Knowles releases a music video for the single Beautiful Liar ft. Shakira from her album B’Day. When asked about the music video and collaboration with Shakira, Knowles states:
We’ve seen each other at a lot of award shows and we have a mutual respect for each other. We kept saying that we have to do something together. Then finally I went to her concert here in New York and I was like we have to do this, this song is incredible. Its rare when two women collaborate and it basically celebrates being a woman. Instead of fighting over a man, we say forget him lets stick together.
