Beyonce's "Best Thing I Never Had" Video Is Class

After the colossal mega-flop that was "Run The World (Girls)," Beyonce's fourth album 4 had a disappointing debut at #1 after meager first-week sales of 317,000. Yes, I said disappointing and #1 — given that it's Beyonce, this shit should have charted even higher!

Anyway, it's total turn-around time, as "Best Thing I Never Had" gets its video premiere today, and it features a kinder, gentler Bey. Plus, she's showing her T & A in classy Victoria's Secret's finest garb. Bonus points!

Hopefully Bey can ride on the coattails of massively-talented soul legend Michelle Williams, who unleashed her new buzz single "Love Gun" yesterday.

Truth be told, this is my favorite song from this broad since "Halo."  On the new Billboard Hot 100 chart published today, "Best Thing I Never Had" climbed to #29.
