Watch: Beyonce Sings a Nancy Sinatra Song in HBO’s ‘On the Run’ Special Teaser

HBO didn’t just treat Beyonce and Jay Z fans to a supercut of clips from their On the Run tour — the new teaser for the HBO concert special of the couple’s tour features Beyonce channeling Nancy Sinatra.

In the 50-second teaser, Jay Z is smoking a cigar while the songstress is on stage, bringing back the 1960s with a smooth cover of Nancy Sinatra classic “Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down).”

After the short new clip, of course, comes the explosion of shots from the On the Run tour. The couple recently wrapped the North American leg of the tour, and both have been teasing the special frequently.

“On the Run Tour: Beyonce and Jay Z” will premiere on HBO Sept. 20.

      Amazing and incredibly successful artists but in the midst of massive gun violence in the black community I would hope that HBO and all parties involved would be a little more tasteful. Definitely disappointed. Part of the problem, glorified gun violence, glorified criminal character and sexy girls. Twisted ideals that are force fed to inner city youth with dreams of being rich by millionaires, all during a national economic depression. All to make more money than they already have. And everyone will lap it up not knowing its another form of genocide. Genocide of the mind, culture and education in the black community.

      Really Variety you’d think you’d know this….Bang Bang was 1st recored by Cher who had a hit with it, written by Sonny, though Nancy covered it, it’s NOT her song. Give Cher her credit. Her song has been covered by dozens of artist over the years but it was Cher 1st NOT Nancy. Also Cher’s had a hit with this song 2 times over the decades.
