Anyone who watched Beyoncé's Lemonade visual album knows it's an entire supplemental, independent companion to the album proper. Spoken word segments feature prominently throughout the emotion-headlined phases pegged to individual songs. (Intuition, Denial, Anger, Apathy, Emptiness, Accountability, Reformation, Forgiveness, Resurrection, and Hope and Redemption, to be a completist).
So it's cool as hell that the "Sorry" video is seemingly exactly what appears in the film. Before Serena Williams shows up to get low to that already-classic "tell 'em boy bye" chorus, Bey gives the following grainy-voiced intro set to luscious black-and-white shots of women doing emotive choregraphy on a party bus:
"So what are you gonna say at my funeral, now that you've killed me? Here lies the body of the love of my life, whose heart I broke without a gun to my head. Here lies the mother of my children, both living and dead. Rest in peace, my true love, who I took for granted. Most bomb pussy who, because of me, sleep evaded. Her god listening. Her heaven will be a love without betrayal. Ashes to ashes, dust to side chicks."
From there it's pure, Lemonade-worthy excellence, with that syrup-y coda giving way to a twitchy finale mostly focusing directly on Bey.
