Beyoncé quietly dropped a bomb on Sunday when she posted a preview of her new music to her website.
"Bow Down/I Been On," which appears to be two different tracks compressed into one, is the first new offering from Mrs. Carter since she released her album "4" in 2011.
If this new sound is any indication, the singer's upcoming album will remind everyone that Queen Bey is holding onto her crown.
We've already covered how this is Beyoncé's world, and the rest of us just live in it, so it's no surprise the 31-year-old was able to pull Oprah Winfrey out to her HBO documentary premiere in New York on Tuesday night.
"I only did this for you!" Oprah told Bey on the red carpet. "I haven’t been on a red carpet in God knows when."
Raise your hand if you're a teensy bit frightened of Beyoncé.
Between the Super Bowl show; the hardcore work ethic ("[I] practice until my feet bleed" will be the new mantra of aspiring performers everywhere); the insane GQ magazine cover a year after giving birth to Blue Ivy; an upcoming HBO documentary she put together; another new album and now a world tour, we're fairly sure she was sent here to either rule us or destroy us all.
After Beyoncé finished her exhilarating halftime Super Bowl set, she received a hug of support from one of her biggest fans: her husband Jay-Z.
A photo posted to Instagram, reportedly by Beyoncé's makeup artist, shows the singer embracing her partner with a huge smile plastered on her face.
Well, at least we know the answer to the biggest question surrounding the Super Bowl: Yes, Beyonce will "absolutely" sing live during the halftime show.
The singer said as much Thursday after showing the world that yes, she can also sing the "Star Spangled Banner" live, when she wants to.
It was a fitting conclusion to Beyonce-gate, which shook some people to their core. Here, we recap Bey's admission with five reactions - feel free to share your own in the comments below:
There are so many questions still up in the air about Beyonce's halftime show, including but not limited to: Will Destiny's Child reunite? If they are, why didn't they tell Michelle Williams not to deny the rumors so fervently?
And, of course, the biggest question of all will be whether we'll catch Bey lip-syncing.
