Beyoncé and Jay Z might be battling rumors that insist everything going on behind the scenes is spiraling out of control, but their publicity team is still pushing forward with a happy-go-lucky image. It’s all evident in the first trailer for the couple’s upcoming HBO broadcast of their On The Run concert documentary, which is scheduled to air Sept. 20 at 9 p.m.
In the 50-second black-and-white trailer, Queen Bey serenades hubby Jay with a cover of Nancy Sinatra’s “Bang Bang.” Decked out in a sparkly silver ensemble, the pop titan stands on stage and croons into her mic as Hova sits front row in the audience, smoking a cigar and watching his lady perform the number. Just a few lines into the song, cuts of an old record player begin to flash and scenes from the duo’s colorful show fills the screen. However, these clips aren’t from HBO’s broadcast — the power couple’s Paris shows, which are scheduled for Sept. 12 and 13, will be used for the concert film.
Just a few weeks ago, Akon shared his two cents on the rumors swirling around the couple and their reported road to splitsville. When approached by TMZ reporters, the singer/producer told cameras that their union is more of a moneymaker than anything. “Their relationship has been more of a business to the outside world than an actual relationship,” he said.
Us Weekly reports that Bey already has plans in store for when she decides to announce her split from Jay. A source tells the outlet that “she is done” after the couple wrap up their remaining On The Run tour dates in Paris.
