Beyonce gave yet another tease to her upcoming fifth album Thursday with the release of the single "Standing on the Sun" as the backing track for a 90-second video spot featuring H&M's 2013 summer collection.
That's right, it's Bey in bikinis and little else, dancing, writhing and posing on a Bahamian beach. We're sorry, make that, "Beyonce as Mrs. Carter."
The beach sequences, which feature Beyonce as both blond and brunet and no doubt sent sand in places better left to the imagination, lead up to a nighttime tribal scene featuring fire dancers and abundant flames in general.
Jonas Akerlund was behind the camera once again, having directed Queen Bey in a commercial pitching "The Mrs. Carter Show" tour's 10 dates at the O2 arena in London, as well as Lady Gaga's "Telephone" video, which featured B.
The singer is currently on tour in Europe, where she and hubby Jay-Z were spotted taking 15-month-old daughter Blue Ivy out to lunch in Paris. The tour kicks off its North American leg with a June 28 show at Los Angeles' Staples Center.
