Sony Columbia Records - 05/26/2009

Music World/Columbia Records proudly announces the release of Above and Beyonce Video Collection & Dance Mixes. Providing a showcase for Beyonce's first foray into the world of electronica, Above and Beyonce is a breathtaking assemblage of groundbreaking music videos and dance-oriented remixes of chart-topping tracks from the artist's #1 international smash hit album, I AM...SASHA FIERCE.

Above and Beyonce Video Collection & Dance Mixes will be available nationwide exclusively through Wal-Mart, and at J&R Music World in New York, beginning Tuesday, June 16. Above and Beyonce will also be made available in Canada and Japan.

An essential companion to Beyonce's best-selling I AM...SASHA FIERCE album, the Above and Beyonce DVD brings together the superstar's immensely popular videos from the album, including clips of her new single "Ego" (featuring Kanye West) and the iconic "Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)," whose intricate choreography launched what the Toronto Star called "the first major dance craze of both the new millennium and the Internet." The hour-long DVD includes seven full-length music videos as well as 20 minutes of exclusive behind-the-scenes b-roll footage, making the collection a must-have for Beyonce fans the world over.

Adding to the collection's indispensability, Above and Beyonce includes a pumping party-ready CD of cutting-edge electronica, hit tracks from I AM...SASHA FIERCE remixed for this collection by some of the hottest producers and mixers in dance music today.

Beyonce, whose success on the dance charts dates back to Destiny's Child's "No No No Pt. 1" in 1997, first hit #1 as a solo artist on the Billboard Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart with 2003's "Crazy In Love." She's enjoyed three successive #1 Hot Dance Music/Club Play singles from I AM...SASHA FIERCE: "Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)," "Diva," and "Halo" while a fourth single, the dance mix of "If I Were A Boy" peaked at #2 on that chart. Above and Beyonce includes video clips and remixes of all four songs as well as videos and a remix, featuring Kanye West, of "Ego," Beyonce's latest single.
