Beyonce slips into bikini for new music preview

With a song like "Standing on the Sun," it's only natural that Beyoncé would turn up the heat to promote it.

On Wednesday, the 31-year-old offered a promotional double whammy with a new video featuring the sensuous, drum-heavy track - as well as spicy swimwear from H&M's 2013 summer collection.


As the face of H&M's summer campaign, the pop star wears a fringed bikini while crooning about a passionate love: "I can't deny your desire/Feel like I'm on fire ... Can you feel the heat on my skin?/ Can you feel all of it?/ You and me, standing on the sun."

The singer switches from blonde hair to black, and from outfit to outfit, as she poses under palm trees, dances in the sand and splashes in the water on a picture-perfect beach in Nassau, Bahamas.

Beyoncé's new album is expected to arrive later this year, and she's been on a tear of teases lately that hint at what's to come. There were the two snippets that she turned into a (somewhat controversial) mash-up, "Bow Down/I Been On," and there was the glimpse of "Grown Woman" in her Pepsi commercial that was unveiled earlier this month.

Bey's currently on her "Mrs. Carter Show" world tour, and she gave concertgoers in Paris, France a longer listen to "Grown Woman" on Wednesday:

    'Slips into a bikini' is an exaggeration. 'Stretched into' sounds better.

    Beyonce is a cow and will never be shot from the actual waist down (she is always at an angle)....because of her tree trunk legs...people get so upset when they hear someone say she is not pretty......I think it is funny.....

    She gets WAY to much credit for being beautiful......I wish she and Jay Z would go away....far away!!!!!!!!!!!!

    If it were up to me, Beyonce would never wear more than a bikini. Ever. She's far to beautiful to ever need to cover herself up.

    Alot people r sick of hearing about her. Everyone know shes loves having her ass out thats old news. We need more singers to come out that can sing and dont have to be half nake to be notice. Gay, straight,tranny r bi if you can sing let your talent show. We r so sick of hear from Mrs.Carter. Beyonce ended when she married JayZ a total different person now.

      Don't be biased. Talent comes in many forms. Just because someone has stellar vocals doesn't mean they will automatically be accepted by the public. You need so much more when you hit that stage. Like it or not, Beyonce does have the it factor. Furthermore, all the major pop stars are so much more than just singing. Stage Presence, dancing, singing, be able to command the audience, etc – this is what makes an artist successful. Elvis, Micheal, Tina, Diana, and countless others. Sometimes a great voice is all you need, but more often than not, people want a show! Try to be more objective about what talent is or is not.The true test is can the average person do what Beyonce does or the average entertainer for that matter? The answer is no.

      Sorry Bob, but some men can handle a real woman's body – shape and curves man. It like some men like really skinny chicks who are built like boys. To each their own.

    Everyone's carrier started from somewhere. Self made or otherwise, it doesn't matter. What matters is what they made of the opportunity given them and for that, I give Beyonce a huge thumbs up.

      My dad was on an aircraft carrier in the navy. They usually started from a base in San Diego and would go to places like Hawaii or the Phillippines.

      My girlfriend, who is a herpes carrier, got pregnant on an aircraft carrier. She liked being pregnant so much that she signed up to be a gestational carrier.

      You're so sick of her you're clicking on articles about her and taking the time to even comment. You sound more like a stalker than a rational person.

      And if you hate CNN so much ("cnnlickit") why are you here nutcase?

      Did you know that posting material like that in a public forum can be classified as a form of molestation? If a child were to come in here and read that and it was subsequently reported... Hope for your sake you're not on a public, work or school computer because you could be branded a s e x o f f e n d e r for that. Good Luck with that!

      That's an interesting legal opinion you've presented here, "whoever." Do you have a background in law? Do you mind giving us some sources for that? Or, at the very least, can we have a look at your briefs?

      I disagree. Gay means happy. Hotdog weiners are a wonderful lunchtime snack often eaten at baseball games.
      Baseball, hotdogs, and apple pie are an American tradition. They make me happy (gay).
