    Beyoncé shines in "1+1"

    Beyoncé sparkles in the sultry new video for "1+1." The singer has done away with her legions of followers and banished her ex-boyfriend in this clip, where she remained solo for much of the video.

    Bey beckons for her sweety to come closer throughout "1+1," and in a nod to hubby Jay-Z, she flashed her wedding ring in a tight shot. The giant rock is pretty hard to miss.
