Beyoncé's is nominated at this weekend's MTV Video Music Awards in the Video of the Year category for her "Drunk in Love" track. The song's video captivated the world as it showed a playful, loving relationship between Beyoncé and her rapper husband Jay Z, who is featured on the track. The two appear after dark on a Florida beach and give sultry performances for the camera. The black-and-white footage supplies a natural, laid-back vibe to the video—though Beyoncé's dance moves are anything but. Her performance is as memorable as the powerful lyrics she sings while lying on the sand with waves crashing over her.
