"I've been drinking" is the first line of Beyonce's new video featuring hubby Jay Z, 'Drunk in Love,' and by the looks of things, we believe her!

Directed by Hype Williams and shot in black and white, the video shows Bey and Jay stumbling around a beach at nighttime and canoodling as they deliver the song. We're not saying the superstar couple is actually half in the bag, though, 'cause maybe they're only acting... in which case someone needs to alert the Academy!

Wearing a barely-there swimsuit with a long sheer skirt, Beyonce manages to be both playful and sexy. She stares seductively into the camera as she alternately dances and writhes in the surf and sand.

Jay, meanwhile, is sipping D'Usse and wearing so many chains that this close to water, he has to be careful he doesn't sink drunkenly to the bottom of the sea.

"We shot in Miami last summer," Beyonce revealed during her iTunes Radio session. "The shoot was extremely effortless and spontaneous and we completely captured the energy of the song."

The clip starts with waves crashing on the shore and a closeup of a trophy -- whether it's for surprising the world with the release of album 'Beyonce' last week (Dec. 13) or its outstanding sales, we don't know yet!
