Beyoncé looks stunningly sexy but intimidating, provocatively draped in animal skin, in the newly unveiled artwork for her upcoming studio album '4.'
The 29-year-old entertainer is seen with her arms crossed over her head. She is wearing just a black fur scarf cascading down her shoulders sans a bra. The shot covers part of her black string bikini bottom.
Her honey blond tousled hair, styled with a middle parting, drape her shoulders. It's a look that could easily remind you of Britney Spears!
The new album from Columbia Records will release on Tuesday, June 28, 2011.
The title '4' signifies her fourth solo offering, the day of her birth as well as a personal gift to her fans.
Her fans around the world have been urging her to name the album for her special number.
The album was recorded over a year between the spring of 2010 and the spring of 2011, while Beyoncé took time away from the spotlight.
She engaged in what she describes as simple things, including listening to every kind of music she truly enjoys. Her mixed musical gumbo will be displayed on the upcoming album.
The album's lead single, "Run The World (Girls)," premiered on American Idol tonight, May 18 followed by the full length video debut at www.beyonceonline.com.
Filmed in Los Angeles and the Mojave Desert over three days in April, the Francis Lawrence-directed video features over 200 dancers, a menagerie of exotic animals and Beyoncé as the leader of a stunning army of women.
