Unlike the subject of Beyonce's new single, "Best Thing I Never Had," we're thinking that it hardly sucks to be Dallas' Own Symbolyc One right now.
It was back in April that the local product, also a member of The Cannabinoids and Strange Fruit Project, revealed to us that, in addition to acts such as Jay-Z, Kanye West and 50 Cent, he would also be working with Beyonce -- an assertion that was confirmed back in early June when Bey released the S1-produced song "Best Thing I Never Had" as the second single off of her much anticipated 4 release.
This week, more good news for S1: On the strength of "Best Thing I Never Had" and 4's first single, the Diplo-produced "Run The World (Girls)," the album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart.
And it keeps getting better: Yesterday, Bey released the official music video for the S1-produced song -- a clip that finds the pop star flirting with the camera while wearing some very skimpy lingerie (and, OK, a couple wedding dresses, too). Who doesn't want to see that? No one, that's who.
Which, no doubt, is all very good news for S1. Give the clip a much-merited watch after the jump.
