At just 25 seconds in length, the new clip for Beyonce's upcoming HBO documentary is the tease of all teases.
"I always battle with how much do I reveal about myself," Bey says as it begins, before going on to reveal not very much at all. (We get it, she has to save something for the actual event.)
The documentary's pitched as being a more intimate look at the superstar, one directed by the actress/singer/businesswoman/mom herself.
The feature-length project incorporates home movies from her childhood in Houston and chronicles the 31-year-old's rise to being a dominating force in pop culture. It'll also offer a look at Beyonce's personal life as she prepared to return to work after her daughter with husband Jay-Z, Blue Ivy, was born in January 2012.
In addition, fans will get to see plenty of first-person footage, some of which was shot by Beyonce, "in which she reflects on the realities of celebrity, the refuge she finds onstage and the transcendent joy of becoming a mother last year," says a statement from HBO.
In the teaser clip, we get a rapid-fire glimpse at the singer in the studio, on stage, as a kid, and in her private time - which also includes a shot of what appears to be the beginning of a baby bump.
“HBO has a history of pushing every boundary with class and authenticity,” Beyonce said in a statement. “Some of my favorite shows are on HBO, so I am excited that my film will be part of its bold programming. This film was so personal to me, it had to have the right home.”
The documentary will air on February 16, not long after Beyonce performs at the Super Bowl Halftime Show on February 3.
