to hear from everyone who was involved in the making of her visual album. Jake has done her most iconic videos.

  11. King Ashanti March 11, 2014

    Can we take a moment to congratulate Rihanna please. Yes b******, today she became the first h** in history to cross land, time and sea to get some d***! Congratulations girl, enjoy your stay at the Holiday Inn because that’s where you and your overused v***** will be staying.

  12. Miss thang March 11, 2014

    not anyone from the nazi talkin about being loose. when Rihanna is known to spread her diseased p**** lips all up and through the industry and not when they pollute their ears to S&M. She been turnin u classless b****** into slores

  13. Lovebird March 11, 2014

    At least Ciara is chasing a man; Ciara is running away from bailiff’s and future’s baby momma’s who want their child support checks.

    Noticed Ciara hasn’t booked a stage in a while, she’s scared of being subpoenad.

  14. Beyonce’sGrammysTho March 11, 2014


  15. truthtea March 11, 2014

    This album sold the way it did because you had to buy it in order to hear the songs. A clever but desperate tactic.

  16. Katy’s kitty kat March 11, 2014

    I work @ at STD clinic and all I see is ugly twinky loose hole bottoms with Rihanna ringtones. That’s the nazi for ya!

  17. OhSoKeri’dAway March 11, 2014

    In my 18 years of living I’ve never heard of a ho who followed a n**** around the world just to smash him. Rihanna on some next level s***.

  18. Lovebird March 11, 2014

    Can we take a moment to congratulate Ashanti on being the first artist wince 2013 to be Ciara’s lesser. We never thought it would happen, congrats gurl.

  19. GoodGollyMiley March 11, 2014

    Did you see Katy at that same clinic dear?

  20. Lovebird March 11, 2014


  21. RitasLipstick March 11, 2014

    Since we’re taking moments to celebrate people I want to take one to thank Rihanna for redefining what it means to be a slag. Kim Kardashian wishes she could 2bh.

  22. Lovebird March 11, 2014

    Not RIHANNA’s fault Katy’s p**** game is weak as hell. B**** cannot keep aan because her p**** so dry she got fire extinguishers under her bed.

  23. ashley March 11, 2014

    Is that why the album stayed in Billboard Hot 200 #1 for three weeks. Is that why it’s still in the top ten? Is that why it’s @ 3 million? After the first day with leaks, the you “had” to buy it excuse became null and void. but continue hating though

  24. Lovebird March 11, 2014

    Coming from a delusional ho who stans for a London bred and known ho who f**** for tracks. Too much irony in that statement, I cannot.

  25. Katy’s kitty kat March 11, 2014

    No hun i didn’t see katy but Rihanna makes her monthly appointments.

    As much d*** as she’s taking, she’ll be coming every week 😉

  26. Lovebird March 11, 2014

    That’s because Katy makes weekly appointments with her surgeon to have her stitches sawn on and removed due to all the fires she starts with her dry pus$y.

  27. BeyonceIsQueen (And You Are A Dog Woof Woof) March 11, 2014

    At least if Rita is a h** she is a h** in one location. Rihanna is a global h**. A h** of the world.

  28. Lolz March 11, 2014

    Shes so pretty. I love it her. POST ON MADONNA WEARING I WOKE UP LIKE THIS sweater already!

  29. Lolz March 11, 2014

    @Truth Tea. No you didn’t HAVE TO do anything. Try again.

  30. KatyKadet March 11, 2014

    Rather a dry p**** than a overused one. I think Rita and Rihanna are competing to see who can sleep with the most men imo.

  31. iconic cici March 11, 2014

    She’s pretty much trash at this point.

  32. Lovebird March 11, 2014

    Death, wasnt Rita spotted in the studio with Ciara’s baby daddy?

  33. Loco4Aiko March 11, 2014

    Where is that b**** Iconic Cici, I have something to say to her.

  34. Lovebird March 11, 2014

    I think all the men who left Katy because of all the blisters and burns on their d*** due to Katy’s weak and dry p**** game think otherwise.

  35. Jewel March 11, 2014

    Yessss Miss Beyonce do ya thing girl. I love behind the scenes. Shows how involved she is. The album is everything.

  36. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) March 11, 2014

    I really should stop commenting on this stupid site .

  37. iconic cici March 11, 2014

    @Lolz no one cares besides you

  42. slay_hive March 11, 2014

    LOL @ b****** saying they gone stop commenting. but the only time they comment is on Beyonce’s post! kii 😀


  43. Loco4Aiko March 11, 2014

    See here b****, you better think twice the next time you want to fix your syphilis lips to talk about Jhene.

    You have the gaul to talk about Jhene’s relevancy in the Mariah thread when Ciara is the one whose certifications only come in copper, metal and motherfucking plastic, not to mention the fact that her baby daddy is nothing more than a glorified s**** donor who makes more babies than he does hits for his Alien Vs Predator lookin ass.

  44. Lovebird March 11, 2014

    And you stan for a baby momma who gets subpoenad on stage.

  45. BeyBeyKing March 11, 2014

    Finish ha!

  58. slay_hive March 11, 2014

    I’m good Ms. Slay_Riah. How are things going over your way?

  59. iconic cici March 11, 2014

    A Jhene Flopniko stan could never drag someone from the Legendary C squad.

  60. Loco4Aiko March 11, 2014

    Let’s get one thing straight w****, if anybody has been passed around it is Ciara.

    Bow Wow.
    Kanye and his boys

    Is that enough or are ya thirsty for more?

  61. Naomi March 11, 2014

    I love her. She is Queen. Jake Nava deffo makes her best videos, he captures her perfectly visually for every video he has done for her songs.

  62. iconic cici March 11, 2014

    @Slayriah and @Slay_hive desperate attempt to be friends is more painful to watch then @Molly sucking @Lovebirds s***** assshole clean.

  63. slay_hive March 11, 2014


    B**** Ciara’s career has been DECEASED and buried YEARS ago!!

    Mrs. Carter steady pulling in those certifications. When was Cierror’s last one? kii

    The b**** is such a flop, her own baby fawtha don’t want her on his album! #THESTRUGGLE!!!

  64. FentySoSnatched March 11, 2014


  65. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) March 11, 2014

    I don’t get why these Ciara Stans are still trying. Lol

  66. SlayshantiDouglas March 11, 2014

  67. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) March 11, 2014

  68. slay_hive March 11, 2014

    I mean it does take Rihanna a year to sell 3 million kiii

    NP- Jealous

  69. CiciFinnaBeABride March 11, 2014

    I don’t see why Mariah’s song is out of the top 2000.

  70. Suicide Blonde March 11, 2014

    Colton is a bottom & that a$$ belongs to Blondie, keep dreaming tho.

  71. BarbBey March 11, 2014

    Iconic Cici has been on my s*** list since she came for Sexlijah.

  72. iconic cici March 11, 2014

  73. DIAMONDS March 11, 2014

  74. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) March 11, 2014


    I’m good. Just thinking of a way to stir up some drama to cause another catastrophic meltdown from the BeyHive.

  75. Jewel March 11, 2014

    Death Ciara stans are a mess.

  76. BeyWhoUWanna March 11, 2014

    I don’t see why Ciara fans think she’s getting married when Future never marries any of his baby mamas.

  77. DIAMONDS March 11, 2014

    It’s just funny to me how rihanna can sell 3 million a year and someone that is supposed to be the king can only do 3 million after a 3 year break some king..

  78. iconic cici March 11, 2014

    @Slay_Hive girl bye Ciara had the biggest r&b song last year that got certified and you make sure you buy king Futures album he doesn’t rely on Samsung to buy his records like Beyonces camel does.

  79. BitchyBey March 11, 2014

    @Slayriah Keep trying b****.

  80. slay_hive March 11, 2014

  83. Yolo March 11, 2014

    Wait. Body Party is still not even Platinum and didn’t even go Top 20 the struggle. Biggest hit? Drunk In love, even Motivation did both those things.

  84. DIAMONDS March 11, 2014

    *plays Diamonds ..a #1 hit in 19 countries*

  85. slay_hive March 11, 2014


    Why did her album still flop with the “biggest” R&B hit? kii and NOT you bragging about a gold single, when Drunk In Love is platinum kiiii

    That t***** is such a struggle! Ashanti will eventually outsell her. just watch b****, just watch kii

  86. iconic cici March 11, 2014

    The C Squad >>>>>>> The rest of you fatherless broke bum f****.

  87. IggyIggyIggy March 11, 2014

  88. BEYHIVE_MINAJ March 11, 2014

    NOOOOO @ Loco4Aiko dragging so effortlessly *wipes tear*

  89. Yolo March 11, 2014

  90. KissesForKelly March 11, 2014

    Fatherless like Future’s children?

  91. iconic cici March 11, 2014

    Ashanti bearly selling 18k b**** she won’t even make it to 60k @Slay_hive go gag on a c*** f*** that’s all your good for.

  92. DIAMONDS March 11, 2014

    I’m not clinging to 4 I’m talking about her latest effort which is at 3 million and she’s this big album artist lol

  93. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) March 11, 2014


    Gurl… Just rest your scalped ass in that coffin while we plan your funeral.

  94. Yolo March 11, 2014

    I think you are forgetting Beyonce is selling 3 million after 3 months. Rihanna did it after a year. Please stop!

  95. iconic cici March 11, 2014

    Im out i hope @FAF @SuperCisus @FutureCiara @Molly @TurntUp4Cici come in here and drag the rest of you f*** im out of here got better things to do unlike Kelly Rowland who’s a full time nanny.

  96. iconic cici March 11, 2014


  97. slay_hive March 11, 2014

    Ashanti pulling in 20,000 as an Independent artist. While ciara struggles @ 57k with a major label, and extensive PROMO! Bet Awards, Every Morning Talk Show, Debuting videos before the Bet Awards.

    Everyone outsells the struggling t*****! Ain’t that why you mad b****? 😀

  98. BEYHIVE_MINAJ March 11, 2014

    @Diamonds LMAO Mediatraffic only count 10 countries in sales. MusiCharts already spilled the tea. Nice try tho. And shouldn’t UNA be at 7x platinum even with a huge international hit? The struggle,I cannot.

  99. DIAMONDS March 11, 2014

    I just can’t believe the H** have the nerve to come for people like Rihanna Britney and Mariah FUCKEN Carey her superiors when hasn’t outsold any of them ..or is even close

  100. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) March 11, 2014


    Is the Re-Up double magnesium yet?

  101. DIAMONDS March 11, 2014

    It’s funny how you can bring up hits when your OWN fav hasn’t had one since 2008 Local Ladies anyone ?

  102. slay_hive March 11, 2014

    I’m sorry, when has rihanna sold 3 million in three months? Specifically 2 Million in the U.S. with a #1 single? Isn’t she supposed to be this super international star? kii

  103. SoGone4Monica March 11, 2014

  104. DIAMONDS March 11, 2014

  110. slay_hive March 11, 2014

    You mean her record sales are more. NOT albums boo

    Sad thing is Beyonce’s WW record sales aren’t too far behind her’s with only 4 albums.

    If Beyonce had seven albums her record sales would be well into the 200 Million sold mark 😀

    Rihanna is such a struggle kii

  111. BEYHIVE_MINAJ March 11, 2014

    @Diamond Try again baby. Nicki has actually sold more than 200k in her first week,and that was only her debut.

  112. jamie March 11, 2014

  113. Kyle March 11, 2014

    Death at C Squad getting dragged.
    Slayriah why are you pinning it on Stephy? Is it because @Ashley clocked you as Diamonds the other day. Stirring up the Hive. I see what you’re doing 😉

  114. jamie March 11, 2014

  128. mypenizfresh March 11, 2014

    It’s crazy to know they have worked so long together. Jake Nava really does put together some of Beyonce’s best videos. He is one of my favorite video directors. Beyonce really is doing a great job with this project. She keeps the focus on what it should be on. Her music, her tour, and her family.

  129. DIAMONDS March 11, 2014

    Your not in charge of me I will post as please f*** outta here

  144. Kiara March 11, 2014

    S** sells, but not nearly enough for Bey who had to prance around like a hell’s kitchen 70s hooker to get only 30 million view in 3 weeks. LMAO. Rih and Shak slayed with 100 million in one week alone to a song that had not a single vulgar lyric in it. And poor Bey had to tell the world how she debases herself in back of limos,on her knees, suckin d***, splashed in c**. Yeah, desperate ratchet h**. And oh, look all the ratchet h**’s who do that s*** coming to her defense. Again, pathetic views for 3 weeks.

  145. Barb B**** March 12, 2014

    Rih and shak slayed? The songs a FLOP lmao.

    I love Beyonce, go girl 🙂

    Slayriah, you SHOULD stop commenting or evening visiting. Seeing as how Beyonce gets the most passionate responses and Mariah gets continually laughed at., I don’t even know why you still bother with ANY form of social media

    haha. Look at you Kiara trying to make free, public views comparable to actual sales. So desperate. That single that those two did came with soooo much build up and when it arrived NO ONE gave a sh*t. Even when they tried to LEZ up the video. And since when has a Rihanna fan had an issue with ratchet or risque? Didn’t Rihanna practically masturbate in one of her videos? Again, HAHAHA. Have a seat.
