With Lady Gaga, Christina Aguilera and Rihanna on the scene, Beyoncé has plenty of competition for the unofficial title of sexiest pop star.

But the28-year-old singer proved she is still a very worthy contender with the release of her latest racy video.

She plays a red-hot desperate housewife in the retro inspired clip for her new single, Why Don't You Love Me.

Housewife heartache: Beyonce stars in a Fifties inspired film clip for her new single, Why Don't You Love Me


Desperately seeking attention: In the lyrics, Beyonce asks a mystery lover 'why don't you need me'

The star pulls on a pair of cleaning gloves and manages to make even the simplest of chores look appealing.

Sequences show her gardening, scrubbing floors, baking cookies, and and dusting her mantelpiece, which is covered in Grammy awards.

In another scene seemingly inspired by Mad Men, she is on the phone in tears, writhing around on a bed in a Fifties corset while clutching a martini and cigarette.


What a chore: The star manages to make dusting look appealing


All in a day's work: Beyonce gets down to business

She begs a mystery lover: 'Why don't you need me?'

In the end, she surmises: 'There's nothin' not to love about me/Maybe you're just not the one/Or maybe you're just plain dumb.'

The singer also portrays a spanner-wielding character called B.B Homemaker.

Time for a break: Beyonce relaxes in a bubble bath

She wears a red bandanna, plaid shirt and Daisy Duke hotpants while getting oiled up as mechanic.

The video is a Knowles family production with Beyoncé executive producing and her younger sister Solange co-writing the track. 

It was directed by Melina Matsoukas, who was famously at the helm for Rihanna's video for Rude Boy.

The song features as a bonus track off the deluxe edition of her latest album I Am...Sasha Fierce

Although it wasn't released as a single, it got to number one on the US Hot Dance Club Songs chart more than a year after the album's original release.

It was also her her thirteenth number-one hit on that chart.

YAY for Bee releasing this as a single. I'm sure it's just a bonus track off iTunes or something but it's one of the best on the album IMO. It probably won't do very well, mind you, considering it's the 187973867376th single off the album.

What about DISAPPEAR and RADIO, Bouncy?
