In a year where nothing seems to be going right, from the deaths of a handful of living legends to generally “realizing stuff” that was probably better left unrealized (à la Kylie Jenner), the release of Beyoncé‘s visual album Lemonade was a much needed bright spot. And now here to save you from your post-election malaise and your Florence Henderson doldrums once again, Queen Bey has returned with a new standalone music video for her single “All Night,” what will have you weeping tears of joy for a solid six minutes thanks to one adorable clip of couples after the next, including some home videos of the star, her husband Jay Z and daughter Blue Ivy.
For anyone who’s watched the pop star’s sixth studio album Lemonade more times than they care to admit publicly, much of this new music video should look very familiar, as a good portion of it was pulled straight from the original hour-long HBO special. Even so, there’s enough additional footage of Bey’s posse of magical black women, the Queen herself looking flawless while traipsing through a field in a Kente print gown, and clips of her wedding to Jay Z that you’re going to want to take a second look.
For those who are still somehow unfamiliar with Lemonade, however, the single Beyoncé chose to break out into its own video, “All Night,” is meant to be the turning point in her visual album in which the couple she’s singing about (which may or may not be her and Jay) are finally able to move past their infidelities and fall in love with each other all over again. So fittingly, the six-minute video is filled with grainy footage of straight, gay, and interracial couples hugging and kissing each other, as well as more home video from Bey’s top-secret wedding (in which she wore an epic wedding dress made by her mom — though her mom says she didn’t like it! — and blue nailpolish), her pregnancy with Blue, and heartwarming clips of them all together sharing touching moments as a family. Whether you’re an official member of the Beyhive or not, you’re going to want to watch this video with a box of Kleenex close at hand.
