Model Joan Smalls says she was the one who came up with the idea to taste Beyoncé in the singer’s “Yoncé” video. “That was my idea,” the model revealed a launch party for Nike’s collaboration with designer, Riccardo Tisci. “I just got inspired by the song—[the lyric] ‘Yoncé all on his mouth like liquor’—I’m like, ‘Can we actually see what Yoncé would taste like? Can I lick her?’ And they’re like, ‘Go for it.’ I’m like, ‘Are you sure?’ And I asked her, and she’s like, ‘Absolutely,’” Smalls said.
“I mean, I do what very few people in this world would ever do,” she added while discussing licking Beyonce’s breasts. “Jay Z is a very lucky man.”
The video, which also features models Jourdan Dunn and Chanel Iman, was not scripted. “It was basically us being ourselves, and just in the moment,” Smalls told VF Daily. “It was only a certain vibe, and a certain energy that was required in the video. It was up for interpretation; you could laugh, you could do whatever you want. You just had to be yourself.”
