Legendary music video director, Hype Williams has been in the game for almost 30 years now. He has directed videos from artists such as the Wu-Tang Clan to Future. However, he says of all the artists that he’s ever worked with Beyoncé stands out above the rest.
“My favorite person to work with artistically is Beyoncé and I’ll explain to you why,” Williams said. “The reason I say Beyoncé, obviously because of who she is, but more so, she just works harder than me. At the time, I didn’t understand that. Like I never met an artist that would run circles around me in terms of her work ethic.”
The two have worked on songs like, “Check On It” with Bun B and Slim Thug, “Video Phone” with Lady Gaga and “Drunk In Love” with Jay Z.
“I’m used to dealing with guys I’d have to force to do stuff. She was just the opposite. She was young, driven is not even the word. She’s my favorite because she inspires me that way,” Williams said.
