Beyoncé Filmed One of Her Videos at This Hotel
When we found out that Beyoncé Filmed One of Her Videos at This Hotel we knew we had to cover it!
The New York hotel where Beyonce shot the video “Rocket” is set to profit from the exposure, after it helped play a role in an album that shattered records just a few days after its release.
Beyoncé surprised the world with her iTunes album drop this past Friday. The self-titled “Visual Album” that has 14 new songs and 17 videos that explain the feeling of broke the iTunes records and made us all love Queen B a little bit more…if that that is possible. But what was even cooler was learning about all the great locations where she secretly shot those videos, including Paris, Coney Island Rio de Janeiro…and NYC’s own Standard High Line Hotel. The steamy black-and-white video for “Rocket” was filmed in a Hudson Studio at New York’s architecturally awesome Standard High Line. Here’s the tour of the now-famous room.
Beyonce’s fifth album sold one million copies just six days after being released without promotion, breaking iTunes records.
Parts of the video were shot in a room called the Hudson Studio. The 400 square foot loft features a king bed, a standalone tub, floor-to-ceiling windows, amenities including comfy robes and a huge rain shower, 24-hour room service and free Wi-Fi. If you want to rock it here yourself, the room currently costs $715 a night.
I believe that the most memorable image from the whole visual album, is the sexy bed flop catches when Queen B is flopping sexily onto the room’s king-size bed, decked out with Italian sheets and down pillows.
This is what the bed looks like pre-flop.
Also the hallway sequences were shot in the hotel but nobody was focusing on the hallway here.
While this view is very similar to the one you’d have from a Hudson Studio, Bey is actually not in the hotel at this point in the video…even though the magic of video editing makes it look like she is. These windows have horizontal partitions and the Standard’s are one single pane of floor-to-ceiling glass.
In fact, the Hudson Studio is lined with three walls of floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the Hudson River and Manhattan skyline, views you can see right from the tub which is really amzing.
And while the bathtub in the video looks a lot like this one, this isn’t the actual spot where Beyoncé took her arty plunge. We think it should’ve been, though. The Standard’s freestanding tubs that are boldly placed right in the middle of the rooms, are one of the hotel brand’s iconic design elements. Maybe she was too concerned that someone would see her through the windows and spill the beans?
In her black and white video “Rocket,” Queen Bey is captured alternately writhing on Italian bedsheets, gazing out of the floor-to-ceiling windows towards the Manhattan skyline, and hovering Exorcist-like over the bed in the Hudson Studio at The Standard High Line.
Shot in the 400-square foot (37-square meter) apartment, the seductive video shows the studio’s signature feature, a freestanding bathtub. Located in the heart of the trendy Meatpacking district, the 18-storey tower offers sweeping views of the Hudson River.
We hope you liked our article about Queen B ! She makes everything so special and different like other artists, and that’s why I’m such a big fan and I love her so much. But more than that, I appreciate her for what she has become since she is a great artist !
