In an effort to give a personal family touch to her latest single Déjà vu, pop singer Beyonce Knowles shot the video in her ancestral homeland ‘Louisiana’.
The Crazy In Love singer further said that she dressed herself in a series of vintage clothes like the way her great grand mother used to wear, for the promo.
"In the first half of the video I have a lot of different pictures that are really fast. They're Victorian clothes from the 1800s so my mum searched through all these vintage shops so they would look like these pictures references,” Contactmusic quoted her, as saying.
"I loved it because it reminded me of pictures of my great-grandparents from Louisiana. I shot the video there in Louisiana cos I wanted it to feel like home. It felt crazy walking down the streets that my grandparents walked down, my mother... It's where the family reunions are," she added.
